Serena Boardman and Carrie Chiang made the most appearances on The Real Deal’s weekly top agent list during the second half of 2009.
The Real Deal’s list tracks the top five real estate agents with the highest priced residential sales each week, based on residential deals filed with the city. The feature began about halfway through the year.
Boardman, a senior vice president at Sotheby’s International Realty, ranked number one, making the list six times, followed by Carrie Chiang, a senior vice president at the Corcoran Group, who made the list five times.
Deals recorded during each week do not necessarily reflect current market conditions due to the lag time between when a contract is signed, closes and is recorded with the city.
Boardman’s current listings include a massive $75 million mansion at 22 East 71st Street and the high-profile Bernard Madoff penthouse apartment.
In the last half of 2009, Chiang’s highest priced closed and recorded sale was an $8.5 million penthouse apartment at 161 West 61st Street, according to The Real Deal’s lists. Chiang was ranked number one in The Real Deal’s top Manhattan agent survey, in May, based on total dollar value of listings. Boardman was number five.
The real estate firm which garnered the greatest number of top agent spots on The Real Deal’s lists over the last six months was Corcoran, with 29 closings, followed by BHS with 26, Sotheby’s with 21, Stribling with 18 and Elliman with 14.
The data only includes sellers’ brokers, because buyers’ brokers’ names are not available in city data or listings. Only deals where an individual broker and address can be identified were included. As a result, private sales, listings where an address was not provided and new development sales by a sales center were not included. TRD
