NYC's brokers are the ultimate insiders - the ones who know what's available before anyone else. They also spend their days in and out of buildings, apartments and neighborhoods, so when they decide to buy or rent they often have a good idea of exactly what they want.
We spoke with 10 of New York's busiest agents to find out what sold them on their apartments, what they feel they're missing, and what their dream places looks like.
As it turns out, just like the rest of us, they want more space, better views and often, a tony Central Park West address.
senior vice president, Halstead Property
Her place A one-bedroom condo in the East 70s that's been newly renovated. "I moved in a few months ago with my soon-to-be husband."
Pros "The beautiful roof deck, our dark cherry wood floors, my incredibly large walk-in closet and all the sunlight we get."
Cons "The scaffolding on the outside of the building, which means we can't use the roof deck this summer."
Her dream place "I'd love to live in an elegant town house in the West Village, Lower Fifth Avenue or uptown off Madison."
