Real Estate Dream Team Holds Two-Day Conference in Toronto and Montreal to Target the South Florida Market and Community

TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - With strong ties to the South Florida market, Michelle Farber Ross, Michael Wekerle and Dan Marino join together to launch MMD Realty. With offices in South Florida, MMD Realty is setting its sights on reenergizing and reviving their local community, one real estate transaction at a time, by giving as much as five percent of company profits back to Dan Marino's namesake charity, The Dan Marino Foundation. Founding Managing Partner Michelle Farber Ross will be visiting downtown Toronto on Wednesday, November 30th and Montreal on Friday, December 2nd in an effort to educate Canadians about the current South Florida market. Ross' seminars will cover short-sales, foreclosures, current market conditions and tax provisioning for Canadians.

"As a first order of business, I wanted to make sure to arrange these limited engagements to educate Canadians on the current market in South Florida," says Managing Partner, Michelle Ross, whose clientele is made up largely in part by Canadians, both from Ontario and Quebec. "Our team works closely with Canadians, as one of the partners is from Toronto, and we are confident that we give our clients the best education while being protected throughout the transaction. There are some very specific provisions that need to be made for Canadian citizens and we make sure to guide them every step of the way."

Highlighting MMD's ties to Canada, one of their most note-worthy clients is Garda (TSX:GW), a Canadian-based worldwide company of over 45,000 employees and a $1.5 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."

Combining her passions of charity and real estate, Michelle Ross joined forces with Dan Marino and Michael Wekerle to create this real estate powerhouse. Set to forever change the real estate market, MMD will fill a void by giving back to the community while acting as a full service real estate conglomerate with services ranging from high-end luxury living, rentals and commercial transactions. Offering a fresh take on a traditional business model, MMD has strategically positioned itself in both the favorable South Florida luxury real estate market as well as the budding commercial market.

MMD provides the best resources available to empower agents to succeed in achieving and surpassing their own personal goals, strategically focusing on the community and the relationships that can be fostered. MMD Realty Fort Lauderdale is located at the Las Olas Riverfront Center l 300 SW 1st. Avenue Suite 106 Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 l 954.835.5500
