Douglas Elliman Pushes Into Connecticut Residential Market

It's leasing a high-profile Greenwich office and recruiting from competitors

Douglas Elliman Real Estate is trying to muscle its way into the Connecticut residential brokerage market by opening a high-profile office in Greenwich and recruiting big-name producers from competitors.

The firm, which has been on a national expansion binge in the past three years, has leased a 5,000-square-foot office with 50 desks across from Greenwich Town Hall. It also has recruited more than 30 brokers, including a four-person team from Sotheby's International Realty named the Fieldstone Group, which last year sold properties totaling more than $100 million.

Howard Lorber, chairman of Douglas Elliman, says the affluent Greenwich market is an obvious target for his firm, which also has opened offices in south Florida, Aspen and Los Angeles. "Greenwich is one of those high-end markets where people travel," he said. "It's all the same customer."

The opening comes as the Greenwich residential sales market continues to recover from the downturn. It's not as strong as the New York market, especially in the $4 million-to-$8 million range, brokers say. But the market for properties for $3 million and less is active, brokers say.

According to Sotheby's, there have been 176 closings below $3 million so far this year, compared with 134 during the same time in 2014. The median sales price in 2014 was $1.84 million, according to Douglas Elliman.

But the Greenwich brokerage market also has produced stiff competition among firms lately. There have been several new entrants to the market and some brokerages have consolidated. A few firms that have tried to make it in the region have closed their doors, according to David Haffenreffer, Houlihan Lawrence's branch manager in Greenwich.

"I don't think putting a flag down in Greenwich will guarantee success," he said. "It's a matter of understanding the marketplace and having a company that can help drive results."

Mr. Lorber and Dottie Herman, Douglas Elliman's chief executive, have been driving results higher ever since their improbable acquisition of the storied New York firm in 2003. Before they took over, Douglas Elliman had gone through a series of owners stretching back to its founding in 1911.

Mr. Lorber and Ms. Herman came into the picture when they co-owned a Long Island brokerage named Prudential Long Island Realty, a franchisee of Prudential Financial Inc.'s real-estate business. Interested in expanding, they set their sights on Douglas Elliman, which at the time was part of a real-estate empire controlled by New York mogul Andrew Farkus.

In an interview last week, Mr. Lorber recalled that he and Ms. Herman made their move after he figured out that Mr. Farkus was planning to sell the company to someone else. Fortunately for them, that deal was facing antitrust issues.

"We didn't have antitrust issues," Mr. Lorber said. "So I said, 'Look, whatever deal you made with them, I'll buy it from you for the same price.' "

Mr. Lorber and Ms. Herman wanted to keep expanding their business but for years ran into problems because of their franchise agreement with Prudential. Many of the areas they wanted to add offices in already had franchisees, he said. "They wouldn't let us expand where we wanted to expand," he said.

Their franchise agreement with Prudential ended in 2012. Since then Douglas Elliman has been steadily adding offices and boosting sales.

The firm currently has 5,500 brokers in the U.S., and last year sold real estate worth $18 billion while expanding its reach globally by forming an alliance with Knight Frank Residential of London.

Mr. Lorber said the timing of the Greenwich opening depended in large part on finding the right people. Last year, the firm hired Roberto Vannucchi, formerly a Sotheby's director of sales.

Mr. Vannucchi has been recruiting heavily in the region. Most recently he hired the Fieldstone Group, which has worked on such deals as last year's sale by film director Ron Howard of his home in Armonk, N.Y., for $27.5 million.

Robin Kencel, one of the Fieldstone members, said the team has more than $75 million in listings and is moving partly because of Douglas Elliman's strength in the New York market, a "critical feeder" to Greenwich. She said they also liked the firm's willingness to "try different avenues" to sell property, which is especially important with homes that don't sell quickly and "need a new approach."

The other members of the team are Lyn Stevens, Beverley Toepkeand Scott Elwell. Douglas Elliman "is going to shake things up," Ms. Kencel said.

Mr. Lorber said that Douglas Elliman is still in expansion mode. "We'll probably add another Connecticut office and probably a couple more in California," he said. "Maybe we'll go to a couple of other places."

Critical Review of Old Greenwich Article in the New York Times

If you haven't read the New York Times article on Old Greenwich, you should (HERE), its worthy of a read. I give the article a solid B. I'm pretty critical when it comes to articles about Greenwich (including Cos Cob, Riverside, Old Greenwich and every other community), especially if they touch upon real estate.

