Real estate is a profession that may seem hard to break into, but seven Douglas Elliman Long Island agents have found a way to make a splash early in their careers and they were recently recognized for their achievements by the Long Island Board of Realtors, Inc. (LIBOR) at the Young Professional Network (YPN)’s 8th annual “20 Under 40 Rising Stars in Real Estate” ceremony.
YPN is a division of LIBOR that helps young real estate professionals come together to take part in their community while learning about the latest real estate trends, attending conferences and engaging in networking opportunities. Members can seek mentoring connections and develop a sense of pride and camaraderie with each other while pursuing active leadership roles at the local, state and national levels.
“Not only are we at Douglas Elliman so proud of our Rising Stars, we are also actively engaged and invested in providing them with all the tools they need to continue to grow their businesses with success.”
– Ann Conroy, President Douglas Elliman Long Island
Chosen for their excellence in the areas of sales, leadership and community involvement, these young professionals are now lifetime inductees of the LIBOR YPN Top 20 Under 40.
Among those honored included: Nikki Taylor Friedman (who was also named Director of LIBOR’s Young Professionals Network), Edward Schmidt of our Huntington office, Marco Gervasi of our Massapequa office, Tamanna Jaggi of our Syosset office, Paige Chirco of our Franklin Square office, David Barriga of our Bayside office and George Panogapoulos of our Manhasset office.
“Not only are we at Douglas Elliman so proud of our Rising Stars, we are also actively engaged and invested in providing them with all the tools they need to continue to grow their businesses with success,” says Ann Conroy, President of DE’s Long Island Division. “Personally, I’m so happy to know these young entrepreneurs, whose refreshing perspective, energy, passion and tenacity inspires me. Congratulations to all and the future of our industry. We all are in very good hands!”
