Get a free copy!! – How to buy a condo in NYC

I am now at the point where I am asking all of my friends and family for some assistance (no I have not lost my wallet in another country).

I am looking to assemble a group of people who are willing to get a free copy of my book, read it and post an honest review on Amazon prior to the official launch of the book. The reason why that is so important is that the more reviews I get on Amazon, the more visible my book will be once the launch takes place in approximately 30 days. Of course feel free to spread the word to other people.

To be part of my street team, go to http://gocondo.nyc/ and sign in on my email list. Once it is finished (finally!), everyone will get a free copy of the enhanced version of the book accompanied with the a check list which will be integrated with the book. Each Ambassador will also be entitled to take part in a group Q&A session monitored by me.

Real Life Monopoly

Monopoly

Growing up, my brother, cousins, nephew and I would play Monopoly all  night. We would stay up until the wee hours of the morning playing, building our pretend empires, arguing over who was cheating (Dan . . . ).

This past week, I played Monopoly for real. A year in the making, we closed on the sale of a $21,000,000 hotel. One of the more intense projects I’ve been involved with. In the days (really months) leading up to it there were countless things that had to be accounted for, prepared and crossed off huge checklists which seemingly got longer as we got closer to the day we were working towards. Even though the deal was done and we were close to the end there were last-minute side deals that had to be thought out, negotiated and documented as parties jockeyed for position. I found myself up late the night before sitting in my dining room answering emails, proofreading documents and much like the Monopoly marathons I had as a kid, making sure no one was cheating.  The morning of the closing was bright, sunny and not as hot as it could have been for an August day on Wall Street. Surely a good sign as we arrived from that far off land called Brooklyn.We came armed with accordion files, computers and cell phone chargers, The room was filled with paper. Lots of paper. Lawyers on phone arguing with other lawyers. Others leaning over laptop spreadsheets mulling over numbers; Title closers running back and forth from a huge copy machine down the hall from this glass cubicle which seemed to hold a hundred people. Everyone in my office worked incredibly hard. It started at 10:00 in the morning and broke up at 5:30 p.m. Business finally concluded 1:00 the next day.

This (The Closing by Jimmy Dyer) is what it looked like:

close

There is no rest for the weary as we are on to multiple replacement deals spanning from Manhattan to the Hamptons.

As to complexity and magnitude there was a  big sense of accomplishment, satisfaction and relief that we got it done.  Still not as fun as Monopoly as a kid . . . .
