NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nest Seekers International, a savvy residential and commercial luxury real estate brokerage firm, today announced that Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes and Estates, a Long Island-based full-service real estate firm has joined its ranks. The boutique firm, founded in 2002 by Shawn Elliott, services Long Island’s most prestigious communities spread between areas of Old Westbury, Brookville, Oyster Bay Cove, Roslyn, Woodbury and more. Now, 15 years later, Elliott’s team, along with over 200 million dollars of listings and projects, is joining forces with Nest Seekers.
“I’m excited that my elite team is coming together with the Nest Seekers family,” said Elliott. “We can only do so much in Long Island when our clients are worldwide. Our business has expanded, and we needed to be part of an organization that has a global presence. Now, we can service our clients in New York City, the Hamptons, South Florida, the West Coast, Asia and Europe, and it’s amazing. Nest Seekers gives us greater resources and technology to operate and connect between these markets,” said Elliott.
Until now, Elliott and his team worked out of their flagship office in Brookville, Long Island. In his new role, Elliott will expand Nest Seekers’ Ultra-Luxury Division, overseeing high-end listings in multiple markets.
“The Gold Cost is a critical point between New York City and the Hamptons. It’s a missing piece that completes a regional picture for us.” said Eddie Shapiro, CEO of Nest Seekers.
“We plan to open more offices in the area. Smart, successful agents and firms have realized that they have to think like global fashion brands and investment banks. It’s not about being the biggest in one region anymore. Our message is that we have global brokers who serve local markets. Shawn and his team will do that with us,” he added.
Shapiro emphasizes the importance of seeking multi-faceted talent for the firm.
“Shawn understands the vision of our company. We aspire to on-board diverse,, like-minded individuals that understand marketing and branding, speak multiple languages and are licensed in several states, and Shawn fits the bill. We encourage our team to move between markets. That’s the future of the modern agent,” said Shapiro.
While Shawn operates primarily out of the East Coast, he currently serves at the Chief Marketing Director for 924 Bel Air Rd, the most expensive home in the U.S. listed for $250M. Shawn has appeared on CNBC’s “Secret Lives of the Super Rich,” CBS’s “Living Large,” NBC New York’s “Open House” and more. He is a fully licensed broker in New York, California and Florida.
Shawn’s son, Zach Elliott, has worked closely with his father for years and will lead business development and marketing efforts in 2018. As a seasoned agent as well as the founder of Drone Man Films; a cinematic marketing company specializing in luxury real estate, Zach plans to bring his technology expertise to the firm.
“My role is to engage and on-board a younger generation of real estate stars, and use cutting-edge technology such as drones and virtual reality to disrupt the marketplace,” said Zach.
