Brokers WeeklyAugust 15, 2012
CORE's Doug Bowen loves being a broker — because it's fun.

Bowen and colleague Vickey Barron just sold a Park Slope townhouse at $230,000 over is original asking price after being on the marketing for under four weeks.

532 8th Street is a Neoclassical two-family townhouse half a block from Prospect Park, on a street that received Brooklyn’s Greenest Block Award in 2009.

Built by Williams Reynolds and Benjamin Dreisler, the three-sided bay front limestone is in a consecutive row of 12 townhouses that are completely intact.

The house has an owner’s upper duplex – currently configured as five-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment with a deck and garden access – plus an income producing garden rental.

Bowen told Brokers Weekly: “532 provided us as listing brokers the opportu¬nity to create a com¬petitive platform to maximize the selling price to 14% above the asking price, which was a lot of fun.”

Terry Naini at Town Residential brought in the buyer.
