“The couple [who bought the unit] came to one of my other open houses. We had just put #711 on the market a few days before. I told them about this and that I would [show it to them] after the open house. They were buying for their son. They liked that it was a sponsor sale — no board package was needed, they didn’t even need board approval. And they had cash. The apartment was move-in ready and time was of the essence. Their son had to move out of his apartment on the 31st, but he was living in Times Square and we had to close on the 30th because no trucks were allowed into Times Square on [the day of] New Year’s Eve. The sponsors’ attorney came back from vacation on the 29th [to get the deal done]. — Beth Littman, Argo Residential
