It may still be a month away, but boutique brokerage CORE has announced a reshuffling of personnel in advance of the opening of its new Upper East Side office next month. CORE senior vice president Ryan Fitzpatrick has been promoted to director of sales at the firm’s Chelsea office, where he will oversee both the firm’s agents and its resale business, a spokesperson for CORE told The Real Deal today. He is taking over from Reba Miller, the current director of sales for Chelsea, who will head the firm’s new office at 673 Madison Avenue office when it opens in April, they said.
Fitzpatrick most recently oversaw sales and marketing for Walker Tower, JDS Development’s new condominium conversion at 212 West 18th Street, and has made sales in excess of $390 million since 2006, according to CORE. While he has been a broker for seven years, he previously led analyses of public debt offerings in the housing sector at Standard & Poor’s and was active in non-profit community development.
“This position is a unique opportunity for me in that it marries my experience in real estate sales with my prior tenure in the corporate world overseeing a team in financial services,” Fitzpatrick said in a statement.
The firm’s new Upper East Side retail office will occupy the second and third floors of a historic brownstone between East 61st and East 62nd streets, The Real Deal previously reported. Jewelry brand Judith Ripka operates a boutique store on the ground floor of the building.
