miami luxury real estate: Change is Good - 07/01/08 01:25 PM
We would like to announce Miamism Team's new home - Majestic Properties.
It was time for a change, a change that would compliment not only our business and marketing style, but a change that would benefit each one of our clients individually.
Coldwell Banker was good to us and we are the first to admit that, it offered a strong corporate backing that Rick and I were used to with our prior corporate lives as an architect and accountant, but there were also limitations and we had to think past our personal comfort and look into the future of our business … (51 comments)

miami luxury real estate: Marina Blue - Miami Luxury Condo - 05/04/08 04:58 PM

Even for experienced Miami Realtors, visiting new condos is always exciting.  I for one love to check out the finishes and the preliminary design flaws.  Then I tear them apart with my clients, from finish choices to distribution problems.
This week I had the pleasure of visiting Marina Blue, designed by none other than Arquitectonica.  Located at 888 Biscayne Boulevard, in what Miami Realtors refer to as ˜the gridlock, because it is right across from the American Airlines Arena, Bayside Marketplace, The Center for Performing Arts, the new Museum Park, and the exit to I-395 that takes you to Miami … (18 comments)

miami luxury real estate: Why you should purchase your next home in Miami - 09/12/07 03:25 AM
Hi Paris,
After so many trips to Miami, I was so glad to hear that you are finally considering buying a property here.   There are so many places I know you will like, but I will narrow it down to three until I can get a feel for what you are really looking for.  By the way, I know how frightening it must have been to be next to Kid Rock and Tommy Lee when they started fighting last Sunday at the VMA's.  I'm sure it is not the first time you've seen that, glad you were not in the middle.
Here are the specs … (39 comments)

miami luxury real estate: Condo Hotels - pros and cons - Part I - 07/20/07 06:57 AM
I can't sit here and paint a perfect picture about condo-hotels because it wouldn't be me.  The condo-hotel concept has become a very popular trend mostly because of the incredible vacation and urban destinations as well as the resort-style luxuries that these have to offer, especially when luxury hotel chains back these up. Wouldn't you be prone to investing in a project that includes Marriott, Four Seasons or even Ritz-Carlton?.....that's what I call bringing "credibility" to the closing table.
The concept does have risks for both the developer and the condo buyer and it has to do with the way the … (23 comments)

miami luxury real estate: The Pink House - Miami Shores, Florida - 03/20/07 07:21 AM

The Pink House is one of the best known and most photographed residences in Miami. It is a symbol of modern design. It is located in Miami Shores, on Biscayne Bay and occupies a double lot with over 100' of open bay water frontage.
Many factors make this house interesting, but its controversy has always intrigued me.  Designed by Laurinda Spear and Bernardo Fort-Bescia of Arquitectonica for Spear's parents in 1976, it's a series of planes and framed views together with clever climate-minded design which maximizes East/West breezes.
Its color statement received plenty of attention in the late 1970's when it was built.  Neighbors were disturbed by the 5 … (40 comments)

miami luxury real estate: Home Sales Forecast Lowered - 09/10/06 03:15 AM
This is a quick article I wrote for our blog at
We felt the need to clear up a common misinterpretation for everyone who follows Real Estate trends. We are being bombarded by the Media on a daily basis that home sales are dropping. What does this really mean???This doesn't really mean that prices are dropping. What it means is that less homes are selling. There is so much inventory (so many homes for sale), that buyers have a lot more to choose from and leverage to negotiate, but at the same time, there are fewer buyers.More inventory, and fewer buyers … (4 comments)
