Compass promoted Mercedes Saewitz to managing broker of the company’s Florida operations.

Saewitz, who was previously broker associate and founding agent, is working out of Compass’ Coconut Grove office. She’ll be responsible for managing the brokerage’s agents and its pipeline of properties, in addition to working with agents on adopting Compass’ technology.

Saewitz joined Compass in 2015 from One Sotheby’s International Realty. She merged her company with EWM Realty International in 2008, where she met Compass Florida’s now-president, Beth Butler.

Compass has grown to about 200 agents in the state since launching in Florida in 2015. Last year, the firm hired Philip Freedman from Cervera Real Estate to lead its new development division.

Compass opened its first Florida office on Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road three years ago.

Saewitz said the company plans to open a couple of new offices in South Florida over the next few months, but declined to provide specific locations.
