Sandy beaches, storied history and leisurely living comprise the residential experience of Florida’s Gold Coast. As a top producer at The Boca Raton Resort & Club and member of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury’s esteemed Society of Excellence, Jonathan Postma knows the insider scoop on the prestigious properties of Palm Beach County. With more than 15 years of real estate brokerage experience and more $500 million in recent sales, the Boca Raton native remains deeply immersed in the community and shares his expertise with those eager to live in tropical style.

From resort and country club residences to oceanfront and intercoastal homes and condominiums, Postma has been ranked as one of Palm Beach County’s ‘power brokers’ for his record deals in Boca Raton, DelRay Beach, Highland Beach and Hillsborough Beach.

As a recognized industry trailblazer on the coast, Postma shares a few notable trends on the influx of aspiring luxury buyers:

  • “The COVID-19 epidemic has brought a wave of newcomers from the west coast. California and Washington residents are arriving on Florida’s shores like never before."
  • “Florida continues to be a tax-advantageous state, especially for those moving from municipalities with high income tax rates such as California or New York. The amount of money buyers save by moving to Florida can result in real estate being heavily discounted or free just from savings alone.”
  • “Boca Raton’s Resort & Club has been a significant draw for the northeast clientele. Its catalyst into becoming mainstream are the latest luxury amenities now available to members.”

When discerning which Southeast Florida neighborhood will best suit his clientele, Postma outlines the unique benefits of each oceanfront. “Boca Raton offers plenty of social opportunities behind its gated communities. DelRay and Highland Beach give a more coastal feel with easy access to the beach and beautiful water vistas.” Postma adds that buyers who desire a vibrant nightlife nearby can also enjoy the action Atlantic Avenue brings on the weekend. And should a buyer be seeking to savor the best of both worlds with ocean and intercoastal offerings, Hillsborough Beach is prime for boat owners to charter the smooth sailing waters. “My last few notable sales have been in Hillsborough Beach; the value of these homes are only increasing.”

The Jonathan Postma Group strives to be synonymous with the iconic Boca Raton Resort & Club, an exclusive 200-acre spread which has recently undergone a $200 million transformation this past year. With an office located at the resort, Postma is regularly called upon for his expertise on the unparalleled buying and selling opportunities of the Boca Raton Resort & Club. “The resort renovation led by Michael Dell (head of Dell Technologies) is creating a unique niche in Palm Beach County geared for an affluent audience seeking the utmost privacy,” says Postma.

Originally designed by the acclaimed architect Addison Mizner in 1926, the sprawling property has attracted household names for its elegant waterfront setting, bespoke amenities and fine dining. From an adults-only yacht club and family-friendly beach club to new offerings including the Spa Palmera, Harborside Pool Club and Bungalows, The Boca Raton Resort & Club is an oceanic oasis at every turn. Flavor expands at the resort as the renowned Major Food Group behind Carbone and Sadelle’s opens four additional dining on-site dining destinations.

On the horizon for the Jonathan Postma Group is a team extension to cover more Southeast Florida regions including Miami and Palm Beach. His latest listing? This oceanfront, Highland Beach stunner. “With plenty of deal overflow and referral business, I aim to expand organically, meet the popular demand and cater my services to more markets.”
