Our Million Dollar Sales in 2022:
With the start of 2023, we wanted to shed light on our sales of 2022 and showcase how our agents are always able to work diligently to sell homes no matter what obstacles come their way. We first want to thank each and every single one of our agents for all of their hard work throughout the entire year and wish them the best of luck on another wonderful year ahead. We are so proud of each agent and their accomplishments; they fully embody what it means to be a part of the Tom Crimmins Realty Family.
In the year of 2022, we had 372 real estate sales, making us one of the Top Agencies on the Island. With that being said, we also had many deals that sold for well over a million dollars and we wanted to use this blog to showcase them all and give credit to the agents that worked so very hard to do so!
55 Nicolosi Drive: $2,585,000
Alyssa Ann Lombardi had the honor of selling our most luxurious & expensive home of the year which was no easy task, but she was clearly up for the challenge of taken on selling 55 Nicolosi Drive, a spectacular 7000 sq. ft. waterfront estate with contemporary colonial design which featured 17 rooms, twin floating staircases, fantastic entertainment plan, and a formal/informal living. The grounds are 15,300 square feet and include an in-ground pool, a subterranean guest suite, and a master bedroom suite with ocean views. This home sold for whopping $2,585,000. Alyssa's expertise were certainly put to the test, but she never wavered and stuck to everything she had learned in her many years as an agent, as well as trusted her instincts!
72-74 Brighton Avenue and 375-377 Sharon Avenue: $1,000,000 each & 225 E 4th Street: $1,376,250
Marion Alameda is responsible for the next array of transactions that well exceeded $1 Million Dollars and this one is certainly a unique one because they weren't in fact just 'one' deal, but rather a bundle of deals which were certainly the result of her vast knowledge and willingness to do what it takes to help her clients! Marion sold 31 Florida Avenue, 72-74 Brighton Avenue and 375-377 Sharon Avenue. Each of these three multi-family homes sold for $1,000,000 each which comes to the final amount of a whopping $3,000,000 total in gross sales. Furthermore, concluding the year of 2022, Marion had also sold a home in Brooklyn! Yes...you read that correctly. BROOKLYN! We are not simply just a Staten Island brokerage and work with many sellers and buyers in our neighboring borough. The home Marion sold could be found at 225 E 4th Street and went for a price of $1,376,250.

51 Livingston Avenue: $1,280,000
Sheree Goode sold 51 Livingston Avenue, a custom designed two family Colonial home, located in the heart of Manor Heights. It showcases old world character with all of the high-end custom amenities.

All of which, along with the expertise of Sheree allowed this home to sell for $1,280,000. Often in the real estate world people will say 'Homes sell themselves,' and although that is partly true, it is not entirely true. Why? Because homes may very well sell with any ordinary agent, however, they will not always sell for top market price and that is why you need an Agent like Sheree Goode. She will maximize the two things you want most as a client: the amount of money you receive for the home and the time in which it will sell!
8 Ardsley Street: $999,999
Vincent Monardo and Paula Beningo are a dynamic team and they are the reason for our next sale on 8 Ardsley Street, a true Richmondtown Oasis located on a dead end street with the left side of property bordered by protected land. This beautiful home boasts a large open floor plan on the first floor with sliders from the dining room to a large deck and a majestic staircase to second floor. This home sold for 1 dollar shy of a million dollars at $999,999...but we aren't going to let 1 dollar keep us from putting it in our yearly recap because we had two agents whose value far exceed that of a dollar. To have a pair of agents on a listing is one thing, and will, without a doubt, be beneficial, but to have two agents, with as much experience and chemistry as Vincent and Paula, is a totally different level of real estate prestige and is completely invaluable!
307 Manhattan Street: $1,375,000 & 109 Hecker Street: $1,070,000

This 3 bedroom colonial in an ideal location, perched high above Ocean Terrace in a private setting may have sold for 1 dollar shy of a million dollars at $999,999, but we believe that the amount of sweat equity Rosanne had put into this deal to make it happen makes up for that dollar...OH! and did we mention...SHE BROUGHT THE BUYER!
