A Global Approach to Selling
Eastern Consolidated is regularly called upon by international buyers to deliver New York City deals. We know the market, the neighborhoods, and the properties. We know where the deals exist. What’s more, we speak the language. Our brokers are a direct reflection of New York City itself and are fluent in eleven languages including Farsi, Hebrew, French, Spanish, Italian, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Taiwanese, Cantonese, and Shanghainese. With an ear to the ground, vast experience under our belts and a proven history of closing signature deals, Eastern delivers every time.
- The creation of a 30-story Marriott boutique hotel/condominium out of two small Manhattan midblock buildings and scattered air rights resulted from the ability of Eastern Consolidated’s Senior Director Ety Lee’s ability to communicate in three Chinese dialects with an absentee owner. Ms. Lee represented the seller, and also procured the purchaser. She is Senior Director, Asian Note Sales and Advisory.
- Eastern Consolidated facilitated the sale of one of the largest property collections in Manhattan, trading for $225 million, to British-based investors, Dawnay Day.
