Top Miami Beach Realtor Nancy Batchelor joined Compass, leaving Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty after about 20 years.

Batchelor and her team of 10 agents, plus administrative staff, joined Compass and are working out of the firm’s Lincoln Road office in Miami Beach. The move marks a big win for Compass, adding to a string of former EWM agents and top brokers from other firms recruited by the brokerage over the years.

Batchelor and her team have closed sales totaling about $320 million so far this year, doubling their 2020 business, she said. She has hung her license with EWM since 2002 and has been licensed since 1983, state records show. (The brokerage rebranded in 2019 after joining the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network.)

She declined to disclose terms of her agreement with Compass, but said it was “a very, very attractive package.”

Since 2017, Audrey Ross, Carole Smith and Liz Hogan have joined Compass from EWM.

Batchelor, whose team includes Bettina Muñoz, Laura Preuss-Kühne, Nesti Mendoza, Elias Palacios, Dana Rothman, Juan Salas, Michelle Shurtleff, Simone Weissman Stein, Andrew Holtz and Christopher Batchelor, focuses on Miami Beach, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove. The demand for homes has remained high, and inventory has dwindled as a result, making it a competitive market.

“We have lots of buyers right now, so we’re really honing in on the market and reaching out to our prior customers because it’s a great time to be a seller,” Batchelor said.

She called it a “tough decision” to leave Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty, but said that she was ready for a change.

“We enjoyed being instrumental in the launch of Nancy’s career, and I look forward to our continued joint community involvement,” said Ron Shuffield, president and CEO of BHHS EWM Realty, in a statement.

Batchelor said she had been approached by most of the big firms, but was impressed with Compass’ technology and collaborative agents, as well as its reach north of Miami-Dade County in markets that include Vero Beach, Wellington and Delray Beach.

“What I love about it is everything is in one place,” Batchelor said, referring to the company’s technology tools. “Right down to ordering client gifts.”
