Dueling Brokers List $23M Park Ave Candela Co-op

New, 19 comments

This 5BR, 5.5BA Rosario Candela-designed co-op hit the market for $23,000,000 on Friday, and then again on Saturday. That's because it's a co-exclusive, which means that it's listed by two brokers from different agencies—in this case, Sotheby's International Realty and Brown Harris Stevens. Sometimes, in these types of situations, the brokers work together on the listing, but in this case it appears that each of them has just gone ahead and made her/his own, which begs the question: Who listed it better?

Sotheby's Stevens
Overview: "Chic and highly sophisticated..." "Located in one of Park Avenue's finest prewar cooperatives..."
Kitchen: "The enormous eat-in cook's kitchen custom designed by Carlos Aparicio has the finest new appliances and is sure to delight." "The sprawling, sundrenched, 23-foot Chef's kitchen features soapstone countertops, custom-cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances from Wolf and Sub-Zero, wine storage and a large breakfast room."
Windows: "...wonderful southern and Park Avenue outlooks from the new custom windows." "Resplendent with glorious light streaming in from 25 windows the sprawling home spans 3 exposures."
Size: "All rooms are of the grandest proportion, including a 32 foot living room and 29 foot gallery." "Designed by renowned architect Rosario Candela, the residence offers grand scale rooms with a graceful layout accentuated by magnificent original architectural elements."
Rooms: 12 14

We're going to have to go with Brown Harris Steven's on this one—their listing even has two additional rooms! Props to Sotheby's for keeping it concise, though.
