Subpoenaed Yanks President Randy Levine has enlisted uber real estate firm Pru Douglas Elliman to help sell the highest priced seats and luxury boxes in the new Stadium.
Levine said that hiring Prudential Douglas Elliman was not an indication of a slow sales pace on high-end seats at the $1.3 billion stadium. Seven luxury suites remained to be sold, out of 59, and about 1,000 of 4,000 premium seats were available.No, of course it's not, Randy. Ummm, except that in the following paragraph or two, the president of PDE had this to say:
“Just like everything else, in different economic times, they probably wouldn’t have needed our help,” Sroka said. He added, “We believe we can add value to what they’re doing.” His firm is receiving a consulting fee from the Yankees.
