Once my buyer zeroed in on a few homes, she really started to analyze the information I had given her...Continue Reading!

We are finally getting Bayfront Park cleaned up, but wouldn't it be amazing to have waterfront access for runners, walkers, and bikers that weaves from Bayfront to the Miami River and then connected to the soon-to-be-built Underline and the path to Key Biscayne?Continue Reading!
