Third time’s the charm for Corcoran Group agent Mike Fabbri.
After stints at Douglas Elliman and then Compass — where he was director of social media and agent development, respectively — Fabbri decided to ply his trade as a broker in 2016.
On Tuesday, Fabbri and business partner Scott Francis were named rookies of the year at Corcoran’s annual sales meeting and awards ceremony. Michael Tannen was rookie of the year in Brooklyn.
Held at Guastavino’s, the ceremony kicked off with a rendition of “Seasons of Love,” from the musical “Rent,” performed by a choir made up of Corcoran executives, staff, and agents.
Corcoran also honored Susanna Lendrum and Hilary Landis — each with a deal of the year award — for closing the $91.1 million at 432 Park Avenue and the $55 million sale of art dealer Robert Ellsworth’s co-op at 960 Fifth Avenue.
The deals were the most expensive condo and co-op sales of 2017.
Corcoran was the No. 1 firm on The Real Deal‘s recent ranking of Manhattan’s top residential brokerages. The firm sold $6.29 billion worth of exclusive listings in the borough in 2017 — up 3 percent from $6.13 billion. By comparison, Elliman had $5.23 billion in closed sales, down 4 percent from $5.42 billion.
In Brooklyn, the Cornell Marshall team topped the leaderboard, as did Deborah Rieders, who was named Brooklyn salesperson of the year. Brooklyn agent Vicki Negron landed the top rental honor.
