Meet New York City's Youngest Real Estate CEO
Define success - perhaps material wealth, a college degree, or a book? Owen Boller is a businessman, luxury Real Estate advisor, and philanthropist. He believes that success is defined by building long term relationships on a daily basis. The 24 year old real estate mogul is based at Douglas Elliman Real Estate in Manhattan. Hailing from Zurich, Switzerland, Owen grew up with an appreciation for wealth and learned the basics of finance at an early age. At 18, he jumped into real estate part time, as his uncle sold resort properties around the globe. Owen was attracted to the art of making deals and negotiating contracts for buyers, but later became obsessed with marketing properties as well. Shortly after entering the sales arena, Owen joined forces with another broker and helped her open her own company. It wasn't long before he opened his own boutique firm, catering to the luxury second home market within a two hour radius from New York City. His firm, Boller Properties offers a connection between the Manhattan Market, and the suburbs.
Owen is also the founder and director of Save Our Species, a popular nonprofit where homeowners can donate unwanted household goods to the charity focussed on saving endangered wildlife. The donations are appraised and resold at bargain prices. The profits are dispersed to various programs created to preserve species that are facing extinction. Donors receive a tax deduction for their donation.
