Lifestyle Guru, Colin Cowie, Featured on CORE Talks

December 16, 2011
Event Planning, Holiday Entertaining Must-Haves and Real Estate with the Lifestyle Expert

New York, N.Y. (December 16, 2011) – With the holiday season upon us, CORE is pleased to announce the latest CORE Talks subject: celebrity event planner, Colin Cowie. In the latest version of the web series, Cowie is interviewed by his personal broker, Emily Beare, in his New York City headquarters. In the episode, Cowie and Beare discuss the art of throwing a successful event, New York City entertaining essentials, local go-to food shopping spots and Cowie’s latest business venture. Cowie also talks about attributes that create a perfect living space – especially for a constant entertainer – and his custom-designed New York City home which Beare helped to find for him.

“Finding the ideal home in New York City is not an easy feat,” say Colin Cowie, “however, Emily found me exactly what I was looking for. I was able to purchase two top floors and the roof of a new condo in the Flatiron District and combine them to create my ideal apartment, which is the perfect place for me to entertain in.”

“In New York City, finding the perfect home to entertain in is not as easy as it may seem” says Emily Beare, Managing Director at CORE. “It only seemed natural to speak to Colin so he could share his specifics on what he looked for during his personal home buying search and, of course, get his insights on the art of throwing a flawless party, whether planned or at a moment’s notice.”

This interview is in advance of an upcoming episode of HGTV’s “Selling New York” which will feature Cowie throwing one of his signature parties in a multi-million dollar listing currently on the market with Beare. “Selling New York” is HGTV’s second highest-rated program and offers viewers a rare glimpse inside the high stakes world of buying and selling luxury Manhattan properties.
