Ilan Bracha, chairman of the Manhattan brokerage Keller Williams NYC, the local franchise of national firm Keller Williams Realty, is moving up in the world in accordance with the growth of his franchise, which has accumulated more than 160 agents in the last year.

Bracha and wife Mati Bracha, an artist, have purchased a four-bedroom, 3,056-square-foot penthouse at the Extell Development’s Rushmore condominium at 80 Riverside Boulevard, according to public records filed with the city today. The deed for the property is in Mati’s name, records show. 

The couple purchased the apartment directly from the Corcoran Group’s sales office at the building for $5.2 million; the unit was asking $6.8 million. Monthly charges at the building average $0.87 per square foot thanks to a 421-a tax abatement, according to Streeteasy.com. Lynn Brown, a salesperson at Corcoran, declined to comment on the sale.

Meanwhile, Ilan is still trying to sell his 1,425-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit with river views from at A Trump Place 220, further north at 220 Riverside Boulevard, a Streeteasy.com listing shows.

The unit has been on the market since early last year and is listed with Ilan himself for $2.69 million. He purchased it for $1.37 million, or $924 per square foot, in 2004.

Ilan was not immediately available for comment.

The exec caused a stir last year when he departed Prudential Douglas Elliman to start the Keller Williams franchise. He recently opened a new 25,000-square-foot office at 425 Park Avenue but will continue to work out of the firm’s office at 725 Fifth AvenueThe Real Deal previously reported.
