miami shores real estate: Green Urbanism in Miami - 12/24/07 04:10 AM
Most of you know that I have a bachelors degree in architecture from The University of Miami. The Dean of the school of architecture is Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, from the firm DPZ and best known for their unbelievable urbanism concepts.I studied with The Luis and Jorge Trelles as well as Teofilo Victoria and Andres Duany and the concept of "New Urbanism" was drilled into us from day one at UM. I recently found an article by where Andres Duany was interviewed and explains a bit about New Urbanism.
Andrés Duany is writing the blueprint for a greener human habitat. The Miami-based architect … (37 comments)

miami shores real estate: Real Estate Sellers do have Options - 11/19/07 12:08 PM
We work with a lot of real estate sellers that are not understanding that they need to be flexible.  As Realtors, it is our job to make them understand that the real estate market currently favors buyers and although this doesn’t mean they have to give the property away, it does mean they have to be open to different scenarios that will ultimately sell their property.
We recently prepared a purchase contract for some Miami Shores buyer clients and the deal never materialized because the sellers were being stubborn and wanted things done their way. It was a very strong offer and … (29 comments)

miami shores real estate: Use of awnings for your historic house - 11/09/07 05:27 AM
Just last week, a real estate customer asked me to explain the correct and incorrect use of awnings for Mediterranean Revival architecture.   I'm sure this will be an eye-opener for a lot of you, but the reality is that it is not rocket science.  There are basic rules and some NO NO's (like anything else), and if I leave any stones unturned, I'm sure some of you will let me know.
First take a look at the previous articles I've written about elements of Mediterranean Revival homes:

miami shores real estate: Real Estate Branding - Rick and Ines Style .....continued - 09/19/07 07:44 AM
In PART I of Real Estate Branding - Rick and Ines Style, I told you how our real estate branding efforts started and gave you some examples of what we were producing.  I explained how being consistent was key to our marketing success.  Now I'd like to tell you about change.
I can't explain if it's instinct, or just luck, but after a couple of agents started utilizing our colors and we no longer stood out from the rest, I knew it was time to change.  I also have to admit that the white type on the black background was not always … (79 comments)

miami shores real estate: Real Estate Branding - Rick and Ines Style - 09/15/07 04:09 PM
As Realtors we need to become incredible marketing experts not only of our properties but of ourselves as well.  When marketing yourselves and your business you must think of branding and the many aspects within the "branding scope" of marketing. Diane Aurit wrote a great article about branding and how different big and small real estate companies are with regards to marketing.  The big companies are usually "firm-centric" and concentrate on marketing their brand, not each individual agent.  There are some newer models of real estate companies that encourage agent branding and called "agent-centric".
Thanks to Diane, I decided to write an article describing our branding … (52 comments)

miami shores real estate: The Football Sandwich Shop in Miami - 06/04/07 04:28 PM

Have you ever driven by a really ugly looking place and you see that it is packed with cars and wonder if it is any good?
I mean absolutely no offense to the owners of The Football Sandwich Shop in Miami but they know that their pink building is everything but pretty - one thing is for sure though, everything I have ever eaten there is delicious!  The outside has no reflection on the taste of the food.

miami shores real estate: What makes a house a home - Miami Shores, Florida - 05/24/07 05:41 PM
"What makes a house a home" is the all time favorite question of a Realtor.  We're in the business of selling houses, houses that will become homes to many.   When selling a house, we always recommend to our sellers that it is best to show it as a house, not a home so that a buyer may be more prone to feeling a possible attachment.  When working with buyers, we always try for them to look beyond someone else's "home" to be able to picture themselves there.   CONFUSED YET??
The bottom line is that buying a home or selling a home can … (18 comments)

miami shores 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 shores real estate: Young Assistants in The Real Estate World - 09/26/06 01:49 AM
I have a 22 month old that comes with me everywhere and the reception from other agents is not always positive. I have noticed that some areas and some Realtors are more open to seeing kids at work than others – Granted, when my son comes with me, it’s to my own listings with the seller’s permission. I never take him to another agent’s listings. In Miami Shores, agents even ask about him and are disappointed when he is not there. Once in Aventura, I was scolded by an agent for having a child with me (at the time 6 months … (14 comments)
