“Million Dollar Listing” stars Josh and Matt Altman took home the top California spot at this year’s Douglas Elliman awards, hosted at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall Thursday night.

The Altmans were the first household names to join Elliman on the West Coast. They jumped to the firm from Hilton & Hyland in 2015, two years after the company’s launch in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, New York’s Lauren Muss, a 14-year veteran of the Corcoran Group agent who jumped to Elliman in the fall of 2014, topped the leaderboard in the company’s hometown with more commissions than any other single agent in 2016.

Muss beat out competitors Kirk Rundhaug and Joan Swift to take home top honors. Rundhaug and Swift came in second and third place in the individual agent category, respectively.

The Eklund/Gomes Team, led by “Million Dollar Listing New York” star Fredrik Eklund and his partner John Gomes, took the top spot for the fourth consecutive year. The Holly Parker team and the the Raphael De Niro team came in at second and third, respectively.

The awards are based on gross commissions.

Overall, Elliman said it did $24.6 billion in total sales volume nationwide in 2016, a 10 percent increase from 2015. Approximately $14 billion of that figure was done in New York, compared to $12.7 billion in 2015. Its overall revenue jumped 6 percent to $675.3 million.

The ceremony once again included a performance by the Radio City Rockettes.
