Related Companies, a real estate firm based in New York, has had a pet-friendly policy since it opened its first building in 1986. The company distinguishes itself by offering wax and booties to dogs at all its buildings in winter, and its MiMa building on New Yorks West 42nd Street has a separate dog terrace with a pool in the shape of a bone. Seven years ago, Related established its first Dog City location, providing pet care services for clients concerned about their pets well-being when they werent home. They offer baseline services, such as nail clipping and access to special play areas and pet clean-up space, for a yearly membership fee of $250. Spa services, walks, puppy nannies, veterinary care, and socialization services are provided in packages and on an à la carte basis. Director of Operations Leya Ogihara says the company looks to tailor offerings “with bespoke attention to each individual dogs needs.” She notes that Related Companies is currently developing a program that will specifically cater to cats.
Why such a dramatic change? Experts cite many reasons. Some think sellers came to terms with the difficulty of appealing to the next buyer since nobody can predict who that will be or what design trends may be hot when its time to sell. Others suspect boredom as the culprit. Pogonitzs clients often tell her: “I dont want a white kitchen anymore. I need something more energetic and happier,” she says. Among those balking the loudest are millennials who are eager to add their own imprint, says Jill Biggs, whose eponymous team is part of a Coldwell Banker brokerage in Hoboken, N.J. In the affluent, traditional suburb of Short Hills, N.J., Coldwell Banker real estate salesperson Stephanie Mallios says the fact that many of her clients are planning on staying put for awhile makes them more willing to take a chance on a style they love. “Those with means believe they can afford to buy what theyll enjoy since theyre not moving soon,” she says. Pogonitz thinks yet another reason may be the countrys on-edge mood: “When it sometimes feels like the world is coming to an end, I think more are looking to their home as a place to escape, experience joy, and wrap themselves in a big hug.”
