realtor in New York City?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a real estate agent in New York City (Manhattan), whether that agent specializes in Midcentury Modern or not (not a whole lot of MCM here). I'm looking to buy my first home, and I don't know where to start.

Just to give a bit of personal history, you know that really really divey motel on Sunset called The Sunset Pacific Motel (also known as "Bates Motel", just a block or so away from the Pioneer Chicken?...

resources on SoCal modern architechture?

Hello, I've started taking up an interest in the modern post-war residental architecture in the Southern California (LA) area.
