Mohegan Sun was the place to be on March 3 when the largest brokerage in the New York Metropolitan area, Douglas Elliman Realty, LLC, celebrated the firm’s world-class agents from around the nation at its annual awards ceremony, The Ellies.
The company is the second largest independent residential real estate brokerage in the United States by sales volume. Top performers from the East End were among the honorees at this year’s event held at the casino in Uncasville, CT.
“Each year, our talented and hardworking agents prove their status and reputation as best-in-class — and 2019 was no exception,” Douglas Elliman Executive Chairman Howard Lorber said. “We’re thrilled to celebrate the extraordinary results of their labor. As always, Elliman remains committed to providing our agents with the best technological and marketing resources to help them excel, and we know that they’ll continue this unbridled success in 2020 and beyond.”
Nationwide sales for Douglas Elliman in 2019 totaled $28.7 billion as the company continued its growth into new markets. The firm was responsible for 44,726 sales and rental transactions, and was ranked second among brokerages in the nation by sales volume.
“This was my inaugural year managing Elliman’s Hamptons division, and these agents could not have made me prouder,” said Todd Bourgard, Douglas Elliman’s senior executive regional manager of sales for the Hamptons. “Our team working on the South Fork has produced stellar results. We love what we do, and it’s clear that we’re very good at what we do. Elliman’s strong support of its people is always obvious to us, and we’re excited to move forward with another exemplary year of accomplishments in the Hamptons under our belts.”
