Rocky Hill-based Prudential Connecticut Realty and Manhattan real estate firm Douglas Elliman Realty, as well as Prudential affiliates in New Jersey, Westchester and the Hamptons, have combined marketing capabilities to create the New York Luxury Network, a targeted marketing effort designed to reach New York’s active luxury buyers.

Helie, president and chief operating officer of Prudential Connecticut Realty, in a prepared statement. “By combining forces with tri-state Prudential affiliates and drawing on the power of The New York Times, we will be able to provide incomparable access to New York’s active luxury buyers.”
