The Art of Shaving founder just sold his Journey’s End home in Coral Gables.

Property records show JE Development LLC, a company controlled by Eric Malka, sold the 8,300-square-foot, seven-bedroom mansion at 9550 Journeys End Road to Nua 9550 LLC, a company led by real estate attorney Thomas Ringel. The buyer financed the deal with a $6.1 million mortgage from Florida Community Bank.

Malka was CEO and co-founder of the Art of Shaving, a chain of specialty men’s shaving stores. He’s now CEO of Strategic Brand Investments, a private equity fund based in Miami, according to his LinkedIn profile. He created the shaving company with his wife, co-founder Myriam Zaoui.

His former 1.7-acre Gables estate hit the market in 2014 for $11.4 million, was reduced to about $9 million in 2015 and relisted at the end of 2016 for the same price, according to
