Kevin Kurland is returning to brokerage.

Kurland, who sold his stake in 100 percent commission firm Spire Group last year, has joined Citi Habitats as senior managing director of the Greenwich Village office.

In his new role, Kurland will be responsible for boosting agents’ production and recruiting. He will lead the office alongside Anthony Palmieri.

“I decided to start the next chapter of my professional life back at Citi Habitats because I believe in their vision for the future of the firm,” Kurland said in a statement Monday.

Citi Habitats, which has a reputation as specializing in rentals, placed 15th in The Real Deal’s recent ranking of Manhattan residential brokerages by closed sales. The firm, founded by Town Residential’s Andrew Heiberger and sold to Realogy’s NRT division in 2004 for $50 million, closed $142.5 million in sales volume last year.

Kurland sold his stake in Spire in March 2017 for an undisclosed amount and said he’d be a full-time agent for at least a year, focused on luxury real estate. He worked at Citi Habitats as an agent in 1996.
