Score for Core: A BHS Vice Prez Joins the Firm

The Real DealMarch 16, 2012
On the heels of numerous departures from Core comes word that a Brown Harris Stevens vice president is moving to Core, according to a statement from Core today.

Jarrod Randolph, named one of Forbes magazine’s “30 under 30″ for real estate last year, will be a vice president, the statement said.

“Jarrod is the epitome of what we look for in a Core agent and the new development and resale opportunities we offer are the perfect fit for his business model,” said Reba Miller, senior managing director of sales at Core. “He is a thoroughbred of an agent.” Miller joined Core last year after the firm she founded in 1998, R.P. Miller & Associates, was acquired by Core.

“Core is a very forward-thinking brokerage that understands what tools are necessary to be successful in real estate,” Randolph said.

Core has seen many brokers come and go in recent months. Lawrence Rich, a former Prudential Douglas Elliman vice president who left in August for Core, recently defected, returning to Elliman, citing the fact that Elliman felt “more like a family.” And as The Real Deal previously reported, at least five other brokers have defected from Core since December, including Jeannie Ma, Ivana Tagliamonte and Liz Dworkin.

Randolph is starting today and will work from Core’s Chelsea location, at 127 Seventh Avenue, according to a spokesperson for Core.

Randolph sold a penthouse at the Lucida, at 151 East 85th Street, for $15.8 million last year — the highest price per square foot ever paid in the building at that time, the spokesperson said.
