While I am not a real estate agent/broker my guess is they are using Microsoft Outlook and syncing that their phones. In the office, I use Outlook to manage my daily schedule whether it is meeting new clients to sign loan disclosures or having lunch with a realtor. Luckily we use Microsoft exchange and I am able to sync my Outlook calendar with my awesome myTouch 4g Android phone.

In the past year I have also discovered the full potential of Microsoft Outlook and its ability to just manage my contacts and calendar.

Having had worked for apple for 5 years, I would say the Iphone however doug is right take a look at the new android its a great device i fiddled with a friends and its pretty impressive. Mitchell is right the new camera is amazing on the iphone the video is pretty much HD. Another alternative is to keep what ever phone you have now and go for an ipad if you want the same functionality of the iphone but on a larger device. I have one and have to say i cant live with out my ipad.

hope this helps

Hi Francis. Someone said it below. Check You'll have to create a free account and they'll limit the amount of info unless you upgrade but you can check the bldg and what has sold for sure.

Keep in mind that the sold data usually goes no further back than 2004. Still, this will be a good tool to try to establish value. It's not the only criteria but a good start anyway. Try to stay within a 6 month time frame going backward.

If you require help with anything else, feel free to contact me directly.

Use a lawyer. This is not a standard sublease. Subtenants must also be responsible to abide the terms of your proprietary lease-- that requires special language in the rider. Also, you need co-op approval to sublet and a lawyer will help you with that too (some co-ops don't even allow it). Also, many co-ops require your sublease contain certain provisions for their benefit. Use a lawyer. ... more

You can try to search ACRIS (the New York City tax site -- google ACRIS) but it's going to be tough.

For one thing, you're talking about a lot of properties -- there are currently around 500 listings in Manhattan that are at or above that price on the market now.

If you have more specific criteria -- say you want to know what sold at that price point in your neighborhood, so you know how to value your home -- you can contact me and I'll run a search for you.

I don't know how to answer the Trulia-technical part of that question, but I can tell you John Varnedoe of Elliman just listed a studio in that building for $399K.

If you are looking to move across the country let me know, I work with buyers in lots of downtown areas, including the Village.

If you are simply shopping for a second home be aware that that co-op board does not allow pied-à-terres, and you should look elsewhere.
