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.

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.
