Venice in the Gables Art Exhibit

If you have driven through downtown Coral Gables lately, I’m sure you are wondering what those big colorful poles on the sidewalks are. They are actually part of a temporary art exhibit called Venice in the Gables that is celebrating the completion of the renovation of Miracle Mile.

These eight-foot works of art are inspired by the Venetian poles that were used as canal markers in the early designs of the City of Coral Gables. They were also used to add to the design of the Venetian Pool. Each of these poles from the city’s early beginnings has been given a modern twist. Many different native artists have brought their own fresh and colorful interpretations.

There are 33 poles sponsored by all different people and companies in Coral Gables. In fact, the pole located on 201 Alhambra Circle called Tutti Fruiti Tropical Beauty was sponsored by our very own EWM Realty International. These hand-painted poles have brought a unique blend of history and new art to the vibrant downtown area of Coral Gables. Go take a peek before time is up!

We’re #1!

Bragging about myself makes me uncomfortable. But bragging about my company, EWM Realty International? That is something that I am glad to do! There are a lot of reasons for me to boast about EWM, but I think that one of the most impressive is that in 2017 we were the top broker in Coral Gables, Pinecrest, Area 41 (comprised of Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, part of Brickell, and a few other neighborhoods), and Area 51 (South Gables, East of Old Cutler). These are some ultra-competitive neighborhoods and EWM is blowing other brokerages out of the water. Check out the Coral Gables chart shown above: EWM sold twice as much as our closest competitor! Obviously 2017 was a great year to be a realtor at EWM and I know that 2018 is only going to be better!

The New and Lovely Giralda Plaza

While you will often find me dining on Miracle Mile, in Merrick Park, or somewhere in Coconut Grove, I had not been out to eat on Giralda in quite some time. I recently went to the ever-reliable Bangkok Bangkok, located on what is now the Giralda Plaza, and I really loved how Coral Gables has transformed the area! What was once a typical street has been closed off to traffic and is now a beautiful pedestrian corridor surrounded by shops and restaurants, restaurants that can now serve their diners outside in a lovely atmosphere. There was even live music playing when I visited! I always recommend Bangkok Bangkok but go check out Talavera and Mesa Mar as well.

If you have not been to the new Giralda Plaza, treat yourself to an evening out!

Miami’s Best Pizza is Back!

I can almost smell it!

I can’t tell you how much I used to love Miami’s Best Pizza and how sad I was the day that it closed back in 2014!! We would get a pizza from Miami’s Best at least once a week and it was something my whole family could agree on! Sunday night was normally the night for a large pepperoni and onion pizza and a side salad. So it really hit the Cusack family hard the day it closed.

But 2018 will bring great things and one of those is the comeback of Miami’s Best Pizza!!! The new pizza place will be next to Titanic Brewing just down the street from the University of Miami! A new year’s resolution of mine is to try to be a positive force in the world and I feel like I am doing that by celebrating this momentous occasion, despite the fact that I have gone gluten free since it closed WAH WAH! Anyway, for all of you glutenous people that can enjoy this wonderful pizza, I will celebrate!

What does the New Tax Bill Mean for Local Real Estate?

Love it or hate it, the new tax bill passed and we are all going to feel its effects. Real estate is going to be impacted just like everything else, but in South Florida it looks like the tax bill will be a good thing! A client shared an article from Local 10 that does a great job of summarizing what the new bill means for realtors, homeowners, renters, and our local economy. Click here to learn more about it.

Millennials Are Buying Homes Because of Their Dogs – Not Their Children or Marriages

This is fur real, believe it or not, roughly one-third of recent homebuyers ages 18 to 36 said a desire to have more room for their pets influenced their decision to buy their first home! As a true dog lover, I get it although I can’t say I have bought a house for my dog, (obviously just outside the millennial window)! A recent survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of SunTrust Mortgage found that 33 percent of millennial home buyers’ decisions to buy a home was driven chiefly by their dog. Furry friends outranked wedding bells (25 percent cited marriage as their top motivator for buying a home) and kids, too (only 19 percent said the birth of a child was their prime incentive). The survey also found that 42% of Millennials who had never bought a home said that their dog, or the desire to have one, would be a key factor in their decision to becoming a homeowner.

Is Mercury Retrograde?

When I am having a tough week I always wonder if Mercury is retrograde. Today I Googled it, and, as you can see from the picture above, I am clearly not the only one who is asking the same question! No, Mercury is currently not retrograde and, according to www.ismercuryinretrograde.com, Something else must be bumming [me] out . . . That is correct! Appraisals are bumming me out! Those that should come in high have been low, and those that should be low have come in astonishingly high. Maybe we will have better luck when Mercury is retrograde? One can only hope!

The Importance of Giving Back

I recently attended the Luxury Portfolio Conference on Miami Beach, and one entire morning was spent talking about giving back. I absolutely love that this topic was given so much importance in a high-end luxury real estate seminar. I have always believed in giving back and find that it is one of the most important aspects of my life, whether I am coaching lacrosse, volunteering with the Junior League Foundation or Beaux Arts, or serving on my church’s vestry.

My high school motto was “what we keep we lose, and only what we give remains our own.” I still believe in this mantra and I continue to try to live that way! I am so glad that the real estate community worldwide is buying into this!
