Best Apartment I Ever Sold invites our agents to share the unique story of their best selling experience to date. This week, learn why Patrick Mills’ sale at 305 West 16th Street, 2H is his best one yet.
While I of course appreciate beautiful design and homes that make you say “wow”, I am motivated more by the relationships I build with my clients and sometimes even their dogs! With that said, when I reflect on the best apartment I ever sold, it’s no surprise that I immediately think about 305 West 16th Street, 2H and the people who sold and purchased it and of course, the dog that lived there.
Apartment 2H at 305 West 16th Street was my 60th transaction in the building and although beautifully designed and well decorated, I really connected with the newly married couple who were selling it. Furthermore, I also found a friendship in the couple who bought it and were just about to get married. And then of course there was Mousse, the sellers’ chocolate lab who was the mascot for this great Chelsea home.
The aesthetic of the apartment was very warm and worldly, decorated with pictures from the sellers’ travels across the globe. A certificate for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was prominently displayed, and simply being in the space gave a sense that the sellers lived a very full life. On top of all this, Mousse, the sweetest chocolate Labrador you’ve ever met, brought the home to life and filled each room with love.
It was fitting that a lovely couple, just a few months from getting married, came to the first open house and immediately fell in love with the home and Mousse. There was no doubt that the pair felt the warmth and love the sellers had brought to the home. The couple wasted no time and quickly submitted a full ask offer. We closed 45 days later. Since then, the buyers have made this apartment their own and even brought a new mascot, their golden retriever, Bailey!
This was an extremely quick and easy transaction, but it was the people and Mousse that left a lasting impression on this seasoned broker.
