From the October issue: While the first-time homebuyer tax credit and record-low interest rates drove home sales in Staten Island and nudged a comeback from the depths of the recession, that uptick has leveled off.

But even in a tough market, somebody has to come out on top.

This month, The Real Deal looked at the top residential firms on Staten Island, ranking them by number of agents, number of sales and listing volume in our first-ever snapshot of the city’s smallest borough. The hands-down winner in all categories was the 129-agent Robert DeFalco Realty, which is headquartered in the Dongan Hills section of the borough.

The firm had 635 sales, or a 10 percent share of the entire Staten Island market, between July 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010, according to data provided by the Staten Island Board of Realtors. [more]
