UPDATED, May 13, 9:17 a.m.: Eric Lavey has left the Agency for Sotheby’s International Realty, the latest defection from the boutique real estate firm. Once a talent agent, Lavey has served as the Agency’s partner and managing director since 2014. Previously, he worked at Teles Properties. Last year, Lavey closed $90 million in sales. The departure comes on the heels of Cindy Ambuehl’s departure from the Agency. She left to join Compass.

In the commercial real estate world, Paul Park left JLL after 14 years to join Hughes Marino’s Los Angeles office as senior vice president. In his new role, he’ll focus on tenant representation. Some of his bigger deals include representing Cartoon Network, CNN and Time Warner Cable. Park previously worked as senior vice president and national director at JLL, which he joined after working at the Staubach Company and CBRE.

Matt Berres also left JLL recently to join Newmark Knight Frank. As executive managing director in the firm’s Newport Beach office, Berres will specialize in sale, purchase and recapitalization of net lease properties. He’ll be working on the capital markets team led by Kevin Shannon.

Avison Young recruited Hayden Eaves for its Downtown L.A. office. Eaves, whose title is principal, will focus on representing financial institutions and landlords. His past roles include a senior vice president position at Collier’s International, Coldwell Banker Commercial and Cushman & Wakefield.

As for industrial real estate, Transwestern Development Co. is expanding its team by hiring John Privett. Most recently an executive vice president at CBRE, Privett joins as development partner for Southern California projects. In the past, he’s leased or sold more than 100 million square feet of buildings, valued at more than $4 billion.
