Terrence Le Ray, a Brooklyn-based Halstead Property broker, sold his condominium at Two Trees Management’s Sweeney Building in Dumbo for $2.65 million, according to city property records filed today.

LeRay, who confirmed the sale, bought the 10th-floor unit for $1.2 million in 2003, records show. The 87-unit, 11-story building at 30 Main Street, near Water Street, features 11-foot ceilings, a gym, bike storage and private rooftop cabanas. 

Halstead’s Nora Ariffin had the listing, but it was not made public, according to a review of StreetEasy.

Halstead named Le Ray “broker of the year” in 2011 for the Brooklyn offices in Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights. In March, broker Charles Homet, a colleague of Le Ray’s at Halstead, sold his home at the Sweeney Building for $1.2 million, as previously reported.

Le Ray is also known for his stylish appearance. He often dresses in G-Star jeans, complemented with John Varvatos shoes, a Breitling watch and a jacket and shirt from Spanish retailer Zara.

In 2007, he told the New York Daily News he aims to purchase apartments from developers at their earliest offering, when the price is often lowest. He has also worked as a doorman at the Coffee Shop in Union Square, and later in finance for American Express.

The buyers of the Sweeney Building unit are listed in property records as Gary Sng and Alvin Koh, both of Singapore.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly said Le Ray avoids paying a commission on his deals.
