therealdeal.com – Natalie Rakowski, a founding member of the residential brokerage CORE, has jumped to Douglas Elliman.
Rakowski began her career at Elliman in 1994 and then joined the team that launched CORE in 2005. She returned to Elliman on Tuesday with three team members — Stephen Gallagher, Kerry Elizabeth Lynn and Tucky Ridder, the brokerage confirmed.
In a statement, Rakowski cited Elliman’s global brand as a reason for her move.
Rakowski’s departure might end the close working relationship she’s had with CORE CEO Shaun Osher, who launched the brokerage with the Cayre family. In a 2011 blog post, Osher described Rakowski as a “power broker” and friend. “When I started Core in 2005, I was honored to have her by my side, and we’ve never looked back,” he wrote at the time.
