The Wall Street Journal featured a profile on the long-hidden block of Renwick Street, a single block situated between Spring and Canal Street’s in Hudson Square. Home to four new developments under construction, Renwick Street’s storied history as a location for a number of horse stables has recently undergone a business and residential face lift, as the neighborhood experiences a new wave or development and growth. “I would venture to say that Renwick Street is probably the most changed block in New York City,” says CORE CEO Shaun Osher. At the forefront of the neighborhood’s latest residential development, CORE is managing the sales and marketing efforts at 15 Renwick, a 31-unit residence slated for completion in 2015.



 

Ten: Talking Real Estate Law and The 90’s with Alyssa Soto Brody

24 September, 2014 posted by: Shaun Osher

Welcome to Ten, CORE founder and CEO Shaun Osher’s rapid-fire interview series with prominent CORE figures. Read on to find out how this week’s subject deals with being on the hot seat.

Born and raised in Miami, FL, Alyssa Soto Brody traveled to Manhattan to pursue a career in the city’s fast-paced real estate industry. With experience working in real estate law prior to joining CORE, Alyssa is no stranger to hard work. Here are Alyssa’s answers to Ten questions:

1. What did you do before you found this career? Alyssa Soto Brody TEN
I attended New York Law School, where I focused my studies in real estate transactions and litigation.

2. What has been the highlight of your career?
Selling a unit at 173 Perry Street was definitely an exciting point in my career. It was my second deal ever, and after showing the buyer 52 units in total, we finally settled on the property.

3. What is your greatest daily challenge?
My greatest daily challenge would probably be keeping my eye on the long-term goals and not sweating the small stuff. In an industry where your hard work can take months if not years to pay off, there are days where it’s easy to feel defeated. This industry is very competitive and it is a non-stop grind, so I always have to remind myself that I am fortunate to be doing what I love, even if you don’t reap the rewards right away.

Ten: From The Big Apple to Upstate with Todd Lewin

11 September, 2014 posted by: Shaun Osher

Welcome to Ten, CORE founder and CEO Shaun Osher’s rapid-fire interview series with prominent CORE figures. Read on to find out how this week’s subject deals with being on the hot seat.

Originally from The Sunshine State, Todd Lewin has quickly made a name for himself right here in The Big Apple. As a Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, he finds inspiration in the city’s iconic landscape, but prefers the scenic route when it comes to downtime. Here are Todd’s answers to Ten questions:

1. What did you do before you found this career? Todd Lewin TEN 2
I moved to New York from Miami to pursue a career as a writer. I always knew I’d end up in New York and the rest, I left up to fate. No one thought I would get into real estate, but no one was surprised once I became successful at it.

2. What has been the highlight of your career?
Selling 4 million dollars worth of real estate during my first six months in the business has definitely been one of the major highlights in my career so far. I had no expectations and for the first time, I connected with New York City on a professional level. It’s hard to describe the stimulation and high I felt from establishing myself professionally, especially in a town like this.

3. What is your greatest daily challenge?
Separating business from emotion. I’m a pretty articulate guy, so saying what I think has always come naturally to me. In real estate, I’m constantly having to edit my words or be diplomatic. It could be the most micro situation but you must choose your words carefully. The impressions we make dictate our success so significantly. Sometimes, I step back and pat myself on the back for effectively navigating through a conversation with a client or another broker. It’s super challenging, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

4. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Hopefully living near mountains, forests and lakes. Maybe CORE will expand to upstate New York?

5. Where do you find inspiration?
Everywhere. New York is naturally filled with it – a strangers face, a brick wall, a song, a building facade. Manhattan real estate defines this town in so many ways. We live, eat, breathe and feel this city constantly and that in and of itself is inspiration. Showing a penthouse overlooking hundreds of century year old buildings is a pretty spectacular moment. I try not to take it for granted. Read the rest of this entry »
