Following its recent northward expansion, Bond New York has brought in Keller Williams’ Fanny Montalvo to be managing director of its offices in Chelsea and Union Square.

In October, Bond inked a lease for its new corporate headquarters at 810 Seventh Avenue in Midtown. The former managing director for the brokerage’s Chelsea office, Adam Taylor, is relocating to the 17,000-square foot flagship where he will manage 250 agents.

Montalvo was the Managing Broker of Record at Keller Williams NYC for the past four years, managing as many as 700 agents. Her 14-year real estate industry experience also included stints at Bellmarc Coldwell Banker and Fenwick Keats Realty. During her time at Fenwick Keats, Montalvo once worked out of 64 West 21st Street, the location of Bond’s Chelsea office.

“The BOND family of agents is comprised of mostly agents and managers that I was fortunate to work with and know from my tenure at Bellmarc Coldwell Banker,” Montalvo said in the announcement. “This opportunity seemed destined and full circle — a chance to be located at an office I have loved and lamented over relocating from years ago.”

Montalvo’s responsibilities will include managing and recruiting agents as well as industry compliance adherence.

The brokerage, led by Bruno Ricciotti, is still looking for a manager for its new 5,000-square foot space on the Upper East Side, at 324 East 86th Street, for which it also signed a lease in October.
