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 »

Marking the official launch of CORE’s latest new development 42 Crosby, The New York Times covered a classic illustration of New York City’s robust luxury residential market. Situated on the corner of Broome and Crosby Streets, the 10-unit Soho building was profiled after unveiling plans to provide private parking to residents for $1 million per space. With space at a premium in NYC, parking is the number one most requested amenity in residential development. “We’re looking at setting the benchmark,” said Shaun Osher. “In real estate, location defines value and parking is no exception to that rule.”

Ten: Michael Rosser on (a Dog’s) Life in NYC

24 June, 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.

As one of CORE’s newest additions, Michael Rosser has already established himself as a respected real estate professional in Manhattan. His nontraditional path to success within the industry, however, offers him a fresh perspective of the market and the city as a whole. Here are Michael’s answers to Ten questions:

1. What did you do before you found this career? Michael Rosser TEN
Before getting into the real estate industry, I was a scientist. More specifically, I was a geneticist performing HIV research for five years in Atlanta, Georgia. Directly out of Georgia Tech, I had the amazing opportunity to work with some of the most brilliant minds in epidemiology. Responsible for identifying HIV at the epidemic’s onset, these men and women were on the front line when one of the most troubling diseases of our time manifested itself. My mentors taught me to examine the facts thoroughly and approach each task with a well-planned strategy.

2. What has been the highlight of your career?
The highlight of my career has been the ability to live in many great cities around the country. When I decided long ago to begin my career in real estate, I never expected travel to be a necessary part of my growth and success in the field.

3. What is your greatest daily challenge?
Taking Lola (my dog) outside for a walk. She was not raised in the city, and being a small dog that has known nothing but expansive turf, the multitudes of Times Square can be overwhelming at times. The transition to the big city life has been tough, but we take many trips to the park and are slowly making progress.

4. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I see myself expanding my business from New York back to the markets that gave me my first experiences in real estate. I would love to be able to represent buyers and sellers throughout the East Coast, from New York, through DC, and down to Florida.

5. Where do you find inspiration?
When in need of a fresh perspective, I turn off my laptop and leave the office. The best thing to do is surround myself with the most creative and intelligent people I know — my friends! Read the rest of this entry »
