The Mickster reports that Greenwich Fine Properties has gone over to Coldwell Banker. This is hardly a surprise; the husband – wife team that owned GFP split long ago and the firm has seemed a bit shaky since. Great agents, but rot starts at the head, and all that. A handful of agents departed last month for Houlihan Lawrence and now it seems, the rest will be serving under Coldwell’s corporate master,Realogy.
In my experience, none of this makes any difference to the agents involved, nor should it to their customers. Brokerages, unlike agents, are all the same.
* A creation, I believe, of James Taranto of Best of the Web, meaning a haiku for departing souls. Like this:
A tidy boutique
Dissension among partners
Sold to the banker
