A longtime Citi Habitats team led by Antonio del Rosario and Jack Elliot Heard decamped to Town Residential.
The J + A Equities team, which includes del Rosario, Heard and five others, is joining Town’s Greenwich Village office under sales and leasing manager Julia Miller.
To date, Town claims that the team has sold $1 billion worth of real estate, including $34 million last year.
Del Rosario is a veteran agent who started at Citi Habitats in 2003 and was sales director of the company’s West and East Village territories. He subsequently did stints at Barak Realty and A.C. Lawrence, where he was sales director. He returned in 2010 to Citi Habitats, which was founded in 1994 by Town CEO Andrew Heiberger. (Heiberger and Citi Habitats President Gary Malin were college roommates.) In 2004, Heiberger sold the firm to NRT, parent company of the Corcoran Group and itself a subsidiary of Realogy, for a reported $49.6 million.
Heard, a native of England, joined Citi Habitats in 2012. Also joining them is Jennifer Chapman, Sylvia Rebecca Lee, Kevin Hon Sing Tsun, Danny Agmon and Wagner Oliveira.
