The Gold Coast Master Brokers Forum (MBF), a networking group comprised of South Florida’s top residential real estate agents, recently visited the newly-opened sales gallery for The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Boca Raton. The attendees were treated to enlightening presentations about this magnificent pre-construction luxury condominium development and the city’s exciting new public offerings.
More than 60 Master Brokers attended the event, which opened with a welcome from Gold Coast MBF chair Carolyn Block Ellert, followed by an introduction to The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Boca Raton from the development’s sales director, Harlan Goldberg. Mr. Goldberg introduced his sales team and outlined the exciting condominium; one of a select few locations worldwide with a residential property bearing the Mandarin Oriental name. The transformative project will feature eighty-five homes that celebrate the Boca Raton lifestyle, with prices ranging from $1.5 million to $12.5 million for one- to five-bedroom units. Mr. Goldberg was also joined by Frank Weed, Vice President of Development for Penn-Florida Companies, who shared the company’s past and ongoing projects taking shape throughout Palm Beach County.
This was followed by a special presentation from City of Boca Raton Council Member Scott Singer, who discussed the city’s new infrastructural and economic developments, in a lively presentation tailored specifically to the region’s real estate community. Mr. Singer outlined the downtown area’s new retail, dining, hotel, and residential offerings; groundbreaking events to attract visitors; and the city’s remarkable success in marketing, branding, and maintaining dramatically low millage rates while increasing property values.
“Our company recognizes the value in maintaining strong and friendly relations with South Florida’s outstanding broker community, and appreciated the chance to welcome such a distinguished group of professionals to our $3.5 million sales gallery,” said Mr. Weed.
“We were delighted with the opportunity to visit this spectacular project, and to learn about an exceptional addition to South Florida’s luxury real estate inventory,” said Carolyn Block Ellert, Gold Coast MBF chair. “It was also a great pleasure to discover the exciting new projects that are taking shape in Boca Raton, and to have Council Member Singer brief us in a way that spoke to our specific interests and concerns.”
