From the November issue: This past spring, Stribling & Associates broker Charlotte Van Doren landed an exclusive on a four-bedroom condo on East 57th Street and listed it for just shy of $5 million. Within 48 hours, buyers were making offers, and six days after going live, the property went into contract for $200,000 over the ask. But now a very different scenario is playing out in the same building — with the same broker, just one flight up.
When a condominium owner at Extell Development’s One57 approaches broker Robert Dankner about selling, these days he tells them all the same thing. “I talk myself out of a potential commission, but it’s good advice… there’s no way for a graceful exit right now,” the Prime Manhattan Realty president said. He advises clients that, unless they want sell at a loss, they should stick to renting their One57 pads out.
Joe Sitt’s Thor Equities locked down $85 million to refinance its headquarters at 25 West 39th Street, according to records filed with the city. AIG Investments provided the financing on the 18-story office building. The financing consolidates a previous $79 million loan with a new $6 million mortgage, the documents show. Thor and its affiliates, Thor Retail Advisors and Thor Equities Residential, occupy roughly 45,000 square feet across three floors of the building.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
