400 CPW apt 10C This 2bd/2ba condo in Park West Village was put on the market when 4 other similar apartments were also for sale. This is rare in this 1600 plus apartment 4 building complex between 97th and 100 street and CPW and Columbus avenue. Through creative marketing beyond the usual, a buyer was found at close to asking price. 

126 Riverside drive- This 2bd/1.5 bath co-op located on the first floor of a boutique building on Manhattan's upper west side was a foreclosure and Brian managed the construction process together with his mother Lila Maron.

114 West 133 street  This one time SRO, is a 6 family which has 5-1 bedroom apartments and 1 studio plus a church in the basement level. It was in the market for a little less than 1 month and Brian found a CASH purchaser who bought it for 1,850,000 based on a 1.9 asking price. Brian coordinated showings to lessen the inconvenience to the tenants and maximize the seller's market value. 

240 East 76 street apt 2N This one bedroom condo located in the Eastmore, a doorman building near 2nd avenue was about 760 sqft and in good condition. Brian and Lila Maron marketed this property together and coordinated with a tenant and managed to overcome the negative view of the schoolyard and get it sold to one of two interested parties who made bids at the same time. Sold for $610,000 thanks in large part to the attorney that Brian and Lila recommended to their client who help to keep the deal together in spite of some last minute challenges by the other side. His name is Philip Bornstein and he can be reached at 718-545-0400 or
