Douglas Elliman President and Chief Operating Officer Scott Durkin has been an industry leader for nearly three decades and is a driving force behind the globally recognized brokerage’s ranking as the second largest independent residential real estate firm in the United States.

Scott’s meteoric rise at the New York City based firm began when he was hired as Executive Vice President in January 2016 as part of the company’s effort to grow a nationwide presence. He was quickly promoted to Chief Operating Officer in October 2016 and President in December 2017.

From the outset, Scott has helped oversee expansion efforts in New York, South Florida, California, Massachusetts and Texas, as well as restructured operations in Westchester, Connecticut and the Hamptons. He has also led the development of a more streamlined and strategic operations team, bringing together top-tier talent across a range of disciplines including public relations, marketing and technology.

Previously, Scott enjoyed a 26-year tenure at The Corcoran Group, where he was a protégé of Barbara Corcoran. He quickly earned a number of esteemed titles, including Chief Operating Officer and Senior Managing Director of the Chelsea Flatiron office, which ranked among the company’s top 10 locations nationwide during his 11 years of leadership. Scott’s involvement in several key milestones for The Corcoran Group, from selling the business to NRT/Realogy to acquiring subsequent brokerages in New York and Florida, solidified his reputation as a formidable leader in the real estate industry—an impressive leap from his modest start as a sales agent.

An avid equestrian, Scott owns five Warmblood horses and spends much of his free time riding, and is a regular amateur competitor in the world of dressage. Scott is a board member of Have a Heart Animal Welfare Fund as well as a member of the United States Dressage Federation and the United States Equestrian Federation.
