I have been involved in real estate in South Florida since 1986. I served as a consultant to All-State Properties L.P., a public company involved in the incorporation and development of the City of Lauderhill, Florida. I was a sales associate with Starich Corp. and subsequently Richard Greene & Associates, each real estate brokerage firms. Upon receiving my broker’s license, I worked as an independent contractor as consultant and broker and incorporated my own brokerage company in 1992, Barbara Martineau Rosenthal, Inc. I am the qualifying broker for my firm.
As an independent contractor I served as consultant and broker for the Trump Organization; I was General Manager of Trump Plaza of the Palm Beaches Condominium Association, Inc., a PUD located in West Palm Beach, Florida. I remained in the status of General Manager during the transfer of the property to Marine Midland Bank and then to the unit owners from 1989 to 1992. During that time I was involved in sales, marketing, pricing, improvements to the property, zoning issues and all other matters related to overseeing the project. I have been continuously involved in the sales and leasing of Trump Plaza units since 1989 while West Palm Beach has been going through a major revitalization process. Inherent to my sales activities in the area is monitoring the growth, development and zoning changes that affect the property and the surrounding area.
I have served as a fact witness and expert witness in both state and federal court in Florida.
