Brown Harris Stevens
Brown Harris Stevens is a residential real estate brokerage firm in New York City, specializing in high-end properties. It is a subsidiary of Terra Holdings. As of September 2015, the firm was led by Hall Willkie, who holds the title of president. BHS has 17 residential offices in the New York region, including its headquarters at 770 Lexington Avenue. There are two South Florida offices as well as two offices dedicated to a small commercial services wing of the firm. Brown Harris Stevens dates from the late 19th century and was acquired in 1995 by the principals who later formed Terra. The firm has also been on the buying end of several mergers, having absorbed two New York boutique brokerages. Its 2004 acquisition of William B. May helped Brown Harris Stevens launch its Brooklyn footprint, and its 2009 acquisition of Edward Lee Cave gave it a new division.
