Luxury Listings (Sales)
“When I purchased the penthouse at 530 East 72nd my children and I thought we had found our dream home. Not only is the space spectacular but it has such an amazing history to it, from Frank Sinatra living there with Mia Farrow for 10 years to Andy Warhol naming it.
Unfortunately, the renovations took longer than expected and we ended up somewhere else. On 9-30-14 my 2nd exclusive with my 2nd broker expired and I still didn’t have a buyer for it. These were 2 top NYC firms and my cash outlay mounted as did my frustration.
A few weeks into October my daughter Kayla told me she wanted to set up a meeting with her friend from college and the President of the brokerage firm he worked for: Max Davis and Suzanne Miller of Empire State Properties. I was skeptical that a “smaller” brokerage firm could sell my property. But my daughter was persuasive and I agreed to the meeting.
Less than 30 days later I had an offer matching my $4.99M asking price. 30 days to get an offer at asking price after over two years on the market! I was stunned.
Ms. Miller personally oversaw all efforts for my apartment along with agent Senada Fici, who was absolutely tireless and driven to get my apartment sold. Focused and dedicated from day one, Empire State Properties’ determination and capabilities were unmatched by any of the “big” firms I had previously worked with. Ms. Miller believed in the value of my property and delivered fully on that value.
The amount of hard work Empire State Properties exerted to sell my property was overwhelming. It is because of them that I am sleeping better at night. Sincere thanks and appreciation to Suzanne, Senada, Max, and the rest of the Empire State Properties team!”
