    The ranks of licensed real estate salespeople in New York City is getting larger. And based on recent data, a lot of the new entrants in the business appear to be setting up shop in the outer boroughs.

    Since the last time The Real Deal measured the rolls of licensed brokers – in December – those ranks have grown larger and at a faster pace. As of the first week of August, the number of licensed salespeople in Gotham grew by 8.6 percent from the previous year, according to information provided by the New York Department of State. In our December report, licensing activity had picked up 7.2 percent over a one-year period. [more]

    UPDATED, 11:12 a.m., June 23: David Lipman, who spearheaded the branding campaign for One Madison Park and worked with Extell Development’s One57, is joining Town Residential as chief creative officer of the company’s new Town Creative agency.
