The South Florida real estate market is among the hottest in the nation, with a flurry of construction activity and a host of local leaders driving much of that growth.
The Business Journal editorial team has recognized 110 accomplished individuals as Power Leaders in Real Estate based on their professional accomplishments, leadership skills and standing within the real estate community. These are the developers behind many of the largest projects in South Florida, as well as the brokers, architects and construction experts who put those enterprises together.
In no way can this list highlight the breadth of talent throughout our tri-county region. But it is an accurate cross-section of the leaders helping to shape the region’s thriving real estate market. While the Business Journal editorial staff has the final say on who is honored, we do welcome suggestions. Send those to Editor-in-Chief Al Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
