DONE DEAL: Hard work pays off for City Connections agent

Ten years of work is paying off for City Connections agent Bobby Rehani.
He just closed on a $1.2 million two bedroom at 630 First Avenue after an eight-week flurry of offers.
The 950 s/f apartment #4E has been completely renovated and has superb views of the East River and Midtown, including the Empire State Building.


Rehani told us, “I’ve spent nearly a decade carefully building a targeted marketing campaign in Murray Hill/Midtown, and focusing on buyers looking to move or invest in highly desirable buildings in the area.
“ Along with that, we walk buyers through contractor designs and architectural renderings for various projects they may want to undertake once they purchase the home.
“Because of this two-fold approach, our last five sales in the building sold at or within one percent of asking price to cash buyers after multiple bids.ˮ
Douglas Elliman brought in his latest buyer.
