22 Echo Lane, which tried for $2.995 million in 2013, $2.950 in 2015, and started at $2.850 in May, 2016 before dropping to $2.450 last October, finally reports a contract.

A less experienced realtor might assume that the magic trick that succeeded was that final price drop, but clearly it was the owners' decision to switch brokers for a third time and bring in Steve Archino who, no fool he, immediately installed The Chair and The Orange. No zebra, though, which undoubtedly explains why it still took from October to now to find a buyer.
