Professional real estate team from NYC “Pokemon Go is the next sales point”.

What if I told you your residence is worth thousands because of the Pokemon Go phenomenon? Ok, let me put this more simply. If you´ve heard of the Pokemon Go fever you know people actually go crazy searching for its  creatures “in the real world” and would do anything, believe me ANYTHING to catch as many Pokemon as possible.  Even if that meant they have to buy a new house rich in Pokemon in the area.

As crazy as it seems, game lovers are starting to search for residences to buy or rent where they can find Pokemon. to make “their dream come true”.

Pokemon Go is a game that in only a week has revolutionized the technology area achieving records in downloads and generating millions of dollars a day!


A professional brokerage team in NYC is considering using the Nintendo App functions as an interesting new sales point.  They think some apartments searching apps like FirstService.com may include Pokemon Go related data around the properties being able, this way, to increase their sales.


Craiglisters, for example, had started to list residences according to the proximity of Pokemon gyms and Pokestops as a way of attracting potential roommates.


Advertisings such as “There is a gym, two Pokestops and the last owner found a Mewtwo here” or “Pokemon and Poke Stop right in the room, you can catch´ em all while laying on the bed” can be find more often in different publications.


Also, a property management NYC company plays with the fact that some Pokemon are rare and very hard to find, so they list houses and apartments located in areas where people can actually find this rare creatures. Good strategy right?

The truth is people are fascinated with this game and even if you do agree or not. The fever that this game has unleashed is real. So my dear real estate friends and owners of residences for sale, maybe this is the right moment to take advantage of this massive craziness and start publishing your homes (with Pokemons nearby) at really VERY convenient prices for you and I have no doubt they will take it out of your hands!


So is the world my friends!


Follow me at my next blog and feel free to make any comments or suggestions and I´ll be glad to answer you back!

Have a wonderful day!




Manhattan luxury studio apartments are the new black for artists.

Manhattan luxury studio apartments


When we think about artists we think about creative people. We imagine them with a bohemian style, carefree and brilliant. At least that´s how I see them.  To me artists are undoubtedly necessary in this world.

Now, we also ask the question of why they choose luxury studios to live, instead of houses or huge apartments in Manhattan.

There are several tips that give us the guidelines to think why a certain style of home is perfect for them.


A studio apartment is different from anything we can imagine, it´s inspirational and cozy and that one space can have it all.


Most artists need a place where they can find themselves, a place where they can feel of there “own” and that leads them to inspiration.

Windows with its landscapes can be truly motivating and besides, unlike other apartments there are easy to clean.


Not only in Manhattan artists prefer studios, in Berlin for example, there are different internet sites specialized in finding studios for artists and you´ll be surprised to see how beautiful and practical they are.

Ateliers specially designed for them where they can carry out their most unpredictable imaginations.


Manhattan is the maelstrom. Among the activity and craziness it´s not always easy to find an apartment in midtown NYC where you can live, work and get inspired, but… those who seeks, find!  There are truly wonderful ateliers, lofts and studios for those who wish to live comfortable without losing its luxury. You can find a NYC apartment with pool and other amenities or a studio in a building that also has it all. Who said a studio can´t be luxurious? It is not only the coolest place on earth to live but you can make the most of it if you know how to make use of its space.


The best is to find no fee luxury apartments in NYC in order to save our money and there are for sure many studios available at a reasonable price.

This is a perfect place to live at, excellently located just a few steps away from Times Square and offering the best services and amenities.  Amenities such as an indoor swimming pool, children´s playroom, shuttle bus and private parking, among others. So if you are an artist willing to move to this area this is for sure your best studio to live at.


Use your studio and turn it into a creative space, a place of your own, where your best creative ideas can arouse.


Paint it the way you like it best, use cheerful colors and bring life to it. Make it your own style, feel comfortable and try to keep it neat and tidy…well not sure if that´s possible!


Just ask yourself how would you like the place you are living to look like?

Studios are awesome and not also artists but ordinary people prefer them every day, they´ve got that something that other apartments just don´t have so take advantage of it and enjoy it to the fullest!
