Anna Zarro, Town Residential’s former senior vice president of marketing and leasing, has joined Gary Barnett’s Extell Development, more than a year after leaving the brokerage.

Zarro is now senior vice president of sales and leasing at Extell, where she will oversee the staffing of new developments and help determine the sales and leasing strategy for the company’s projects, sources said.

She declined to comment and a spokesperson for Extell TRData LogoTINY was not immediately available for comment.

Zarro worked for three years at Town before resigning last July. Sources said she was subject to a one-year noncompete, which may explain the gap in her employment. She began her career as an agent at Citi Habitats in 2005.

At Town, she helped build the company’s large leasing portfolio which, at the time of her departure, included 3,000 new development units, up from 500 in 2013.

Extell has several major projects in the works, including One Manhattan Square on the Lower East Side and Central Park Tower on Billionaires’ Row.
