Brickell is again a hot zone to buy real estate.

In the condos, we studied both the prices and the volume of sales is up. This is very rare.

What usually happens is that when prices go down, sales go up, and vice-versa. Logic right? But almost completely the opposite happened this time!

Why? Because the demand is upon them and the supply is these condos are not high so it drives prices higher. We can see for example that in the Asia condo sales are up 400%, even if the price/sqft also went up by 31.93%. We can notice this tendency in 6 out of 8 buildings.

Overall the sales in these Brickell condos rose 10.22% with a price/sqft increase of 6.86%.

This is very good news for the upcoming year. Despite all the new construction, Brickell condo living has not lost its appeal !


So I had the option of telling you about all the events this month or telling you about my favorite one. From November 23th to January 6th, Fairchild has transformed into an illuminated experience for visitors and locals of all ages!

Lighting displays, special effects, motion sensing technology, holographic butterflies and floating orchids are just a few of all the surprises that this yearly event has to offer.

Celebrating its 80th anniversary, Fairchild Garden is offering this night attraction as a new way to have this family time we are all willing to have! I was mesmerized about the experience. By the way, you should be the first one to enter the garden to get the full experience so go around 5.30pm or later around 9 pm when the crowds have left.


Just by knowing the masterminds that are behind this amazing restaurant, we know it would be amazing. Located in the Design District, Swan is our monthly suggestion for you.

Pharrell Williams, yeah that Pharell, and David Grutman, had opened this past month the most exquisite restaurant/bar in Miami. A what can we wait with a top chef as Jean Imbert in charge? Well, only a chic cuisine with a varied menu from flavors of all around the world. Don't miss the delicious charred octopus and the exquisite yellowfin tuna.

The interior decor does not lag behind! With a 2-floor structure, Swan is located on the first floor, leaving the top one to Bevy Bar, with a sensual vibe, this bar is an amazing place to stay after having a great meal and have a handcrafted cocktail. It is just a place where you want to stay all night!
