Linda May, the powerful Coldwell Banker Previews International broker who’s represented actor Kelsey Grammar, fashion magnate Georges Marciano and the Rothschild French banking family, has defected to Hilton Hyland.

May had run a boutique brokerage agency under the Coldwell Banker Previews umbrella for 21 years.

May’s partners, broker Guy Levy and marketing expert Megan Roberts, have also made the move.

“Linda May and her team are synonymous with luxury real estate in Los Angeles. We’re thrilled that we’ve been able to bring them in to Hilton & Hyland and provide them a platform to enjoy further success,” said Jeff Hyland, founding partner of Hilton & Hyland.

May is just the latest in a string of Coldwell Banker agents to make moves in recent months.

Stan Richman, a veteran in Beverly Hills real estate who ran Coldwell Banker’s most profitable office nationwide, jumped to Compass last year and Leah Sternberg, a longtime Coldwell Banker manager, was tapped to lead the company’s Pasadena office.
