Danny Davis — Town Residential’s bike-riding, top-selling Tribeca agent — is rolling to a stop at the Corcoran Group.

Town’s longtime No. 1 agent will work out of Corcoran’s Soho office, according to the firm, which has now picked up three of Town’s biggest names following the abrupt closure of two divisions last month.

Davis — who got his start as a rental agent right out of college —closed $147 million deals in 2017, according to the research firm Real Trends.

To date, he’s done $2 billion in sales — first as the No. 1 agent at Citi Habitats and later at Town, which he joined in 2012. At Town, he sold around $750 million worth of real estate, working with clients including Danny Glover and Sting. Earlier this year, he rented a $29,000-a-month penthouse at 475 Greenwich Street in Tribeca to supermodel Christie Brinkley.

Town shuttered its resale and leasing business on April 19, setting off a feeding frenzy among firms eager to scoop up its agents and listings.

Last week, Corcoran hired Steve Gold, a co-star on “Million Dollar Listing: New York,” and Dana Power from Town.

In a statement, Davis said the move was bittersweet but the change would be a “positive springboard” for expanding his business. He currently has around $33 million in for-sale listings, including a three-bedroom at 95 Franklin Street asking $6.45 million. He’s also marketing the penthouse at 508 LaGuardia Place, which is asking $40,000 a month in rent.
