Brown Harris Stevens Announces 2022 Top Deals, Agents and Teams in Virtual Awards Presentation

 Brown Harris Stevens (BHS), the premier privately owned real estate services company celebrating 150 years in business, has announced their company and regional 2022 top deals, top individual agents, and top teams awards in the season three premiere episode of The Lead with Bess Freedman video series, featuring an interview with industry legend Barbara Corcoran. 

Companywide, Vivian Dimond and Jeff Cohen were honored for 2022’s top sale, $120M in Surfside, FL; the Harkov Lewis Team earned the firm’s honor of Top Team; and for the seventh consecutive year, Lisa K. Lippman was named Brown Harris Stevens’ number one individual agent. 

“Our world class agents continue to weather an ever-changing housing landscape with great success,” stated BHS CEO Bess Freedman. “After a record-breaking 2021 and first half of 2022, the 2023 housing market is shaping up to be a bit of a transition year as an improving economy and lower rates take hold.
