UPDATED, April 10, 4:15 p.m.: A former Univision executive sold a Gables Estates home with 335 feet of water frontage for $30 million.

Ray Rodriguez and his wife Liana sold the 7,466-square-foot house at 700 Casuarina Concourse in Coral Gables for $4,018 per square foot, records show. Casuarina Concourse LLC, a Delaware company, bought the property.

The estate, known as El Palmar, spans 3.3 acres.

Dennis Carvajal of One Sotheby’s International Realty represented the seller in the deal. Yvette Rivero of Mocca Realty, which is owned by Alex Pirez, represented the buyer.

It was listed in 2018 for $45 million, according to Realtor.com.

The property last sold for $3 million in 2000, records show. The home was built in 2006.

Ray Rodriguez was formerly president and COO of Univision Communications, a Spanish-language media company. He was responsible for all areas of the business, including sales, marketing, programming, production and business affairs.
