New York City eXp Realty agent Kurt Yang just landed the biggest residential transaction in eXp Realty history by representing the buyer of one of the most prominent properties in Manhattan.
The apartment was listed for $49,900,000 in October 2021 and the deal closed in early January for $40 million, making it the highest residential deal in eXp Realty history. The previous highest residential transaction at eXp was for $33,084,702 – a farm and ranch listing in Lago Vista, Texas, handled by eXp Realty agent Summer Carter.
“We worked hard on this deal, but I wouldn’t call it work, because it was so enjoyable,” said Kurt. “This took a year to come together between the two sides and the feeling is really good because my buyer got what he was looking for – a beautiful apartment in a prime area of New York City overlooking Central Park.”
Kurt worked 10 years for Goldman Sachs in wealth management while also investing in real estate. He turned to real estate full time in 2016, owning his own boutique brokerage with an office on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. When the pandemic hit, the building closed and his business got hit hard. Wondering what to do next, a New York City eXp Realty agent made a timely connection and explained eXp’s cloud-based brokerage model. In March 2022, Kurt joined eXp.
