1st Prize Winner: Real Estate Board of New York - Deal of the Year Award 2008
When a broker’s achievements exceed his seller’s expectations, the word spreads quickly — Dan Danielli has blazed an impressive trail through Manhattan’s luxury homes market. Having closed nearly a half-billion dollars worth of residential sales during his career, Mr. Danielli came to the Halstead Property, LLC after having been a top-producing broker at three premiere Manhattan real estate firms – most recently at William B. May Company, where he made their quarterly “Top Five Brokers” list eight times since 2000, including four times in the No. 1 spot, and received their Big Apple Award for outstanding sales achievement. Within three months of joining Halstead Property, he sold a Park Avenue townhouse, and was appointed to Halstead’s Platinum Circle and Producers Council.
During 2008 – his most successful year yet – Mr. Danielli sold two East Side townhouses, three Downtown townhouses, Greenwich Village’s “Abingdon Guest House” Hotel, and brokered numerous seven-figure deals for such premier condominiums as Olympic Tower, Apthorp, Ariel, Sheffield, Park Imperial, Promenade, Park Millennium, Century, Oxford, Mondrian, Alfred, One Lincoln Square, Two Columbus, Impala, Kingsley, and Saratoga. He is also trusted in the co-op market closing deals on Fifth Avenue, Park Avenue, Central Park West, Riverside Drive, and Carnegie Hill. His recent sales cover Manhattan’s most prestigious residences, including Hotel des Artistes, Grand Millennium, Trump Parc, Metropolitan Tower, Gotham, Park Laurel, Belaire, Copley, Trafalgar House, Trump Place, Ansonia, Morad Beekman, Alwyn Court, Excelsior, Sofia, Evans Tower, Riverside Tower, Colonnade, and Allegro.
Many celebrities, particularly from the classical music world, have sold (or purchased) properties through Mr. Danielli, including tenor Placido Domingo, concert pianists Evgeny Kissin and Alicia de Larrocha, violinists Pinchas Zukerman and Kyung-Wha Chung, cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, guitarist Sharon Isbin, and pop-star Roger Waters (Pink Floyd). Other notable clients include film actress Tuesday Weld, ABC News analyst George Stephanopoulos, painter Peter Max, Microsoft (Japan) President Kazuhiko Nishi, Barnes & Noble President Michael Berry, AQR Capital Management hedge fund king Clifford Asness, and Metropolitan Opera General Manager Peter Gelb.
Numerous articles on Mr. Danielli’s sales achievements have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, New York Post, Newsday, Daily News, The Real Deal, and New York Observer. Additionally, he appeared with Donald Trump on “Le Point” – a Canadian television program which showcased Mr. Danielli’s Central Park South properties. In 2003, when New York State’s Supreme Court of Appeals protected a co-op board’s right to evict a shareholder without judicial review, Mr. Danielli was appointed exclusive broker to sell what thus became 2003’s most famous Manhattan real-estate listing.
An accomplished pianist who performed internationally broadcasted concerts with the Boston Pops Orchestra, Dan Danielli holds degrees in marketing and music from Boston University and New York University, and a Ph.D. from Manhattan School of Music. Prior to real estate, he was a high-profile executive at CBS Records and RCA-BMG Music, where he guided the recording careers of such artists as Andre Previn, Zubin Mehta, Seiji Ozawa, Isaac Stern, Sir Colin Davis, James Galway, Yo-Yo Ma, Murray Perahia, Evgeny Kissin, Alicia de Larrocha, Jessye Norman, Marilyn Horne, Cleo Laine, The Chieftains, and such orchestras as St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Moscow Virtuosi, Philadelphia Orchestra, Boston Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, and London Symphony. He also served as music consultant for Barbra Streisand’s film “The Prince of Tides.” Mr. Danielli currently serves as Artistic Advisor for the annual International Keyboard Institute at Mannes College of Music, and is a benefactor/volunteer for various food-pantries and homeless youth shelters in Manhattan.
