“South Florida by the numbers” is a web feature that catalogs the most notable, quirky and surprising real estate statistics.
Thanks for clicking the link to read this article. Chances are that when you did, you had a good idea what to expect from reading The Real Deal, and from this long-running partnership with the Master Brokers Forum. You had a certain level of trust that made you comfortable. Such is the power of branding, and the driving factor behind several of South Florida’s most successful condominium projects in recent years. When choosing a condo to purchase, maybe you know the particular developer and how well they make their buildings — but you definitely know a global brand that is synonymous with quality, style, sophistication, and longevity. We explore the local condo branding trend (and what makes it work) in this edition of South Florida by the numbers.
