With only a $60,000 budget and in just 8 weeks, Ms. Levy reinvented the tired one-bedroom apartment into a breathtaking two-bedroom showplace - selling it for a staggering $1.6 M - over a 40% profit!
New York, New York (PRWEB) June 04, 2016
New York City's renowned Billion Dollar Broker, Carol E. Levy, principal of Carol E. Levy Real Estate, was recently awarded New York’s 2015 Residential Sales Deal of the Year Award, presented by the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY). As New York’s premier independent residential broker for over two-decades, Ms. Levy is the undisputed Queen of flipping properties, and has personally sold over one billion dollars in residential real estate.
This coveted award recognized one of Ms. Levy's recent extraordinary real estate "flips". She had advised one her investor clients that she could make him an enormous profit with a relatively modest property she found - a 725 square foot, one-bedroom apartment in New York City's desirable Upper West Side. Having earned her client millions of dollars over the years by trusting her eagle-eye for finding investment properties, the Billion Dollar Broker skillfully negotiated his purchase for $865,000, and was then handed the key with full rein to perform her famous makeover magic.
Despite only a $60,000 budget and in just 8 weeks, Ms. Levy reinvented the tired one-bedroom apartment into a breathtaking two-bedroom showplace, including designing a spectacular state-of-the-art kitchen, gorgeous marble bathroom, new hardwood floors, moldings and designer lighting.

Known as The Makeover Maven, a name she has trademarked, she then tapped into her huge client base and without any advertising, immediately sold the property for a staggering $1,600,000 – almost doubling the value -- much to her client's delight. This record-breaking flip earned the highest price per square foot ever achieved in the building -- earning her the coveted REBNY award.
“I always strive for perfection in everything I do, including real estate,” shares Ms. Levy, “therefore, I approach every property with a critical eye as an artist and designer, not just a broker, as though it is my home. I love conceiving and transforming each property to be the best it can be, drastically improving the aesthetic value, functionality, and selling price. Even my minor makeovers result in major profit increases. My goal is always going above and beyond to set the highest standards and exceed every client’s expectations.”
