CNBC TV 4-25-19 Coverage of Elliman Reports on Greenwich and Fairfield County, CT

Diana Olick [1] at CNBC reached out to me this week to talk about the Q1-2019 Elliman Report on the Greenwich, CT [2] housing market (as well as Q1-2019 Fairfield County, CT [3]) and the impact of the federal tax law on high-end suburban markets in NYC metro.

We spoke on Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich at 8:30 am and had to keep doing segments over because of the random roars of delivery and garbage trucks. The irony was not lost on me – a busy downtown with not a lot of empty parking spaces so early in the morning – combined with a slow housing market. Anecdotal but this is what we are seeing at the macro level – a robust regional economy with soft housing conditions.

We were set up in front of a Vineyard Vines store while I was wearing a bright Ted Baker tie (Hey, I can be a social media style influencer too). The irony in this product placement “ties” this story altogether (in my own mind). I received more feedback about my tie than I did on my content. Oh well. And for the record, Diana made very clear to me that she commented on my tie first.

Here’s the segment that also includes my friend Jennifer Leahy [5] of Douglas Elliman [6], their number one agent in Connecticut who just sold the massively oversized home of 50 Cent [7].
