Even open heart surgery couldn’t stop Douglas Elliman agent Allison Dubuisson closing a deal.
The Gilad Azaria Team member had been working with a young couple and their growing family to sell their Perry Street one bedroom for several months when she received an offer — just as her mom was having surgery.
“Literally, while she was on the operating table with her heart on a pump outside her body,ˮ said Dubuisson, whose clients had bought unit 1R at 167 Perry Street at the height of the market for just over $1 million.
$100,000 in renovations, two kids and three dogs later, they were in desperate need of a bigger home — and a profit on their old one.
Dubuisson had done everything from staging the unit to getting the kids out to school and the dogs walked when she had showings. When a solid $1.33 million offer came in, despite her own personal drama, she worked to close the sale. “My clients had now become part of my family. They had entrusted me to help them and I take that seriously.ˮ
And the good news kept rolling. Weeks after selling the Perry Street apartment, Dubuisson is about to help the family close on a $1.375 million two-bedroom on the Upper West Side.
Meanwhile mom Paula is making a full recovery. Said Dubuisson, “This was definitely a stressful time, but my clients trusted me and my ability to get their buyer and themselves approved by the boards and simultaneously close these deals. I couldn’t let them down.ˮ
