Pioneering. Forward-thinking. Urban-minded. Launched by veteran real estate visionary Tony Cho in 2005, Metro 1 is a full-service real estate organization with a clear vision to shape urban neighborhoods and develop modern cities through brokerage, management and development. Cho and the Metro 1 team are executing on that vision.
Metro 1 isn’t just shaping neighborhoods—we’re giving back to communities. In fact, community service is a cornerstone of our brand philosophy.
M1 Community was developed with an awareness that corporate consciousness and social responsibility are guiding principles for making decisions that positively affect the environment, the community and its stakeholders.
Our M1 Community initiative runs through every project we engage. We spearhead educational efforts and allocate resources—both volunteer hours and financial investments—to make a difference in the communities we serve. We want to make every community we enter a better place for the people who live and work there.
Metro 1 volunteers make true connections with community organizations, assuming leadership roles, serving as ambassadors and contributing resources. M1 Community is actively engaged with a number of community and cultural partners including The New World Symphony, Perez Art Museum Miami, Lotus House, Surfrider Foundation, Epilepsy Foundation, Yoga Gangsters, Moksha Foundation, Urban Paradise and more.
