Sag Harbor resident and East End real estate agent Matthew Breitenbach will be leaving one top brokerage firm for another, as he makes the switch from Corcoran Group to Douglas Elliman. “With a client base nationally and globally, Elliman’s reach will help bring my business to the next level,” he said in a statement.

The 31-year-old started his real estate career with Allan Schneider Associates, now the Corcoran Group, and closed his first multi-million dollar deal not long after getting his real estate license, according to his profile on Corcoran.

“I think he wants to make a name for himself, which I think is great,” said top Corcoran broker and his mother, Susan Breitenbach. “He’s a great son and wonderful broker.”

The two worked together for several years—he assisted her in marketing more than $1 billion worth of real estate, according to Corcoran.

Mr. Breitenbach is well-versed in real estate, especially in the Hamptons—aside from his mother’s status in the industry, Mr. Breitenbach’s father, Stephen, is owner of Breitenbach Builders, a luxury custom building company on the East End.

And the younger Mr. Breitenbach’s work has not gone unnoticed—in 2007, the Wall Street Journal listed him as 15th in the U.S. for sales volume, and Newsday labeled him one of the top young real estate agents in New York.

At Elliman, he will help target luxury properties. “Working closely with private equity investors and sports and entertainment celebrities, Matt will be one of the only individuals out here to grow that business, thus elevating the Elliman brand,” Paul Brennan, Hamptons regional manager at Douglas Elliman, said in a statement.

A request for comment from Corcoran was not returned.
