DELRAY BEACH, FL (November 10, 2016) – Douglas Elliman Florida has surpassed 900 agents with the acquisition of Delray’s Tauriello & Company Real Estate Inc., marking the firm’s 19th office and signaling its intent to expand into key Florida coastal markets. 

The acquisition strategically positions Douglas Elliman into the prime Delray Beach market which is acclaimed for its seaside charm and combination of trendy restaurants, galleries, boutiques and nightlife. It is quickly emerging as a popular luxury vacation home destination for those from the Northeast, as well as locals who enjoy its sophisticated, yet casual lifestyle.

Recognized as a fundamental brokerage in the Delray Beach community since 2000, Tauriello & Company Real Estate Inc., led by Sue Tauriello, will be absorbed into the daily operations of Douglas Elliman’s Florida business.

“Delray Beach has consistently shown rapid growth in luxury sales each quarter, resulting in correlating development across the region,” said Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman’s Florida brokerage. “Sue Tauriello and her incredible firm have been instrumental in the development of the bustling community of Delray Beach. The acquisition of her powerful team, coupled with the expertise and national network of Douglas Elliman, results in a driving force second to none. We look forward to working together with Sue to continue expanding our presence in Delray Beach and serving our loyal clientele with the strongest resources possible.” 

On the east side of the Atlantic Avenue Bridge on the Intracoastal, Douglas Elliman’s Delray Beach offices will be located at 900 East Atlantic Avenue. Warmly recognized as “Florida’s Village by the Sea,” Delray Beach is home to a picturesque and friendly atmosphere. The beachfront community - filled with luxury waterfront homes, country clubs and historically preserved areas - is now home to several new developments with more in the pipeline presenting an exceptional and well-timed opportunity for Douglas Elliman Florida.

"We are beyond pleased to have been chosen by Douglas Elliman to become part of their expansion in the South Florida marketplace,” said Sue Tauriello, CEO and Owner of Tauriello & Company Real Estate Inc. “This is a Company I have long admired and we are all very excited for our clientele to have access to Douglas Elliman's marketing and branding."

The new Delray Beach office will be spearheaded by award-winning industry leader and Managing Broker, Ingrid Carlos.

Ingrid currently manages the Boca Raton office for Douglas Elliman, and has previous experience in building one of the most successful real estate offices in South Florida. Ingrid’s leadership has been recognized across the real estate market, as she was inducted in the NRT President’s Council back in 2015 where she placed among the top 20% of NRT LLC Branch Managers in the nation.
