Cross-Border Canada - Florida Real Estate Specialists Visit Toronto to share Insights into Today's Market

TORONTO, Nov. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - MMD Realty, LLC, the leading South Florida real estate firm led by Michelle Farber Ross, and former Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback and CBS sports analyst, Dan Marino, is traveling to GTA to hold seminars on Florida Real Estate. Not your standard educational seminar, Ross' message will be to deliver the insider secrets on how to win the properties in bidding wars and tougher negotiations and how to provision the purchase before you get to the closing table.

Michelle Farber Ross has been helping her clients to negotiate the best deals and below-market values on Florida residential, multi-family and commercial properties for years. "Florida has always been a choice destination for Canadians due to climate, ease of travel, language and culture. Now is the best time for Canadians to scoop up Florida properties while prices are still at all time lows," Explains Ross.

Highlighting MMD's ties to Canada, one of their most note-worthy clients is Garda, a Canadian-based worldwide company of over 45,000 employees and a $1.3 billion dollar operation. In June, 2011, Ross relocated their North American headquarters from California to South Florida, helping procure $1.0 MM in city, county and state grants, and tax relief for the company, as well as relocated key personal to the area. "I am eager and thrilled to begin Garda's new endeavors with MMD Realty," says President and CEO Stephan Cretier. "Garda has worked with Michelle Farber Ross for many years, she was solely responsible for relocating Garda's headquarters and executives to South Florida."

In the months following the seminars last year, Ross and her team closed several deals with Canadians and are continuing to manage the investments and properties purchased. "The time is right for Canadians to purchase properties in South Florida: the dollar is strong, the properties are well-priced and rentals are in high demand, the key is to guide our clients to negotiate and win the properties," explains Ross.

MMD Realty has invited Greenspoon Marder, a full-service, Florida-based business law firm of 31 years, to present critical information about provisioning the realty purchase prior to signing the contract to ensure flexible title structure that minimizes tax exposure. Uninformed and ill-prepared Canadians will be at a true disadvantage with respect to their cross border realty purchase and estate succession. The MMD Realty team, joined by Greenspoon Marder, will be visiting downtown Toronto on Tuesday, November 13th and Markham on Wednesday, November 14th with three seminars per day.

Greenspoon Marder, which has 10 offices located throughout Florida, also has extensive experience with cross-border transactions and other matters. The firm's practice is concentrated in the areas of commercial and residential real estate acquisitions and development; timeshare and fractional ownership development; resorts; community association law; zoning and land use; banking and real estate finance; public finance; commercial litigation; corporate securities; corporate tax and transactions; healthcare law; foreclosure and bankruptcy; labor and employment; immigration; international law; tax, estate, probate and elder law; international tax; life settlement; disability insurance and insurance policy issues; family law; sports and entertainment; personal injury; equine law; regulatory compliance and defense.