Old Greenwich, Conn. Town

Since I'm a bit dorky, I'll just outline my 2 main criticisms in bullet points:

1) "The housing market is just now emerging from a nearly two-year slump induced by Hurricane Sandy." - This is the biggest concern I have about this article and the first red flag that went up in my head. Anyone that has been working on real estate in Greenwich for more than the past 4 years, understands that Old Greenwich (macro level) never went into a "slump" from Sandy or even from the bubble bursting (relative to the rest of town). Parts of Old Greenwich are now hotter than they have ever been, while areas of back country Greenwich are nowhere near their peak (adjusted for inflation). Yes, Sandy affected many homes that were under the new FEMA flood zone and slowed down some waterfront interest, but it did not put Old Greenwich into a slump. Heck, it helped houses that were just outside of the flood zone. For example, I sold an Old Greenwich house (central, south of town, just outside flood zone) for $2.121m in May 2013 that my clients had bought for $1.743m in August 2010. They didn't do any work to said house.  Yes, Hurricane Sandy caused all sorts of issues for waterfront and low lying houses in Old Greenwich, Riverside, Belle Haven, Byram, etc..., but no, it did not cause a "two-year slump."

2) North Mianus - Speaking about "slumps," the author really didn't explain the difference between southern Old Greenwich/Riverside and northern, affectionately referred to as North Mianus.  This area has seen a huge uptick over the past couple years and is one of my all-time favorite stories in Greenwich. As all Old Greenwich and Riverside residents know, there is a big difference in real estate north and south of the Post Road and Interstate 95 border. It has always been desirable to be closer to the water and therefore more expensive. In addition, as we have seen over the past 15 or so years, it has been more desirable to live close to town and the train, so that has helped spur the southern real estate growth even more. Now one area of discussion that is commonly overlooked, is not only the location differences between the two areas (north and south of Post Road), but the history of how they were created and defined.  North Mianus (northern Riverside and Old Greenwich for this discussion) was almost largely (for this discussion) built in the early 1950s after World War 2. Nimitz Place, Marshall Street, Hoover Road, you get the point. While southern Old Greenwich is much older and has a little more organic growth pattern. The 1950s brought lots of smaller cape and split level homes, which are not necessarily in vogue right now and can be very hard to convert to modern standards and demands.

This existing supply level of North Mianus (Northern Riverside and Old Greenwich) split level homes had created a bit of a ceiling in values, until the land value tipped the scales, which is why we started to see a serious pop in construction and sales starting 2 or so years ago. You see, for a long time houses in North Mianus had a hard time breaking the $1m price point. Its a fantastic place to live with great families and tons of houses/friends for kids to visit, though it was considered by some to be a bit dated as a whole. That was until the prices in lower Old Greenwich and Riverside came up so much. With the flood of buyers over the past 15 or so years looking for more of a community, close to water/town/train, we have seen a dramatic uptick in values in southern Riverside and Old Greenwich, pricing out many that started to move north to North Mianus. Eventually this pushed values and demand high enough that it made sense to tear down homes or blow out existing ones. Developers and buyers with sizable pocket books started realizing that this area of Greenwich is a fantastic place to invest in. It is still very close to downtown Old Greenwich, Binney Park, Old Greenwich and Riverside train stations and Tod's Point (Greenwich Point Park), while also providing a super family friendly tight nit environment. Kids everywhere. If you move there, you better buy lots of candy for Halloween.

*******************

Back to the original article and my critiques -  I understand that the writer has a limited number of words to use (unlike us bloggers that can go on and on and on - god bless SEO) and needs to simplify things. I also understand that the author is focusing on much more than just real estate, while I have blinders on and spend 95% of my time thinking about what houses are worth what in Greenwich. I did end up giving him a B, which is much better than passing grade in my book and am always excited when any national newspapers give attention to any Greenwich neighborhood or community. Maybe they could come back and write about the fascinating history in North Mianus!

        Horse feathers! Forget the real estate angle. Has the writer ever taken in the Old Greenwich art show? Or how about the Christmas celebration with a rock band in one garage, the best chili ever on Sound Beach, handouts from Garden Caterers, carriage rides and more? Or been a member of the Old Greenwich Merchants Association? Or enjoyed hoops, soccer, an antique show, or expo at the Civic Center? Old Greenwich is a crown jewel.
