Home.Com’s 10 Top Holiday Cities Only Include One City In Florida: Orlando

Home.com released their 10 Best Cities to spend the holidays and, not too surprising, only Orlando made the list for Florida and it came in at number 6.  The top city was New York, which I found ironic since so many New Yorkers are in Miami for the holidays!  Number 2 was Chicago, 3 San […]

What Is Going To Happen To The Miami Real Estate Market In January?

My Favorites From Art Miami

I finally made it to Art Miami today and had a great time.  There was a lot of wonderful art by Miro, Picasso, Wifredo Lam, and many others.  There was also a lot of silly art, such as a ball that consisted of a variety of dish sponges all glued together.  Although I thoroughly enjoyed […]
