New York, N.Y. (March 2, 2011) – Top producing Manhattan real estate team, Jon Phillips and Ginnie Gardiner join CORE as Senior Vice Presidents. With over twenty-five years of experience combined, Phillips and Gardiner come to CORE from Halstead where they grossed nearly $200 million in sales in the past five years. Specialists in the re-sale of lofts, historic buildings and townhouses, Phillips and Gardiner are among the industry’s most trusted agents and have sold out notable new development projects including 50 Pine Street and 124 West 24th Street.

“Jon and Ginnie exemplify what professional agents should be,” says Shaun Osher, CEO of CORE. “They have built a reputation in the industry as well-respected experts and are a great addition to our team.”

Jon Phillips’ diverse background dramatically bridges the worlds of art, politics, business and real estate. An artist with paintings of Ellis Island during its restoration on display at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, Jon was the first artist-in-residence to be appointed by The Central Park Conservancy and Parks Department. Also notable, Jon is currently completing a book chronicling the history of the New York City’s largest luxury apartment building, the Belnord, where he spent his childhood.

Ginnie Gardiner also connects her art, design, advertising and marketing background to maximize the real estate experience for clients. After graduating from Cornell with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the school of Architecture, Art and Planning, Ginnie was appointed Director of New York City’s federal art employment program matching local artists with local jobs. In addition, Ginnie’s artwork has been showcased internationally for over a decade by Pavel Zoubok Gallery in Chelsea, a member of the Art Dealers Association of America.
