“Miami is entering a new golden age of growth!” Aventura Marketing Council business and community leaders learned why the future looks so bright for South Florida’s new condominium market when International Sales Group (ISG) and Property Markets Group (PMG) hosted a smash hit success meeting at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center.
Taking center stage, AMC Chair Cliff Schulman of Weiss, Serota, Helfman expressed appreciation to ISG principals Craig Studnicky and Phil Spiegelman; and Property Markets Group founder Kevin Maloney. For serving “best of show” luncheon specialties, applause also rang out for favorite Aventura restaurants including Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, The Cheese Course, Paladar Latin Grill, Luca Bella, Novecento, and Mo’s Bagels & Deli.
After a stellar performance by talented AT&T YOUNG STARS SHOWCASE vocalist, 14 year-old Lannie Rubio, the meeting’s next act featured rave reviews for ISG’s “2020: The New Miami” report featuring a highly relied upon, in-depth analysis of South Florida’s residential and commercial market.
Compiled by ISG for the fifth year, the report includes factual data on the current market and takes a forward look at plans and activities that will shape and define South Florida’s future position as a center for international commerce. Studnicky and Spiegelman concurred, “Miami is no longer just a great resort destination, but is evolving into a city of significant world stature.
“With the Panama Canal expansion, retrofitting of Port of Miami, high- speed rail service, a tunnel to speed commerce and ease traffic, road and airport expansions, South Florida is preparing to address our region’s growth. How these factors impact the real estate industry is the subject of our report, which can be used to succeed in today’s competitive environment.”
ISG’s report highlights the following great news:
*Wealthy & Wise: The 2013 Knight Frank Wealth Report global survey shows Miami ranks among the world’s top 10 cities considered “Most Important Now” by high net- worth individuals.

The “New Miami” report also includes a 10-year annual absorption analysis, a spotlight on renowned “Starchitects,” MLS re-sale inventory analysis, and a South American market report.
Before the final curtain call, everyone celebrated Miami’s 21st century mission “taking a holistic approach to land use and urban planning so that future generations can reap the benefits of well-balanced neighborhoods and a rich quality of life.”
