RE/MAX Advance Realty Agent honored on her 30th anniversary

RE/MAX Advance Realty has recognized agent Barbara Sangetti for her accomplishments after 30 years with the company.

Sangetti earned her real estate license in 1980 and spent the first 10 years of her career with Lowy and Leff, focusing on rentals and investment properties. During this tenure, she was named “Realtor-Associate of the Year” by the Miami Board of Realtors. When she joined RE/MAX in 1990, she shifted her emphasis to residential, where she earned her membership in the RE/MAX Hall of Fame.

“At the heart of any successful organization you will find people like Barbara, who lead with integrity, a willingness to share their insight with fellow agents, and a tireless work ethic,” said RMA Broker-Owner Anthony Askowitz in a press release. “She remains a pillar of steadiness and professionalism, while showing an ability to change with the times as needed in our industry. As many of Barbara’s clients are still in the houses she sold them decades ago, she has also demonstrated exceptional talent in matching the buyer to the home, and vice versa. I am so pleased to have her as an active agent to this day, with no end in sight.”

During her tenure at RMA, Sangetti served Florida Foster Care Review as a member and chair for more than 25 years and has also volunteered her time on behalf of incarcerated women. She is a past director for the MIAMI Association of Realtors as well as a two-time president of the Women’s Council of Realtors. 

“I appreciate the recognition of this milestone, and the many blessings I have experienced since joining the company,” Sangetti said in a press release.  “We have amazing managerial and support staff, led by a broker who always makes himself available, understands the concerns and challenges of his team, and is actively focused on our education and health. I have been a witness and participant to extraordinary change in our industry (most notably the rise of technology and customer empowerment), and faced the challenges presented by hurricanes and pandemics. While I certainly do miss the more personal, one-on-one nature of the way we used to do business, I also appreciate how technology has made our jobs faster, safer and more efficient.”

Brown Harris Stevens Miami launches sports and entertainment division 

Brown Harris Stevens has announced the opening of a new sports and entertainment division in Miami.

The division will be led by Seth Cohen, one of the firm’s newest hires and a professional sports agent who represents athletes in the NBA and internationally.

In 2010, Cohen established sports management and marketing firm SAC Sports Family, where his clients included Cameron Johnson of the Phoenix Suns, the 11th pick of the 2019 NBA Draft; Desmond Bane, the top shooter entering the 2020 NBA Draft and Texas Christian University’s all-time winningest player; and Isaiah Todd, one of the nation’s top-ranked high school players and projected number one power forward for the 2021 NBA Draft.  

Prior to Brown Harris Stevens and SAC Sports Family, Cohen was an entrepreneur with ventures in mortgage, finance, and hospitality. After athletes and friends asked for his guidance in real estate decisions as they joined new teams in new cities, Cohen obtained his real estate license to assist them through the process. 

“I’m excited to join Brown Harris Stevens and its reputation of expertise and integrity,” Cohen said in a press release. “I’ve been impressed with the results Brown Harris Stevens has demonstrated for numerous clients in similar circumstances. Their boutique approach and extensive network is a perfect balance for what high profile individuals and athletes need as they make real estate decisions, especially in these unprecedented times.”

Brown Harris Stevens has extensive experience handling one or both sides of transactions for high profile individuals. The firm has represented such current and former professional athletes as Justise Winslow, Yonder Alonso, Eugenio Suarez, Chris “Birdman” Andersen, Placido Polanco and Dion Waiters; as well as prominent figures in the fashion and entertainment worlds, including Calvin Klein, Camilla Cabello, and Timbaland. 

“We consider every buyer and seller to be a VIP and treat clients accordingly,” said Brown Harris Stevens Miami President Phil Gutman in the press release. “But working with parties in the public eye comes with additional considerations and intricacies. With Seth, we’re proud to formalize a dedicated Sports and Entertainment Division with a strong, trusted leader.”
