As Manhattan’s luxury residential real estate market continues to report strong sales activity, Warburg Realty is proud to report that Bonnie Chajet negotiated deals totaling nearly $100 million in the first four months of 2012. During this period, Ms. Chajet was responsible for approximately $56 million in sales closings and over $40 million in pending transactions. As one of the firm’s shareholders, she is a fixture on its list of top performers, and has enjoyed success throughout her 35-year career as half of one of the industry’s longest running real estate partnerships with Ronnie Lane.
“Bonnie is one of a small group of brokers who have experienced this type of success; she is unique in that her charm and humility always shine through regardless of her prowess,” said Frederick W. Peters, president of Warburg Realty. “Her extraordinary sales record during the first four months of the year show there are no limitations for brokers of her confidence and professionalism. We are delighted to recognize this achievement and are so pleased to have enjoyed the sunshine of her company at the firm over the past 25 years.”
Below is a list of some of the closed deals completed during this period. (All dollar amounts listed below are approximations.)
• A $31.5 million listing at 1030 Fifth Avenue
• A $11.5 million transaction at One Central Park West
• An $8 million deal at 980 Fifth Avenue
Ms. Chajet’s success in the start of the year further supports market reports of the strength in the sales market. As referenced in Mr. Peter’s popular blog and First Quarter Market report, there have been plenty of deals so far this year, especially in the “upper echelons of the market.” Warburg expects the market to remain on track, and potentially accelerate a bit, but without an anticipated big jump.
