The elusive five bedroom home is finally available in South Miami!  It’s updated, very comfortably sized (2,626 adj. sf per an appraisers measurement), and so pretty! There are great spaces for relaxing and entertaining, a wonderful eat-in kitchen, and as you can see – a phenomenal pool & patio!  This is what I call a special commodity – I’ve lived down the street from this home for 25 years and have seen it sell 3 times; each time within 48 hours of going on the market.

This property was SO special the Buyers made the offer without ever having given the slightest thought to moving!  In a happenstance moment one Sunday afternoon the Buyers, who lived in the neighborhood many years ago, stopped by our open house with friends – partly to see the house that had been so talked about, and partly to say hi to their old friend.  From that point on the afternoon took on a life of it’s own; old friends rekindled, “Cool House” lived up to it’s nick name, and these wonderful Buyers who had not given a moment’s thought to moving from Pinecrest fell in love and are now my neighbors.  Congratulations to the most wonderful Buyers and Sellers.  Best of luck to all of you.

As fate would have it this gorgeous property on the Snapper Creek Canal in South Miami was purchased by the same person who tried to purchase it three years ago when it was on the market! I listed this South Miami gem in 2012 and after several months of consideration and several offers, the Seller decided he was going to remain in Miami. Nearly 3.5 years later, the first two prospective Buyers to visit after we listed the home a second time were the same Buyers wanting the property in 2012!  Something new and beautiful is on the horizon, and I can’t wait to see it.  Congratulations to the Buyers and Seller!

I have always been a huge fan of Pine Manor, a cluster of 42 Villas in the heart of High Pines. High Pines and it’s sister neighborhood, South Miami, are predominantly single family home communities, so when these Villas were built in 2008 within walking distance to the shops and boutiques on Sunset Drive they were a home run! Every now and then one of them is offered for sale, and they are spoken for pretty quickly – we were lucky to get our foot in the door.  I am so happy for the Buyers and Seller alike – congratulations!

This was a very special transaction on many levels. First, it was a complete honor and pleasure to come to know the Seller, Charlotte Dison. A couple of years ago I wrote a blog about Dison Park, which was a new park in South Miami thoughtfully created by it’s next door neighbor and the park’s land owner, the same Charlotte Dison. I had a brief but impressionable encounter with her many years before, and was thrilled when she called me last summer to talk about selling her home. 

Secondly, real estate education is on going and Charlotte taught me a lot.  In a multi-offer situation she chose an offer contingent on financing over a cash offer – a first in my career.  Why?  Because it is important for everyone to have an opportunity for home ownership.  We ended up selling to another Buyer later on, but it was the original Buyer’s option to withdraw from their Contract.  

Third lesson that was reinforced is that selling one’s home is bittersweet (and sometimes just plain sad).  Charlotte and I have a lot in common: we married and raised our families in South Miami (our houses are 5 blocks away from each other!), we have made life long friends of nearby neighbors, and our homes are the fabric of our lives – that’s really hard to walk away from:(  When we left the closing table we both had tears in our eyes; Charlotte saw her past and I saw my future.  Congratulations to the new Buyer, and good luck to my friend, Charlotte, who I will fondly miss.

“Enchanting” describes this one-of-a-kind estate of four independent structures linked with magnificent rooflines and keystone walkways sheltered by trellises and extended eaves. A collaboration of talented husband/wife residential and landscape architects, this sprawling near-acre compound along the Snapper Creek Canal includes a main house, fully outfitted Southern-style guest cottage, office structure with twin offices & lofts (which might be converted to bedrooms), and  three-bay carriage house.  An encircling indigenous forest and organic produce garden is nothing short of awe-inspiring, especially for those who appreciate South Florida living.  There is nothing like this anywhere…you will have to see it to believe it!

A storybook neighborhood, an exceptional home, and a wonderful location are components every buyer yearns for.  Look no further! Giorgio Balli designed and built this wonderful home in 2007, classic and timeless in style, rich in appointments, and nestled in a one-of-a-kind neighborhood where children play outside and dust finds streets filled with conversation. This is an opportunity and game-changer!

I LOVED this home in High Pines, as did all of the Buyers who made offers on the property! We went on the market on a Monday, and by the following Monday we had 5 offers! Our Sunday Open House literally looked like a casting call. The greatest part of being a realtor is giving keys to Buyers who are so excited and will really enjoy it. The worst part about being a realtor is turning away others who desperately wanted it. There were 4 other prospective Buyers who were very disappointed, and so was I…I wish I could have pleased everyone.

 Congratulations to the Buyers, and to the Seller who I have worked with many times before and adore. Also, I can’t sign out without a big thank you to Jenny McCloskey and Geraldine Blakely for another AMAZING staging project – it was nothing short of phenomenal.
