MNS to open ‘Edge’-y new office

Residential brokerage MNS is livin’ on the Edge. The company will soon open an office at Douglaston Development’s the Edge, the 500-unit new-construction condo in Williamsburg, MNS CEO Andrew Barrocas told The Real Deal.

MNS has secured 3,000 feet of space for a storefront office at 34 North 6th Street, the south tower of the Edge, Barrocas said. The firm will house 40 brokers in the new office, which is slated to open in January 2013.

MNS, the company formed by the 2011 merger of the Real Estate Group New York and the Developers Group, also has locations in Chelsea and Gramercy Park and an additional outpost in Williamsburg.

MNS handled sales and marketing at the Edge, which launched in 2008 and recently sold out, the firm said.

Barrocas said the 40 brokers stationed at the Edge office will be new hires and agents relocated from the firm’s other Williamsburg office at Bedford Avenue and North 8th Street.

It made sense to open a second Williamsburg office, Barrocas said, because the hipster neighborhood is a core area for MNS. He estimated that in the second quarter of 2012, MNS sold more than half of all new condo units that changed hands in Williamsburg.

“We have sold more apartments in the area than anyone else, and will be marketing quite a few projects” there, Barrocas said.  “We feel strongly about expanding in an area where we have so much business.”
