After litigating for four months, Town Residential and Wendy Maitland have reached a settlement. Maitland used to work for Town residential in the past and had leveled some allegations against Joseph Sitt, a former co-owner of Town. She was also claiming that she should have been allowed to go out of her agreement not to compete with Town as she depended on brokerage to feed ad support her family.
The complete settlement terms were not fully disclosed but she will continue working at Brown Harris Stevens (BHS) as the resale and new developments broker. Andrew Heiberger, the founder and CEO of Town Residential, clarified that no money had changed hands in the course of coming up with the settlement agreement. He added that since the matter had reached its conclusion, it is now possible for the firm to focus on its continued success and the fall season that is exciting. On the other hand Maitland also expressed her relief on the conclusion of the matter and wished the firm well in its future endeavors. She will now focus on developing her new career chapter. Heiberger gained full control of Town Residential after buying the 50% stake that was owned by the company.
