The move comes more than a year after rental management software firm Alfred bought RKW for $50 million, as part of its plan to scale up operations across the Southeast. 

Serhant, another firm that is scaling operations in the region, added 11 agents to its office in Delray Beach, a spokesperson confirmed. Led by celebrity broker Ryan Serhant, the firm added Suzanne Petrizzi, formerly of Corcoran, and her team of five agents: TJ Verdiglione, Kelsey Brown, Nicole Melveney and Colton Bryan. 

Also joining Serhant in South Florida are Jason Sims, formerly with Douglas Elliman; Julie Davis, formerly with Compass; Brandon McShane, formerly with Illustrated Properties; Ebru Covgun, formerly with Keller Williams; Lorena Rodriguez, formerly with Charles Rutenberg Realty; and Dani Short, formerly with Chris Allen Realty.
