Ten Sales this Week in South Brickell: For years, the Southern end of Brickell Avenue between 15th Road and the Key Biscayne Causeway, was the only image that came to mind when anyone talked about Brickell Condos.  Most all of the buildings are waterfront and were built between 1963 and 2001, the majority in the 80’s and 90’s. Now considered the more quiet and residential part of Brickell, these buildings, though older have a lot to offer in comparison to the newer construction...Continue Reading!

Right now at Brickell Bay Club there are only three condos for sale out of a total of 452 in the building. Even if most of them were for sale we think we’d want to buy this one. It was designed and renovated to maximize the space and the views and as the award winning architect and designer Rene Gonzales says himself, “I wanted the materials to reflect the light, the sky and the water.” And do they ever, which...Continue Reading!

Brickell Condo Blog | The Riley Smith Group

You know your system is working well when both buyer and seller are thrilled.  In the case of Unit 2507 at the Imperial, the Seller was only interested in selling if the price included some future value as he is very bullish on the Miami Real Estate Market.  To add some complexity to the sale, he decided to refinance just as we listed his property for sale and so it could not be in the MLS. One week later the...Continue Reading!

Brickell Condo Blog | The Riley Smith Group

The February 2013 numbers are in!   Where possible we’ve compared them with February 2012 to show trends.  A short month with very strong growth.  Have a look for yourself: The number of sales this February vs. last February is exactly the same.  Our initial reaction was skeptical until we started crunching the numbers.  Then things started to get very interesting. Average List Price being up only indicates a Seller’s confidence in the market.  But when Average Sale Price is up 16% and...Continue Reading!

It's not surprising that seven of the available condos are in the Icon Brickell Complex, since there are over 1800...Continue Reading!

Lush Life, the jazz standard sung by the likes of  Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald and recently Queen Latifa, is the song that comes to mind immediately as you enter the private elevator foyer of unit 4205.  The first thing you notice as you step into the apartment is that the ceiling have been raised to 11 feet.  The effect is powerful as you take in the commanding views of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean to the East and Brickell...Continue Reading!
