Newly retired Dunn & Bradstreet CEO Steve Alesio and wife Luana Alesio paid $6.6 million for their 7-room Upper West Side co-op apartment in the San Remo

John Boyd is the head of Boyd Operating Alliances, LLC
Stribling brokers Cathy Taub and Catherine Harding had the exclusive for the Boyds.
The co-op came on the market for $6.4 million in early May, and appears to have generated a bidding war since it sold for $200,000 over the original asking price.
In addition to a washer and dryer, the apartment has through-the-wall air conditioning.
Standard common shareholder amenities in the San Remo include basement storage bins for each apartment, a bike room, and a gym.

Contractor Isaac Fhima sold his 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom co-op apartment at 233 East 69th Street to physician Jan Boublik and Pfizer Director Jennifer Whiteley for $1.7 million.
Without disccounting renovation costs and broker’s fees, that’s approximately a 71% return on his investment. That’s a Not a bad return, considering that Fhima paid $995,000 for the cooperative on April 1, 2009, just 16 months ago, a much better return than either the Dow Jones Index (35.7%) or NASDAQ Composite (48%) during the same time period.
When he bought the apartment for just under $1 million, Fhima cleverly avoided paying New York’s dreaded mansion tax on buyers of co-op and condo apartments selling for $1 million or more.
Jan Boublik is a German-educated anasthesiologist who completed his residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.
The sale price was 11.5% less than the original list price of $1,895,000 when Fhima put the apartment back on the market in October 2009, only six months after he bought it.
The apartment has lots of high-end appliances kitchen has high end appliances including a SubZero refrigerator and Viking appliances.
The co-op is pet friendly.
A bonus: for $1.7 million, it appears that you get a legal washer and dryer in the unit, if the floor plan does not contradict provisions in the co-op’s proprietary lease and House Rules.

Dr. Robert Haar, a board-certified Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialty in sports medicine, just paid $3,550,000 for a ‘7 into 6′ room pre-war co-op apartment at 880 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
The surgeon paid $250,000 less than the original $3.8 million list price when the apartment was first on the market in April 2009.
Dr. Haar now has one of the best commutes that a New Yorker could ever dream about.>
Of course, a Stribling broker had the exclusive for the Weeks-Rekant co-op. Stribling VP Shel Joblin had the listing for his colleague.
This spacious apartment was essentially a 2,220 sq. ft. 1-bedroom co-op with an enourmous living room overlooking Fifth Avenue.
An ideal entertaining space for empty nesters, or single folks who entertain, the cooperative also features a huge gallery next to the entry foyer, and a 16-foot wide dining room.
The beautiful, gleaming white kitchen has a breakfast room, and the maid’s room makes for a perfect home office.
880 Fifth is not a pet-friendly co-op for dog owners. The listing emphatically stated that “[d]ogs [are] not permitted.”
For $3.55 million, Dr. Haar also gets the privilege of using a washer and dryer in his apartment.
