You’ve never met a Luxury Real Estate Powerhouse like this one…and, we want to have a heart-to-heart with YOU!
October 12th, 2015
That’s because we’re a one-of-a-kind luxury real-estate company, and we believe in long-term, integrity-filled relationships with our clients that fall more into the category of “family” than “agent and buyer/seller/renter.” We care what you think, and we’re listening. Let us introduce ourselves!
We are Luxury Living Realty, with offices on renown Lincoln Road in the epicenter of Miami Beach (one of the most beloved travel destinations in the world!). Our black-belt specialty is finding people their dream home within one of the Dream Inspiring Living Areas of the world: Miami, Florida. Our team of Realtors specialize on Fisher Island, Miami Beach, Sunny Isles, Coconut Grove and Coral Gables.
We have been family-owned and operated from the start (Broker/Founder, Karla Abaunza, and her sister, Broker-Associate, Valeria Kelly, are the heart-and-soul of this collective, along with their team lead by Office Manager/Realtor, Cathy Corrigan-Perez, who keeps the business end running as smoothly as silk).
Twice per month, we’ll do a blog post on the art-and-commerce of a different gem in our South Florida treasure chest, and we welcome your thoughts, comments, and feedback. Let us hear from you! We love Social Media, and we love making “home dreams” come true. (Leave us comments here, or anywhere you find us! Links below…)
This month, it’s Lincoln Road! For those of you unfamiliar, Lincoln Road (also referred to as Lincoln Road Mall, and here as LRM) is a walkable, foot-traffic only, road between 16th and 17th Street on Miami Beach. Originally a mangrove forest, sassy and forward-thinking entrepreneur Carl Fisher (name sound familiar, Fisher Island lovers?!) cleared a strip of the woolly wilderness in 1912, and it became the city’s center.
Carl would be astounded at what his “little strip of land” has become. Those who are Florida natives (or have lived here for decades) can tell you all about the miraculous transformation of LRM from an artsy/eclectic gathering of mom-and-pop shops and galleries to a glittering mega-force of Big Brand, high-visibility commerce. There are still hidden gifts on The Road (we’ll tell you all about those), as well as what feels like a game of Real Estate Musical Chairs, as the Big Brands swap storefronts and locations in an effort to maximize their interaction with YOU. The latest buzzy news involves the sale of a chunk of LRM to a billionaire from Spain at the record-breaking price of $370 million (2nd highest priced real-estate sale in Miami-Dade county… ever!) for 5 stores on the south-side of a single block* (with stores like The Gap and Nike in the works…we think it’s a fine choice!).
Daydreaming about living closer to the LRM magic? Let us help! (More on a few “hidden LRM gems” next time!) BlogChat: what’s your favorite LRM memory? We’d love to hear it!
Wishing you a Perfect-For-You-South-Florida week!
Karla, Valeria, Cathy and the whole Luxury Living Realty Family
