Last summer, Steve and Ellen Resnick followed their daughter and son-in-law from the Harlem condominium where both families lived to a new life in New Jersey. That was the plan, anyway.

The kids were moving to a house in Glen Rock, N.J., so the couple aimed to upgrade to a three-bedroom in Horizon House, a luxury co-op in nearby Fort Lee. To sell their Harlem apartment, the Resnicks hired Josh Lieberman, a broker at Douglas Elliman who had recently handled their daughter’s condo. He listed theirs for $1.35 million and, after a few false starts, sold the unit in early March for the original listing price.

As the coronavirus began its assault on the East Coast, the Resnicks forged ahead. With an expected closing date on both places in late April and a move by mid-May, they began packing up. That’s as far as they got.
