Lenz named PDE’s top broker in the nation for eighth time

Mar.March 15, 2012 06:00 PM

Dolly Lenz, Prudential Douglas Elliman’s doyenne of residential real estate, was named the number one residential broker in the U.S. at Prudential Real Estate Affiliates’ convention this week in Orlando, Florida.

For Lenz, who has sold an estimated $8.5 billion worth of real estate in her career, according to a statement, the prize is nothing new — this is the eighth time she has received this honor.

Prudential Real Estate Affiliates is a national network of real estate brokerages that includes 62,000 real estate agents and brokers of which Prudential Douglas Elliman is a part.

At the local awards for Douglas Elliman last month, Lenz was not presented with any awards, as per an agreement that she would bow out of the competition for top broker award after taking that title eight consecutive times. Instead, Joan Swift took Elliman’s top individual broker spot.

In The Real Deal’s ranking of top Manhattan agents last June, Lenz finished only fifth overall, with $200 million in listings.

Brown Harris Stevens’ Paula Del Nunzio, who had $358 million in listings, took the top spot.  — Guelda Voien
