5 Real Estate Tips from Manhattan’s Elite Broker Ido Berniker

2020 will be the year when coronavirus came along unwelcomed and unannounced, and affected every aspect of modern life – businesses, education, travel, economy, and more. Yet some, like Ido Berniker, are trying to make the most of this time.

Berniker has been charging through the world of real estate since 2007. He was considered the most expensive sale in London’s history – the purchase of 1 Hyde Park Penthouse in London. He was also involved in a massive commercial closing of 1501 Collins Avenue in Miami.
