What Can The Young and Restless Do in Coral Gables in the Wee Hours of the Night?

Well, for kicks you might swim with the alligators in the canals at Gables-by-the-Sea; or maybe check out Ray Allen’s house while the wife and kids are sleeping? NOT. It does make for some interesting reading though. This weekend some restless party goers at a home on Lugo Avenue in Gables-by-the-Sea […]

It’s Throwback Thursday!

I love “Throwback Thursday” and find myself completely entertained while scrolling through TBT pictures posted on Facebook. Who doesn’t enjoy looking at old pictures? So I’m taking this concept a step further and posting a “Throwback Thursday” blog each week which will spotlight an older, original style home in South […]

Attention Urban Dwellers!

LUCKY YOU if you live in Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, South Miami, High Pines (and Ponce corridor), or Pinecrest, because they are Farmers’ Market communities!  A community is only as good as its ‘sense of community’, and there is something wonderfully refreshing and ‘grass roots’ about bumping into friends and […]

Art Week Shines in Miami! (and finally, so did the sun!)

Ghosts, Goblins, and Happy Street!

   Tomorrow is Halloween and my favorite day of the year! I have been watching ‘trick or treaters’ parade up and down my street in beautiful South Miami for over 20 years (you’ll recall from an earlier blog that I referred to my South Miami home as being located on […]

Would You Like To Live On ‘Happy Street’?

I was at “Books and Books” last weekend and lucky for me owner Mitch Kaplan was there too (which puts a whole different spin on reading and book buying).  We got into a conversation about some mutual friends and their children, and Mitch said he calls the street the friends […]

Did You See Me In The Wall Street Journal This Past Week?

I was honored this past week to appear in the Wall Street Journal – of course reporting on the housing market. The outlook in Florida, and Miami in particular, is so bright right now – housing prices are up by double digits in Dade County over the past year. WSJ reports that […]
