Boutique Fort Lauderdale Residential Brokerage Closes $46 Million In Luxury Home Sales since January 2014

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – As home prices and sales in Fort Lauderdale’s prime waterfront neighborhoods continue to increase, Panton & Co. Realty, the fourth generation, family run boutique brokerage, has closed $46 million in sales in the first five months of the year, a record for the company and a personal record for owner and real estate industry veteran, Joy Triglia.

In Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious Harbor Beach neighborhood, eight waterfront Homes have sold since January 2014. Panton & Co. Realty, Inc. brokered four of those deals, two of which were the highest sales in the neighborhood, 2550 Del Lago Drive which sold for $8.35 million and 2407 Laguna Drive which sold for $7.1 million.  The company has had five sales in the Las Olas Isles neighborhood since January 2014 in addition to a listing and sale on Delmar Place in the esteemed Seven Isles neighborhood.

According to Triglia, most of her buyers are coming from the northeast region of the United States looking to for an escape from cold winters.  They arrive in South Florida and fall in love with the waterfront lifestyle and all that the area has to offer.  Many then decide to make Fort Lauderdale their home.

“We’ve been marketing and selling luxury real estate in East Fort Lauderdale for four generations, through multiple booms and recessions,” said Joy Triglia, who began in the business in 1985 and took over from her mother, Barbara Panton, in 2011.  “We are one of the most experienced and knowledgeable offices catering to this unique Eastside Fort Lauderdale market and many of our clients are repeat and referral customers,” she said.

Panton & Co. Realty, Inc. has been family owned and operated since its inception more than 50 years ago. Triglia’s great grandparents relocated from Italy to New York and opened a real estate office.  Her grandparents, George and Ann Panton, moved to Pompano Beach and started the business.  Her grandfather served as president of the Pompano Board of Realtors.  Her grandmother sat on the board and also led the Florida Woman’s Council of Realtors for many years.  Both grandparents also sat on national and state real estate boards.

“With an increasing number of people from around the world discovering the great South Florida lifestyle and strong property values, and with only a limited number of luxury waterfront homes available, we’re confident to say that purchasing waterfront real estate in east Fort Lauderdale will remain a solid investment,” Triglia said.
