In “Center Stage,” CORE’s Tom Postilio proves that multitasking is a must when putting a $13.65 million property on the market. After being brought on to consult on the design and layout of a fully renovated Chelsea townhouse at 233 West 20th Street, CORE CEO Shaun Osher introduces Tom as the go-to broker who will stage all 7,000 square feet of the property and host a unique open house to launch the listing.
