Prominent Real Estate Broker Joins Bulk Panel Discussion
Upcoming Condo Vultures® seminar to highlight future of bulk deals in South Florida
Mark Pordes, CEO of Pordes Residential in Aventura brokered the recent $160 million note purchase of Related Group's Trump Hollywood tower for Miami-based BH III. Pordes also brokered another high-profile deal this year - the sale of 2700 North Ocean for $120 million, according to the South Florida Business Journal.
Pordes and two additional panelists will discuss current challenges and opportunities for bulk buyers and sellers in the South Florida real estate market.
Pordes' notable collaborations include Turnberry Ltd., where he served for the past ten years as VP of Sales for Florida and the Bahamas. He has also joined forces in the past with The Trump Group, CMC Developers and Terremark.
As major bulk condo purchases in South Florida wind down, the next big wave is expected to be condo conversions.
November saw the last three major bulk purchases of condos in the tricounty South Florida area, according to Frank Thomas, Condo Vultures® Realty National Bulk Sales Director.
With the note purchase of Trump Hollywood, and purchases of Everglades On The Bay's remaining 677 units and CityPlace South Tower’s remaining 420 units, the era of new large bulk tower complexes officially came to an end, Thomas wrote in a recent CondoVulture.com report
"With funds and private equity groups still hungry for product, the next big wave will likely be condo conversions. As these buyers look for investment opportunities with good upside potential and tonnage, there’s almost no place else to turn."
A trio of experts will discuss the new frontier of bulk product in the panel discussion moderated by Condo Vultures® founder Peter Zalewski.
The program starts at 6.30 p.m.
