The Summer Doldrums Do Not Apply To Miami Real Estate

As of the time of this post, the Miami real estate market has yet to hit the summer doldrums even though many buyers are taking time off to travel with their out-of-school-children.  This week EWM’s Coral Gables office did over $16 million in sales and last week we did almost $30 million.  Given the lack […]

Preservation vs Private Property Rights

Several recent  articles have highlighted the issue of preservation vs private property rights.  I want to clarify that I am for historic preservation of relevant buildings but I think if it is done retroactively, it infringes on private property rights.
