  When passing by this vacant lot one immediately notices that there is a stretch limo half buried in it. Sink hole in downtown? Not likely, is it a comment on how the decadence of Miami real estate development will bury you, or at least your car, alive maybe?" Turns out, it kind of is.   For Downtown Art Days, Fringe Projects had artist Nate Page create a temporary installation at the future site of the YOTEL HOTEL. Okay I have to admit I am not familiar with this brand and will post on what I discover soon.

Tibor Hollo is in his mid-80s, he's a Holocaust survivor and he's one of the most successful real estate developers in the history of Miami. According to a 2009 profile of Hollo in the Miami New Times, Hollo has been as influential in creating a downtown urban core as anyone else. In fact, there were moments during the '50s and '60s that it was ridiculous to think that there would be much, if any, development south of the Miami River. When Hollo proposed a tunnel under the river to connect with Brickell, he said, "those sons of bitches laughed me out of the room." Of course, to look at the city now is to see his vision alive. Brickell is the most dynamic neighborhood in the City of Miami — and it's only getting bigger. Miami's financial district is now the standard-bearer of urban livin...

When it comes to closing a sale, there are several deal breakers that buyers always share with their agents. Mold, insects and pests, and animal odors are common reasons for doubting to put an offer on your home. Whether you are selling or simply looking for ways to freshen up your home here are 5 tips for eliminating pet odors and making your home look more attractive for buyers. 1. Give your pets regular baths with a odor controlling shampoo.This seems like a no brain-er but you wouldn't believe how many people I know that don't bathe their pets regularly. I recommend using an odor control shampoo. I like the ones with ingredients such as oatmeal, lavender and pine needle. Adding a few drops of sage oil really helps to neutralize all the odors.      2. Buy an essential oil diffuser.Es...

 A major museum dedicated to Latin American art will open in the city in 2016. Newly released renderings of the design by FR-EE/Fernando Romero Enterprise look very exciting: the four-story, 90,000-square foot museum will have asymmetrical, cantilevering terraces, a sculpture garden, and a giant public plaza. The futuristic Latin American Art Museum will contain three floors of galleries with work by emerging and established artists from the region(maybe this will be my big break as a painter), and the top floor will house a restaurant. It's all expected to cost $50M which in Miami means $75M when it's all said and done. Can't wait to see it!

   Last week Solitair, a vertiginous new  rental high-rise soon to shoot up in Brickell courtesy of developers, ZOM and AIG Global Real Estate, just broke ground. The ADD Inc.-designed, 50-story tower will include 438 residential rental apartments and over 7,500 square feet of ground-level retail. A recent press release mentions that the building's architecture is inspired by the "Majule palm tree.Solitair's jagged façade accurately resembles the palm's patterned trunk, and will stand out in the Brickell skyline. The interiors, however, which supposedly draw from the same concept, are "urban, cool," and grey. Solitair's opening is planned for late 2017, no word on rental rates yet.

Happy Fathers Day to all the good Dads but especially to the great ones. I am lucky enough to have a great one, a fun one, one that I knew always had my back no matter what and still does.When we were all very young he played baseball for the NY Yankees farm team and I went to every game. Most of them I got to sit in the announcer box and they let me control the score board. He took me to see Godzilla at the Drive-in movie theatre on a hot summer night.He taught me how to bake the best apple pies and how to make the meringue on a lemon pie a half a foot high.He tutored me in my Spanish classes that helped me excel in the language. I would never have been able to live in Miami if this had not occurred.He came to my swim meets, my tennis matches and encouraged me all through flight school...

 What’s Stopping You? A couple of weeks ago, we talked about how nothing can stop you from making a great living as a Realtor except you because YOU can make the marketing calls every day.  As long as you make outbound calls every day, you will always have business coming in. So this leads one to the next obvious question, “What is stopping you from making the calls?”  Is it a legitimate excuse?   Most brokers can make 5 or 10 outbound calls in one hour and in most cases, that is more outbound, aggressive calls then most Realtors make in a week.  So why can you not block off one hour to make all your calls?  What stops you from making one hour of calls a day?  If that is all you need to do to succeed, why aren’t you doing it? Well, over the years I have made a couple of observations.  F...

Out showing property in the western burbs and had to snap this angry sky.Normally my photos are selling the sun and fun aspect to our wonderful tropical corner of Florida. Rainy season started June 1st and like clockwork the afternoon storms are developing over the Everglades before moving over developed areas. If I am lucky some much needed rain will make it to the coast and water my grass and trees!
