Meet TOWN's Xiaosong Wu December 11, 2013

NoHo, Manhattan
Meet TOWN's Xiaosong Wu, Manhattan, New York

What is your most memorable NYC moment?

My most memorable moment is sledding through Central Park and making a snowman with my sons after one of the season's biggest snowstorms.

What is your favorite Manhattan neighborhood? Why?

I love the Upper East Side. In the mornings, I see parents walking their children to school on every corner. During the day, I enjoy the shopping away from tourist traffic and the easy access to all that Central Park has to offer. In the evenings I take part in spending time with my family in a peaceful ne

ighborhood setting--something that can be a rarity in Manhattan.

Why did you choose to pursue a career as a New York real estate professional? What is your favorite part of the job?

After a long career on Wall Street, I wanted to take my sales and finance experience and apply it to a field where the product is something I can see, feel and experience, rather than just abstract financial products. I love working with people and helping them with the important decisions that are impactful to their life in the city. I enjoy the challenge of helping them navigate through problems that arise and creatively help them get to their goal.

What is your greatest motivator?

I always aim to do the best I can, and I strive to provide the best possible experience and service to my clients. There is nothing more motivating than hearing the final response from a client saying the feel I took care of them every step of the way.

What are your greatest passions?

My passion is to help people and knowing that my service made a difference in their lives and in the life of their families.

If you could invite anyone to a dinner party, whom would you invite?

I would invite Barbara Corcoran, because she is a successful business woman who is innovative, smart and genuine--all qualities I respect very much. She is a good model to follow.

If you had only one day left in NYC, how would you spend it?

I would spend it in the oasis of Central Park, making sure I touched every corner from end to end. It is my favorite place in New York.
