CORE Attracting Top Talent Already This Fall

September 20, 2011
New York, NY – (September 20, 2011) – After a successful summer, where the brokerage achieved stunning sales velocity on new development, reaching 75% sold and in contract at 650 Sixth Avenue, The Cammeyer, and over 50% sold at 305W16, in just 3 months, CORE has also been rapidly attracting top-producing talent. In the past two weeks alone, the brokerage has added four of Manhattan’s most stellar agents.

“We are extremely fortunate to have added these experienced agents to our team. Their keen understanding of our unique business model, company culture, and brand is what attracted them to CORE, and they are as passionate about the evolution of this industry as we are,” said CORE CEO, Shaun Osher. “I'm looking forward to working alongside them to continue building their business and our brand.”

Top agent, Lawrence Rich has seven years in the real estate industry with Prudential Douglas Elliman. Among Lawrence’s notable achievements was selling an incredible 20 multimillion-dollar transactions within his first 14 months as a real estate agent which secured him a top spot in the industry. Also remarkable during the recent market downturn, he sold a $14 million dollar Park Avenue apartment. Another year, he sold three apartments at 310 East 53rd Street in just one day.

“In the short time that I've been at CORE, I am impressed with the individual attention that I have been given to try and develop my business,” notes Rich. “Everyone at the company is easily accessible and eager to help you succeed.”

Coming from Halstead, Ivana Tagliamonte has over a decade of real estate experience and is sought-after for her expertise in the Gramercy neighborhood, as well as in Greenwich Village and the Flatiron District. Renowned for her significant number of loyal clients both domestically and internationally, Ivana is continually sought after as a resource for her insight into each distinct New York City neighborhood. With her thorough knowledge of the Manhattan real estate market and its trends, paired with her excellent communication skills and an innate understanding of the needs of her clients, Ivana prides herself on her ability to develop valued relationships with both buyers and sellers.

“CORE is an innovative firm with a powerful marketing advantage,” says Tagliamonte. “They have tremendous reach and remarkable resources while being small enough to react and adjust to an ever changing NYC market. I’m thrilled to be a part of such a dynamic group of people and trendsetters.”

In addition to Rich and Tagliamonte, twenty-five year industry veteran, Jeffery Smith and international specialist, Jennie Ma, both from Corcoran, are also new recruits to the firm. Smith was a member of Corcoran’s Multi-Million Dollar Club within the first two years of joining the company and was also one of the 25 top brokers in the entire firm during one of his many years there. Ma was a member of the Million Dollar Club and the top rental agent at Corcoran’s Village office for two different months.

“After careful consideration and several interviews, I know that I’ve made the right choice in CORE,” notes Jeffery Smith, Senior Vice President, Associate Broker. “I appreciate the unique professional and positive support that I receive from the firm and an environment can only be found at this exceptional broker’s-minded boutique firm.”

Jennie Ma, Vice President, Associate Broker at CORE says, “I am very excited to be here. It is a wonderful opportunity being a part of this dynamic firm and I look forward to growing my business as I take advantage of all that CORE has to offer.”

The Cammeyer - 75% Sold and in Contract

September 06, 2011
NEW YORK, NY - (September 6, 2011) - The Cammeyer, CORE's exclusive new development at 650 Sixth Avenue, has recently reached over 75% units sold, with even more in contract. Only eleven units remain since CORE quickly sold 30 properties in the building after becoming the exclusive brokerage in March 2010. Prior to CORE's involvement, only 20 of the building's 66 units were sold and in contract by previous brokerages after sales in the building began in May 2007.

After selling out multiple lines in The Cammeyer, CORE is focused on the sale of the remaining studio lofts within the B, C, D and N lines. The spacious studio lofts feature hardwood flooring, ceilings that soar at 10-feet, oversized windows and range in size from 701 to 802-square feet. In addition to the lofts, a corner 3-bedroom and one penthouse with abundant, sun-splashed outdoor space are all that remain in the building.

Built in 1892, The Cammeyer has become one of Manhattan's most distinguished landmarks. Located at 650 Sixth Avenue, in the Ladies' Mile Historic District, the building once housed the world's largest shoe store. In 2007 it was converted into loft residences, with 67 condominium units. In addition to a full-time professional staff including a Resident Manager, and 24-hour concierge, The Cammeyer provides residents with a gym, a private storage room for every unit located on the same floor, and a beautifully planted 3,600-square foot common roof-deck with views of the Empire State Building.
