With a background in engineering, public affairs and law, Neil Birenbaum has been serving the South Florida business community for over two decades. Neil was part of the engineering team that built Fort Lauderdale’s 17th Street Causeway, including the signature bridge linking Fort Lauderdale’s mainland with its internationally known beachside and boating communities. He has held executive positions for two Fortune 500 corporations. While at First Data, he led internal and external communications teams, partnering with the mergers and acquisition and international brand analysis teams to prepare media, shareholder, and employee communications packages, supporting international expansion.
He later successfully started his own mobile video surveillance company, Eye In The Sky. A nationally-awarded public-private partnership, EITS served as a precursor to permanent camera locations and broadcasted real-time traffic congestion and emergency response images to transportation, law enforcement, and Homeland Security managers for their immediate response.
As vice president of global public affairs for a high-profile law firm, he led all aspects of communications and business operations, including marketing and public relations. He also managed local and national media on several of the country’s most significant class action cases and the largest verdict awarded to an individual in US history (more than $1B).
A strategic thinker, Neil believes that anyone with a real estate license can list or show a house. But only those with a commitment to personal service, and the complete and comprehensive understanding of construction, location, and the behind-the-scenes transaction details, can make that house a home. Neil has a network of real estate attorneys, bankers, inspectors, and construction professionals to ensure that every detail of your home purchase or sale is accounted for.
Neil is passionate about Fort Lauderdale’s unique combination of business and outstanding recreational options and is well-suited to help you select your perfect home. He is a graduate of the University of Miami, and he is an avid boater, pilot, and SCUBA diver.
