Douglas Elliman announced the winners of the 2024 Ellie Awards, which honor the firm’s top performing agents throughout the nation for 2023, last Thursday, March 14, and top performers from the Hamptons offices were among the honorees.

“In the face of financial and market headwinds across the industry, Douglas Elliman agents persevered and prevailed, all while demonstrating characteristic resolve, ingenuity and professionalism,” said Howard M.
