Brown Harris Stevens announced thatChris Poore has joined the firm’s 445 Park Avenue office.
In the real estate business for nearly two decades, Poore is one of the preeminent real estate agents in NYC representing a long list of A-list properties in both resale and new development.
He joins BHS from Sotheby’s along with his husband Eyal Dagan. Over the last six years he was at Sotheby’s, Poore was named within the firm a top 10 producer in NYC, a top 25 agent in the country, and transacted more than $350 million in closed sales.
“After six years at Sotheby’s, I felt it was time to move to a new firm with new energy in order to level-up my business. BHS is a respected heritage brand – independently owned and operated – with a dedicated focus on both resale and new development. The company’s recent merger with Halstead and expansion into different regions will allow me to work seamlessly in all of the markets my clients want to be,” said Poore.
“I am beyond excited to welcome Chris to Brown Harris Stevens during this incredible time of growth for the company. On the heels of our restructuring with Halstead, Chris will have access to our increased marketing and tech resources, locations, and management team. I look forward to a successful future together,” said Bess Freedman, CEO.
In June, Brown Harris restructured to bring Halstead under the Brown Harris Stevens brand. The firm now includes 2,500 agents across 55 offices throughout New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, the Hamptons, Hudson Valley, Palm Beach and Miami.
Combined, the firms had more than $9 billion in sales in 2019, making the new Brown Harris Stevens one of the largest independently owned real estate brokerages in the country.
