A 'Wolf of Wall Street' Offers Town House for $43.5 Million
In real estate, Wilgiz is a lone wolf: He's selling his two-story mini-mansion without a broker, hawking the property through a Zillow listing and on his Facebook page. But apparently selling a high-end property himself isn't as hassle-free as Wilzig may have thought. After thanking folks for their "massive reaction" to his town house offering, Wilzig posted this on his Facebook page:
"PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME THROUGH FB CHAT/DM. I hate it as much as I love every OTHER element of Facebook. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use that. EXCLUSIVELY. Thanks. No phone texts either please, unless you're 10 minutes late for a showing/viewing."
Welcome to the life of every real estate agent, who suffers through showings with late or no-show buyers.
Not that Wilzig has anything against brokers -- he's willing to pay some commissions; he just doesn't want to sign "an exclusive with any one broker or firm. (especially since a dozen of my good friends are all NYC brokers)," he says, again on his Facebook page.
Now, on to the property on 3 Hubert Street in Manhattan. It features:
- 7,500 square feet on two levels -– one above grade and one below grade.
- six bedrooms; 5.5 baths.
- whole-house automation.
- 2,500 square-foot private roof deck.
- 1,000 square-foot backyard patio with dining for 10.
- eight-person hot-tub-spa.
- tanning bed.
