Call them the in-betweeners. They’re too small to be gigantic firms and too large to be boutiques. They’re New York City’s mid-size residential firms. And in 2013, for the first time, The Real Deal compiled a list ranking these firms by dollar volume of listings (in addition to looking at brokerage behemoths and boutiques as in years past). CORE finished first, followed by Warburg Realty.

Source note: First published in the May 2013 issue of The Real Deal. Data was gathered from OLR in mid-March, except for the number of Manhattan agents, which was gathered from brokerage websites. Rankings include Manhattan-based brokerages and agents, and active Manhattan residential listings updated within 90 days. Multifamily properties and listings in contract, or that have pending offers, were excluded. Firms with 50+ agents who didn’t make the biggest firms list were eligible. No comparison with earlier years was possible because this was the first time the ranking appeared in The Real Deal.
