UPDATED, July 12, 10:13 p.m.: Less than a month after EWM Realty International announced it was rebranding, a longtime broker left to join Douglas Elliman, The Real Deal has learned.

David Siddons, previously a vice president at EWM, moved to Elliman with his five-agent team after nine years with the Coral Gables-based brokerage. Last year, the Siddons team sold more than $81 million.

In June, EWM, the top brokerage in Miami-Dade based on sales volume, became Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty. Ron Shuffield, president and CEO, said in a statement that the brokerage enjoyed working with Siddons and looks forward to cooperating with him on future deals.

Siddons said he’s been approached by other firms over the years, but that Elliman, where he began his career in 2008, was his first choice. He said he was looking for “fresh energy.”

“The thoughts of moving [brokerages] had already been in my mind,” Siddons said, but added that he wasn’t as familiar with the Berkshire Hathaway brand as he was with Elliman. “I just felt like in the luxury sector for New York and L.A., Douglas Elliman is stronger.”

Most of the group’s sales are in Coconut Grove and Coral Gables, with others in Miami Beach, Pinecrest, Palmetto Bay, Fort Lauderdale and elsewhere in Miami-Dade. He said properties in the $2 million to $5 million range are “the bread and butter of our business.”

His team includes agents Stefania Cambarau, Cristiane Buzolin, Elaine Tatum, Fernanda Zomignani, Marianela Figueredo and marketing director Loes Franquinet.

Siddons is joining Elliman’s Coral Gables office at 1515 Sunset Drive, which opened earlier this year.

In March, Judy Zeder’s team left EWM Realty International after about 16 years to join Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber’s group at Coldwell Banker.
