Broward MBF April 2005 Board Meeting - Sponsored by Las Olas River House


FT. LAUDERDALE, FL – April 19, 2005 - Las Olas River House, Ft. Lauderdale's tallest and most talked-about residential condominium, recently hosted an advisory board meeting of the Broward Master Brokers Forum (MBF), an organization comprised of the county's top-producing luxury real estate agents.

The evening began with an elegant cocktail reception and introductions from Philip C. Freedman, director of sales for Las Olas River House, and Jamie Helman, executive vice president of Tarragon South Development Corp., the property's developer. Freedman and Helman then led the board on a private tour of the River House's remarkable luxury units. After the tour, the MBF board sat down to business – and a delicious catered supper – in the property's magnificent sales center, overlooking the New River.

"We could not imagine a more beautiful setting for our young organization to hold its board meeting," said Carolyn Block-Ellert, chair of the Broward MBF and broker/owner of Premier Sales Group. "The board greatly appreciated the hospitality extended by our friends at Las Olas River House, as well as the opportunity to learn more about this outstanding property."

"While all the board members were certainly familiar with the Las Olas River House, some had not experienced the breathtaking views and superb amenities for themselves," said Helman. "We were thrilled to showcase the property to this elite group of real estate professionals."
