NEW YORK CITY—Douglas Elliman Real Estate is growing its real estate services with the addition of an expanded commercial division, Douglas Elliman Commercial, by joining forces with Williamson, Picket, Gross, Inc., another commercial brokerage. The newly formed division will be led by Williamson, Picket, Gross, Inc. founder Jim Gross, his son and partner Peter Gross, and Douglas Elliman’s Louis Puopolo. The new division will service New York City, South Florida and Long Island. The division also will include the Elliman firm’s Nickolai Team, led by Irene Nickolai.

“Douglas Elliman is best known for being New York’s largest residential brokerage with a growing national presence, but we’ve been ranked among the best brokerages in the commercial realm for years,” says Howard M. Lorber, chairman of Douglas Elliman.  “This is the right time to increase our scope with this division, as we continue to expand our full-service real estate capabilities in the national arena.”
