Craving a little more Trump in your Thursday? Perhaps you weren’t satisfied with the city’s bigwig brokerages, and wanted something that was a little more Bossy?
The Donald and William West have announced the creation of Trump-Greenthal Sales and Leasing, a residential real estate brokerage. Greenthal is “one of the oldest and largest privately owned residential management and leasing firms” in the city, and Trump is “a vulgar monstrosity.” (Just kidding.)
What does Greenthal already have under its belt? Gems like 1025 Fifth Avenue, 785 Fifth, 975 Park and 760 Park. Now those will be roped in with The Trump Tower and Palace and Parc and Place. Good deal.
The glorious press release is after the jump.
