Kevin Ahearn, CEO Boston Division
Alexandra Foster, Senior Marketing Director: New Development
Douglas Elliman knows how to make agents into super agents. Comprising a team of power players from a diverse array of professional backgrounds, the firm caters to local and national developers, clients in key luxury markets and international clients, thanks to Elliman’s partnership with Knight Frank.
Take Kevin Ahearn, CEO of Elliman’s Boston division, for example: A graduate of Boston College, Ahearn became a silver medalist on the United States National Men’s Hockey Team in the 1972 Winter Olympics. Since his hockey career, he has dominated a long-standing 40-plus-year real estate career, specializing in new development, launching over 30 residential projects in Boston and eventually selling his firm, Otis & Ahearn, to Douglas Elliman in 2018.
Lisa Rainis, executive manager of sales, had a successful career in the luxury retail sector with Saks Fifth Avenue before being recruited by Ahearn in 2013. She brings with her an impeccable understanding of Douglas Elliman’s brand and clientele. As she notes, “I believe in building a strong support team and empowering them to make independent decisions in the best interest of our agents.” Approachability, loyalty and positivity hold true for her and Elliman’s success.
Rounding out the executive team is Alexandra Foster, who became senior marketing director for new development after a far-ranging executive career working in Boston and Europe for the head office of renowned brands such as PUMA International, Liberty of London and Louis Vuitton UK. Foster’s transition to real estate is a true nexus that brings together her luxury market experience, degree in interior design and lifelong love of the historic cityscape of Boston.
Ever devoted to Boston’s new development and entrepreneurial spirit, Douglas Elliman Development Marketing (DEDM) is the exclusive marketing and sales agent for The Parker, a 22-story luxury condominium building.
