Broker Jacky Teplitzky says she is upset about not receiving a top sales person award today at the annual Prudential Douglas Elliman awards. Dolly Lenz was named the top individual seller.

Teplitzky, an executive vice president at Elliman, said that unlike in years past, the brokerage did not hand out a single award for the top seller.

“I feel the rules were changed in the middle of the game,” Teplitzky said.

When asked whether she planned to leave Elliman, Teplitzky said she wouldn’t comment.

An Elliman spokeswoman, Barbara Wagner, did not indicate why an overall award for the top broker was not given this year.

Teplitzky won the top team category by gross commission income, or GCI. She said she is proud of her and her teams’ achievement, but said that rather than separate brokers into two award categories — groups and individuals — she should have been made overall “No. 1, period.”

“I think this is a great company. This is the largest company. This is a very powerful company. But you have to fight for what is right,” she said.

Lenz, an Elliman vice chairman, told The Real Deal yesterday that when it comes to individual sales performance, just like every year “there’s nobody close” to her in 2007.

Regarding Teplitzky, Lenz added: “Jackie Teplitzky is not even in the same category.”
