WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Douglas Elliman Real Estate announced that Louise Colonna and Paul Tollefson have joined the firm as Executive Managers of Sales in Westchester.
Colonna will lead the Scarsdale office, and Tollefson will head up the firm’s Chappaqua, Armonk and Pleasantville offices.
“We’re thrilled to have established such a strong leadership team in Westchester, and for Louise and Paul to be joining us,” said Dottie Herman, President & CEO of Douglas Elliman. “Their expertise and leadership skills will be vital as we continue to expand our business and reach in the region.”
“It is with great pleasure that I welcome Louise and Paul to our management team,” said Roberto Vannucchi, Executive Vice President, Connecticut. “They each bring over 30 years of valuable industry experience, and are well-respected and proven leaders. We are proud to have managers of their caliber on our team.”
In her role as Executive Manager of Sales of the Scarsdale office, Colonna will oversee the office’s 40-plus agents and day to day operations. With over 30 years of real estate experience, including 15 years in management, Colonna previously served as a Branch Manager for Coldwell Banker in White Plains.
“I am so happy to take on the challenges of this exciting new role at Douglas Elliman and to work with some of the best agents in the industry,” said Colonna.
Tollefson will serve as the Executive Manager of Sales of the Chappaqua, Armonk and Pleasantville offices and will oversee approximately 80 agents. Tollefson relocated to Northern Westchester last year from San Francisco, where he owned and operated a luxury boutique real estate agency which he later sold to Coldwell Banker -- an agency which maintained the highest sales volume per agent in San Francisco.
Most recently, Tollefson was a sales associate at Ginnel Real Estate in Bedford.
“I am looking forward to joining the hard-working and passionate individuals at Douglas Elliman,” said Tollefson. “Elliman is such a powerful brand and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
