Sea level rise, new construction and a shift of buyers from Miami is all contributing to Fort Lauderdale’s luxury residential market, according to one of the area’s top producing agents, Tim Elmes.

Elmes, CEO of the Elmes Group at Coldwell Banker, discussed the nominal impact of climate change, increased sales activity for new construction vs. spec homes, and more with The Real Deal South Florida Managing Editor Ina Cordle at TRD‘s Third Annual Broward Real Estate Showcase & Forum in April.

Elmes was part of a panel discussion on the future of Broward County’s residential market. To watch the panel in full, click here.
