Jessica Peters

Jessica Peters’ success at Douglas Elliman has rivaled that of the Brooklyn market, and that has been by design. In 2008, Jessica moved to Douglas Elliman’s Williamsburg office, sensing a great change was coming to greater Brooklyn. Fourteen years later, Jessica has established herself as one of Brooklyn’s most accomplished residential real estate brokers, especially in New Development and townhouse restoration.

Jessica is among one of the highest achieving agents in the nation, having collectively sold over $1 billion of closed real estate deals in Brooklyn to date. She is excited to further expand Douglas Elliman’s footprint in Brooklyn, as she and her talented associates work with some of the most exciting real estate New York City has to offer.

Inspired to enter real estate by her family in the business, Jessica is at the top of her game in Brooklyn, with unsurpassed knowledge, experience and instincts. While real estate is her first passion, she also loves to cook, and foster dogs for New York Second Chance Rescue, where she serves as the Vice Chair of Corporate Sponsorship.
