  • Herman bought Douglas Elliman about 14 years ago when she realized there wasn't a strong connection between real estate in the Hamptons and buyers in Manhattan.
  • By expanding her offices where her clients want to buy, she's been able to keep a strong foothold in the luxury market.

DottieIn this segment of Unlisted, Inman publisher Brad Inman interviews Long Island native Dottie Herman.
