Gibraltar Private Welcomes Master Brokers Forum to New HeadquartersWednesday, May 22, 6pm-9pm - Gibraltar Trust & Bank, 55 Alhambra Plaza, Coral Gables

More than 75 members of the Master Brokers Forum (MBF) recently enjoyed a special reception and presentation at the new headquarters of Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust, located at 55 Alhambra Plaza. Members of the MBF (an elite network of Miami’s top-producing real estate professionals) were also treated to a remarkable presentation from John Dohm, SIOR, CCIM, PA on “Miami: Building a New Gateway to America”.

After enjoying refreshments and hors d’oeuvres in the bank’s main reception lobby, members were welcomed by Isabel Lacambra, Gibraltar’s senior vice president and mortgage production manager. MBF advisory board member Christopher Zoller, the event’s co-chair (along with Pat Klock Parker) then introduced Mr. Dohm; one of the nation’s most respected commercial brokers, the director of business development for Infinity Commercial Real Estate, and the immediate past president of the Realtors Commercial Alliance of Miami.

Mr. Dohm’s extraordinary presentation provided the guests with a comprehensive view of Miami’s historical origins; the city’s dramatic increases in population, commerce, and real estate values; and the dizzying array of current and pending infrastructural improvements that are poised to make the entire region a global power center for business and tourism. He sprinkled the presentation with personal anecdotes about his family’s multi-generational connection to Miami; graphs and charts which reflected hard data about the aforementioned points; and humorous observations about the contrast between Miami’s early days, its recent past, and the promising future.

“As Master Brokers, we work hard to be extra knowledgeable about Miami’s history and ahead of the curve on what’s coming next. John’s presentation was a true revelation for even the most informed and experienced of us, offering fascinating and profound information,” said Jeff Morr, chair of the MBF. “We are grateful to him and to our friends at Gibraltar for their tremendous and ongoing support of Miami’s real estate community.”
