When did that happen? Now that Labor Day has arrived, it’s time to enjoy the last few weeks of summer because we all know what’s next: sweater weather and pumpkin spice everything (see below)!

This month we’ve curated links with tips on buying a duplex in NYC, how to organize kitchen cabinets, and 6 things to do in NYC this Labor Day.

There’s also a link to support me in STEPTEMBER 2019, an annual initiative to raise funds for Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF).

Do you know someone thinking of buying, selling or renting in Manhattan or Brooklyn? Please forward this newsletter along. We’re here to help!

With gratitude,

"William Bolls is THE broker you want when buying and selling in Manhattan. He is a wealth of knowledge and really takes the time to make sure you understand the process and are getting exactly what you want.

"Your counsel, persistence and attention to detail were critical to a successful outcome"

"From the original listing to the sale of my apartment, I realize the extent to which your counsel, persistence, and attention to detail were critical to a successful outcome. You are obviously skilled in financial negotiations, for which I am grateful."

"“I can't imagine purchasing a property in New York City without William"

“I can't imagine purchasing a property in New York City without William. As an out-of-town buyer, we faced additional challenges when we decided to buy an apartment in the city. As cliched as it sounds, William truly made us feel like his only clients. It's not a simple process and we required a decent amount of hand-holding. He was there for us every step of the way, even anticipating a lot of our concerns. One of the most valuable characteristics of a good agent is responsiveness. Any time we contacted William--and it was often--he responded quickly and completely. William will definitely be our agent on future transactions.”

"The market was tough, but William stuck with it and brought it home"

“I worked with William over a lengthy period, trying to sell a lobby level doctor's office in a residential co-op building on the upper west side. The market was tough, but William stuck with it and brought it home. He showed patience and was always straightforward, honest and friendly throughout the process. Definitely 5 star.”
