Other Top 5 Teams by GCI in the Hamptons included The Atlantic Team (No. 2), The Avigdor/Penkova Team (No. 3), The Nigro Team (No. 4) and The Aarons/Goodstein Team (No. 5).

The Pinnacle Club Award winners, presented to agents and teams who made more than $1 million in 2018, included David Donohue, The Avigdor/Penkova Team, Erica Grossman, The Enzo Morabito Team and The Atlantic Team.

“Our wonderfully talented agents across the nation gave a very impressive performance this year, backed by a tremendous amount of dedication and passion for their work,” said Howard M. Lorber, the chairman of Douglas Elliman Realty, in a statement. “We remain committed to providing all of our agents with the best in class technology, marketing and public relations to help them reach even greater heights in 2019, and we look forward to another triumphant year.”

Nationwide sales for Douglas Elliman in 2018 totaled $28.1 billion—an eight percent increase from 2017—according to the firm, which reports being responsible for 44,131 sales and rental transactions in the past year, and was ranked the number three brokerage in the nation by sales volume.

“Congratulations to these agents, whose hard work has earned them this incredible distinction,” said Carl Benincasa, Douglas Elliman’s regional vice president of sales for the Hamptons. “I’m so proud of our entire team on the East End, which continues to grow and succeed, thanks to Douglas Elliman’s deep commitment to its people. Elliman’s superior level of thought leadership and outstanding commitment to agent, administrative and organizational support has helped us to gain market share and finish another stellar year here in the Hamptons.”
