5 Things You Didn’t See on This Week’s ‘Selling New York’

07 June, 2013 posted by: CORE

HGTV’s “Selling New York” follows CORE agents as they navigate the country’s most competitive – and compelling – real estate market. Here’s our exclusive, behind-the-scenes look of this week’s episode, “The Pressure’s On,” which first aired on June 7th. For more SNY recaps, click here.

In this week’s episode of Selling New York, veteran brokers Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon are presented with a unique challenge, as they are faced with selling the home of one of television and film’s most legendary actresses, Joan Collins.  As the fourth (yes, fourth) brokers to hold the listing within one year, viewers were certainly in for a treat as Tom and Mickey work to close a deal on the icon’s East Side apartment.

As the listing accumulates more time on the market, Tom and Mickey feel the pressure of not only selling the home, but revamping the decor of the 2,200-square-foot, 3-bedroom apartment, located in The Dorchster at 57th Street and Park Avenue.  While determined to keep the signature style of the Hollywood starlet intact, the two develop creative tactics to attract potential buyers to the home.

Enlisting the help of John Lyle, Mickey relies on the expertise of the high-profile designer to provide an elegant and sophisticated redesign of the home for an upcoming open house.  When asked by Mickey what words come to mind when he thinks of Joan Collins, John responds, “Glamour. Drama. Sexy.” To complete the bold decor concept, Mr. Lyle also calls in a favor from Connie Lee, Director at Doris Leslie Blau, a New York City gallery featuring exquisite antique rugs.  With almost $500,000 worth of textiles donated by the company, the team works to make the apartment showroom-ready.  Next, Tom connects with friend and noted musician Hilary Kole to provide on-site entertainment at the open house event.  The two meet at Steinway Hall, where a representative offers to loan a gorgeous Steinway & Sons piano for Hilary to play during her solo performance.

As Tom and Mickey regroup at Joan’s newly decorated home, they are greeted by the actress herself as she invites the duo in, offering each of them a glass of champagne.  As the three make their way into the apartment, Joan is thrilled with the pieces added to the home and anxious to see the fruits of Tom and Mickey’s hard work come to pass.  As the team finalizes the A-list invite list for the open house, both Tom and Mickey prepare to welcome some of the area’s top brokers and guests to the unveiling of the property.

The day of the open house arrives, as brokers and members of the media file into the apartment for a tour of the newly-appointed home. Wowed by the sophistication and drama of the bold new interior, guests are found mingling, conversing over the home’s features and enjoying the sounds of Hilary Kole.  Overall, the open house proves to be a success,  a truly fitting ode to Mrs. Collins.

Dear Foreign Buyer,

As a broker who often works with foreign buyers and investors, I am more than familiar with the difficulty of navigating through the wacky world of New York City Real Estate.  With the right team in place, the process can be an educational and exhilarating experience.

To begin the process it’s essential to understand the financial snapshot of a NYC purchase before you begin shopping. This would include guidance and support from an attorney, accountant, and tax advisor.  Once you fine-tune the purchase, a property manager may be an additional team member you should have in place to deal with landlord matters.

With the help of an experienced real estate broker, you can count on these experts to help you manage your purchase in New York City.
