Best Apartment I Ever Sold: Gerry Kendrick

25 July, 2017 posted by: CORE

Best Apartment I Ever Sold invites our agents to share the unique story of their best selling experience to date. This week, learn why Gerry Kendrick of the Kendrick Korant Hung Team’s sale at 455 Central Park West, 18C is his best one yet.

When asked about the “best apartment I ever sold”, it’s been a challenge to pick just one because I go over and beyond with each property I market. Each property has its own unique features and no deal is exactly alike. But given the task at hand, I choose the sale of 455 Central Park West, 18C as one of my most outstanding recent accomplishments.

I was approached by the owner to take over marketing efforts since reportedly the listing was getting very little traffic. I knew the reason wasn’t the actual apartment since the home was a grand 3-4 bedroom, 4 bathroom property with splendid views of Central Park, Upper West Side and the Midtown skyline. It also wasn’t the fact that it was located in a unique residential complex comprised of both a modern tower and a converted French Renaissance style landmark building. Nor was the home getting very little traffic because of the amazing amenities such as 24-hour concierge, spa/fitness center, indoor lap pool and lovely common garden. And finally, it wasn’t because it was right across from beautiful Central Park!  So, what was the reason there had been so few showings at 455 Central Park West, 18C to date?

After visiting the property, I felt this home needed a luxury look to fit with the building and price.  I also knew that I had to raise awareness to the consumer (and even some agents) that 455 Central Park West actually existed. From a visual perspective, there was a modern tower juxtaposed with a landmark building and it was not easily identified as one luxury condominium. From a market perspective, this condominium, having been built circa 2002, was competing with other new developments receiving all the attention. So, the challenge: Presentation, promotion and marketing!

I immediately enlisted the help of stager Cathy Hobbs from Design Recipes to maximize the space and to give it the modern luxury look it deserved. Professional photographs were taken, a floor plan was created and the listing was put together in the best possible way. To promote, we held additional invite-only events which were attended by leaders and influencers in the interior design, architecture, publishing, entertainment and real estate industries. Finally, I devised an advertising and marketing strategy which amped up the listing presence in design publications and included digital marketing, substantial direct mail campaigns and personal and mass communications within the New York City real estate community.

Overall, I felt that this home was uniquely positioned to sell at the best price the market would bear. I ultimately was able to create a market for this lovely home and obtain multiple offers in the end.

Dwell Diaries: 455 Central Park West, 18C

455_Central_Park_West_18C_01

Dwell Diaries provides a peek at a “day-in-the-life” in one of CORE’s exclusive listings. From master suites to neighborhood hotspots, our diary doesn’t spare a detail!

Waking up at 455 Central Park West, 18C is nothing short of perfection. A morning in this white-glove condominium begins as you’re awoken by sunlight pouring in through the windows. Why not extend this blissful wake-up by indulging in a spa-like bath with sweeping Central Park views directly from the soaking tub and glass shower? After a relaxing bath, it’s time to enjoy a coffee and bagel from one of the best bagel joints in New York, Absolute Bagels, located right around the corner. Who can resist this morning ritual?

One of the best parts about living in this Upper West Side residence is getting to live the best of both worlds. While it’s located in a quiet residential area away from the hustle and bustle, you are still close to every convenience. For example, Columbus Square is just a short walk away, providing one-stop shopping for those Sunday morning errands. Once the errands are completed, head across the street to the Great Hill, the most lovely spot in Central Park for picnics and ‘Great Jazz on the Great Hill’. Once the music comes to a close, walk down to The Pool, an area surrounded by grassy banks and weeping willows. The Pool flows into the Ravine, which feels like a forest hidden from the Manhattan skyline.

After a fun day of activities and relaxation in the park, enjoy a delicious Italian meal from Macchina followed by a fantastic dessert from Silver Moon Bakery. When it’s time to return home to 455 Central Park West, 18C invite some friends over and take advantage of the open living room layout, grand dining room and spacious kitchen, all making the home the ideal place for entertaining. A day-in-the-life at 455 Central Park West, 18C will truly make you feel like you are living in a castle by the park.



 

TEN: Fashion, Finance and Real Estate with Gerry Kendrick

22 January, 2016 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.

One half of The Kendrick-Korant Team, Gerry Kendrick prides himself on extraordinary customer service. Here’s a glimpse into Gerry’s life in TEN questions.

1. Tell me something about your home. GK LA BIO Pic With a casual luxury feel, open kitchen format and majestic views of Riverside Park and the Hudson River, my home is great for entertaining family and friends on any occasion. A private balcony provides an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of city life and can become an extension of the interior space when needed.

2. What did you do before you found this career?
I began my career in sales and marketing in the fashion industry. Because I wanted a strong business foundation, I went back to school for my MBA. During and after my studies, I interned and worked for two international banks in capital markets and in financial reporting and analysis (yes, a major change of pace!). And right before I decided to enter the world of real estate, I worked in finance for a global fashion retailer which actually brought me “full circle” in terms of incorporating all my previous experience. An EVP & Sales Manager of my previous firm suggested that I try real estate sales after being downsized in a corporate reorg and I never looked back!

3. What has been the highlight of your career?
It has always brought me great joy to assist my clients in finding the perfect home or helping them maximize the return on their own real estate investments. Providing that extra level of customer service and helping first time buyers is very rewarding. After all, The Kendrick-Korant Team motto is: Beyond Ordinary Service!

4. What is your greatest daily challenge?
My greatest challenge is to remain positive in light of the pervasive negativity in today’s world.

5. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I actually see myself still selling real estate in NYC perhaps rolling out to other parts of the country such as Los Angeles or Miami.

6. Where do you find inspiration?
My main inspiration comes from my friends and close family members and the notion of becoming a better person on all levels on a daily basis.

7. What’s your favorite restaurant?
I would have to say that Bottino in West Chelsea is my favorite, but don’t tell anybody! A close second for a more casual feel would be Rocking Horse Cafe in Chelsea. Try the amazing gourmet burritos!

8. What’s your favorite movie or book?
This is tough, but I would have to say that Mulholland Drive, directed by David Lynch, is my favorite movie. No matter how many times I watch it, although wonderfully directed and intriguing story line, I can never figure it out! That’s a good thing because I’m always up for a challenge! I have to mention American Beauty, directed by Sam Mendes as my second favorite. Annette Bening is flawless in her character.

9. What do you do in your free time?
I’m out socializing.

10. Name one thing we might not know about you?
I was trained in classical ballet and modern dance.
