[Video] Fox Business Risk & Reward with Deirdre Bolton 10-6-14

October 6, 2014 | 4:24 pm | TV, Videos |

I spoke with Deirdre Bolton on “Risk & Reward” today to speak about last weekend’s excellent New York Times real estate piece by Julie Satow called “Dialing it Down.” Deirdre focused on the metric developed during my preparation of last week’s Elliman Report of Manhattan sales in 3Q2014 showing that luxury inventory has doubled over the past year.

[Video] Talking Housing on CNBC TV’s Street Signs 9-25-13

September 25, 2013 | 7:29 pm | | TV, Videos |

I’m not quite ready to use the word “haunted” in my housing language, but I had a nice chat with Brian Sullivan and Mandy Drury of CNBC TV’s ‘Street Signs’ – 30 Rock is always quick walk from my office to do the remote. Although my firm’s name was announced backwards on air (It’s really “Miller Samuel” I swear), I think my logic was forward (sorry).

Fun. Plus Mandy gives The Real Deal Magazine a shout out.

[Video] Talking Housing on Bloomberg TV’s Surveillance 9-24-13

September 24, 2013 | 12:10 pm | | TV, Videos |

Always fun (and refreshing) to talk housing with Tom Keene, Sara Eisen and Scarlet Fu on Bloomberg TV’s Surveillance. I always watch or listen to the show on their apps as part of my morning routine. Got to meet and hear great insights from Jim O’Neill, Bloomberg View columnist and former chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management as well.

Did I tell you I am still the mayor of the Bloomberg Cafeteria on Foursquare?

[Video] Talking Housing, Case Shiller, on Bloomberg TV’s Surveillance 8-28-13

August 28, 2013 | 11:13 am | | TV, Videos |

I had a nice discussion with Tom Keene, Sara Eisen and Alix Steel, along with guest host Byron Wien, vice chairman of Blackstone Group LP’s advisory services on the state of US housing and the latest Case Shiller numbers.

More importantly, I’m still the mayor of Bloomberg TV’s Green Room on Foursquare.

[Video] Manhattan’s tight non-luxury housing market on Bloomberg TV’s Market Makers 8-7-13

August 8, 2013 | 2:02 pm | | Columns |

Yesterday, Oshrat Carmiel’s real estate piece: Manhattan Homes Under $3 Million Never Harder to Buy hit the terminals and web site rising almost immediately to the most emailed and most read article of the day. The starting point for her article was based on my firm’s data – extracting the luxury market data from the overall market – to observe what’s happening to “non-luxury” real estate. I define luxury real estate as the top 10% of all sales prices in a period. This analysis looked at the remaining 90% and as it turns out – the Manhattan market is a lot tighter there.

I had a fun discussion with Erik Schatzker and Alix Steel about the “non-luxury” Manhattan market on their Bloomberg TV show “Market Makers.”

I also did an interview with Kathleen Hays and Vonnie Quinn on Bloomberg Radio’s “The Hays Advantage” and also used the data I compiled in my weekly column on Curbed covering the same topic.

As of today, the Bloomberg article is still the most read on Bloomberg worldwide. Apparently there is interest in the housing market beyond the super wealthy’s real estate exploits.

It was a busy day.

July 2, 2013 | 6:52 pm | | TV, Videos |

I joined Erik Schatzker and Scarlet Fu to talk about our new market research piece released today covering the 2Q13 Manhattan sales market that we prepare for Douglas Elliman.

The Bloomberg TV long interview format is absolutely fantastic.

On Friday I taped an interview with Christine Romans, host of CNN’s Your Money on the housing recovery and why rising mortgage rates aren’t necessarily a bad thing. She’s a very engaging interviewer – plus it’s always fun to visit the studio.

This clip captures a large part of the interview – there were three more Q&A volleys on the televised broadcast omitted in this clip – they’ll be airing them in other segments.

Andrew Siff, a reporter for WNBC Channel 4 in New York did a great job articulating the tight inventory phenomenon we are seeing in both the region and nationally.

[In The Media] Bloomberg’s “Street Smart” 1-7-13

January 8, 2013 | 2:37 pm | | TV, Videos |

Had a quick but fun visit with Trish Regan and Adam Johnson on Bloomberg TV’s “Street Smart.” We covered some of the results of the 4th quarter market report on Manhattan sales I have been preparing for Douglas Elliman for years.

Just before I came on to the set there was a breaking news flash that a tanker crashed into San Francisco’s Bay Bridge – quickly thought my segment would be cut but alas it wasn’t. I have a long legacy for timing like that, just not this time.

[In The Media] Newsweek/BeastTV – “The Number” with Dan Gross 12-27-12

December 30, 2012 | 11:34 am | Public |

I joined Dan Gross for my monthly visit on his “The Number” segment talking about the general improvement in the US housing market, FHA’s possible pending implosion and what’s in store for the market in 2013.

Always fun.

[In The Media] Bloomberg’s “Money Makers” 12-28-12

December 29, 2012 | 11:50 am | | Public |

Had a nice chat with Erik Schatzker and Sara Eisen on the top 5 closed Manhattan transactions to date (there may be a few more squeezed in). We got through 3 and then there was a breaking news event – the president was announcing the status of the “fiscal cliff” talks.

Imagine that! As if the “fiscal cliff” was somehow more important than learning where the super wealthy invested their money in real estate? Ok I’m kidding.

I’ll finish the list and include the top sales in a post later today when the howling snow storm hits CT.
