You can travel a thousand miles to another big city, and feel more at home there than someone from a rural part of that country, coming to the city for the first time. When you get beyond the language, big cities are the same in many ways. There is a certain ebb and flow. For an investor to buy real estate in Manhattan, the transition from Hong Kong or Singapore for their families can actually be more fluid and familiar than for a family moving to the Big Apple from upstate New York. What’s selling in upstate New York? For less than a million dollars you can own a nine-bedroom 9,040 mansion with six full and four half baths. It’s on 43 acres of land overlooking Cayuga Lake.

Yesterday, I presented a Feng Shui workshop for the interior design firm, Rees Roberts + Partners LLC in New York City. This was a lovely bunch and I'm so happy we had the opportunity to meet! Besides covering the heart of the presentation (Feng Shui and Interior Design), we also got into some pretty interesting topics; karma, intentions, space clearing techniques, techniques in coaching and mindful listening, and the reviewing of certain situations the designers are currently addressing through the lens of Feng Shui. What's also pretty cool about the workshop, is the team gifted themselves this event as an early Christmas present!

California is often thought of as the star-struck state, but there are a dazzling number of celebrities that live in NYC as well. As opposed to the glamour of show biz, New York City has always been seen as the place you go to “make it big” in business, Broadway, or song and dance. And for marquee names ranging from Bette Midler to Madonna, Manhattan is where they achieved their success. However, there are also stars of the silver screen that have made New York their home, drawn by the allure of status and security you can only find in Manhattan real estate.Taking a look on the map of the stars homes in Manhattan it’s possible to point out film legends such as Paul Newman, who had lived just off the park, near Bette Midler, on East 93rd. Tom Hanks has made his home on East 79th Street i...

An artist has uncovered the location of some of the most iconic album art in the last sixty years. Bob Egan, also a New York commercial realtor, has used his cross-city knowhow to find the exact addresses of the cover shoots for bands such as Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan and The Who.The project is an interesting reminder that the more Manhattan changes, the more it stays the same. The city is, and always will be, synonymous with cosmopolitan style and culture. Property will always be in demand, the allure of will never diminish, and by some wealthy individuals, luxury real estate will continue to be defined by the view of Central Park and the cache of owning a throphy apartment at 15 CPW. The fashion district may move across town and Madison Avenue has seen its Mad Men shuffle, but with...

According to Thrillist.com, the number one holiday celebrated in America is, Thanksgiving. With that said, I have to admit, the origins of this holiday for me seem a bit unsettling having knowledge about the history of conflict between Native Americans and Europeans. Being aware of this, I have chosen to approach this National holiday by giving thanks and sharing a day of appreciation with family whom I may not always be able to see. Segwaying from this brief introduction, below are 7 Unique Feng Shui Thanksgiving Tips To Consider:  1. Surrender to the Chaos of the Holidays The modern-day translation for the word holiday means to rest and relax. Yet, the irony of this is, before getting to that state of mind, there is a bit of chaos that unfolds. It seems the collective consciousness of...

Number of deals declined for the fourth straight quarter  Sellers who can’t part with their sky-high expectations keep slowing down apartment sales in Manhattan. The number of residential sales in the third quarter dipped 11.3 percent over the same period last year, according to Douglas Elliman's latest market report. That’s the fourth consecutive quarter of declines. “There’s movement, but I do think it’s going to take time,” said Steven James, president and CEO of Douglas Elliman’s New York City brokerage. “It’s predicated on sellers getting the message that they need to price realistically.” As sales decline, prices keep falling too. The median sales price slid 4.5 percent to $1.1 million, the report said. But negotiability hasn’t changed significantly since last year. The disconnect...
