Brokerage giants Brown Harris Stevens, Halstead to merge

first_imgShare via Shortlink TagsBrown Harris StevensHalsteadTerra Holdings Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Brown Harris Stevens’ Bess Freedman  and Halstead’s Diane RamirezTwo of the biggest names in New York City residential brokerage are joining forces.Sister companies Brown Harris Stevens and Halstead will merge under the BHS banner, owner Terra Holdings said Thursday. The combined firm will have 2,500 agents. Last year the brokerages’ sales totaled $9 billion, according to data from Real Trends.The fusion of two mainstay brands — each with a distinctive company culture — comes amid consolidation in the industry and as residential firms look to dig themselves out of a hole deepend by coronavirus. Even before the pandemic, a slowdown in the luxury market squeezed already-thin brokerage margins.In a statement, Terra COO Alan Kersner said the restructuring will expand Brown Harris Stevens’ footprint and resources as the housing market recovers.According to Kersner, the transition will occur in phases, starting in New York. Brown Harris Stevens CEO Bess Freedman will be chief executive of the unified brokerage. Halstead CEO Diane Ramirez, who co-founded the firm in 1987, will stay on as a senior executive. So will BHS president Hall Willkie, Halstead president Richard Grossman and Terra Development Marketing president Stephen Kliegerman.Kersner said BHS will keep its headquarters at 445 Park Avenue, but Terra didn’t disclose plans for Halstead’s flagship, a 17,000-square-foot space at 499 Park Avenue. The combined company will have 54 other offices in New York City and the Hamptons, Connecticut, New Jersey, Palm Beach and Miami.Kersner, responding to questions via text message, said Terra’s goal is to retain as many employees as possible. The company also aims to keep legacy offices open, “as long as it makes sense financially.”Although Terra will be able to shave off “procedural redundancies,” Kersner said the company will double down on technology and marketing.“It’s no secret that the real estate industry has changed, especially with all of the aggregators and iBuyers now competing for business,” he said. “In order to stay competitive, brokerages have to adapt. This restructuring was not a spur of the moment decision, but the pandemic certainly forced us to act quickly.”Arthur Zeckendorf, William Lie Zeckendorf, David Burris, Kent Swig, and Eric HadarTerra — owned by Arthur Zeckendorf, William Lie Zeckendorf, Kent Swig, David Burris and Eric Hadar — has owned BHS and Halstead since 1995 and 2001, respectively.Despite their common ownership, the firms have cornered different parts of the residential market. Established in 1873, BHS is a dominant player in the luxury market and has been for decades. The blue-blooded firm represented Jeff Bezos when the Amazon chief paid a record $80 million last year for a spread at 212 Fifth Avenue.More than a century younger, Halstead has 32 offices, a strong rental division and is known for being more of a volume player on the sales side. By acquiring regional brokerages over the years, it has built a strong presence in the outer boroughs, Connecticut and New Jersey. Last year, Halstead closed $362.3 million sell-side deals in Brooklyn and $179.1 million in Queens, according to an analysis by The Real Deal.Read moreBHS chief of tech, comms out amid shakeup Corcoran, Citi Habitats to merge BHS names Bess Freedman CEO Both BHS and Halstead — and their competitors — had to make strategic cuts during the pandemic. In April, Terra slashed executive pay and furloughed employees across the organization.Executives say by joining forces, the combined organization will emerge stronger from an unprecedented few months in which brokerage was nearly shut down.“As the real estate industry begins to reopen around the country, we are growing a company with a purposeful culture and incredible depth and breadth for the future,” Freedman said in a statement.The deal gives the combined firm more muscle — more than 1,600 agents and $3.25 billion in sales — at the top of New York’s cutthroat brokerage business. Market-leader Douglas Elliman, with 2,460 agents, closed $7.96 billion sell-side deals in the metro area in 2019, according to TRD’s analysis. The Corcoran Group came next with $7.84 billion in sell-side sales, followed by Compass with $4.85 billion.Pre-pandemic, the leaderboard saw a wave of consolidation. Last year, SoftBank-backed Compass acquired Stribling & Associates, one of the city’s last independent firms. And in January, Realogy’s Corcoran Group and Citi Habitats said they would formally merge after operating as “sister” companies for nearly two decades.Smaller firms have also joined forces to retain profitability in a tight market, including Bond New York (which bought Caliber), Living New York (which merged with Mdrn. Residential) and Keller Williams Midtown (which was acquired and then merged with KW Tribeca).Write to E.B. Solomont at [email protected]last_img read more

