TOWN Residential, New York’s preeminent luxury real estate services firm, is leading the industry while continuing a commitment of transparency by sharing what many consider highly proprietary data. Through the end of the second quarter, the firm successfully transacted more than $1.225 billion in total sales and leasing volume. This total is comprised of 593 sales transaction sides and 1,735 leasing transaction sides, representing a 9.6% increase in the total number of closed transactions over the same period last year.
