Lauren Muss, a top-performing Corcoran Group broker who counts the sale of a $21 million Village townhouse and an $18.5 million Gramercy Park townhouse among her notable deals, is going to Douglas Elliman.

Muss, who closed $80 million in sales in 2013 and has contracts out for $68 million in 2014 so far, according to an Elliman spokesperson, was named Corcoran’s Individual Salesperson of the Year in 2010 and 2013. In her new role with Elliman, she will focus on new development marketing and sales, according to an emailed statement.

Earlier this week, The Real Deal reported that former Town Residential broker Brett Miles will also be joining Douglas Elliman.

Both moves coincide with the brokerage’s new partnership with Knight Frank Residential, which will combine the firm’s top listings with the London-based firm’s extensive list of international clients.

Together, the two firms will market the top 10 percent of Douglas Elliman’s listings in the New York metro area, Los Angeles and South Florida.  — Claire Moses
