Barbara Estela, a top producer at Douglas Elliman, just joined One Sotheby’s International Realty as a global real estate adviser.

Estela has more than 10 years of experience in real estate sales. She was with Elliman for nearly three years, and most recently brokered the deal of the $19 million sale of 300 Costanera Road in Coral Gables to Marc Anthony. Estela represented the seller,

She’s closed about $40 million in sales so far this year. Estela said she began negotiating with One Sotheby’s a few months ago, and that she joined the brokerage because of its global reach.

“I knew I wanted to make a move, and they were first in line,” she said. “It doesn’t matter where you go. The [Sotheby’s] name is known.”

Estela is flying to Puerto Rico later this month and will be looking at properties for her clients. The only way to get to those listings, she said, is to have a brokerage office there, and Sotheby’s does.

Earlier this year, Sladja Stantic returned to One Sotheby’s after less than two years at Elliman. She opened an office in Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbour neighborhood and started a new team at the brokerage.

An Elliman spokesperson wished Estela “the best in her future endeavors.”
