We’re pleased to announce that Sandy Wilson, Halstead’s longtime Executive Director of Sales in Harlem, has been promoted to additionally oversee the firm’s successful Riverdale office. Brown Harris Stevens and Halstead are currently restructuring to operate as one united Brown Harris Stevens brand.
Before joining Halstead in 2013, Ms. Wilson worked for 10 years at Corcoran, and managed their Harlem location for many of those years. She also worked for a boutique agency in Westchester where she became an expert in the Riverdale market.
“I am very excited to support agents in both Harlem and Riverdale -- two communities I know and love -- during this time of growth for Brown Harris Stevens,” said Ms. Wilson. “As the real estate industry reopens in NYC, I look forward to working with Bess and my fellow BHS sales directors to create a stronger company for the post-pandemic era.”
Prior to her impressive real estate career, Ms. Wilson was an accomplished business leader within the travel industry. She worked at American Express for 25 years and won many awards for superior financial performance and customer satisfaction. She led a team of 25 people in creating, negotiating contracts for, and managing all Travel Related Programs for the Platinum and Centurion cards. Her team was also responsible for the Gold Card Membership Rewards Travel Programs.
“As we look toward the future, I am confident that our deeply experienced agents in Harlem and now Riverdale will gain a wealth of knowledge and expertise from Sandy that will help them take their businesses to even greater heights,” said Brown Harris Stevens CEO Bess Freedman.
Halstead, which is joining Brown Harris Stevens, has been the market leader in Riverdale for many years. The expanded Brown Harris Stevens brand now includes 2,500 agents across the New York Tristate area and South Florida. Combined, the firms transacted more than $9 billion in sales in 2019.
