    Brown Harris Stevens’ Twitter handle reads, simply, “@Established1873.” The brokerage trades upon its distinguished lineage and generally manages to keep its white-gloved hands out of industry drama. But when real estate startup Urban Compass poached elite broker Kyle Blackmon last week, BHS president Hall Willkie decided it was time for those gloves to come off.

    “Kyle has made the decision that the equity proposition offered to him trumps a singular focus on brokerage,” Willkie said in a statement to The Real Deal. He questioned the wisdom of that decision in an internal BHS memo that stated: “The value of Kyle’s or anyone’s equity will be dependent on the success of Urban Compass’ founders implementing their vision of selling their company for substantially more than many industry experts believe is possible.”

    Willkie’s statement echoed what many in the industry have whispered – or shouted under the cloak of anonymity – for months. Urban Compass, these sources say, is merely an idea – albeit a well-choreographed, Ivy League and McKinsey-branded one. But even with a $360 million valuation, they ask, is it really the future?

    The private club inside River House will pay only $45 million to hold onto its five-story premises, a far cry from the $130 million that the property was asking when it was listed as a private home. The listing was pulled once the nonprofit club and the building’s co-op board signed a letter of intent regarding the sale, as The Real Deal reported. [more]

    The Residence at River House, which at $130 million is New York City’s priciest home listing, is being taken off the market, The Real Deal has learned. The move comes after the nonprofit River Club of New York, which operates a private club from a five-story, 62,000-square-foot space in the 435 East 52nd Street building, reached an agreement with the building’s co-op board to purchase the space.

    Tyler Ellis, daughter of menswear designer Perry Ellis, is looking to cash in on her 15 Central Park West home, asking three times what she paid for the pad in 2008.

    Ellis, the latest to join the high-rolling flippers in the Zeckendorf development, picked up her 33rd-floor unit the year Lehman Brothers imploded for just under $11 million. Now, she is planning to ask $31 million, according to listing broker Kyle Blackmon of Brown Harris Stevens. [more]

    River House, one of Manhattan’s most storied co-op buildings, is looking to turn its private club into a 62,000-square-foot home that will ask a whopping $130 million. That would make the five-story structure, perched overlooking the East River, New York City’s largest and priciest home. The club has a private entrance on East 52nd Street, and is roughly the size of 10 typical Manhattan townhouses combined. [more]

    Marked financial success in real estate was once the purview of older, established agents who had labored for years to carve out a particular territory. But no more. As the Wall Street Journal reported, ambitious young people are an increasing bulk of the most successful agents in the profession, as fields such as finance and law have become less attractive in tough economic times.

    Yuval Greenblatt, an executive vice president at Prudential Douglas Elliman, told the Journal one quarter of his team is now composed of agents under the age of 30. [more]

  • Steve Wynn, 50 Central Park South and the penthouse unit

    Steve Wynn’s long search for a luxury Manhattan apartment has finally come to a $70 million conclusion. The New York Post reported that the casino mogul is purchasing the penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton being sold by Christopher Jeffries, the founding partner of the Millennium Partners development firm that renovated the 35-story building in 2002 to add condominiums.

    From the April issue: Christopher Jeffries, cofounder of real estate development firm Millennium Partners, last month listed his duplex penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton for $77.5 million. That price tag makes Jeffries’ apartment, at 50 Central Park South, the most expensive condo on the market. But even if it goes for the full asking price, it won’t be the priciest Manhattan home ever sold. That honor, of course, goes to the penthouse at 15 Central Park West, which former Citigroup chairman Sanford Weill recently sold to Russian chemical magnate Dmitry Rybolovlev for a record $88 million. The go-to broker for both deals? Kyle Blackmon, a 34-year-old Brown Harris Stevens senior vice president who’s been in residential real estate for less than a decade. [more]
