Lourdes Alatriste is back at Engel & Völkers.

Alatriste, a top producer at One Sotheby’s International Realty, left the brokerage to return to Engel & Völkers Miami as a partner and private office adviser, she told The Real Deal. She was at Sotheby’s as executive director of international real estate since October 2015, and before that was the No. 1 listing agent at Engel & Völkers’ Miami office from 2009 to 2015.

“I think Sotheby’s is a great brand, but for me I feel more aligned with the Engel & Völkers brand,” Alatriste said, later adding, “I’m ready to go to the next level. I think [Engel & Völkers] was going through some growing pains and they’re ready for me.”

The brokerage is under new management and is rebranding as of a year ago, a spokesperson said. The Miami office, led by license partner and managing broker Irving Padron, has about 50 agents. Alatriste will be based out of Engel & Völkers’ Coral Gables office.

“We wish Lourdes well in her future ventures,” Daniel de la Vega, president of One Sotheby’s, said via a spokesperson.

Alatriste is bringing with her about $100 million of listings, including the property at 100 La Gorce Circle Drive, which is on the market for $34.9 million, and a $21 million Gables Estates listing. She was the No. 3 producer at One Sotheby’s last year.

Last month, longtime Fortune International Realty duo Allan Kleer and Fabian Garcia-Diaz left the firm to join One Sotheby’s International Realty, bringing with them about $140 million worth of listings.

“I think right now the market is very good for international,” Alatriste said. “A lot of people are coming from all over, and there are a lot of uncertainties, but they still come to Florida.”
