First Service Realty moves to new Pembroke Pines location

To better serve Broward buyers, sellers and investors, First Service Realty, Real Living, recently moved its Pembroke Pines office to a convenient, easily accessible location.

“Our new high-tech office at 14936 Pines Blvd. is just a few miles from our prior location,” said George C. Jalil, Broward regional manager. “It gives our company tremendous exposure, and we are already attracting more walk-in traffic from the Whole Foods Market and other stores in the Cobblestone shopping center.”

“We are committed to growing our Broward office network,” said Eduardo San Roman, GRI, president and CEO of the dynamic full-service real estate company established in 1982. “Our plans call for future offices in Weston, Miramar, Plantation and Fort Lauderdale to complement our Hollywood and Pembroke Pines locations.”

Miami-based First Service Realty, Real Living, has 13 offices and more than 900 sales associates serving South Florida clients, according to Armando Diaz, chief operating officer. “We can simplify the complex process of buying a home,” says Diaz. “Our experienced team makes sure the transaction goes smoothly, and we can close the sale at any of our office locations — a real convenience for buyers.”

First Service Realty, Real Living, offers buyers and sellers the benefits of a coast-to-coast relocation program as well as local, national and international marketing tools, which showcase their homes to buyers around the world. Buyers can also obtain mortgage loans and title insurance through affiliated companies.

Diaz adds that one of the keys to the brokerage company’s success is its ability to attract successful sales professionals by offering high commissions, marketing support and training programs. “We are excited about opening our next office in Weston in the near future,” says Diaz. “We are already interviewing agents who are committed to helping buyers and sellers make their dreams come true.”

Sandra Olivo, district manager for the Hollywood office, adds that First Service Realty, Real Living, understands the importance of choosing high-traffic office locations and making life easier for buyers with “one-stop” services.

By signing a five-year lease for the new Pembroke Pines office, First Service Realty, Real Living, is demonstrating its commitment to Broward, according to Mary Lou Jalil, district manager. “We have a bright future here and throughout South Florida,” she said.

In fact, Thamara Assef, general manager, adds, “We still have room for two or three more offices in Miami-Dade.”

In turn, Real Living is an affiliate of Brookfield Residential Property Services, a leading global provider of real estate and relocation services, technology, and knowledge.
