Heather Sargent, a longtime Corcoran Group agent specializing in the Uptown co-op market, has jumped to Brown Harris Stevens.

Along with Sargent, her team members Caitlin Williams and Wendy McCarthy also joined BHS, the firm said. “We are thrilled to have them on our team,” Hall Willkie and Bess freedman, BHS’ co-presidents, wrote in an email to agents.

Corcoran did not immediately comment.

Sargent got into real estate in 1997, when she joined Corcoran and was mentored by Sharon Baum. Last month, Sargent briefly listed an Upper East Side mansion belonging to the daughter of former Bears Sterns CEO James Cayne for $30 million. The house at 10 East 75th Street was previously on the market for $38.5 million. Sargent was the listing broker at 30 East 72nd Street when George Stephanopoulos bought a $6.5 million apartment in 2010.

Like the city’s other residential firms, BHS has been on a recruiting spree. It’s hired around 20 agents over the past few months, including Antonio del Rosario, who was previously at Town Residential.

In 2017, BHS increased its Manhattan headcount by 27 percent for a total of 627 agents, according to The Real Deal‘s 2018 ranking of top residential firms. BHS said it closed $1.7 billion in sell-side deals in Manhattan in 2017.
