Halstead Property awarded the top sales and rental agents for the first half of 2008, including Jill Sloane for highest grossing sales in Manhattan, at a semi-annual ceremony at the Ziegfeld Theatre today.

Sloane, an executive vice president, has previously won top Halstead awards but is a new member of the company’s diamond club of brokers who have completed transactions in excess of $10 million. She also received the second place award for the greatest number of closed sales.

Second place in Manhattan’s highest grossing sales category went to Eloise Johnson, an executive vice president. Third place went to another executive vice president, Dean Feldman.

Pat Publik, an executive vice president who received two top performance awards in both 2006 and 2007, won in the highest closed sales category and received the sole award for highest number of listings sold.

Third place in sales closed went to Louise Phillips Forbes, an executive vice president.

In Brooklyn, the top grossing sales person was an associate broker Linda VanderWoude; in Riverdale the winner was Daniel Wright, a vice president; and in Hudson Valley, agent Chris Pomeroy took the prize.

In development marketing, the top grossing sales persons were Sue Kim, a vice president, and Suzette Meshulam, a senior vice president, who together oversee sales at Chatham 44 in the Clinton neighborhood.

For the greatest number of sales closed in development marketing, the award went to 10-year Halstead veteran Eugene Cordano, who is based in the Soho office but holds the titles of director of sales in Long Island City and broker of record for Halstead Property New Jersey, a new turf for the brokerage.

The highest rental commission awards were: first place to Denise Rosner, a senior vice president; second place to Jyll Chertoff, an executive vice president; and third place to a senior vice president, Rona Mann, a 20-year veteran.

In the final category, the greatest number of closed rental deals went to Michael Bergen, a vice president; second place went to Senad Ahmetovic, also a vice president and previous award winner; and third place went to Antonio Hamimi, an agent.
