93 mural

We know you’ve been waiting with baited breath for any information about our new Tribeca development at 93 Worth. There’s been a lot of buzz (including the project gracing the cover of New York Post’s fall new development preview), but not much information has been shared on this new conversion project. Amid the construction this week, we captured a mural artist painting the 93 Worth logo on the alley which will greet potential buyers as they enter the building to check out the model units.

I’m a firm believer that a real estate company’s success, and the brand it builds, is largely reliant on one thing:

Oliver BrownThe agent.

Having worked as a successful agent in the City for over a decade (prior to starting CORE), I have a different perspective on this topic than most.

The importance of the agent as an ambassador of our brand is tantamount to our success.

And never underestimated.
Everything that impacts “who we are” is in the agent’s hands. From handing out a business card with our collective names on it to successfully negotiating and closing a deal.

I am pleased to announce that Oliver Brown has joined us. With over 20 years of experience selling in NY, he has built a business and reputation that is exemplary and we are proud to have him as an ambassador of our brand.

Shaun Osher is the Founder and CEO of CORE.

“On the Market”

The history and conversion of Walker Tower was profiled as a “Haute Property.” Ralph Walker’s vision for the building, initially designed as a telephone building, was preserved and honored through the meticulous restoration and the exhibit honoring the architect’s complete body of work. The care for the original details paired with the luxury finishes and amenities make this an unmatchable residence a New York City “masterpiece.”
