Luxury sales are slowing across the country, from New York to California, but they’re rising in […] Read more

The PBHFA Forms A Strategic Partnership With Brightline !

We are thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with Brightline.   Owned by Fortress Investment Group, not only does Brightline eliminate the hassles of commuting between West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami, but it is a great way to network.  Every time I have traveled via Brightline, I have met very interesting and influential people on board.  It’s more like private jet travel, in this regard than a commuter train!  I highly recommend the service to everyone.  DSG
