Feng Shui

As a realtor I have heard a lot about feng shui over the years, but today I had a first. I showed my listing at 5527 SW 87th Street to a couple who actually brought their feng shui specialist with them! Good news: the house ticked off all of the requisite boxes to be considered feng shui!

You probably have a basic concept of feng shui, which is the Chinese concept of orienting your home (or another building, monument, etc.) and the contents of your home in an auspicious way. In theory I know what the practice is, but having now met an actual specialist, it is much more complicated and involved than I actually knew.

After my showing, I Googled “feng shui” to write this blog and . . . wow! There is so much to know! I started reading a Wikipedia article on the matter and it was very detailed and included the various schools of feng shui and I could not even begin to narrow it down to a bite-sized blog. Then I found a much easier to understand article on thespruce.com, “Some Basic Principles of Feng Shui,” that boils it down quite succinctly. Read the article by clicking here.

The article gives you some good insight on the ancient practice, and I think that author Rodika Tchi summed it up nicely with this paragraph: “Feng shui is sometimes thought to be the art of placement—understanding how the placement of yourself and objects within a space affects your life in various areas of experience. It is a complex body of knowledge that teaches you how to balance and harmonize with the energies in any given space—be it a home, office, or garden. Its aim is to assure good fortune for the people inhabiting a space. Although regarded by some in the scientific community as a pseudo-science, feng shui has had an impact on the aesthetics of interior design and the architectural layout of living and working spaces both in its native eastern and, more recently, western cultures.”

Enjoy reading the fascinating article, and if you want to see feng shui in Miami, come to my listing at 5527 SW 87th Street. You will not be disappointed!

The Future is Here in Miami

Did you know that Ford is testing self-driving cars in Miami? The company announced that Miami is going to be the first large-scale testing site of its driver-less fleet of cars. Why Miami, you ask? Well, the city has very challenging traffic but other factors like, “its weather, its variety of driving environments — from its densely packed downtown to its more residential exurbs — and the receptiveness of city officials to the new technology,” according to the Miami Herald.

There will be two fleets of self-driving cars hitting our streets, one group will be mapping and perfecting the technology and the other is going to deliver pizzas! Ford has paired up with Domino’s to test that service: I think it will be interesting for my gluten-free pizza to be delivered without the delivery man.

Ford is not giving too many specifics, so we do not really know exactly when the driver-less fleets are going to roll out, nor do we know exactly where the cars will be housed. What we do know is that there will be a human inside of these cars just in case something goes wrong, which I think is a smart idea.

If driver-less cars are going to help with Miami’s traffic, then I am happy for our city to be Ford’s guinea pig. What do you think about this new technology?

FPL’s Coconut Grove-Galloway Project

FPL is in the process of replacing the poles that support the power lines running along Ponce de Leon Boulevard from Red Road all the way to Douglas and Bird roads. Dubbed the Coconut Grove-Galloway project, this effort is designed to strengthen the power grid by installing taller, stronger poles, thereby making power restoration faster and more efficient after a major storm. At the outset of the project, people complained that the taller poles were going to be an eye sore, but after spending many, many power-less days after Irma, I am hoping that what seems to be inevitable becomes a positive.

I actually called FPL to ask them about the project and how much longer they expect it to take. They could not give me any definitive completion date because they said that their resources are still spread thin after the hurricane. Although that was sort of a non-answer, I have to say that I was impressed by FPL’s responsiveness on the phone. I called and someone immediately picked up. When I told him that I wanted more information about the Coconut Grove-Galloway project, he told me that he was not the right person to give me that information but that he would have someone call me. I rolled my eyes upon hanging up because surely they would never call me back! Five minutes later the power company proved me wrong because Miguel rang and told me all that he could about the new power poles on Ponce. Nice work, FPL!

I am sorry for that little digression, but I really was impressed. I hope that the Coconut Grove-Galloway pole installation project delivers on its promises and makes power restoration a breeze in the future.

What are those Yellow Bikes?

Has anyone else noticed the bright yellow bicycles that have been popping up all over South Miami? It seems like they just fell from the sky one night and were suddenly everywhere! I keep driving past them, so I had to learn more. Fortunately all it took was a Google search for “yellow bikes Miami,” and I learned all about Ofo, a station-free bike sharing service.

Unlike Citibikes, which has a fixed point where you pick up and return a rental bike, these Ofo bikes can be left anywhere, so long as it is a legal place to park your 2-wheeled transportation. If people are renting bikes and leaving them just anywhere then you might wonder how you find an Ofo. Well, as the old commercial goes, “there’s an app for that!” Simply download the Ofo app, look for a bike near you, then when you are ready to ride, scan the bike’s QR code, and go. Ofo charges $1 per hour for their service, which is a steal! So grab your helmet and take a spin on an Ofo bike!

South Miami Home for Sale on the Ludlum Trail

I have just listed a wonderful 55,844 square foot property with a lovely 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom home at 7643 SW 71 Avenue. One of the most unique things about this property is its central location that feels so remote and, most importantly, that it backs up to the Ludlum Trail. What is the Ludlum Trail, you ask? It is a 100 foot wide, 6.2 mile long trail that runs from Dadeland Station to Miami International Airport. “Running right through the heart of Miami-Dade County, the Ludlam Trail is a community investment set to connect thousands of Miamians and enhance their quality of life,” said Javier Alberto Soto, president and CEO of The Miami Foundation.

Most of this property is abandoned Florida East Coast Railway right of way that has been debated greatly over the years as to whether it should be developed or used as a park. It seems that it has finally gotten approval and has received support from the Knight Foundation and the Miami Foundation to become a beautiful park with bike and walking paths through it. What a great win for the neighborhood, which will now have a top rated beautification project behind these homes.

As a runner, I can’t wait to enjoy this great stretch of land and I am sure there are many families and bikers feeling the same way!

If you want to enjoy this lovely home or build your dream home visit my website at www.7643sw71avenue.com.

For more detailed information on the Ludlum Trail visit ludlamtrail.org and view the Ludlum Trail Aerial Footage on YouTube.

South Miami Rotary Art Festival – This Weekend!

Did you forget about last weekend’s Coconut Grove Arts Festival? Or did you not want to pay the entrance fee just to fight the crowds? Either way you are in luck because this weekend is the South Miami Rotary Art Festival. This free annual event includes 150 artists, delicious fair food, and live entertainment.

Though the South Miami festival is not as large as the one in the Grove, I do prefer it. The Grove Arts Festival is just so crowded that I feel like I get swept past many of the booths that I’d love to visit. In South Miami, though, I am always able to admire each tent’s artwork and to get to know the artists. Over the years I have found out that many of the artists do both events, so I never feel like I am missing out by not heading to the Grove during Presidents’ Day Weekend.

If you would like more details about the February 20-21 event, head on over to their website at southmiamiartfest.org. I hope to see you out there, but if I happen to be elbow-deep in a bucket of kettle corn, then feel free to look the other way!
