Million Dollar Listing

We can t all be Fredrik Eklund: Thousand Dollar Listing shows le上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝ss glamorous life of NYC broker Web series pokes fun at Bravo reality show

Life is rough if you re not Fredrik Eklund.

Noah Kaplan, a broker with the Corcoran Group, shows the less glitzy side of New York real estate with his web series, Thousand Dollar Listing. The show pokes fun at Bravo s Million Dollar Listing, by documenting Kaplan s work as a broker in Bushwick and Williamsburg, the New York Post reported.

“Two years in, I would say that it’s been a struggle,” Kaplan says during a promo for the show. “Last year I made $31,000. The year before that I made I think $9,000.”

Suffice to say that the drama in this show上海千花网论坛 上海千花网 probably won t involve designer dog boutiques or dirty爱上海 爱上海同城手机版 mansions.

Kaplan, who rents a pad in Park Slope with several flatmates, worked at the front desk of CORE Group six years ago when Eklund and business partner John Gomes were brokers there. According to Kaplan, he turned down Eklund s offer for him to be his assistant.

The takeaway? Brace y爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fourselves because television mig爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛ht have been wrong: Being a broker in New York isn t all high kicks and lavish open houses. [NYP] — Kathryn Brenzel

UPDATED: Monday, Dec. 11, 5:02 p.m.: Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his investigators subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for banking records of people close to President Trump.

The Guardian上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛 reported that investigators have since received records from people affiliated with the president.

The special counsel is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians connected with the Kremlin in the lead-up to the 2016 election. The Deutsche subpoenas were sent several weeks ago, according to the Bloomberg report.

Deutsch爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛e has previously denied similar requests for documents made by Democratic lawmakers, who wanted more information on $300 million Trump owes Deutsche from past real estate loans. Congresswoman Maxine Waters specifically wanted to investigate whether those loans had any connection to Russia.

Deutsche has settled multiple investigations related to how it helped Russian clients move money out of that country and into the United States, but after its own internal review to see if Trump s business ever overlapped with its so-called mirror trading services for Russians, Deutsche found that it had not.

According to numerous reports, Mueller s investiga[……]

No 421a? Williamsburg developer foots tax bill anyway Credits for buyers range from $23K to $80K for up to 2.5 years

62-66 North Third Street

The developers of a Williamsburg condominium are offering to pay up to $80,000 in taxes for buyers who go into contract by the end of the month.

The building in question, 62-66 North Third Street, does not benefit from 421a abatement like other large projects on the Brooklyn waterfront. To entice buyers, the sponsors decided to offer an abatement of their own and will pay up to 2.5 years of property taxes on units that go into contract this month, Bloomberg reported. The payments will range from $23,000 for a one bedroom to $80,000 for penthouse.

“People say, ‘I won’t go into anything without a concession,’ said David Dwek of Duke Equities, which is developing the project with Flatiron Real Estate Advisors and MJM Contracting. It s a checklist item.

Thousands of Brooklyn condo buyers have reaped the rewards of tax abatement programs like 421a, which gave developers (and buyers) tax breaks for up to 25 years. The replacement program, passed last year, is more restrictive.

So far, two of the building s 1爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1f3 units are in contract, according to StreetEasy. Available units include a one-bedroom seeking $1.4 million and a three-bedroom asking $3.075 million. The average price per foot is $1,520, on the high end for Williamsburg, where last year s median price per foot was $1,204. [Bloomberg] E.B. So上海夜网论坛 上海夜网lomont

The world s biggest private RE investor has a new boss Tom Arnold to take helm of 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区Abu Dhabi Investment Authority

Tom Arnold and Waterline Square

The Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, the world s largest private investor in real estate, has named a new leader for its property division.

Tom Arnold will take over as global head of real estate from Bill Schwab at the company effective June 1, according to PERE News. The company is the largest private real estate institutional investor in the world with $47 billion in assets. Its New York investments include the luxury residential development Waterline Square , the London Hotel at 151 West 54th Street and the Edition Hotel at 5 Madison Avenue, which it purchased in 2015 for about $337 million.

Schwab held his position at ADIA for nine years. ADIA’s real estate team quadrupled in size under his tenure, and the company also increased the number of projects it manages internally. ADIA is currentl新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区y estimated to have up to 50 million square feet of development either underway or planned.

Schwab came to ADIA from JPMorgan, and although he is expected to stay in real estate, his next role is unclear.

Arnold came to ADIA from private equity firm Cerberus Capital Partners and has also previously worked at Credit Suisse and ING Financial Services. His current role at ADIA is deputy global head of real estate. [PERE N上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛ews] – Eddie Small

National Cheat Sheet: With $23B in deals, Brookfield unseats Blackstone as top dealmaker in North America … more

Clockwise from top left: LaSalle taking another look at Pebblebrook as Blackstone declines to up its offer, News Corp subsidiary shells out $210M for Austin-based real estate startup, FAO Schwarz will return to Manhattan in November with a new flagship store, and Brookfield’s $23B in deals this year makes it the top dealmaker in North America.

Brookfield’s $23B in deals this year makes it the top dealmaker in North America
Brookfield Asset Management has a higher total value of real estate transactions this year than Blackstone Group, making it the top real estate dealmaker in North America, Bloomberg reported. Brookfield logged $23 billion worth of transactions this year — aided in large part by its acquisition of a 66 percent stake in mall owner General Growth Properties, which cost the company $15 billion. Brookfield Property Partners chief executive Brian Kingston said the company “look[s] for places where people are running away from.” “Ultimately we’re value investors. So that means many times it leads you to being contrarian,” he said. Brookfield has also snapped up Forest City Realty Trust and taken a 99-year-lease on 666 Fifth Avenue from owner Kushner Companies. [TRD]
