What is your favorite property sold and/or work experience? My favorite recent transaction was selling a spectacular home to a prominent family in the
ultra-exclusive enclave of Coco Plum. A sumptuous home on an oversized lot, completely updated to perfection! Open, bright, and spacious. I was thrilled to help my clients purchase this gem of a home.
Do you work mostly with sellers or buyers? I’m very fortunate, I work with both residential buyers and sellers, as well as with commercial properties.
What sets you apart from other Realtors? I’ve been told my personalized approach, responsiveness, and discretion set me apart. Having lived in Miami for many years has given me an in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market; this is a unique advantage. I go above and beyond at every stage of the process.
What’s the biggest real estate trend you are seeing right now? Resiliency and sustainability in design are a huge trend now. I’m working with an increasing number of buyers interested in installing charging stations for electric vehicles. Homes that feature sliding glass walls to the outdoors creating indoor/outdoor living spaces are also quite popular. Water elements that flow throughout the landscaping beyond just a traditional swimming pool are very hot. I also see increased interest in natural light wood flooring and spa-like bathrooms. Since Covid —home offices and multipurpose gym/yoga/meditation rooms have been a sought-after bonus.
Where do you work? I specialize in Miami Beach, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, Edgewater, Brickell, Bay Point, Morningside, Surfside, Bal Harbour, and Key Biscayne. I have a relocation team that can assist my clients with buying or selling homes throughout the USA and internationally.
What’s the most important room in the house? Always the kitchen! Regardless of how many rooms
your home has, everyone loves to congregate in the kitchen – it’s the hub. It is by far the most important room in the house for a buyer. A well-appointed kitchen dramatically increases the value of your home.
Do you have any tips to easily make a home more desirable? Here are a few of my quick and easy tips:
• Fix the little things.
• Keep it clean and spotless.
• Go for fresh neutral paint.
• Upgrade your lighting and fixtures.
• Depersonalize your home.
• Clean up the yard and have the landscaping well maintained.
• Remove dated shades and blinds and let the light in.
• Remove excess furniture and clutter.
• Consider professionally staging your home.
• Spruce up the exterior of your home
• Perfect the entryway to make a great first impression.
I have some great resources for sellers looking to fix their homes, sell them for more, and not pay anything until closing.
