Warburg Realty, one of Manhattan’s leading luxury residential real estate firms, is pleased to announce Doug Williford is now part of the brokerage team at 100 Hudson Street, the firm’s Tribeca office. Mr. Williford joined Warburg two years ago, supporting the business initiatives of two of its top executives, Frederick W. Peters and Jane Bayard. During this time, he began to develop his own industry relationships, and has successfully transitioned this opportunity into his current position as a full-time agent.
“Doug Williford is one of the smartest, most congenial and multitalented people who has ever worked assisting me and Jane Bayard. His people sense is pitch perfect, his organizational skills are impeccable, and everyone likes him. I have no doubt that he will be enormously successful as he ramps up his business as an agent. We are sad to lose him from the E-suite but we are delighted to see him turn into a moneymaker for the firm.” said Mr. Peters, president of Warburg Realty.
Mr. Williford has been quickly making a name for himself in the industry. In his first year alone, he closed deals totaling over five million dollars for apartments and townhouses in Manhattan and Brooklyn. In 2013, he continues to partner with Warburg executives, and has completed more than $15 million worth of residential real estate transactions in just the past few months.
Prior to joining Warburg, Mr. Williford spent a decade working as an actor, who was featured in film, television and commercial projects. He holds a BBA in Marketing from Mercer University.
All of Warburg’s agents benefit from the firm’s ongoing branding efforts and role as a thought leader through the integration of social media to market real estate. As the first firm to implement an iPhone app, through the widely popular AroundMe platform, it regularly incorporates Facebook, Twitter and blogging as part of its daily business. The brokerage has also garnered national notoriety for its starring role on the hit HGTV show, Selling New York, where the firm’s agents and exclusive listings are regularly featured in the storylines.
