  1. Very pleased to see Jonathan will be leading a discussion of this topic at #REBCNY and hope that perspectives are offered from luxury real estate agents, particularly buyer agents, outside NYC. My sense is that the national press, Forbes and AOL in particular, focused on the upside of the market and record-breaking sales pace in Manhattan, but those articles would have benefitted from a wider range of research outside of New York.

    My sense, based on stats in Massachusetts, is that there is evidence to that some markets did experience what CNBC called the “Mansion Cliff” in July 2012.

    What will 1Q2013 bring? Hope there are a variety of responses to that question, particularly from practitioners who (1) had expired and canceled listings at the end of 2012, and (2) can compare downtown luxury condo sales to large mansions (7,500SF+) in the suburbs.

    Finally, would like to request that the session be held in the afternoon so I can travel from Boston to attend. If not, will there be slides or a way to participate from remote?
