Broker-to-the-stars Christopher Poore has joined Prudential Douglas Elliman from Corcoran, The Real Deal has learned. Poore, who has worked with such celebrities as Marc Jacobs, Sofia Copppola and Michael Stipe, said the move would help him “get to the next level.”

Poore, who worked with Elliman before switching to Corcoran six years ago, cited Elliman’s new development team, run by former Related exec Susan de Franca, as a main reason for the move; he also noted that he’s interested in doing more work on new developments.

“Howard [Lorber] and Dottie [Herman] have really changed the brand, with the new website and the marketing campaign … It’s an exciting time to be at Elliman,” Poore told TRD. “The company has a great energy.”

During his tenure at Corcoran, Poore sold director and screenwriter Sofia Coppola’s condominium, at 161 Grand Street in Little Italy, for the asking price of $2.75 million as The Real Deal reported at the time. Poore also listed REM frontman Michael Stipe’s Soho penthouse for $10.95 million last month, though he could not comment on whether the co-exclusive with Corcoran agent Carter Wilcox would remain his after the switch.

In 2009, Poore sold designer Marc Jacobs his townhouse at the West Village’s Superior Ink, for $10.5 million, according to published reports.

Poore underscored that he departed from Corcoran on good terms.
