Miami is a heady cocktail of tropical sun, surf, sports, art and culture, amazing retail, mouth-watering cuisine, fantastic skyscraper condos and sybaritic homes. Miami is a world class hub of commerce and tourism and an extraordinary city in which to live and invest. Blessed with a warm climate year-round, it is in fact one of America’s fastest growing urban centres - yet with prices well below those of other large cosmopolitan cities such as New York, Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
We are able to offer access to all developments and resale properties in South Florida including Miami, Miami Beach, South Beach, Ft.

The epicentre of development is now in the downtown Miami neighbourhoods of Brickell, Edgewater and The Design District. Over 23,000 condos and more than 78 buildings have been constructed in these areas in the last eight years. Brickell is the thriving heart of the “new” Miami metropolis. With its glittering residential and office towers, Brickell Avenue has been called the Park Avenue of the South. The new $1 billion Brickell City Centre currently under construction will be the commercial and residential centre of downtown.
Edgewater is fast becoming one of Miami’s most trendy and sought-after neighbourhoods, boasting stunning views of Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Average prices for condos built after 2003 have since soared. Buoying Edgewater’s popularity is its proximity to the Design District and to Wynwood.
