This deal was 16-months in production but, when the credits rolled, broker Kathy Matson
collected an Oscar for her role.
“The seller was so happy with the smooth transaction, I was presented with a beautiful replica Academy Award,ˮ laughed Matson.
The veteran broker was retained for what was an estate sale by the son of the deceased owner of a 600 s/f alcove studio at the Plaza 400 co-op at 400 East 56th Street (pictured top).
The 627-unit Sutton Place property was built in 1968 and apartment 7A was in original condition.
Matson priced it a $435,000. She said, “It’s a full service co-op with wonderful amenities. The unit’s 20 ft. of windows offer a peek at the Chrysler Building, there lots of sunshine, beautiful hardwood floors and the absolute best closet space in town. It’s an opportunity to create a home.ˮ
Amenities are the building include a bike room, gym, laundry, live-in super, package room, swimming pool and storage.
The buyer, a style co-ordinator at her family’s jewelry and couture business, was buying her first apartment.
The sale closed at $430,000 after 16 months with Matson repping both seller and buyer.
