Howard Morrel and Leslie Hirsch are bringing their team of international specialists to Engel & Völkers, the Germany-based brokerage that opened its first Manhattan office in May.

The five-person team has worked largely with foreign clients during its five years with Brown Harris Stevens, and will continue to do so at Engel & Völkers, Crain’s reported. The group’s language specializations will allow it to facilitate deals with Chinese, Russian and South American clients, according to the website.

Over the course of 15 years, the Morrel team has sold more than $1 billion of property, according to Crain’s. Brown Harris Stevens acquired the firm in 2009, as previously reported. [Crain’s]Tom DiChristopher
