Douglas Elliman Recognized As Top Real Estate Brokerage

Leading a revolution in the South Florida real estate industry on the principles of integrity, professionalism, honesty and diligence, Douglas Elliman Real Estate was recently recognized as the leading brokerage in Wellington, underscoring its authority in the equestrian capital of the world.

Only seven months after the grand opening of the firm’s Wellington office at the Palm Beach Polo & Country Club, located at 11199 Polo Club Drive in Wellington, the brokerage has catapulted to the top. The firm’s leaders credit that status to skillful recruiting, notable transactions and tactical execution at the Winter Equestrian Festival.

“Our rapid growth in Wellington epitomizes the swift progression and overall evolution of our Florida brokerage,” said Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman’s Florida brokerage. “Wellington is a prime location in the global real estate landscape, and the expertise of regional Managing Broker Don Langdon and his talented team have been instrumental to its success.”

Spearhead by Langdon, the Wellington office has taken control of market share in the region, leading with 15.9 percent market share and $90 million in total volume. Focused on the common thread that ties a substantial amount of affluent clientele together, Douglas Elliman has a long history of corporate affiliation with the equestrian community, including longstanding sponsorships of the Hampton Classic, the Winter Equestrian Festival and the American Gold Cup.

The new office at Palm Beach Polo has allowed the company to provide continued personalized attention to existing equestrian clients while capitalizing on the equestrian relations that the firm has access to through the Douglas Elliman Fine Homes/Knight Frank Residential network.

“Our office is embedded in the equestrian community and has exclusive access to the Palm Beach Polo & Country Club,” Langdon said. “Our ideal location, coupled with the most advanced tools supplied to our talented agents, allows our team to better serve our clients and continuously prosper. I’m extremely proud of this team and look forward to contributing to the further growth of the Florida brokerage.”

The Florida Brokerage of Douglas Elliman has welcomed more new agents in the past year than any other firm in South Florida, growing to more than 700 agents across its continued expansion throughout Palm Beach, Wellington, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, the Miami Design District, Aventura, Miami Beach, Coconut Grove and Brickell. Douglas Elliman is recognized as the No. 1 brokerage in Wellington and Miami Beach, and is among the top four brokerages nationwide.

Established in 1911, Douglas Elliman Real Estate has more than 6,000 agents. The company operates 85 offices in the New York City metropolitan area, South Florida, Aspen and Beverly Hills.
