Congrats on Adam Kapit’s 1st Sale

Flamenco Unit 905

2BR Unit 905 in Flamenco Tower Sells for Highest Price in 2014

Just wanted to congratulate my brother, Adam Kapit, on his first closed deal since becoming a licensed real estate agent. It was a tough transition from equity trading to real estate but he is a quick learner, has a lot of knowledge of the area and has an amazing network. The sale was pretty impressive as he listed a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1150sf condo at #3701 North Country Club Drive in Aventura for $299k. The condo overlooked the Turnberry Golf Club and was a gem of a unit. He priced it well above the comps (the owner was very tough, LOL) but with some aggressive marketing and fantastic photography was able to get the property in front of some very interested buyers. Bottom Line: He had the condo under contract within one week for cash and it is the highest priced 2-bedroom unit to sell in the building thus far for 2014 (by almost $60,000). If you are looking for a well-mannered, completely professional agent to handle your real estate needs, give Adam a call. Yes, he’s my brother and yes I’m a bit biased, but the kid has got the skills, the mindset and the attitude to get deals done! Congrats bro, keep it up!

5-acre Estate in Parkland’s Country Acres

5201 Godfrey RoadNestled off of Wiles Road in Parkland is a little sliver of a community known as Country Acres.  You might pass this one-street community if  you aren’t looking but you would be missing a street filled with lush foliage, sprawling estates, and possibly a family of peacocks showcasing their colorful canopies.  Recently, I listed one of the most private estates within Country Acres, located at 5201 Godfrey Road, Parkland FL 33067.  The 5-acre compound is a vacation all its own, hidden Read the rest of this entry »

The Importance of Enlisting a Great Realtor

Call a RealtorI am entering my 16th year in the mortgage industry and one thing I learned a long time ago is the importance of having a good realtor representing you in a transaction.  Whether you are a buyer or seller it is important to hire an experienced professional who not only knows the market well but will look out for your best interests and not just their own.

When it comes to purchasing a new home, some people think that a realtor’s only responsibility involves searching for homes for them on the computer and then driving them around town to view the homes that they like.  Some will say “well I can do that myself and Read the rest of this entry »

“To be able to sell this non-golf, non-waterfront Parkland Golf & Country Club home for what is now the new high price (last 6 years) for all resale, non-custom homes, is quite a feat.  The typical buyer in the community wants the golf view, so the privacy of this home did present a few challenges.  Through exceptional  marketing and attention  to detail, we were able to navigate and find the perfect Buyer.  Everyone wins!”

The Top 4 Reasons Why Now Is The Time To Buy

It's time to buyAs we enter the season of spring, which is when the real estate market heats up, I wanted to provide you with the top 4 reasons why I think now is the time to buy.

#1Interest Rates

We all know that interest rates have been at historic lows for years now but 2014 was supposed to be the year that rates shot up and as a result would cool the red hot housing market.  This may still prove to be true later this year but as the 1st quarter comes to a close this has simply not been the case.  Rates have Read the rest of this entry »
