East Coast powerhouse Douglas Elliman landed in Los Angeles with a bang in 2014 and quickly launched a bid to recruit as many top-producing agents as possible.

Now, industry observers can finally get a glimpse at the firm’s top Los Angeles earners, thanks to gongs given out at its annual awards ceremony Thursday.

As expected, Josh and Matt Altman of “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles” took home the top spot in the region, having scored the largest amount of gross commissions in 2015. The brothers joined Elliman’s Beverly Hills office from Hilton & Hyland early last year.

Connie Blankenship and Michelle Oliver, who jumped ship from Coldwell Banker, took home the second spot.

Other runners up included third place winner Tracy Tutor Maltas, who moved from the Agency, fourth place winner Juliette Höhnen, who was formerly with Hilton & Hyland, and fifth place winner James Crane, who previously worked with Keller Williams.

The firm itself closed $22 billion in total sales nationwide last year, a more than 20 percent increase from last year, representatives for the firm told The Real Deal.

The ceremony, dubbed the Ellies, was hosted at Radio City Music Hall in New York and included a performance by the Radio City Rockettes.
