UPDATED: July 2, 8:12 p.m.: Leslie Wilson, one of Related Cos.’ top salespeople, resigned this week, several months into the mega-developer’s partnership with boutique brokerage CORE, The Real Deal has learned.

Wilson joined Related in 2006 after nearly 20 years in finance and became one of the developers’ top producers. During her 10 years at Related, she sold condos at the developer’s 57-unit Super Ink condominium in the West Village as well as its 53-unit condo project at One Madison. To date, Wilson has overseen more than $2 billion in luxury condo sales, according to her bio.

Wilson joined CORE in 2014, after Related acquired a 50 percent stake in the boutique brokerage.

CORE directed inquiries about her departure to Related. The developer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Wilson’s move follows the recent departure, from CORE, of Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon, who decamped to Douglas Elliman in May.

Overall, however, CORE has been adding agents and snagging more exclusive listings in recent months. CORE had $277.5 million worth of sales exclusives as of March 29, up from $156.9 million a year earlier, according to TRD’s annual brokerage ranking. CORE ranked No. 8 on TRD’s ranking by closed sales, with $434.6 million in done deals for the 12 months ending March 31.

In January, CORE tapped Tim Crowley as its director of new development, responsible for overseeing roughly $10 billion in new development. Previously, Crowley oversaw new development and brokerage services at Flank.
