NYC Brokerage Firm Triplemint Expands to Westchester County
John Jordan | February 3, 2021
NEW YORK—New York City-based residential brokerage firm Triplemint reported on Feb. 3 it had expanded its operations to Westchester County with the defection of a number of Douglas Elliman agents.
Triplemint reported that the Berkowitz Marrone Team led by Owen Berkowitz and Carol Marrone, who were the founding members of Douglas Elliman Westchester, have joined the firm. The team brings nearly six decades of collective experience in the Westchester region to the brokerage firm that was founded in 2013 by Yale classmates David Walker and Philip Lang.
Berkowitz and Marrone received the Pinnacle Award, given to Elliman’s top 2% of agents company-wide, each year since 2016. In 2020, the team closed $60 million in sales volume and were recognized on the Real Trends’ “The Thousand list.”
Rounding out the Berkowitz-Marrone Team that is now affiliated with Triplemint are: Susan Reddy, Michael Taraboulos and Matthew Marrone, who all left Douglas Elliman to join Triplemint.
A Triplemint spokesperson said a Westchester office location has not been established as yet.
“Owen and I are so grateful for the success we saw during our time at Elliman,” Marrone said. “We’re so excited to take the next step, leading the team and shaping Triplemint from River to Sound. Westchester is our home, and we can’t wait to create a better real estate experience for our neighbors.”
“This move speaks to our entrepreneurial spirit,” added Berkowitz. “Westchester has begun to realize a new generation and energy, so joining the Triplemint team presents us with a unique opportunity to marry exceptional data analytics with a robust and nimble marketing platform, which supports our team’s hyper-focused approach to stay ahead of the curve.”
Westchester marks Triplemint’s third expansion. The firm set up operations in the New Jersey market in the summer of 2019 and in the Hamptons in the summer of 2020.
“Since the start, Triplemint’s expansion strategy has been about quality over quantity, launching with a people-first focus, rather than market-first,” said David Walker, co-founder and CEO of Triplemint. “Westchester has always been a key market for us, but we undoubtedly found the right launch partners in The Berkowitz Marrone Team. We can’t wait to grow side by side with such wonderful human beings and the region’s utmost real estate professionals.”
