    Super Bowl XLI will take place in Miami on Sunday, February 4, 2007 in Dolphin Stadium.  This will be the 9th time in Miami (4th time at the Dolphin's Stadium and the other 5 at the Orange Bowl).The Super Bowl is known for so many things.... the incredible commercials, the halftime shows (which by the way will be Prince this year), the beautiful Vince Lombardi Super Bowl trophy, designed by Tiffany & Co., and of course the actual game.  I personally had never known the impact this one game has on the host city.  Miami is a madhouse right now.  People are renting places at extravagant prices, coming from all over the nation.  Did you know that there are rental agents that specialize in the Superbowl?The Super Bowl also has a Community Outreach program which brings much more than foot...

Selling an empty condo unit is not an easy task.  Ideally a seller will follow the advice of his/her Realtor and will hire a Stager to furnish and make the unit more marketable.  When staging is not an option, a rendered floor plan is always a good idea.  Sometimes developers will create furnished floor plans that are used as sales materials, but other times, Realtors need to resort to other creative methods, like hiring a draftsperson, architect or designer that can render the boring floor plans.We currently have a listing in a brand new complex called The Preserve, just South of Miami Shores.  The unit has never been lived in and although in a great location, it is empty, the walls and carpeting are light beige, and buyers have a difficult time visualizing the space. This is what the ...

For all you Northerners, you may think that Miami has no winter, but I want to explain to you that although it is not cold, locals, for the most part, do not swim here during Winter.  If you go to the beach during winter and see people swimming or water skiing, most of those will be tourists enjoying the non-freezing waters of South Florida.Today we decided to go boating to take a visitor friend of ours around the tourist attractions inside Biscayne Bay.  The temperature started in the 50's and went up to the high 60's, the day was beautiful, but the breeze was pretty chilly and we kept our coats on.To own a boat in Miami you don't need to live on the water.  The options are endless, you can keep your boat at a marina or you can trailor your boat to one of the many boat ramps around Mia...

For a Miami Native,  I see the this Condo Market a beautiful opportunity to find the Dream Condo that once might have been out of reach for the Real Estate professional.  With a saturated Condo market on the rise,  the buyer has the upper hand on negotiating the final price. Deals are already in place for the buyer who wishes to live in their purchase.  Make it a great choice!!! Call thomas for great opportunities @305.527.2022

I have written posts about cultural places to visit in Miami like the Center for the Performing Arts or The Museum of Contemporary Art.  From one of those posts Peter Andres gave me a great idea to write about places to shop in Miami.  As you will see from this list, there are numerous Shopping Malls in Miami-Dade County.  These are a few of the shopping centers which range from high end open-air malls to the regular all-American enclosed mall with all the Major National and International Chains.  Aventura Mall:  19501 Biscayne Boulevard, Aventura.  This is an enclosed mall with all the shopping you ever wanted.  It is one of the most popular shopping locations in Miami. Bal Harbour Shops:  9700 Collins Avenue, Surfside.  Bal Harbour Shops are known Internationally for the high end shop...
