In SNY episode #604 entitled “For some clients, the answer to their real estate woes is written in the stars,” Vickey Barron’s repeat client, Robert Lighton, is ready to sell his apartment at 256 West 10th Street and relocate to Nyack, NY. Vickey is excited to help Robert sell the apartment since she originally helped him purchase it; however, Robert throws Vickey a curve ball when he mentions a precise time to list the apartment as suggested by his astrologist.
Vickey agrees to list the apartment within Robert’s requested timeframe and takes a tour of the reconfigured space. Originally a 3-bedroom apartment, Robert completely renovated the space and converted it into a large 1-bedroom with 9-foot tall solid wood doors, teak wood floors, a redesigned master bathroom and various antique accents.
After touring the apartment and agreeing to list the apartment at $2.825M, Vickey suggests throwing an event for her single clients to mingle and view the space. Robert agrees to the idea as he wants any and every potential buyer to see the property.
Vickey hosts a matchmaking bash in the apartment and is happy to report back to Robert that she received two new offers, one of which was all cash and Robert agrees that it’s a winner.
