Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce Holiday Party

This year I’m looking forward to attending the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce Holiday Party. It’s a great event, open to both members of the Chamber and the community.  It will be held Thursday, December 2nd at 5:30PM in the Biltmore Hotel, Country Club Ballroom. Over 25 local vendors are already engaged and will be offering food and beverages for guests to enjoy. Plus this is this a great opportunity to network with business professionals in a festive and cheerful environment.   Probably the most important component of the party is the philanthropic aspect. Each attendee is asked to bring an unwrapped toy for a child or a gift for an elderly individual. These toys and additional monetary proceeds will go directly to deserving charities in the Miami area. Participating charities […]

Cutler Bay Charmer

Want to live in a nice, family oriented neighborhood in Cutler Bay?  This is the home for you.   Located in the neighborhood known as “Serenity” situated between Cutler Cay and Saga Bay, both well known Cutler Bay communities east of Old Cutler, you will find a wonderful 3 bedroom, 3 bath home, custom built in 1997. In addition to the already spacious living room and dining room there is an expansive family room. In fact, it’s so large you could section a good portion off  and create a fourth bedroom or a game room, which is how the current owner is using the space. In addition there is a beautiful open kitchen with granite counters that overlooks the ample family room and eat-in area. The backyard has a screened porch, is fully fenced […]

Giving Thanks

With Thanksgiving just around the corner I would like to take a moment to let you all know that I’m thankful. Grateful for the year I’ve had thus far. With all of the recent news giving us such bleak reports on the real estate market I’ve found I’m truly lucky to have continued growing my business, even adding a third person to my real estate team, and already surpassing the total volume brought in last year with another month to go. I would like to thank my clients and everyone who has so thoughtfully given me business over the years. It’s great to be surrounded by such a fantastic network of people who continnually keep me positive and driven. Happy Thanksgiving and Thank you.

When the Price is Right

If you are considering selling your home the first question you must ask yourself is,”Am I serious about selling?” If the answer is “Yes” then I am sure you will want to attract buyers and receive the highest possible purchase price for your home. Pricing is crucial in today’s market. An over-priced home gives the impression that you are not serious about selling. Although, inventory is progressively decreasing there are still a lot of homes to choose from out there.  Serious buyers are aware of this and are doing their homework before making their next big purchase. It is safe to say that an overpriced home will often be overlooked not only by these buyers, but by realtors. Many buyers grow tired and frustrated with available housing, […]
