Short sale dreams do come true

With all of the rumors about short sales being a horrible experience I am happy to say my team has closed two short sales in one week, one of which only took three months from start to finish! That’s almost unheard of turnaround time. Most people would like to avoid a short sale if at all possible. I’ve even heard of agents who refuse to show their clients short sale or foreclosure listings because they don’t want to deal with the perceived hassle. But when you have a professional team in place, including experienced realtors and a title company on board from the beginning to facilitate the process, it makes the transaction move much more smoothly. While it’s true that […]

Miami Beach Apartment

Living on Miami Beach certainly is a unique  lifestyle. Your main mode of transportation is a bike or your feet. Only blocks from the beach, the fantastic shopping of Lincoln Road and surrounding boutiques. A fabulous array of dining options. What more could you ask for? I listed a one bedroom apartment, located at 641 Espanola Way Unit #1.  As soon as it went on the market I confirmed numerous showings. Within 7 days I received 4 offers. Whether it’s for an end user or as an investment a little Beach apartment is a great buy because you are not just buying an apartment…you are buying the irreplaceable lifestyle that comes with living in such a unique place. Want to live on Miami Beach or another area of […]

Family home in Palmetto Bay…just listed

So you want to buy a home in Palmetto Bay… I just listed a house this week at 14500 SW 84 Court in Palmetto Bay and within the first few hours of it going live on the market we had two showings set up for that same day.
