Wendy Maitland is out at Brown Harris Stevens, ending a two-year tenure for the broker in which she attempted to establish an alternative new development platform.

“We have decided to part ways and we wish her well,” said a source at the firm. A spokesperson for the firm confirmed Maitland’s departure, which happened last week. The exact circumstances of her exit remain unclear.

The veteran broker moved over to BHS in 2016 after an extended battle with her former firm Town Residential, where she was president of sales. At BHS, Maitland worked on resales while also attempting to establish her own new development platform within the brokerage, Atelier WM.

Maitland said she will continue to work under her own license in collaboration with BHS on certain shared business, which she did not disclose. In addition to new development, Maitland said Atelier WM has taken on resale business as well as commercial leasing and sales.

“The fact of my departure doesn’t mean the end of our relationship,” she said of BHS.

Maitland’s closest associate at BHS, Ginger Brokaw, is expected to stay on at the firm, as is Maitland’s daughter Emma Maitland, sources said. Brokaw was a top agent at Town Residential who held many of the firm’s marquee listings, at one point representing about 14 percent of the firm’s total dollar volume of listings. She came over to BHS in July 2016, marking her second stint at the firm.

BHS closed $1.7 billion in 738 Manhattan sell-side deals in 2017, the firm said.
