Estates At Acqualina Hosts MBF, Discussion on Impact of Global Events on Miami

The MBF recently held a lively discussion and dinner hosted by The Trump Group, developer of the newly-launched Estates at Acqualina in Sunny Isles Beach.

The Trump Group’s President of Sales Michael Goldstein and MBF event chairs Donna Bloom and Ralph De Martino, together welcomed more than 80 Master Brokers to the event, where members renewed acquaintances and networked on the beachfront lawn.

Preceding the panel, Goldstein spoke about The Estates at Acqualina, the newest extension of the renowned Acqualina brand, to be nestled on 5.6 acres of Sunny Isles Beach oceanfront.

The panel discussion which followed focused on a variety of global issues. Moderated by MBF chair Jeff Morr, the panel included Tim Padgett, Latin America and the Caribbean correspondent for WLRN-Miami Herald, and Steven Beatus, executive vice president of economic development for The Beacon Council. Topics ranged from the expansion of PortMiami and its effect on Miami trade and commerce; the need for more non-stop flights to and from East Asia; the importance of Miami and the United States’ stability in drawing investors from Venezuela, Brazil, and the Middle East; and the short and long-term impact of normalized diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba.

The panel discussion was followed by an elegant dinner and dessert catered by AQ by Acqualina, Acqualina Resort & Spa’s 2014 Forbes Travel Guide Award-recipient oceanfront restaurant.

Use these tips and tools to let the world know you are a MASTER BROKER

1. Feel free to use the MBF logo (CLICK HERE to download in .jpg format; CLICK HERE to download as .eps/vector) on all your listings and advertisements.

2. Make sure your property gets extra attention by adding **MASTER BROKER LISTING** in the "Broker Remarks" section of an MLS listing. Members who use this tactic receive more contacts from fellow members, and curiosity from agents who may become members in the future.

3. Make sure you "like", actively follow, and invite your friends to "like" the MBF Facebook page (CLICK HERE to visit) and use the handy "This Person is a MASTER BROKER" badge (see right) on your own personal and company Facebook profile(s).

4. JOHN DOE, MBF: While not an "official" designation, many members choose to sign documents and correspondence with "Firstname Lastname, MBF" to let colleagues know they are a Master Broker.
