Doug Bowen, who was CORE’s No. 1 townhouse broker in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill last year, has jumped to Douglas Elliman.

Bowen, along with business partner Paul Johansen, will work out of Elliman’s Offices On West 17th Street in Chelsea And Montague Street in Brooklyn, representatives for the brokerage told The Real Deal.

During Bowen’s nine years at CORE, he sold more than 70 townhouses. Last year, he and Johansen were the No. 1 townhouse brokers in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill and sold $66 million worth of real estate.

Before getting into real estate, Bowen worked as a master carpenter and movie set builder and worked on 50 films, including “Titanic.” He currently owns and manages five townhouses in Brooklyn.

“Doug is a class act, and we wish him all the best in his personal and professional endeavors,” CORE founder and CEO Shaun Osher said in a statement.
