CORE has absorbed the Hedding Property Group as part of its hiring of Douglas Heddings as the new executive vice president of sales, the brokerage announced today.
Heddings, a veteran broker, had founded the residential brokerage Heddings Property Group in 2010 after leaving Rutenberg Realty. HPG opened an office at 119 West 23rd Street in Chelsea last year following the closure of several suburban outposts.
“In this new role, he will oversee our growing sales division, which has more than doubled over the last two years, recruit and mentor our team of agents and lead the way in the implementation of our growth plan and strategy,” CORE CEO Shaun Osher said in a statement.
Heddings’ firm shared a seventh-floor Chelsea space with commercial firm Jonathan Barry Associates. The office opened last year following the closure of several suburban outposts, as previously reported. — Mark Maurer
