Using a local lender for Miami Beach real estate, especially when it comes to condominium purchases is important. Every time we start speaking with a new buyer who needs financing to purchase Miami Beach real estate, we often notice the fears, nervousness and lot of misunderstanding in regards to lending. There are a lot of misconceptions about lending and people tend to do what they feel most comfortable with and sometimes this is not always the best decision.When I say “local lender” I don’t mean they have to physically “be” in Miami, rather one who knows our market and is successful in completing transactions in our city.When I say, “most comfortable with”, often I am referring listening to friends and family who got this rate or that rate and then focusing purely on the “rate”. Or e...

Waverly South Beach is hot. The Miami Beach condo on Biscayne Bay has seen two $1 million-plus sales in recent months, including the coveted Penthouse 5, which went for $1.12 million. The sales confirm that Waverly South Beach — and all of South Beach in general — are continuing to enjoy strong interest from investors. The development of the western side of the island in particular is turning heads in recent years. The addition of hot restaurants and clubs, like Bodega (which is both!), and lifestyle necessities like Whole Foods, yoga studios and Panther Coffee have turned attention momentarily away from the beaches and clubs on the east and toward an exciting new west.Waverly South Beach is one of the most recognizable condos on that side of the island. With it's bright colors and prom...

 Just previewed this number for clients, talk about sexy and sleek and all dressed in white! With the expansive windows bringing in all that blue the all white works just fine.        This 'Townhouse' unit at the Setai is on the market for $16.9 million. The 3,600 square foot unit is fun, with a double-height living room spanning the full width of the Setai's tower, and a staircaselike you have never seen before. According to the brokers, it has a mindboggling sound system which was designed by its current owner, a sound engineer.

What could be better than living in a Condo on the Miami beach? Not a lot really, but one thing that springs to mind is living in an Artecity Governor condo on the beach. The Miami beach condos are located in a former hotel that has been updated and made fit for present day living.The hotel was built back in 1937, and would have been the place to stay for the rich guests who visited just before World War II. The renovations that took place in 2008 have brought it back to the former glory. Despite having the plumbing and electrical works replaced, the house still feels as if it is an old building albeit one in excellent condition.The old and important features are still there – a prime example being the mosaic fountain found in the middle – and Josh Stein realtor has been responsible for...

   Architect Chad Oppenheim likes to build condos in Miami Beach and name them after his wife. First there was his breakout building, the Ilona, then came the Ilonabay, the penthouse of which is now on the market for $3.99 million. I was part of the original marketing team for both of theses projects when Chad was fresh out of the University of Miami school of Architecture back in 2002. It's hard to believe this three-story place, which looks absolutely massive, is 'only' 5,000 square feet, with most of that taken up by a 3,000 square foot double-height living room. A jumbo terrace on one side of the living room is matched by a nice, big courtyard on the other, and it's all topped by a 4,000 square foot private roofdeck that covers the entire top of the building and has a surprisingly l...

Astounding views of city’s skyline and Miami Bay greet the residents here.The first thing visitors will notice is the elegant and posh lobby of the building.

Sunset Harbour Condos are located in the area of Miami Beach that is just west of Lincoln Road and located on Biscayne Bay. This neighborhood is brewing with restaurants, grocery stores, gyms, yoga and more. There is also a yacht club, named the Sunset Harbour Yacht Club. If you are not a local Miamian you may miss the Sunset Harbour neighborhood because it is just off the beaten path of the main area of South Beach but is a bustling little neighborhood.The Sunset Harbour Miami Beach neighborhood is a quaint little neighborhood on the Biscayne Bay side of Miami Beach. Sunset Harbour home to the popular Pubbelly restaurant, Publix (the best one in my opinion on the beach), Fresh Market, Burgers and Beer, Sardina and now the newest restaurant from the Pubbelly owners Barceloneta.Sunset Ha...

           The third time was a charm for the 40,000ish square foot Alton Road Whole Foods Market designed by Chad Oppenheim which was officially approved  by the City of Miami Beach. I had worked with Chad while he was still at the U o M school of architecture. Some of his hi-rise condos are the most recognizable in the city. He has done it again here-simple clean lines and curves-perfect!

The Floridian opened her doors in 1925. Situated on the bayfront instead of ocean front seems strange today but back then the public was not that interested in tanning on the beach. These resorts were geared for northerners just looking to escape the cold winters.There was a massive veranda for afternoon tea and a grand ballroom for dancing the nights away.At some point there was a name change. The Floridian became the Biscaya Hotel, named after the great bay in Spain. The Biscaya slowly deteriorated and by the 1980's the owners filed for demolition permits. There was a public outcry to save the historic structure but in the end she was imploded with 600 charged of explosives on March 15, 1987. I was there to witness it and it was very sad. In a matter of seconds 62 years of history was...
