July 2017

Active 2017 Highlighted by Fabulous MBF Events!

With so much promising development on the horizon, it certainly is an exciting time for the Broward and Palm Beach real estate community! This year, Master Brokers have already enjoyed outstanding events at some of the region's most high-profile projects and establishments.

In July, we enjoyed a fantastic "Easy Breezy" at The Boatyard in Ft. Lauderdale - no speakers or panels, just Master Brokers reconnecting with fellow members during summer, enjoying each other's company, and introducing potential new members to our group.

In May, we visited the new sales gallery for Four Seasons Private Residences Fort Lauderdale, and were treated to enlightening presentations about this transformational new development and the future of the city’s downtown and beachfront areas. City of Ft. Lauderdale Commissioner Dean Trantalis discussed the city’s exciting recent improvements, its efforts to distinguish itself as a tourism and residential destination, and its plans for future improvements to infrastructure and traffic flow.

100 Las Olas; the first new condominium planned in downtown Ft. Lauderdale in more than ten years, hosted a festive reception in February. Charles Ladd, one of the city’s most successful developers, led a presentation on "Revitalizing Las Olas”, which highlighted the boulevard's unique standing among other similar South Florida destinations, as well as several top retailers and restaurants being targeted for vacancies along the thoroughfare.

Stay tuned for more exciting events in the coming months!

project, this celebration brought together more than
125 Master Brokers for an evening of merriment and

Jeff Morr presents the MBF "Legacy Award" to David and Lauren Popham, who accept on behalf of 2012 Honoree Jeanne Baker

Chaired by Iliana Abella, Penni Chasens, and Nancy Iliffe, the festive event was held in the Grove at Grand Bay sales gallery, adjacent to the project's future location on South Bayshore Drive in Coconut Grove. Members enjoyed signature cocktails and fine cuisine, while admiring scale models, renderings, and model rooms that showcased the project's cutting-edge design.

During the course of the evening, the MBF thanked Terra Group for its generosity and support of the broker community.

Incoming MBF chair Jeff Morr then presented the chapter's 2012 "Legacy Award" to Miami real estate legend Jeanne Baker, who was represented by her son, David Popham and her granddaughter, Lauren Popham. (The MBF Legacy Award honors longtime members who have enjoyed exceptional careers in Miami real estate, and whose leadership and professionalism elevated the standards for the entire industry.) Ms. Baker's extraordinary career in South Florida real estate blazed a trail for thousands of successful women in the industry. She accomplished this legacy through a potent mix of style, dedication, and a passionate commitment to fairness. Ms. Baker constructed a real estate empire that, at its peak in 1996, employed nearly 600 agents in six offices.

The MBF then honored Emilio Palomo, who marked his final event as chair of the chapter. Mr. Palomo thanked his colleagues on the MBF advisory board for their tremendous dedication and support during his four-year run leading the organization.

"The Master Brokers Forum accomplished truly great things under Emilio's leadership, and we are delighted that he has chosen to remain on the advisory board," said Morr. "One of Emilio's finest decisions was assembling the current Holiday Party committee, which produced yet another amazing event. We thank them and, of course, our esteemed sponsor for making this Holiday Party a huge success."
