Faith Hope Consolo joined Prudential Douglas Elliman on Saturday as Chairman of a newly created Retail Sales and Leasing division. Her partner Joseph Aquino will be executive vice president. The team is known for work with luxury retailers and top building owners. The long-time broker and vice chairman of Garrick-Aug Store Leasing decided to leave after her 20-year mentor, Charles Aug, sold the company earlier this year to investor Larry Selevan. Consolo was introduced to Dottie Herman, CEO of PDE, at Howard Rubenstein’s 50th anniversary party last June by Esther Muller who worked hard to bring them together. The two divas have since bonded.

Selevan said there are many talented brokers at Garrick-Aug which he intends to bring to a different level. He was in London late last week working on a merger with a public company.
