Patrick Southern used his real estate savvy and set a record market price per square foot with the recent sale of a waterfront penthouse condominium at Crystal Point, located at 2 Second Street, Jersey City. This 1,385 square foot, 41st floor, 2-bedroom, 2.5 bath penthouse, situated only 25 feet off the Hudson River, boasts unparalleled skyline views from the GWB to lower Manhattan. The premier building offers unsurpassed finishes and appliances inside each SMART-home-equipped condominium, while showcasing luxury amenities that appeal to New York City’s most discerning Buyer. This transaction further strengthens the connection between the NYC and Hudson County real estate markets, causing NYC Buyers to notice all the Gold Coast has to offer.
Southern learned of the owner’s interest to sell and set up a face to face meeting with the owner to discuss listing this distinctive property. On a Thursday afternoon in September, Southern boarded a flight from Newark to Toronto and secured the $2.2m listing. After marketing the signature unit for just 21 days, a New York City Broker submitted the winning bid to Southern on behalf of his New York City client, which ultimately closed at a sale price of $2,015,000 or $1,455/sf, according to HCMLS records.

Downtown Jersey City homeowners nervously welcomed the New Year cogniz
"We began our home search with Shaye Lastra in Spring 2013. After speaking with several realtors, Shaye was the person we wanted to work with because she had an exceptionally work ethic, and was very knowledgeable about the area and process.
Shaye and her team showed my husband and I several homes, and helped us put in several offers (we were out-bid). Shaye was very organized and thorough, and constantly checked in and followed up with us, which was very important as we were searching for a property in an extremely competitive market. She was very easy to reach and always available (even on nights and weekends), and was prompt with returning calls when she was not able to pick up the phone herself.
In the end, we purchased a home through a different realty company because the seller had an exclusive contract through a different broker. Shaye fully encouraged us to pursue the home, despite the fact that this would mean the loss of a sale for her and we had been working with her for months. She even put us in touch with a realtor within the other company whom she trusted.
Even though she was no longer our realtor, Shaye kept in touch with us throughout. Due to the rapport we had built, we called her several times throughout the purchasing process to ask for advice when our realtor was on vacation, and when we needed an unbiased opinion. I am sorry that we were not able to finish the process with Shaye, but we are so grateful for having begun the process with her. I highly recommend Shaye for anyone looking to purchase a home in the Jersey City/Hoboken area."
