Just Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables Gables Laroc at 441 Valencia Avenue, No. 503

441 Valencia Avenue #503, Coral Gables, FL 33134

List Price: $525,000

In my opinion Gables Laroc  is one of the best kept secrets in Coral Gables.  Small enough to be what I consider a ’boutique’ building, yet majestic and quite impressive at the corridor of downtown Coral Gables.  What everyone who visited this lovely condominium community was drawn to was the proximity to Coral Gables’ urban hub, and the east of LeJeune Road location only a few steps from the quiet tree-lined streets that lead to Venetian Pool, Salvadore Park, and the historic homes Coral Gables is renowned for.  In a time when condominium living is so prevalent and the choices so ample, it’s not easy to find the right fit but I think the wonderful couple who bought No. 503 and will call Gables Laroc home is going to love it. Congratulations to all!

List Price: $3,595,000

Another classic example of persistence and tenacity prevailing!  We started looking for a home with these Buyers in the Spring of 2017, and over one year and SO many houses later, we circled back to this beauty in the Ponce Davis area which the Buyers were always drawn to.  The magical setting, magnificent oak trees, and idyllic neighborhood were impossible to duplicate, and the house was so special – majestic with an authentic southern charm and warmth.  It was a pleasure selling a home full of love and happiness to Buyers that would carry the torch and love it so much.  Congratulations and our best wishes to wonderful Buyers and some very special Sellers.

Recently Sold by Vanessa Kayes and Val Byrne 1600 South Bayshore Lane #7A, Coconut Grove

List Price: $715,000

Waterfront properties under $1,000,000 are difficult to find in Miami, and in Coconut Grove it’s next to impossible!  This gem, tucked away in a quiet little boutique building on Biscayne Bay, had million dollar views and a poolside marina that many a Buyer coveted.  Vanessa and I were so delighted to hand the keys over to a wonderful couple who loved Coconut Grove and the community as much as the Seller did.   Congratulations to everyone!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables 1525 Mendavia Avenue

List Price: $959,000

It didn’t take long to sell this fantastic home near the University of Miami (and it was more than a coincidence that it sold to a UM faculty member!).  The activity and number of Buyer’s looking at this home was crazy – a true reflection of the market in Coral Gables for properties under $1,000,000.   Finding a home that is attractive, updated, on a large lot, and having a beautiful swimming pool is not easy to find in Coral Gables, and compounded with a premier location near the University of Miami and steps from the new Alhambra Park, it was no wonder we were under contract in less than a month.

Congratulations to the Buyer and Seller!

Recently Sold By Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables 5671 Banyan Trail

5671 Banyan Trail, Coral Gables, FL 33156

List Price: $1,999,000

It wasn’t easy walking away from ‘the sanctuary’ on closing day, but we passed the gavel to a family that loved and appreciated the very special neighborhood, the old Florida-style house, and the amazing 90 acre park that lays behind it (Matheson Hammock West).  The natural beauty on this Coral Gables acre property was so inspiring – many a weekend I went plant and orchid shopping to duplicate something I found growing or hanging from a tree. Right now I am in the drawing and permitting stage of a similarly designed gazebo too (like the one in the picture above)! You know what they say – imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!  Congratulations to the Buyers, Sellers, and two great realtors – it was a pleasure working with all.

List Price: $850,000

I have always touted ‘my neighborhood’ and my neighbors as the best in the land.  We have such a magical place back there behind Dante Fascell Park that nobody wants to leave!  I get phone calls every week from people asking me if I know about any houses coming on the market near Dante Fascell Park or Epiphany School and St. Thomas.  It must have been serendipity AND perfect timing that on Halloween night one of the couple hundred people trick or treating on our street (that is no exaggeration) asked me to keep them in mind if a property came on the market.  The very next day a Buyer withdrew from  Contract on this canal front home, and the rest is history as they say.  Congratulations to everyone!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables 5709 Riviera Drive

5709 Riviera Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33146

List Price: $896,000

I drive up and down the southern end of Riviera Drive at least twice a day on my way to the office and home, and know that some of the most beautiful and elegant homes in Coral Gables are found on this winding, picture-perfect street; I have memorized most every one of them (and sold a handful of them on the Coral Gables Waterway side of the street). What most seasoned realtors also take notice of are the ‘diamonds in the rough’ that lay in waiting.  When I was alerted that 5709 Riviera Drive was on the market and read the description which mentioned a ‘sweet home that had been occupied by the current owner for 66 years,’ I knew exactly which house it was.   Within hours we had the Buyer in the house, and shortly after we submitted our offer (several other offers were submitted which was very stressful).  Thankfully our offer was selected, and a very smooth transaction evolved from there.  Thank you and congratulations to the Buyers, Sellers, and Mauricio Barba & company, who were a pleasure to work with!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Cutler Cay 19322 SW 77th Place

19322 SW 77th Place, Cutler Bay, FL 33157

List Price: $449,500

For the under $1million Buyer searching for a guard-gated community with a beautiful Country Club environment, one of the first stops should be Cutler Cay!  I’ve watched this community evolve since it was developed a little over 1o years ago, and it is a wonderful place to live.  The property management company keeps it in tip top shape, the security is excellent, and the amenities fabulous (beautiful club house, lake-side swimming pool, basketball court, tennis courts, playground, and full service, fully equipped gym).  A diverse range of sizes and floor plans with square footages ranging from about 2,500sf to 5,500sf will satisfy most every need (including those multi-generational families needing separate quarters), and prices ranging from $400,000 to the $900,000s will make Buyers in the under $1million price point smile:)   

We searched Cutler Cay from end to end looking for a home in the last 9 months, and came upon this jewel in nearly perfect condition (what a joy it is to purchase a home that has a near perfect inspection report!).  The Buyers, Sellers, and realtor were an absolute pleasure to work with, and everyone left the closing table with a smile on their faces!  Congratulations to all!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables 1110 South Alhambra Circle

1110 South Alhambra Circle, Coral Gables, FL 33146

List Price: $1,199,000

If I had a nickel for every inquiry I received about the “house with the red door” I could have bought the largest Starbuck’s Frappuccino, and we were only on the market for 2 weeks! This gem on winding South Alhambra Circle  in south Coral Gables is a testimony to the always fashionable, timeless beauty of a sophisticated colonial home. In an age where modern architecture is the reigning design and we have seen long waves of Mediterranean,  “Key West,” and Florida Vernacular styles, the “classic” colonial is an undying statement.  I’m so happy for the Buyers and for the Sellers, who were the most wonderful clients!

EWM Realty International Ranks Number 1 in Coral Gables’ Sales

 

 July was an award-winning month at EWM! Not only was our company ranked #1 in 2017 sales in Coral Gables but the annual Miami Herald Real Estate Survey voted us Best Brokerage (for the third year in a row), and bestowed our beloved President Ron Shuffield the Best Broker award (every EWM realtor will attest to that and raise it some)! 

 

Nelson Gonzalez & Ron Shuffield

We swept the Oscars with ‘Best Realtor’ award too, and I use the term “we” loosely because that accolade goes to our famed Miami Beach realtor, Nelson Gonzalez.   My husband and I have known Nelson 40 years  – he has aged wisely and gracefully, and the award couldn’t have gone to a better guy!!!!

Coral Gables is near and dear to me – I was born in one of the original Coral Gables homes on Milan Avenue, attended Church of the Little Flower and St. Theresa School (I can still close my eyes and see the STS logo on my pocket), and have worked in the ‘City Beautiful’ for many years.  I am proud to have contributed nearly $25,000,000 of EWM’s $181,451,000 in sales this year.
