Elie Hirschfeld pointed out that while there are great customer bases in the foreign and broader American markets, New York business remains rooted in the local market.
“If the local buyer/renter disappears, we will not be saved by any foreign region,” said the iconic New York real estate luminary.
“First, the Metro New York City market; second, the American market, and only last, can we count on the foreign consumer.”
