Colliers International South Florida expanded its retail division with three new hires, including former Comras Company broker Jonathan Carter.

Carter, David Preston and Jenny Gefen joined Colliers, which recently grew via its acquisition of CREC. Carter was previously managing director of retail leasing, and Preston left Newmark Knight Frank, where he was senior managing director alongside Gefen.

Preston’s clients include Benihana, BankUnited and Orvis, and Gefen’s clients include Checkers, Del Taco and Pieology.

The Keyes Company is moving to new offices in Homestead, Palmetto Bay and on Sunset Drive in Miami. It’s leasing 3,850 square feet at 11570 Sunset Drive, an office that will be home to 127 agents, mortgage, insurance and other employees. It will be completed in February. In Palmetto Bay, the brokerage is opening a 100-agent, 3,650-square-foot office at 8745 Southwest 136th Street by March. And in Homestead, 120 Keyes Company associates will work out of a 5,900-square-foot space at 809 Flagler Avenue. That’s also expected to open next month.

Sheryl Hodor and Troy Hotchkiss of “The Power Team” left Coldwell Banker for Compass. The mother-and-son duo focus on waterfront home sales in Fort Lauderdale. Ceiliah Epner also recently joined Compass as an executive director of luxury sales, bringing with her more than $20 million in listings. She was previously with Andres Asion’s Miami Real Estate Group.

Crossman & Company, a commercial real estate firm with offices in Florida, Atlanta and Charlotte, promoted Fernando Espino to senior associate in its Miami office.

Chip Falkanger was promoted to director of new construction and land development of Florida Luxurious Properties, a Fort Lauderdale-based brokerage.
