Meet 15 CPW’s broker specialist

Dec.December 30, 2010 02:49 PM

Brown Harris Stevens’ Richard Wallgren has nabbed perhaps the best gig in Manhattan: “broker specialist” at the city’s most expensive condo, 15 Central Park West.

Wallgren, a 15 CPW resident, was director of sales at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building before it was sold out, and now handles many of the resales there. While a number of brokers live and do deals in the limestone building, Wallgren occupies a small sponsor-owned office on the first floor. (Arthur and William Zeckendorf, 15 CPW’s developers, are the part owners of Terra Holdings, the parent company of Brown Harris Stevens and Halstead Property.) Moreover, Wallgren’s been designated “broker specialist” by BHS, which manages the building.

While that’s a great way to get referrals, it doesn’t mean Wallgren does all of the resales in the building, he explained during a recent tour of the condo. “I wish I had them all,” he said.

Wallgren, formerly an investment banker at now-defunct Salomon Brothers, also keeps busy with resales outside of 15 CPW. And soon he’ll get even busier: He’ll be working with the Zeckendorfs and Stern on their next collaboration, a conversion of the former Salvation Army ladies’ dorm at 18 Gramercy Park South. Not surprisingly, however, Wallgren said, “we’re not talking about it yet.”
