January 04, 2011
Popular Series Premiers Thursday, January 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

NEW YORK, N.Y. (January 4, 2011) –The excitement of New York City’s high-end real estate market returns to HGTV in the second season of Selling New York. The new episodes, premiering on Thursday, January 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, will continue to follow the group of assertive, razor-sharp brokers from CORE, offering viewers a rare glimpse inside the high-powered world of buying and selling luxury Manhattan homes.

The series’ second season features the agents’ ongoing efforts to keep sales moving, despite jaded buyers and intense competition. In new episodes, viewers will be granted an all-access pass into the most exclusive homes in New York City and witness, first-hand, the innovative marketing strategies that CORE must implement to sell these luxury properties. Some of the unique tactics implemented will include inviting an interior designer to project 3-D renderings in each room of a Gramercy Penthouse to show the space’s potential and tapping into the artistic community of DUMBO in Brooklyn in order to sell a local Penthouse. Viewers will also watch CORE CEO, Shaun Osher, hunt for a luxury Hamptons summer rental and will view the challenges of working with an international seller who is located overseas.

“Selling New York really captures the hard work and integrity of our agents,” notes CORE CEO Shaun Osher. “Season Two will offer viewers not only a glimpse into more spectacular homes, but provides insight into some of the marketing strategies that we employ to close a deal.”

“Selling New York offers an intriguing look at what it takes to move these multi-million dollar properties,” said Kathleen Finch, general manager, HGTV. “The series offers a fun, voyeuristic peek inside some of the city’s most exclusive homes, as well as the ingenious ideas the agents use to increase the odds of a sale.”

Produced by Forget Me Not Productions in conjunction with JV Productions, Selling New York offers a rare glimpse into a world where a solid reputation at the top of the real estate food chain involves swimming with the sharks, going head-to-head with the best, and rubbing shoulders with the wealthiest and trendiest of New York's social, political and artistic elite.
