    WEEKENDEDITION In a recent interview, Douglas Elliman head Dottie Herman told Crain’s that she isn’t seeing signs of a housing bubble. And when asked how longtime Elliman broker Leonard Steinberg’s departure for Urban Compass affected her, she added that she will always remember him as a good cook.

    “[The market] is strong, but you can’t borrow money like you could prerecession. You have to have skin in the game whether you’re a developer or a person buying an apartment. So people aren’t flipping like they were before,” Herman said when asked if she sensed a housing bubble building. [more]

    From the March issue: The New York City real estate community took notice when news broke in late January about MaryAnne Gilmartin’s expected promotion to CEO of Forest City Ratner.

    As early as February, Elliman CEO Dottie Herman had been mulling a decision to stop using “Prudential” in the firm’s name and leave the global real estate franchise, as The Real Deal reported. [more]

And while those numbers may not bode well for the market in the immediate-term, they leave open the possibility of a brighter 2013, Jonathan Miller, president of the real estate analytics firm Miller Samuel and author of Elliman’s market report, told The Real Deal.

But by 6 p.m., desks and computers were gone, 16 abstract canvasses by the artist Carrie Sunday hung on the walls and guests were arriving for a party honoring Sunday’s exhibit, “Study in Meditation,” which will be displayed in the office through the end of this month.

    Elliman CEO Dottie Herman was inspired to host the exhibition, she said, because “I like putting strong brands together. Carrie is just so talented, and I hope I’m part of her success.” [more]
