Christopher Halstead of Brown Harris Stevens

Real estate legend Clark Halstead is no stranger to leadership, having co-founded major brokerage firms Sotheby’s International Realty and its namesake, Halstead Property. Now it’s his nephew’s turn to take the lead, starting with Connecticut.

Christopher Halstead is stepping down from his agent role to lead Brown Harris Stevens’ Connecticut Brokerage as Executive Director of Sales.

Halstead previously spent 12 years as an agent in New York for his uncle’s namesake company and remained at Brown Harris Stevens following its merger with Halstead in 2020.

“I’ve thought about it a lot because it’s a real big pivot and a transition to something new, but I’m excited about it,” he said. “It’s a new chapter.

In his new role, Halstead will oversee more than 200 agents and work with sales managers in six offices across the state, including Greenwich, Darien and Westport. It’s a new full-time position that was previously held by part-time consultants, Halstead said.

Although he spent most of his time doing business in New York City, Halstead says he is familiar with the Connecticut market, having grown up in Westport and lived in Southport for almost a decade.

His managerial debut comes at a time when Greenwich’s residential market is – like much of the rest of the country – hot, with a lack of inventory sparking the most expensive bidding wars the city has seen since. at least four years.

“Certainly, inventory is something that we’re going to work with and help our agents understand how to approach their existing rolodexes and find ways to bring salespeople to the table so that we can continue to meet demand, which is certainly present and important, ”said Halstead.

BHS CEO Bess Freedman noted that the young Halstead had “a solid understanding” of the New York City and Fairfield County housing markets “and the significant synergy between the two.”

“We are fortunate to count it as a resource in this increasingly competitive market,” she added.

Halstead’s appointment is the latest in a series of moves to Brown Harris Stevens in recent weeks, with a handful of real estate professionals saying their farewells to the brokerage about a year since its merger with Halstead and is became the largest private brokerage on the East Coast.

Halstead co-founder Diane Ramirez recently resigned as executive chairman of the brokerage. The brokerage’s own Richard Ferrari has also left the brokerage to become CEO of Douglas Elliman in New York, a move announced on Monday.
