Property Grunt

No. I am not attending the Real Deal 3rd Annual New Development Forum at Lincoln Center. I am in the process of cleaning up the mess when the plumbers came in to fix a leak in my ceiling. More on that later.

Remember my entry on the Corcoran Exodus? Well it has been confirmed by the Real Deal Via Curbed. That those brokers pulled a power play.

Ex-Corcoran agents form new group at BHS
Less than eight days after their move to Brown Harris Stevens, four former Corcoran brokers have announced the launch of their new partnership.

The newly formed partnership includes Wendy Maitland, Erin Aries, Wilbur Gonzalez and Reid Price, who have brought along 14 former Corcoran brokers with them to Brown Harris Stevens as part of their residential team. The new marketing group, not yet officially named, will take high-end, design-driven new developments from conception to completion, says Maitland, one of the four managing directors.

According to Gonzalez, the group has half a billion dollars' worth of new developments that will begin sales in the next 30 days, including 33 Vestry Street, known as V33, and One York Street in Tribeca.

I wouldn't be surprised if they have taken over one of the downtown offices for themselves. I am curious to see Pam's counter move.
