It’s no surprise to me that today’s Biggest Brokerages piece in The Real Deal highlights a competitive banter between Corcoran’s Pam Liebman and Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Dottie Herman while the most remarkable stat that I see in the report is that the ranks of Charles Rutenberg (new and improved sexy web site on the way) have grown exponentially!
A 52.1% increase in the number of Manhattan agents! A 64.9% increase in the number of Manhattan listings! A 10.7% increase in the number of listings per Manhattan agent. And check this out:
A whopping 151.6% increase in $ volume while 9 of the top 12 firms in this category saw some major declines!
So for those who continue to doubt the model, just watch as Charles Rutenberg quietly becomes even a greater force in the Manhattan residential real estate marketplace…and a Rutenberg commercial division has arrived too!
