Last week, David Sanborn and his wife Sofia were kind enough to co-host a cocktail reception in their home at 135 West 69th Street, along with Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon, to benefit The March of Dimes. Currently on the market for $12 million, the couple’s 19-foot-wide townhouse is situated among the area’s most handsome row of brownstones, with several pristine original details included throughout. During the event, everyone got a kick out of checking out Dave’s recording studio, his collection of Grammys and gold records, and the 100 year old teddy bear the couple found in the walls during the renovation of their 1892 townhouse.  CORE CEO Shaun Osher and fellow broker Emily Beare were also in attendance, along with Million Dollar Listing: New York star Luis Ortiz, among other guests.

Last week, CORE’s Limor Nesher was featured in this special real estate segment on FOX-NY. Discussing the growing popularity and benefits of the latest “Try Before You Buy” trend, cameras followed Limor, her client Shira Gavrielov and the seller of her East Harlem listing, located at 158 East 100th Street. “Basically, without the pressure of a broker, the buyer can come to the home, stay a few hours, even stay overnight, and just tryout the apartment,” Limor said.

The home’s seller, Richard Bost, is extremely confident in the effectiveness of this trend among potential buyers. “We realized this ‘try it before you buy it’ is a great way to showcase all the great things about the neighborhood and the apartment,” he said.

Check out last month’s segment of Good Morning America, featuring Limor and CORE agents Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon, as they offer more insight on this trend.
