UPDATED, March 7, 1:50 p.m.: The Carroll Group was Douglas Elliman’s top-selling team in Florida for the fourth consecutive year, the brokerage announced late Tuesday.

Nationwide, Elliman closed $28.1 billion in sales in 2018, up 8 percent year-over-year. Despite the increase, the brokerage pocketed only $5.2 million in 2018, a quarter of the previous year’s net income.

In 2017, Elliman’s Florida arm closed $3.6 billion in sales volume. Last year, sales volume rose 30 percent to $4.7 billion.

In Florida, Chad Carroll’s group was followed by Chris Leavitt and Ashley McIntosh’s Leavitt McIntosh Team, Eloy Carmenate and Mick Duchon’s team, Nicholas Malinosky and Randy Ely’s group, and the Bill and Bryan Team, led by Bill Hernandez and Bryan Sereny. The Alexander Team, led by brothers Oren and Tal Alexander, was No. 6.

Elliman’s top 10 agents, ranked by gross commission income in 2018, were led by Wellington agent Martha Jolicoeur, Gary Pohrer, Maria Mendelsohn, Paul Stuart Fishman and Brett Harris.

Some of the brokerage’s top deals in Florida included the nearly $22 million sale of a waterfront mansion on Pine Tree Drive in Miami Beach to DJ Khaled. Carmenate and Duchon were the listing agents. Elliman also brokered both sides of the $26 million sale of a penthouse at 321 Ocean in May. Hernandez and Sereny represented the seller, Russian venture capitalist Boris Jordan. Carmenate and Duchon brought the buyer, AQR Capital Management co-founder Cliff Asness.

This story has been updated to include Elliman’s total sales volume in Florida in 2018.
