Last week, news broke on some impactful changes that are going to effect our real estate market – some good, some not so good. I want to first share the news with you and then share what sort of impact it could have on the market.Read More
Similar to last month, the condo and co-op markets performed very differently: condo sales again declined by double-digits while co-ops experienced another slight uptick in contracts signed.Read More
We recently went into contract on a home with buyers in what was a really huge win for them. Without going into too many details on the property, per StreetEasy, we are in contract for $350 per foot cheaper than the building average. Given this recent success for our buyers I wanted to share some insight into how we made it happen. Here are some helpful tips for negotiating the best deal…
Even if it feels like winter will never end, 2019 is already barreling along, and several of the year’s trends are beginning to crystallize. We’re seeing people work new texture, line, and scale into their spaces in ways that emphasize comfort just as much as style. In short, comfy is in. These three mood boards show some of the themes of what’s trending…Read More

Most everyone wants to know what’s going to happen in the real estate market for years to come. First up is what’s 2019 looking like. While I don’t actually have a crystal ball (shocking, I know), here are my 2019 predictions based on what’s happening locally and globally, and most importantly, from our first hand experiences in the marketplace.Read More

Selling an off-market home is to real estate as a hole in one is to an amateur golfer: you hear a lot of stories about it happening with others, you want it to happen so badly for yourself, but it seldom does.Read More
Last week on my video series Guidance by Glazer which you can check out on our team’s Facebook page, I talked about the ways in which you can detect it’s a buyer’s market. Given that we are seeing a clear cut shift in consumer command (i.e who controls the market), I thought it relevant to share those tips this week.
Last month I was able to share a few tips on how to get the best possible price and terms as a buyer since we are widely considered to be in a buyer’s market. While this is true there are definitely sellers achieving new price records for their homes, and their buildings.
You’ve heard the news, it’s becoming more of a buyer’s market so why not try to get the best possible price for your new home? I don’t blame you! Let me impart some practical tips we implement to negotiate the best terms for our clients.Read More
Who am I kidding, I’m stubborn as a mule. Well, it’s the start of 2017 and what better time to change things up a bit than with a fresh calendar.Read More
I think it’s safe to say that not many of us here in the (mostly) blue state of New York were expecting Donald Trump to get elected president. Political opinions aside, it’s the new reality, and with such uncertainty and surprise, there are surely to be ramifications top to bottom on the political, economic, social, and ecological stages. Having said this, we are here in New York City, and we are homeowners, so let me get down to brass tacks on how I think his election will affect our housing market.Read More
It’s not new to say that the market has shifted: prices are softening across the board and even ultra-hot markets like Clinton Hill, Brooklyn are starting to slow down. Inventory has ticked up and buyer demand has cooled. What does this mean? Well for one, what it doesn’t mean is that the real estate market is dead or doomed or anything so absolute. It means that everyone will have to be a little more strategic, a little more thoughtful about buying and selling, and work a little bit harder.Read More
Yesterday, October 3rd, marked a homecoming for me. As a native New Yorker and a native to 12th street in Greenwich Village, I consider downtown Manhattan my hub. I, like so many of us, am a creature of comfort and despite living in a “big” city, feel right at home in the Village. Not to mention my office is on 14th street and 5th avenue. So after around two and a half years in Brooklyn, my girlfriend and I moved back to Greenwich Village yesterday.Read More
I believe we are living in the ME age – everything is centered around being in the spotlight, being the center of attention. We have presidential candidates who do everything they can to grab the next headline, and reality tv shows that attempt to glorify the mundane – bringing attention to housewives, love seekers, and real estate agents alike. Yes, let's not forget shows like Million Dollar Listing, which has brought so much attention to the life of an agent often times making it seem larger than life.Read More
No, I am not talking about myself.
Although, if you knew me you might say the same thing! Rather, I am talking about the state of the real estate sales market - It’s a strange world out there. One of the proverbial godfathers of my business, Bob Knakal, said of the market earlier this week, “I am confused. I hope we have more clarity by the end of the year, because I’m no more certain where we’re going than I was at the beginning of the year.” While market conditions can never be boiled down to an exact explanation, here are a few thoughts on why it’s so confusing out there!Read More
