Real Estate Groups Form Partnership

Two longtime South Florida real estate leaders have formed a partnership with a new vision for the future of the industry. The Pier Group has joined Re/Max Prestige Realty to become the fourth office in the expanding brokerage. As one entity, they will offer their customers the skills and expertise they need to navigate today’s housing market.

“Both companies are known in their market as having professional agents who believe in top tier customer service,” said Adam Contos, vice president of the Re/Max Florida region. “This partnership is a joining of two very strong companies into one great company.”

The new firm will have 70 agents in four offices in West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Royal Palm Beach and Wellington. The Pier Group, established in 1999, is based in Lake Worth. “We have a great reputation in the community, and teaming up with Re/Max Prestige Realty was the next logical step to take us to a higher level,” said Robert D’Arinzo, broker/owner at the Pier Group. “The opportunity to be a part of a global brand with all the tools and technology is very exciting.”

This year, the market in South Florida has strengthened, with both home sales and home prices on the rise.

“The new partnership puts us in a great position to leverage our experience to better serve buyers and sellers,” said Rose Faroni, broker/owner of Re/Max Prestige Realty.

Offices are located at 301 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 9 North O St., Lake Worth; 1402 Royal Palm Beach Blvd., Royal Palm Beach; and 12789 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington. For more info., visit
