Real Estate Authority was built upon the premise that superb customer service and exceptional communication are keys to an outstanding business. We look forward to serving you.
Owned and operated by Michael Brownell, Real Estate Authority features modern technology and customer-focused real estate brokerage services. Michael has lived in South Florida since 1980 and has seen the ever-changing landscapes in the area. Previously managing a brokerage firm of over 3,000 agents, Michael comes to the table with a diverse background in the local real estate industry and a pool of lucrative business contacts aimed at delivering quality customer service.
Melanie Englander-Brownell, Michael’s wife, is an immensely talented Realtor who is key to the development of the Real Estate Authority brand. While working for her previous broker, she recruited over 2,100 agents during a six year period on their behalf. Her positive attitude toward creating a warm and welcoming environment for the real estate agent is what makes her succeed in this industry.
