Two brokerages in Palm Beach County boosted their agent roster in Boca Raton.

Claire Sheres, a top agent at Coldwell Banker in Boca, left to join Douglas Elliman.

Sheres, who sold more than $50 million in sales volume over the past two years, will be an executive director of luxury real estate based out of Elliman’s Boca office at 444 East Palmetto Park Road. She focuses on country club and luxury home sales in Boca and Delray Beach, according to a release. Over the past 15 years, Sheres has closed $430 million in sales.

Last year, Elliman acquired Boca-based Pink Palm Properties, which had about $100 million in sales over the previous four years.

The Koolik Group joined Compass, marking the brokerage’s continued expansion in Palm Beach County. Elliot and Wendy Koolik of Koolik Group Realty are bringing their team of more than 15 agents to Compass. The Kooliks focus on custom estate homes, country club homes, luxury condos and waterfront properties.

Pebb Enterprises brought on Chris Stewart as senior vice president of leasing. Stewart’s responsibilities include overseeing 2 million square feet of office and retail space, according to a release. He was previously director of leasing at RMC Property Group and has worked for DDR and Regency Centers.

Boca Raton-based Pebb Enterprises owns and manages more than 2 million square feet of commercial space across the U.S. Late last year, Pebb Enterprises and Pebb Capital sold a retail center in Wellington to MetLife Investment Management for $74 million with plans to invest the proceeds of the sale into Opportunity Zones throughout the country.
