How Two Luxury Real Estate Agents Spend Their Sundays

by Ozva Admin

Real estate agents and brothers Tal and Oren Alexander, originally from Miami, have been involved in some of the most expensive residential transactions in the country. In 2019, they sold a 24,000-square-foot penthouse in 220 Central Park South for $238 million billionaire Ken Griffin. Earlier this year, the brothers, who founded the Alexander Team at Douglas Elliman Real Estate a decade ago, used their successful track record and brand to start their own ultra-luxury real estate company, official partners.

Although they work closely together, the brothers do not usually spend Sundays together. Tal, 36, lives in Manhattan with his girlfriend, Arielle Kogut, a partner in a venture capital firm. Oren, 35, spends much of the year in Miami, where he lives with his fiancee, the model kamila hansen, and runs the Florida side of the business, much of which revolves around New York clients. When Oren is local, he stays at Tal’s house in Midtown, a something noticeable super tall tower at 432 Park Avenue, in a 4,000 square foot apartment. “There’s a lot of room,” Oren said. Tal is currently showing the building’s penthouse, for an undisclosed price, to qualified buyers. The current owner paid $90 million for the 8,000-square-foot residence, he said.

HURRY UP Such Alexander: For most people, Sunday is a day to catch up or relax. For Oren and me, there are no days off. Sunday is an important day because many customers who are buyers want to go see open houses. I start early, around 8 am, and take a class in Barry’s Training Camp or if the weather is nice, I run in Central Park. pray alexander: I also start my day with a workout, some kind of gym class, like at Barry’s, with my fiancée.

BROTHERS WHO BRUNCH RESERVE ARMY: From there I’ll take a bite. Zero Bonus It’s a members club on Bond Street. They do a great brunch and it’s a great opportunity to meet a client before you start showing properties. It could be one of our clients who is buying properties, or someone I’m meeting with to talk about something I’m putting on the market. I am quite healthy. I’ll have egg whites with a side of wheat toast, maybe a tomato and cucumber salad. AO: On weekends I enjoy brunch inside the building. That’s the beauty of staying at 432 Park. It really has all the amenities you can get in a hotel. On Sundays, the building’s private restaurant, run by Michelin-starred chef Shaun Hergatt, does an amazing brunch. I like their chicken Milanese.

RUN WALK RESERVE ARMY: I’m done with brunch around 1, then start showing. I’m running all over New York City. It could be downtown, it could be uptown. My new townhome listing is at 17 Jane. I just put that on the market for $23.5 million. It comes with two parking spaces and I like to show buyers how the garage works. It is an underground garage, with an automatic parking system. It’s very rare to have that in the West Village, almost non-existent.

AO: When I’m in town I like to take a look around and check out anything new that’s open. After brunch, I walk. I recently walked from Midtown to the World Trade Center. The city changes very quickly and I am there to see where those changes are, where the growth is. I’ll see the architecture, what’s the latest hotel to open, and new restaurant openings. We represent developers in sales of new developments, and developers come to us for advice and consultation. Many times that involves interior design, food and drink, and even architecture. They see us as trendsetters.

A HURRY AND A HANG RESERVE ARMY: From Jane Street, I run to my other listing on Greenwich Lane, which is the penthouse. We are selling it off the market, just as my client prefers. They don’t want photos of the house floating around the internet. It has some of the best views in the West Village. AO: After walking, I would probably meet some friends for a drink or coffee. Sundays, Mercer hotel lobby It’s a place where a lot of our friends are, so I’ll stop there. Some of the friends are customers. When they’re with me in Miami, they’re looking at properties. At Mercer, it’s a time for me to connect with them on a more social level. We are in a relationship business. Sometimes you want to meet clients off the pitch.

QUESTION RESERVE ARMY: After Greenwich Lane, I’ll probably run to 432 Park to show off the penthouse. So it’s make-up Sunday at Remedy place. It’s a new welfare club in the Flatiron district. I’ll do the infrared sauna. The good thing about this is that Oren and I can go together, we can sit and talk and maybe have an ice bath together. We talk not only about our day. We start planning next week. AO: The founder is a friend of ours. Tal and I catch up there. We have a great mutual respect for each other, where we can talk to each other in a way that we can’t in any other relationship. The fact that we are brothers allows us to offer constructive criticism without emotions getting between us. It is an important part of the dynamic of our association.

PARK AVENUE. LANDING RESERVE ARMY: Then we usually go home and try to watch some NFL football. We are both huge Dolphins fans. Around 7:30 or 8 we will go out to dinner. I always make it a point to try to enjoy a good meal with my girlfriend. AO: We’re probably both sitting on our laptops watching football and sending emails. I like to go through all my emails from the past week and make sure I covered everything.

PACK IT IN AO: I go to bed probably around midnight. RESERVE ARMY: Same here.
