Former Christie’s executive Rick Moeser joins Douglas Elliman
Moeser has 30 years of luxury residential experience and most recently served as Executive Director at Christie’s International Real Estate for approximately 17 years.
Former Christie’s International Real Estate director Rick Moeser has joined Douglas Elliman Realty as CEO of Business Development, Inman reported.
Moeser, who has over 30 years of experience in luxury residential real estate, will lead Douglas Elliman in market expansion, recruitment and new business development in his new role as he joins the team of management of the brokerage.
“Rick has earned an excellent reputation as a builder of global affiliate networks that generate tens of billions of dollars in annual sales,” Howard M. Lorber, executive chairman of Douglas Elliman, said in a statement. “Douglas Elliman is now poised to achieve great things through his leadership and expertise. »
Most recently, Moeser served as executive director of Christie for approximately 17 years. Prior to that, he served as Senior Vice President at Sotheby’s International Realty for over a decade.
“The arrival of a leader of Rick’s caliber clearly demonstrates our commitment to thoughtful growth and strategic expansion,” Douglas Elliman CEO Scott Durkin said in a statement. “There is no better person – at no better time – to help this company deliver on this commitment.”
During his long career, Moeser created and helped manage a network of over 100 real estate affiliates around the world, and also personally managed 40 real estate companies at Christie’s. A press representative for Douglas Elliman told Inman that Moeser is currently considering the Arizona, Nashville and Chicago markets as key areas for expansion for the brokerage in the near future.
“Few companies with the history and stature of Douglas Elliman have shown such boldness and ambition in the face of the future,” Moeser said in a statement. “I am thrilled and proud to join Elliman and his age-old commitment to reinventing the real estate industry.”
Moeser joins Douglas Elliman as the company seeks to strategically expand its footprint in the market, most recently branching out to Las Vegas, New Canaan and Nantucket over the past two months. In the brokerage’s first-quarter 2022 earnings report released in early May, Douglas Elliman reported a 13.2% year-over-year revenue increase to $308.9 million.
