More than 2,000 real estate professionals assembled last month to hear a group of five industry heavyweights  discuss how Broward County grew to rival South Florida’s prodigal child Miami, at The Real Deal‘s Broward Real Estate Forum & Showcase.

Panelists included Bradley Decklebaum, owner of Premier Developers; Michael Hammon, senior vice president of the Related Group; Scott Leventhal, co-founder of the Trillist Companies; Kobi Karp, head of Kobi Karp Architecture; and Carolyn Block Ellert, co-founder of the Premier Sales Group.

Real estate analyst Jack McCabe led the panel through several topics, including the history of development in Broward County and its growing appeal for homeowners looking to head north of Miami’s hustle and bustle.

“It’s not that a building boom is happening in Fort Lauderdale,” said Deckelbaum during the panel. “It’s Fort Lauderdale changing into an entirely different place to live.”

The forum was held on April 23 at the Design Center of Americas in Dania. More than 2,000 real estate industry members attended and mingled among displays of the newest luxury developments.
