Two firms are expanding their reaches north of Miami

RelatedISG International Realty has opened in Weston, marking its sixth location and second in Broward, the company announced on Thursday.

RelatedISG, a joint venture between the Related Group and ISGWorld, acquired 34 agents from Florida Elite Homes, a boutique real estate firm founded by Janette K. Schafer.

The new office, at 4430 Weston Road, spans 2,300 square feet, according to a spokesperson.

It partnered with Plan B International Realty, opening the Coral Gables location in September; and acquired Donna Incorvaja’s Donna Home Expert Team of five sales agents in Fort Lauderdale.

In July, RelatedISG expanded to Edgewater with a two-story, loft-style office that spans 2,100 square feet.
