Elliman agent departs for Core, following string of defections

March 17, 2011 12:20PM

Agent Vickey Barron has left Prudential Douglas Elliman, according to Core, the boutique residential brokerage where she’s starting on as a managing director. Barron’s move follows a recent exodus from Elliman, that has included high-profile agents Tamir Shemesh, who left for the Corcoran Group, and Ilan Bracha who launched a new Keller Williams franchise. Shaun Osher, CEO of Core, said he expects Barron to be “an educator and innovator” at Core. Barron, for her part, said she was drawn to Core because it “doesn’t focus on competition.” Barron is a past winner of the Real Estate Board of New York’s Rookie of the Year award and sits on REBNY’s education and ethics committees. Elliman did not immediately respond to requests for comment. TRD
