Pete Crane, Melanie Kimpton and Jonathan Howard

Pete Crane joined Pebb Enterprises as vice president of acquisitions and dispositions.

Crane left Noble Properties, where he was vice president and director of acquisitions and dispositions. He also previously worked for Franklin Street.

Pebb, a Boca Raton-based real estate investment firm, has been working to rebuild its portfolio and team following a plane crash that killed several employees in 2015. The company is now selling some of its out-of-state retail properties with plans to acquire office, industrial and retail assets in South Florida.

Douglas Elliman’s Melanie Kimpton and Jonathan Howard were tapped to lead sales at Riva in Fort Lauderdale. Elliman took over the remaining sales and marketing of the 100-unit, 15-story condo building at 1180 North Federal Highway earlier this month.

Bradley Deckelbaum’s Premier Developers completed the luxury condo project, which overlooks the Middle River in Fort Lauderdale, earlier this year. About 30 percent, or 30 units, remain. Kimpton is the sales director and Howard is an associate.

Elliman also promoted Jaime Drysdale to vice president of marketing for new developments in Broward and Palm Beach counties. She was previously senior marketing director handling developments that include VistaBlue Singer Island, 3550 South Ocean, Akoya Boca West, The Bristol and 2000 Ocean.

Dan Casey joined Florida Partners as a vice president of investment properties. Casey was previously with ReMax Advantage Plus, also based in Boca Raton.

Carlos M. Rodriguez joined AmTrust Title Insurance Company as Florida agency manager. Rodriguez will be responsible for developing, marketing and managing AmTrust’s operations statewide.
