Reyes is CEO of Rosemont, Illinois-based Reyes Holdings, an international food and beverage distribution company which generated more than $30 billion in revenue last year and has 30,000 employees, according to Forbes.

The Reyes bought the house in 2018 for $11.5 million from Canadian banker and real estate investor Adrian Tauro and interior designer Sloan Mauran, according to records and published reports.
Lisa and John Cregan with Sotheby’s International Realty represented the sellers in the latest sale. John Cregan confirmed their roles, but declined to discuss further. Jonathan Duerr of Compass Florida represented the buyer. Duerr confirmed that he was the buyer’s agent and said the deal was off-market.
