FRENCHMAN’S CREEK BEACH CLUB HOSTS
PALM BEACH MASTER BROKERS FORUM RECEPTION
Past Chair of Historical Society of Palm Beach Discusses
“Our County’s Rich Past: A Boon For Your Real Estate Future”
The Palm Beach Master Brokers Forum (MBF), an organization comprised of South Florida’s top residential real estate agents, recently held a special reception hosted by Frenchman’s Creek Beach and Country Club. The event, chaired by MBF board member Virginia Spencer, was held at the community’s exquisite beach club in Juno Beach, and featured cocktails, refreshments, hors d’oeuvres, and prize giveaways. More than 50 Master Brokers and guests were in attendance.
After a brief welcome and introduction from Lynn Byrd of Illustrated Properties and Lisa Moore of Frenchman’s Creek, guests enjoyed a special presentation by Harvey Oyer; a West Palm Beach attorney, author, lecturer, and former archaeologist. Mr. Oyer is a fifth-generation native Floridian who served for eight years as the chairman of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. In 2009, the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation recognized him with their Individual Distinguished Service Award, and he has also written two children’s books about the history of South Florida.
In his enlightening presentation, “Our County’s Rich Past: A Boon for Your Real Estate Future”, Mr. Oyer discussed the historical significance of Palm Beach County’s recent Centennial celebration. He also offered creative suggestions for Master Brokers to "sell" the county as a rich bastion of history, culture, and business development to prospective home buyers.
“Mr. Oyer was an extraordinary speaker, and simply dazzled our members with inspiring and useful information about our home county,” said Melanie Buhrman, chair of the Palm Beach MBF. “We thank him and our friends at Frenchman’s Creek for making a truly memorable occasion for our members.”
