Episode Description

What is the MLS? Whether you are looking to sell or buy a home, you will no doubt encounter the multiple listing service, or MLS. So just what is the MLS? The mission of MLS is simple: protect consumers, agents and brokers by ensuring that everyone who is involved in a real estate transaction has the most accurate, real information about the listing. This is, in many ways, the very lifeblood of the real estate business. But not in NYC. With years of industry infighting, residential firms in NYC were never able to unite to create a consumer database and now that’s coming back to bite them. With Street Easy and others, are we in trouble? We will talk to an expert today about just that. Also at this Hour: The New York City real estate market has faced the biggest drop since 2015 this year, and brokers are feeling the pressure. The 2019 market decrease in NYC is forcing all brokers to ramp up their creativity. How do you do that?

Vince Rocco

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.
