Douglas EllimanDouglas Elliman hosted approximately 70 real estate professionals for its first free continuing education class in the Hamptons on Tuesday, June 25, at 230 Elm Street in Southampton.

Participants included agents from a variety of East End brokerages. The class topic was “Storm Front: Resiliency to Forces of Nature,” led by attorney Andrew Lieb of the Lieb School. The large turnout showed that the free classes, which also provide agents the opportunity to earn credits toward their licenses, are vital to the area, according to local experts.

“We are extremely proud to offer this level of service not only to our Elliman agents, but to the broader real estate community in the Hamptons,” said Ann Conroy, president of Douglas Elliman’s Long Island Division. “Judging from the turnout, there is a real need for this type of program here, and we will continue to offer these free classes throughout the year.”

“It was exciting to see this event generate so much interest among the local real estate community. Douglas Elliman is committed to raising the standard of excellence across our industry, regardless of brokerage affiliation and I anticipate even more success with future free classes in the Hamptons,” said Paul Brennan, manager of Douglas Elliman’s Bridgehampton Office.

The event was sponsored by Douglas Elliman Real Estate, DE Capital Mortgage and DE Title Services. For additional information, visit
