Broker Steve Hall and his mother, Betsey Hall
Power broker Betsey Hall, who has brokered a pair of eight-digit Palm Beach home sales in the last two years, has left her post at Fite Shavell & Associates to take a roll with Hall and Hall Real Estate, the Palm Beach Daily News reported. Her new firm was established by her son, Steve, and his wife, Renee, last month after they left Fite Shavell.

In July 2009, Betsey Hall brokered the county’s biggest transaction of the year, a $17.4 million sale of Casa Andanda at 710 S. Ocean Boulevard. She represented the buyer, best-selling mystery novelist James Patterson. At the time, she and Steve worked at Brown Harris Stevens.

Hall also represented Patterson a year later during her Fite Shavell tenure, representing him in the $10.3 million sale of his home at 686 Island Drive.

She joins her son, who on the verge of taking office space at Royal Poinciana Plaza in West Palm Beach and is actively hiring more real estate agents. Steve has brokered at least 22 residential transactions totaling more than $71 million, according to his web page. [Palm Beach Daily News]
