Coldwell Banker’s Sklar Team Adds Zona West to Growing Portfolio in Broward


By Christy Jaillet


Coldwell Banker Realty’s Sklar Team was selected to market the brand new subdivision Zona West in Davie. Located just east of I-75 on the SW corner of 148th Avenue 14th Street, the exclusive luxury home development marks yet another milestone in the Sklar Team’s continuing expansion. The project’s marketing efforts will be led by Rose and Dean Sklar.  Zona West will begin delivering homes in the spring of 2021 with a starting price of $1.450 million. 

The Sklar Team was the natural pick for the project because of their long-time production and market dominance in the west Broward market and because of their recent expansion into Fort Lauderdale.  Cooperating with The Thomson Team, with a strong pull from the SE Miami areas of Coral Gables and Pinecrest as well as the islands of Miami Beach and Key Biscayne, Using their extensive sphere of past buyers and sellers and their creative and comprehensive marketing programs, they were the best choice to both market and occupy the site for maximum coverage.

Cody Sklar, The Sklar Team’s new Team Leader will assist with the management and marketing efforts, using creative and comprehensive marketing programs through Coldwell Banker’s Global Luxury department, tapping  the extensive sphere of past buyers and sellers that the Skar team has acquired during their 20+ years selling Broward real estate.

We sat down with the co-founder of the Sklar Team, Rose Sklar to learn more.

First, could you give us an update on the real estate market today?

The good news is, that despite COVID-19, the market is very strong and we have never been busier!!  Low inventory and low interest rates, equals a perfect recipe for selling New Construction. The luxury buyer is now laser focused on home life, working from home and utilizing home spaces like never before.  We are totally focused on meeting the needs of our buyers and sellers and making sure they have the most up-to-date information available digitally and virtually, so they can make the best decisions for themselves.

 

You recently brought in new people to your team and opened your Las Olas office. Is the Zona West project just the latest step in your expansion plans?

Yes! We have a wonderful combination of time-tested knowledge and experience backed up by The newest member to our team is our son, Cody, who brings a business degree from the University of Miami.

The sales center at Zona West will be our third office, adding to our presence in Fort Lauderdale and Weston. This allows our clients to buy or sell properties wherever they might want to move. 

 

What is the status of new construction in Broward County?

Interestingly enough, builders have been quiet since the beginning of 2019.  Since it takes 2-3 years to deliver a product, it is possible that there could be a higher absorption rate of the existing inventory with less competition from the new ones (which are always the most attractive).  How the inventory changes due to limited new products coming on the market and waiting for the new builds when they pick up will be interesting and certainly something a consumer should get good advice on when they are deciding to buy or sell.

What is The Sklar Team’s story?

Dean and I arrived in South Florida in 2001. We discovered the secret sauce to building our business was good old fashioned hard work and hustle.  Making connections, attending community events, and building relationships were critical. Embracing change and technology along the way has helped us achieve a stronghold in the West Broward real estate market. 

Over the years, we began to see a trend of our buyer pool moving east, so we opened our new office on Las Olas Blvd in Fort Lauderdale. Our Team provides personal boutique-style service to our clients backed by the Global market Leader Coldwell Banker Realty. 

We are fortunate to be a family-run team. We have a wonderful combination of time-tested knowledge and experience backed up by our son, Cody, who brings a business degree from the University of Miami, contemporary marketing, information, style, and education to the team. All of our staff and associates are part of our extended family. We work together to bring results to our clients.
