Robert DeNiro Selling Village Townhouse
But don't call it nepotism; Raphael DeNiro has become New York's Golden Boy of the Real Estate Recession. He is described by developers as the "go-to" broker for hard times and hard sales, and runs a five-person team (which includes his wife and some DeNiro cousins) in the Prudential Douglas Elliman empire. And as he aptly puts it, "No one is buying a $10 million apartment because my dad is Robert DeNiro."
We suspect that the Academy Award-winning actor picked the best man for the job, although in this case, the historic building that sits on tree-lined St. Luke's Place ("New York City's most beautiful townhouse block," according to the listing) may not be such an uphill sales battle. It's a stunner in a choice location.
The 22-foot-wide Italianate townhouse has five bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and 12-foot ceilings. And for us, a "Robert DeNiro slept here" plaque would be the deal-cincher.
