Mitchell Cashwell, a top-producing Citi Habitat’s agent, has departed the city’s biggest rental firm after a decade to join Town Residential. Cashwell, who was recognized as a top rental agent at Citi in 2005 and as a top sales agent from 2009 to 2011, will be working out of Town’s West Village office at 45 Horatio Street starting immediately, Town told The Real Deal today.
“Town has the tools I need to take my business to another level,” Cashwell said in a statement to The Real Deal. Citi Habitats had no comment on his departure.
Cashwell is one is a series of agents to leave for Town from other city brokerages, the firm noted in a statement. Town has also announced the hiring of Beverley Rouse and Cord Stahl, previously of the Corcoran Group, who will work out of the company’s Astor Place and Upper East Side offices, respectively.
Rouse, who has worked out of Corcoran’s 660 Madison Avenue office for 14 years and whose notable sales include deals for residences at 66 Bank Street, 65 West 13th Street and 117 Prince Street, said she was eager to affiliate herself with ” a new, innovative brokerage that in less than two years has clearly established itself as one of the top Manhattan real estate agencies.”
Stahl joined Corcoran earlier this year after two years at Sotheby’s International Realty.
Cashwell is by no means the first broker to have switched to Town from Citi Habitats. As The Real Deal previously reported, a large chunk of Town’s initial recruits came from Citi, the firm Heiberger founded in 1994. For instance, Danny Davis and Matthew Van Damm, two Citi Habitats stars, were some of the brokerage’s first hires.
