Brownstoner reports on the reason real estate broker Kevin Carberry might be smiling today, he just sold 88 Remsen for a record breaking price:
Brownstoner: Brooklyn Heights Mansion…: Talk about a trophy property. 88 Remsen Street, in Brooklyn Heights, sold for $10,800,000, nosing out 140 Columbia Heights—which went for $10.75M in ’06—as the most expensive house sale ever reported in Brooklyn Heights, and one of the priciest residential properties ever to change hands in the borough. (There have been other Heights sales in this megabucks ballpark: 82 Remsen, for example, sold for $10.5 million in 2006.) The mansion at 88 Remsen went into contract early this year.
