UPDATED, July 30, 10:20 a.m.: Carol Cassis and Stephan Burke have joined Douglas Elliman from Brown Harris Stevens Miami.

The Cassis Burke Collection team, which includes Diana Carulla, Laura Buccellati and marketing director Ted Borges, closed more than $55 million in sales last year, according to a release. The group will be working out of Elliman’s Miami Beach office under managing broker Patricia Rotsztain.

The team recently represented the seller in the $5.5 million sale of a Continuum North unit to Alberto “Beto” Pérez, the founder of Zumba. They’ve also brokered deals involving Bitcoin, including the first known cryptocurrency-only real estate transaction in South Florida in late 2017.

KAR Properties and Fortune Development Sales named Amy Ballon the director of sales for 2000 Ocean, a 64-unit luxury condo development in Hallandale Beach. Ballon previously worked on sales and marketing of Sabbia Beach in Pompano Beach.

Shahab Karmely’s KAR Properties is developing 2000 Ocean. The 38-story building was designed by Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos and Kobi Karp. With prices starting at $2.6 million, the building is expected to be completed by 2021.

Sasha Seco was promoted to vice president of Moss Construction in Fort Lauderdale. Seco has worked for Moss for 14 years, most recently as the construction management firm’s director of business applications.

Meike Macgregor, John Nugent and their Coastal Living team joined Compass Florida’s Palm Beach office. The Coastal Living team, which includes Max Olivier and Zachary Schmidt, has closed more than $80 million in sales over the last three years.

Dean Stokes and Brian Fairweather Jr. joined the Agency in South Florida. Stokes previously worked with The Bears Club.

KW Property Management & Consulting promoted Zuly Maribona to senior vice president. Maribona was previously regional vice president, overseeing the company’s portfolio of nearly 20,000 units in Collier, Lee and Hendry counties. As senior vice president, Maribona will help KW expand in Orlando, Tampa and Jacksonville.

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that Amy Ballon co-led sales of Sabbia Beach. She was part of the sales team.
