The Agency is opening offices in Miami-Dade County and expanding its new development division.

The Beverly Hills-based brokerage expanded to South Florida in October with an office in Boca Raton, and is now targeting other key markets in the tri-county region with locations in Aventura and Coral Gables.

Chris Franciosa and Jared Ringel are leading the company’s South Florida expansion. The Agency is leasing about 1,000 square feet at 20900 Northeast 30th Avenue in Aventura, in addition to a four-office suite at 95 Merrick Way in Coral Gables, according to a spokesperson.

Howard Elfman is managing broker of the South Florida operation, and Oliver Ruiz was hired as strategic growth manager. The Dustin Fealy Group joined the brokerage and will be based in the Gables, according to a release.

The Agency Development Group is also representing three new construction projects: 353 Sunset in Fort Lauderdale, Aventura Village in Aventura and Bay Harbor One in Bay Harbor Islands. Gina de Varona heads the firm’s new development arm.

The brokerage has 25 offices in Brentwood, Calabasas, Danville, Malibu, Noe Valley, Venice, Orange County, Pacific Palisades, Palm Desert, Park City, Scottsdale, Sherman Oaks, Turks and Caicos, Los Cabos, Punta de Mita and elsewhere. It’s been on an expansion tear since it was founded by Mauricio Umansky, Billy Rose and Blair Chang in 2011.
