'Selling New York' Real Estate Ain't Easy

Tomorrow's episode of HGTV's "Selling New York" shows all of us real estate voyeurs how much more there is to selling real estate (the therapy, the intensive research) than just the sale.

We spoke to CORE Group broker Lisa Graham who in the episode helps a client choose between buying a new home in the West Village or building his own atop his business, with his available "air rights."

We won't divulge more about the show airing Thursday, April 15 at 9 p.m. (8 p.m. Central), but we got the scoop from Graham about some of the stressful drama that brokers have to deal with -- often without pay.
