At Fort Lauderdale-based public relations firm Durée & Company, we are fortunate to work with a number of South Florida real estate clients. From project inception to delivery of the finished project, we offer our clients a full range of real estate public relations and marketing services every step of the way. Our expertise in this field allows us to carry out successful project launches and craft a public relations and marketing strategy that is unique to each client.

Sales center openings are a key milestone in real estate projects and just last week, we were honored to debut a brand new sales center, this time for our client The Reserve at Edgewood, a gated community in Fort Lauderdale featuring 105 townhomes.

To celebrate the official grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony, Durée & Company rallied support from the community and secured Fort Lauderdale elected officials including Mayor Jack Seiler, City Manager Lee Feldman, Assistant City Manager Christopher Lagerbloom, Fire Chief Robert Hoecherl, Fort Lauderdale Commissioner Romney Rogers, Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce President Dan Lindblade and Edgewood Civic Association President Wendy Wills. The Reserve at Edgewood Architect Gustavo J. Carbonell was also in attendance as well as 100 invited guests and real estate professionals. Coldwell Banker Director of New Business Development Maria Mena welcomed the guests and introduced Coldwell Banker as the exclusive sales and marketing team for this highly anticipated project.

From professional photography to facilitating introductions between the client and community leaders, the D&Co team was present to handle every detail for this milestone event. Durée & Company has been heavily involved in many aspects of the project from the onset, from securing media placements to finding community involvement opportunities for the project’s talented team of individuals. Our approach is different for each client, because no two projects are alike and each client has their own vision of success.

Another recent client milestone? The Demolition event at 121 Marina at Ocean Reef Club® in Key Largo, Florida, developed by Blue Jay Capital in Key Biscayne, Florida. This distinct real estate project features 29 waterfront residences with direct marina access. The ultimate in contemporary living, this development provides a new level of luxury for residents to share with their family and friends for generations to come. It is also the first condominium development project within the Ocean Reef Club® community in nearly 20 years, so a crucial step in erecting this project was first demolishing the existing building on the site.

Right down to the silver-painted sledgehammers (because the perfect photo opportunity speaks volumes) we left no stone unturned and made certain there was a smart and effective strategy at play. The result? A compelling real estate story to share with the press and valuable information to share with the public and potential buyers. After all, the exposure provides a giant push to the sales team and creates foot traffic from potential buyers. The goal is always to sell and we love celebrating a good real estate milestone that helps with sales.

And while the 121 Marina Demolition event was an enormous success, there is more work to come! At Durée & Company, our work continues with our real estate clients throughout all of their real estate milestones including, groundbreaking, financing, sales successes, topping off, and much, much more. We put our expertise to work in creating unique stories for our clients’ success!
