FORT LAUDERDALE’S EXCITING EVOLUTION
FREEBIRD Real Estate lands in the studio to give a bird’s eye view of the momentum the Fort Lauderdale market is seeing. Join us to hear from FREEBIRD founders Don & Jennifer Ginsburg on how their lifestyle approach to real estate has helped them close countless deals in the Fort Lauderdale area- in other words, “HOW you live should lead to WHERE you live!”
“I’ve focused my entire career in South Florida and have always had an affinity for city living and a love for the opportunities that exist in our urban locales. Prior to marriage and kids, I lived in metropolitan areas like Delray Beach, Coconut Grove, and, best of all, East Fort Lauderdale.
When my wife, Jennifer, and I became parents, we moved to the suburbs to raise our family. It was a healthy experience. We embraced the suburban lifestyle. We taught our kids practical skills, like how to throw a football, ride a bike, and swim. However, we often ventured to East Fort Lauderdale to eat, drink, and socialize. We knew that, in time, we would be living there again. We just didn’t know when.
We grew impatient waiting for that ‘perfect moment’ — when the kids would be grown up and out of the house. So, we made the move back east earlier than what is considered typical. We were obviously incredibly thrilled. It was the homecoming we had always imagined, only a decade sooner.
We planned the move by ourselves. Jennifer and I were comfortable analyzing the housing options in East Fort Lauderdale. We know the neighborhoods professionally and personally, so we knew what areas would best suit our way of living. Ultimately, we wanted our new home to be an extension of our lifestyle. This idea motivated our home buying journey and turned our house-hunt into a sociable, outgoing experience.
The most shocking part of our move was how many friends, colleagues, and strangers were envious of our decision and how we went about it. We didn’t realize how many people wanted to make a similar move but didn’t know where to start. In truth, all they needed was a trusted advisor — someone who had already done it to show them the way. This realization, combined with the desire to guide people through an equally fulfilling journey, was the impetus for FREEBIRD.”