Captrust adds $154 billion in plan assets with Cammack deal

first_img House committee poised to advance SECURE 2.0 retirement savings bill Cammack, which was founded more than 50 years ago, brings $154 billion in retirement plan assets under administration to the national Captrust network.While Cammack is already a large and established firm specializing in retirement plans, its executives said partnering with Captrust was about becoming part of a larger organization.“As we’ve grown, we’ve had a national footprint for a little while, and even though we had many locations, we were at a disadvantage by not being with an organization with locations in all 50 states,” said Jeff Levy, Cammack managing partner.In an environment of record-setting merger and acquisition activity, Levy said, “People have been chasing us for a year.”“We have for a long time felt we had a high presence in the retirement plan industry, but we weren’t interested in simply being absorbed,” he said. “We wanted to partner with someone with the same vision, ethics and nature of services.” Newsletters The Gates divorce: Lessons for financial advisers Captrust Financial Advisors has boosted its assets under administration to more than $600 billion with the acquisition of New York-based Cammack Retirement Group.

UPDATE 3: Japan faces fresh nuclear threat

Twitter Previous articleUPDATE 2: Japan’s nuclear reactor “not damaged” in explosionNext articleUPDATE 4: Second blast at Japanese nuclear plant chloecox TAGSBCHydro There has been no confirmation of what caused the explosion but speculation is that it was the result of high levels of hydrogen mixing with air as a consequence of the steam venting process, which was carried out to relive the pressure in the reactor. Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which operates the Fukushima-Daiichi plant, is also venting steam to relieve the pressure in the reactor. The building housing Reactor No.1 was severely damaged in an explosion yesterday, releasing low levels of radiation.

RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Japanese government has increased the exclusion zone around the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant to over 20 km. According to a BBC report, a meltdown at reactor No.3 would be potentially more severe than at the other Fukushima reactors. This is because the reactor is fuelled by a mixture of plutonium and uranium rather than only uranium, meaning the effects of any radiation leak would be much more serious.last_img read more

Cracks appear on floor of glass viewing platform in Chicago’s Willis Tower

first_imgbenedek/iStock(CHICAGO) — Visitors to Chicago’s Willis Tower, the city’s tallest building, captured video that appears to show cracks in the glass floor of its SkyDeck ledge 103 floors above ground. A Willis Tower spokesperson told ABC Chicago station WLS-TV that “no one was ever in danger.” “The protective coating, which acts like a screen protector for the ledge, experienced some minor cracking,” the spokesperson said.Nevertheless, the footage posted to social media earlier this week shows visitors looking somewhat alarmed.The ledge is comprised of glass enclosures that protrude 4.3 feet away from the building, giving visitors a 360-degree view about 1,300 feet above the city, according to the attraction’s website.The spokesperson told WLS that the coating had been replaced and that the ledge is back open for business.It’s not the first time the coating has cracked. In May 2014, tourists captured photographs of the floor beneath them seeming to shatter. At the time, Willis Tower told reporters the protective coating is designed to keep the ledge from getting scratched up by visitors.The 110-story Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, is the second-tallest building in the United States.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

This month in Harvard history

first_imgJune 1766 — Designed by colonial governor Sir Francis Bernard, the new Harvard Hall (still standing, with several later modifications) opens to replace its predecessor, destroyed by fire in 1764.
