Episode Description

As the population of the city boomed during the late 1880s through 1910, architects and builders used masterful designs and construction materials and techniques to accommodate the swelling population. The result was sturdy brick and stone buildings with high ceilings, which created a New York type of architecture that was built for great form, function and endurance. The Pre-war. The Depression all but stopped this building boom, and by the time the Second World War was underway, the golden age of urban architectural construction was over. Some of the most famous buildings in the city are from this era: The Apthorp, the San Remo, and the Dakota, 740 Park for example. Today, newly constructed condos often look to their prewar forebears for design inspiration including 15 Central Park West, Robert A.M. Stern’s super luxury tower right off of Columbus Circle. But most new condo development is glass tower architecture rising tall into the sky and skyline of NYC.

I became interested in a real estate career in the mid-1990s while buying and selling Manhattan co-ops and condos for my own personal real estate projects (renovating and selling), and found it to be an exciting industry. I decided to make Real Estate a full time profession and I've never looked back.

The ROCCO Group is dedicated to delivering quality service to our buyers and sellers. I get personally involved in every detail of the deal. I am known for my straightforward approach, my integrity and flexibility while working with people. I cultivate strong relationships that last a lifetime.

I have an extensive knowledge of Manhattan and its neighborhoods. I became an expert in New Condo Development sales over the past five years selling in three separate new development projects. I've made appearances on 'Sweat Equity' on the DIY network as one of their pricing experts, and have been featured on 'House Hunters' on HGTV and I'm working on an interactive web/blog portal where I will be hosting a weekly 'over the net' Real Estate program featuring everything New York City. I have been quoted in NY Magazine, NY Post, NY Times, QUEST, The Real Deal, and Broker's Weekly.

I live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with my dog, Jett. I know Manhattan well and all of its neighborhood's so touring for a new home is always an exciting adventure with me. I make it personal. Your dream of finding the perfect home or selling your home will become a reality.
