Regis Roumila, one of Nest Seekers International’s top agents, is flying off to the Corcoran Group’s Chelsea office.
The Paris native, who joined Nest Seekers in 2011, attended law school at the Sorbonne and worked in advertising before turning to real estate in 2000. After moving to New York, he did stints at several firms, including Citi Habitats and CORE. Corcoran said at Nest Seekers, he was the firm’s No. 2 agent in 2015, behind Ryan Serhant.
Roumila said he hoped the move to Corcoran would help him take his business to a new level. His recent deals include the sale of a three-bedroom co-op at 279 Central Park West for nearly $7 million and a penthouse at 401 East 60th Street that went for $5.9 million.
In a statement, Nest Seekers CEO Eddie Shapiro said he understands and respects the need for change. “He contributed greatly to our organization for many years,” he wrote. “Our door will always be open for Regis. We look forward to having him back soon.”
As for Corcoran, the Pam Liebman-led firm has been on something of a recruiting tear of late.
