Broker blogger Property Grunt points us to a Boston Globe article about "extreme open houses." Naturally, Donald Trump is on the case:
At a Manhattan penthouse being sold by Donald Trump, a so-called ''psychic psychiatrist" performed what she called ''energy healings." The Donald also made an appearance at the invitation-only affair. The party-like atmosphere adds flair to a stale property, buzz to a pricey place, and puts a tough sell in a new light. ''It puts energy and attention on to a place," said Wendy Sarasohn, a Corcoran Group broker who favors the approach, and who organized the Trump event.Shame on everyone reading this who attended the "psychic psychiatrist" open house and did not email us about it. Our misaligned chakras forgive, but do not forget.
