“By stating that ‘It’s Time for Elliman,’ we are reaching both existing and future clients with themes that duplicate the very human experiences and emotions we all share when buying or selling a home,” said Dottie Herman, the firm’s President and CEO. “Our message will resonate across all of our markets.”
