I shop for groceries at Whole Foods located at 6701 Red...Continue Reading!
I had a chance to visit 2 new listings in High Pines today, 7272 SW 53 Ave., & 7820 SW 54 Ave. Both homes are typical older, small sq. ft. High Pines homes that have been well taken care of by their existing owners. That being said it is interesting to compare their per sq. ft. prices versus what has been selling in High Pines. 7272 SW 53 Ave.,built in 1947, is listed at $301 per sq. ft(or $699K) while...Continue Reading!
After many months of effort I finally got Wachovia's short sale manager to visit 5045 SW 74 Terr. in High Pines. She was surprised and appalled by the condition. I told her that the situation was unacceptable to the neighborhood, and she agreed to get it resolved quickly as possible. Let's hope so, but I am not holding my breath. I will keep you posted.

I couldn't find Miss Val so I thought I would give you a few thoughts of mine... Is anything happening to Bouganvilla which is a great bar to visit in South Miami....There a sign by the front door announcing a hearing regading naming the building as a "Historic Site" on August 3rd at 7:30.... I don't know about that, but it is a good bar...Segafredos is about 100 ft. from Bouganvilla, and it looks ready to open in a couple of...Continue Reading!

This being Wednesday, I took the opportunity to visit a number of homes on the market in the $500K to $800K range. Of special interest were homes near the University Of Miami as I am having a new employee of UM come into town this weekend. Unfortunately, there was nothing open in either High Pines or Ponce Davis but there were 2 in Coral Gables near UM which sounded interesting. The first at 5830 Leonardo was really quite nice and...Continue Reading!
