Halstead Real Estate’s Barak Dunayer is taking his team to Douglas Elliman.

Dunayer is partnering with the Jacky Teplitzky team at Elliman, the brokerage said in a statement. He’s joining along with his wife, Yael Dunayer, and team member, John Machamer.

Last year, the Teplitzky team’s deals included a $26.5 million sale at Vornado Realty Trust’s 220 Central Park South and a $12.9 million duplex at 252 East 57th Street. The team claims to have sold more than $1 billion worth of real estate in New York and Miami.

Dunayer said he’s known Teplitzky for 20 years and teaming up will allow them to become more competitive — including offering better service and referral partners.

Barak Dunayer started his real estate career in 1999, going on to start his own agency, Barak Realty. The firm grew in size, even during the depths of the downturn — with 43 agents in late 2009. But as the climate grew more challenging, Dunayer and a number of his agents joined Halstead in 2012.
