Carol Cohen, beset by 737 Park litigation, makes few deals

Carol Cohen, the former Corcoran Group broker fired when her landlord sued her — unsuccessfully — for allegedly hiding income to hang on to her rent-stabilized home at 737 Park Avenue, has made few sales since joining Brown Harris Stevens.

So far this year, Cohen has completed one sale and has no listings, according to the New York Times. The story did not mention whether she had worked on rentals.

Though Cohen prevailed against the Katz family, the former owners of 737 Park, she is now involved in another lawsuit filed by Harry Macklowe, who is converting the building to luxury condominiums and accused the broker of tax fraud, as The Real Deal previously reported.

Amid the fracas with the Katzes, Cohen was terminated by Corcoran in December 2010. She was not permitted to retrieve her personal belongings or list of business contacts, and responded by suing Corcoran for $3 million in damages the following year, as The Real Deal reported.

Through a spokeswoman at Brown Harris Stevens, Cohen declined to comment to the Times, as did Corcoran. [NYT]Julie Strickland
