For more than a decade, Peter McCuen and Jim St. Andre worked hand-in-hand to sell some of the priciest homes in New York City. But the longtime team has split, following St. Andre’s move to CORE.

A spokesperson for CORE confirmed that St. Andre joined the firm but declined to comment otherwise.

St. Andre, who was a professional soccer player before turning to real estate, joined Peter McCuen & Associates 12 years ago.

Peter McCuen is a tiny firm, even among the city’s boutique brokerages. With St. Andre’s departure, it’s down to two brokers. The firm had $64.8 million in listings as of March 31, according to The Real Deal’s most recent ranking of Manhattan residential firms.

Between them, however, McCuen and St. Andre brokered eight-figure deals, including many tony townhouses. Last year, for example, the firm sold a townhouse at 36 East 61st Street to Thor Equities for $27 million. And in 2012, they sold adjoining brick buildings at 85-89 Jane Street for $32 million. Recently, Peter McCuen & Associates put a townhouse, at 449 West 24 Street, into contract asking $9.25 million, more than twice the amount of the last sale price of $3.8 million in 2012.

St. Andre did not respond to requests for comment. But his online bio at CORE states: “Jim joins CORE to tap into the firm’s strong experience in new development and to elevate his specialized townhouse and private brokerage businesses through CORE’s robust platform and resources.”

St. Andre’s current listings include a 2,723-square-foot condo at 23 East 22nd Street that’s asking $10.495 million.

Reached by phone Tuesday, McCuen declined to comment. Asked if he was staying in business, he said: “Absolutely.”
