Joanne is the founder of THE DOUGLAS TEAM.
"The Douglas Team is made up of powerful negotiators, who are all well regarded in the industry for their professionalism, market insights and impressive credentials," said Howard M. Lorber, Chairman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. "Joanne and her colleagues are a terrific asset to Elliman."
With a capacity for innovative thinking, branding, and marketing, coupled with her outstanding financial and investment skills, after selling the successful sporting accessory company, Renmor Sport, Joanne Douglas looked to her greatest passions, architecture, design, and, most especially, real estate. A market savvy and a top producing agent, she is often enlisted as a speaker and expert at top broker seminars sponsored by REBNY, relocation conferences, and corporate events. Joanne has guest lectured with Barbara Corcoran, star of Shark Tank, at New York University and Marymount College.
Joanne's dynamic team, includes her partner and sister Donna Renna, team members Barbara Levey, Rosemary Renna, her loyal, and longtime assistant, Leonard Cicio, and personal driver, Eduardo Lareche. Joanne specializes in the sales and marketing of co-ops and condos, and has successfully marketed smaller rental to condo conversions. She has calculated pricing (creating schedule A's) for residential conversions. Other noted accomplishments includes being the first broker in Manhattan to break the $10,000 per square foot pricing. At that time, the next highest sale was $8000 per square foot. Her sale blew open the pricing ceiling of high end condominiums.
"Joanne and Donna are a powerhouse of talent," says Dottie Herman, President and CEO of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. "These superstars have a loyal base of clients and a very strong referral business, which speaks to how respected and trusted they are as advisors to their customers."
Joanne is a partner in various real estate enterprises and her portfolio includes a partnership in apartment complexes as well as investments in vacation homes. "My entire life is centered on real estate, design, and architecture." Says Joanne. Along with her fiance, a high end builder, Joanne is just completing her own summer weekend home in the Village of Southampton, where she has had a hand in every aspect of layout and design.
