Aug.August 31, 2011 03:08 PM

Prudential Douglas Elliman is expanding its Long Island division with the opening of an office in Garden City, the residential real estate brokerage announced today. The new premises, the company’s 40th on Long Island, will be located at 753 Franklin Avenue, at the corner of Stewart Avenue. Elliman has more than 60 offices in the New York City, Long Island and the Hamptons.

The office will be operated under the leadership of real estate veterans Ed D’Ambrosio and Helena Veloso, both vice presidents at Elliman and part of the strategic management team of Long Island.

“Garden City is a sought-after town to live in, known for its gorgeous residential neighborhoods… and its great proximity to five LIRR stations and New York City,” said Dottie Herman, president and CEO of Elliman. “This new office is a great opportunity for us to solidify our presence in a strong market place and I expect our agents to be very successful there.”

Herman actually began her career on Long Island, purchasing Prudential Long Island Realty in 1989. After turning the company into the powerhouse brokerage operating on Long Island and in the Hamptons, she purchased Douglas Elliman, Manhattan’s largest and most prestigious brokerage firm, with her partner Howard Lorber in 2003, transforming the company into what it is today. — Katherine Clarke
