Real Estate Leader Urban Pace Forges New South Florida Partnership
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty will draw new buyers and investors to national capital region’s luxury market
(Washington, DC—July 17, 2019) Urban Pace, a recognized leader in luxury residential development and placemaking, is forging a new top-tier partnership with one of the largest real estate services firms in America, South Florida-based Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty (EWM).
“Miami has become an increasing focal point for global investors and residential buyers. This partnership with EWM will expand Urban Pace’s reach to introduce these buyers to the depth of investment opportunity and dynamic lifestyle in and around the nation’s capital. It will also provide an avenue for us to bring Washington-area investors and buyers to the South Florida market,” said Clint Mann, President of Urban Pace.
The cross-market partnership was launched with an eye-opening tour last month for over 20 top EWM brokers that included visits to sales galleries in the Capital Riverfront, Shaw, The Wharf, and Capitol Hill neighborhoods as well as the Walter Reed campus. These brokers represent a vast network of international investors who have for decades made heavy investments in real estate in South Florida. The EWM team was impressed by D.C.’s strong rental rates and competitive condo fees when compared with Miami along with its high quality, luxury amenities.
“I’ve known DC was a thriving market for some time now, but until coming here and experiencing it firsthand, I didn’t understand the true potential for investment here,” said Ron Shuffield, President and CEO of EWM. “I’m excited to share the added opportunities that the Washington, DC market offers with our Miami buyers. Urban Pace’s extensive market knowledge and impressive developments provide our associates with the support they need to encourage our investor clients to take a close look at DC,” Shuffield said.
“As DC continues to mature, we see more opportunity to bring investors to the area as our luxury residential real estate market comes of age and takes its place on the global stage,” Mann said.
