From the New York website: It’s typically said that switching firms coincides with a dip in business. Not so for Lauren Muss.

Muss, a 14-year veteran of the Corcoran Group agent who jumped to Douglas Elliman in the fall of 2014, topped the leaderboard at this year’s Elliman awards with more commissions than any other single agent at the firm in 2016.

Muss beat out competitors Kirk Rundhaug and Joan Swift to take home top honors at the Ellies, the Elliman annual awards which were hosted at Radio City Music Hall Thursday night. 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.

In Brooklyn, the top individual agent was Myrel Glick of the Brooklyn Heights office, while the Peters-O’Brien team out of Williamsburg was named the top Brooklyn team.

In South Florida, the top team was the Carroll Group, led by former “Million Dollar Listing” star Chad Carroll, while the top individual was Maria Mendelsohn, who is based in Wellington.

In California, “Million Dollar Listing” stars Josh and Matt Altman took home the top spot.

Out east, the top individual prize for the Hamptons went to Michaela Keszler from the Southampton office, while the top team was led by Enzo Morabito in Bridgehampton.

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. In New York City, Elliman closed 6,812 sales worth $14 billion in New York last year, compared to 7,119 deals worth $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.
