Manhattan’s top agents


In the battle for broker supremacy, John Burger of Brown Harris Stevens held on to the top spot again this past year after also finishing at the top in 2012. The white-glove broker had more than $410 million in listings at the time of the survey in mid-2013. Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s, meanwhile, jumped to the second place spot from the number five slot in the ranking the prior year. And Deborah Grubman of the Corcoran Group finished third, a big leap from 11th place the previous year.

Source: First published in the June 2013 issue of The Real Deal. Data comes from OLR and includes Manhattan residential sales listings (apartments and townhouses with no commercial/retail component) that were active or in contract on May 1 and had been updated within the previous 30 days. Known teams and partnerships are counted as a single entity. Listings shared by two or more agents are counted as full listings for each agent. On-site agents who work exclusively for a developer have not been counted. However, if an agent works for a brokerage firm, and he/she has been included on this list, new development listings were included in agents’ totals. Listings in contract were counted.
