"Our client, the seller, was introduced to us by a friend. [The buyer] liked that there were two equal-sized large bedrooms, because he was buying the apartment for his daughter and a roommate to live in. Buth within two weeks of accepting his offer, we received three other very strong offers. The buyer's broker was aggressive and came in slightly above the asking price because he wanted to secure it for his client. We got the highest price for any apartment in this building."
