Sime Realty Corporation & owner Scott Sime have been involved in the community through several associations and charitable organizations.
Community Associations & Charitable Organizations
Orange Bowl Committee
Scott has been a member of the Orange Bowl committee since 2008. The Orange Bowl Committee was created in 1935. Its mission then was to generate tourism to South Florida through an annual football game and supporting Festival. Since that time, the not-for-profit 343-member, primarily-volunteer organization has expanded its reach beyond the city to become a foundation in the South Florida community.
Real Estate Advisory Board of UM
He is also a member of the Real Estate Advisory Board for the University of Miami. The Board advises the School on the development of its real estate curriculum, which includes an undergraduate business major, a Bachelor of Architecture/MBA program offered jointly with the University’s School of Architecture, an MBA concentration and a Master in Real Estate Development and Urbanism (MRED+U) program offered in partnership with the School of Architecture and School of Law. The board will also help the School establish and promote a new Center for Real Estate Studies and Research.
Miami Lighthouse for the Blind
Scott has been an active board member of the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind since 2006. The Miami Lighthouse for the Blind’s mission is to provide vision rehabilitation and eye health services that promote independence, to educate professionals, and to conduct research in related fields. Miami Lighthouse has an experienced management team. Its CEO and other senior management have demonstrated outstanding professional acumen in their respective fields. This team is dedicated to offering the most effective state-of-the-art techniques and care to persons who are blind or severely visually impaired, as well as its new initiative in eye wellness.
As a long time residents of Coral Gables, Scott and his wife Belinda found it natural to get involved in the Waterway Renaissance project. The Waterway Renaissance was launched in early 2009 in Coral Gables, Florida. It continues to mobilize people who care about the health and safety of the Coral Gables waterways and recognize the need for action to restore and preserve them.
