Douglas Elliman

Scott Durkin has been an industry leader for nearly three decades and is a driving force behind the globally recognized brokerage’s ranking as one of the largest independent residential real estate firms. In 2023, Durkin undertook major initiatives to strengthen the brand, culture, technology and most importantly, the way Elliman agents conduct their business.

Under Durkin’s leadership, the company launched many new ventures, such as a new on/offboarding system, a business management tool for marketing with StudioPro Video capability, and an automated payment system with numerous security enhancements. The company also expanded last year to Metro D.C.; Weston, Florida; Wellesley, Massachusetts; and Sarasota, Florida, as well as opened a second New Jersey office in Fair Haven.

In 2023, Durkin also launched the Agents of Change Series, which is a series of conversations designed to focus on some of today’s most pressing social challenges while spotlighting the Elliman agents who are working to bring change to our industry and society at large.

According to Durkin, what he loves about his work is “being able to collaborate with regional leadership and our top agents around the world.”

“Douglas Elliman is a company built on culture, connectivity and entrepreneurialism. It is steeped in 110-year history of innovation, entrepreneurship and the power of yes, where our agent’s ideas are met with open minds and unwavering support which helps them provide a level of service that is unparalleled in the industry,” says Durkin. “We are also bound by a genuine sense of friendship and mutual respect that inspire people at all levels and areas of the business to come together and reach new levels of success.”
