Hospitality industry veteran brings extensive knowledge and experience to new residential real estate role
Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the largest brokerage in the New York Metropolitan area and the second largest independent residential real estate brokerage in the United States by sales volume, is pleased to announce that luxury hospitality executive, David Eskander, has joined the firm’s prestigious Noble Black Team.
Eskander’s transition into real estate follows a decade-long career in the hospitality industry where he held several executive business development roles for some of the most distinguished luxury hotel companies including The Leading Hotels of the World, WorldHotels and Small Luxury Hotels of the World, among others. With experience spearheading global and domestic development efforts for major hospitality brands, he is well versed in complex negotiations, real estate cycles and marketing and design trends. Eskander’s global business acumen and luxury hospitality background make him an exceptional partner for buyers and sellers who will benefit from his client-focused business philosophy and first-class service approach.
Led by one of New York City’s premier brokers, Noble Black, the team is consistently ranked as a top producing team in Manhattan. In 2019, The Noble Black Team was Douglas Elliman’s #3 team in Manhattan by Gross Commission Income in addition to the firm’s #1 top new development team.
“With David’s background in luxury sales and exceptional customer service, he was a natural fit for our team,” said Black.
“I’m thrilled to join Noble and his remarkable team at Douglas Elliman as I embark on this next chapter of my career,” said Eskander. “With so many complementary aspects between the two industries, the shift from the hospitality world to real estate feels like a natural progression. I look forward to utilizing the unique skills and service-oriented approach I’ve honed over the past decade to bring value to this team and help my clients find their dream homes.”
Residence 4A of the historic Cast Iron House in Tribeca is Eskander’s first listing with Douglas Elliman for which he joins fellow agents from the Noble Black Team to represent the impressive 3,197 square-foot four-bedroom, three-bathroom corner duplex. Originally built in 1881 and revitalized by the Pritzker Prize award-winning architect, Shigeru Ban, the boutique condominium at 67 Franklin Street boasts a classic 19th-century cast-iron façade that works in tandem with modern interiors and a suite of amenities to create the perfect home.
