Yes, there can be both stabilized and non-stablized apartments in the same building. You would contact the DHCR for the rental history of the particular apartment you are looking for.
What the broker told you doesn't make much sense, becuase if the apartment was "for the landlord's family", then he would not be showing it to you to rent.
In any case, if you are like everything with the apartment and agree with the rent, then probably OK to sign a lease. But don't sign a lease expecting to change the terms later on - it seldom works that way. And if things don't seem to "add up" prior to lease signing, then be very wary - signing a lease won't make things get better ! Go with your gut instincts and remember, there are always other apartments available.
