Dennis Colwell was personally recruited by Barbara Corcoran because of her “hunch” that he would be a successful agent. She was right, and he spent 12 years excelling as a residential sales broker at Corcoran where he was repeatedly ranked in the Top 2% of NRT sales producers nationwide, garnering a stellar track record of accomplishments including a loyal, high-profile clientele. Dennis went on to spend 3 years serving the Executive side of NRT where he was most recently Senior Managing Director for Citi Habitats’ West Village office, drawing on his own valuable lessons and proven track record to help build his agents’ success. Dennis grew up around architecture and naturally took to real estate, interpreting floorplans, honing his keen eye for interior design and spatial configuration. Throughout his career, his aesthetic vision helped buyers imagine what their dream home could look like, and allowed him to showcase sellers’ properties at their best potential to command the highest price. His job is multifaceted and rewarding. It first and foremost involves training and retaining talented, career-driven agents who are looking to build and expand their sales business; teaching them how to create a heavy referral-based business; and assisting them in growing their careers by coming up with creative new ways to maximize agent exposure in the New York City market. Dennis’ goal is to promote a professional, productive and focused environment where agents also have a sense of community, interact and work with each other, and have some fun along the way. “I have an absolute open door policy. I encourage coaching and mentoring, and take an active interest in helping every agent excel.” Known to intertwine a personal flare of sarcasm and humor to keep things lively, Dennis believes in working hard, and playing just as hard. Born and raised in Houston, Dennis was inspired by an entrepreneurial upbringing including parents who build custom homes in Texas. After earning a B.A. in Speech Communication from Texas A&M University, he worked in the technology field, which led him to New York in 2000 to work for ABC’s “Good Morning America,” where he was a two-time Daytime Emmy Award winner for his contributions to the show. Entertaining friends, luxury travel, enjoying an eclectic variety of music, food, wine and cars are among his many interests that he enjoys sharing with his husband, Josh.
