In this month’s issue of The Real Deal, Emily Beare was recognized in the magazine’s Data Book supplement.  As one of New York City’s most well-respected and successful brokers, her rental deal at 15 Central Park West was listed as one of the top transactions of the year, priced at $125,000 per month.  In today’s Q&A, Emily provides insight on the intricacies of this city’s real estate market and her own personal journey within the industry.

Emily Beare

What inspired you to get involved in real estate?
I was at a point in my life where I wanted to do something different and my daughter, Elizabeth, suggested I get my real estate license. I always had a passion for real estate and I was already involved with sales and marketing, so it seemed to make sense to get involved in the industry.

How was your listing at 15 Central Park West different than other deals you’ve worked on?
This listing was different because it is simply one of the city’s most iconic buildings. It was very exciting to work on a property of that level. The building is world-renowned and designed by an acclaimed architect, setting it apart from other buildings. The people that came through the door were some of the most interesting folks I have had the pleasure of meeting.

How do you see the Manhattan real estate market evolving?
2013 was the year of irrational exuberance. It will be interesting to see how 2014 unfolds, with rising interest rates and the uncertainty of a new mayor. Developers are hoping to keep up the pace of these record-breaking numbers, but there may be some push back from buyers. It is difficult to know how deep the ultra-luxury market is. We may just find out in 2014. (more…)

News of CORE Managing Director Emily Beare’s new listing at famed 15 Central Park West caused a major stir last week, and not just because of the headline-grabbing $95 million price tag affixed to the property. In a building filled with boldface names, the apartment itself–a combination of two large units on the 35th floor of the taller “Tower” building into one vast full-floor spread–has an interesting story of its own. (Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez even once lived in one of the apartments.) Many have wondered what the in-process renovation will lead to, and now we can finally share the answer. The listing is now online, and pictured above is the floor plan that will result once work is completed.

And as downtown projects go, nothing seems as primed to capitalize as quickly on the favorable market conditions (for the industry) than Walker Tower, the Chelsea building originally designed by the architect Ralph Walker that is now being converted into 50 condominiums.”
