The Real Deal Publisher Amir Korangy served as a panel moderator earlier this week at the New York Residential Specialist (NYRS) leadership event, held at the Citibank offices in Midtown Manhattan. The panel, titled “What’s Next For New York Real Estate Companies and Agents?” included Barbara Fox of Fox Residential Group; Bess Freedman of Brown Harris Stevens; Ellie Johnson of Sotheby’s International Realty; and Fredrick Peters of Warburg Realty. Life coach Dan Abramson also addressed the group on how to grow their business. First awarded in 2007, the NYRS designation is REBNY’s premier professional credential for residential real estate agents in New York City. To date, 328 agents from nearly 40 brokerages throughout the city are part of the NYRS network.
