Despite a market slowdown, South Florida real estate firms continue to make hiring and personnel moves.

Codina Partners hired Eric Blanco as its vice president of accounting and finance, according to a press release. Blanco joins the Coral Gables-based developer from his previous role as a principal at the Carlyle Group, a global investment firm with $385 billion in assets under management, according to the company’s website. 

In his new role, Blanco oversees all accounting and finance for Codina, the firm that bought a Hialeah Sears site for $16.5 million in May. 

Miami-based industrial firm Elion promoted Dalia Pearson to partner and chief compliance officer, according to a press release. Pearson joined Elion in 2015 as a managing director of finance. Her most recent role was senior managing director of finance.

Elliot Machado and his Double L Group, which includes Jonessa Guarino and Nikki Marshall, joined Serhant from One Sotheby’s International Realty, according to a press release.

Marco Tiné moved to Serhant, bringing his team Casa Collection Realty, including David Gerber, Gabriela Guzman, Victoria Randolph, and Andrii Orfani. Tiné launched his own brokerage with Side in October.
