A top broker from Warburg and two agents from Bond New York have moved to Town Residential in recent weeks, continuing the trend of real estate professionals leaving their firms to work for Town, The Real Deal has learned. Judi Lederer, who was recognized by Warburg two years in a row as one of the highest earners in the 969 Madison Avenue office, moved to Town as a senior vice president last week.

Lederer is working out of the 110 Fifth Avenue Town office. According to The Real Deal’s top residential agents of the week charts last summer, the Warburg senior managing director had two sales over $10 million at Two Fifth Avenue properties.

Lederer said that she made the move to Andrew Heiberger’s firm to mix it up.

“I wanted a change, because change is good in life,” she said, “and Town sounded very exciting… Town is a young, new exciting place.”

Warburg was not immediately available for comment.

In addition, two agents from Bond, Jodi Rothman and Shelley Liao, made the move together to Town three weeks ago.

Rothman was at Bond for five years. In February, she helped score a $16,500 per month rental apartment for Knicks point guard, Baron Davis, at the MiMA complex in the Times Square area. Rothman worked with Liao for six months during their time at Bond and attribute their move together to Town  to their good rapport.

“Town had what I needed to move my business forward, and I felt they had the support and would help me build my business,” Rothman said. The duo is working out of Town’s Astor Place office.

Liao said she moved not only to work more with Rothman, but also for Town’s support staff. “It was not a hard decision to move over,” she said.

Bond was not immediately available for comment.

Matthew VanDamm, director of operations for Town, said the three “come with a tremendous amount of experience and we’re excited to have them on board.”

As The Real Deal has previously reported, there have been a number of moves to Town from other brokerages in past months. In early March, Ari LeFauve and Lyon Porter, two of MNS’ most highly-ranked resale brokers, joined Town. In February, three senior vice presidents from Prudential Douglas Elliman made the move to Town.
