Laugh for a Cause

Siena's Story

Laugh It Up for SMS

Check out Sienna’s Story

As the father of an 8 year old little girl with special needs, I learned early on that a good sense of humor makes the daily challenges easier to manage. In June 2006, my wife and I weren’t sure if we would ever laugh again. We received the devastating news that our precious first born child, Sienna, had a chromosomal abnormality known as Smith-Magenis Syndrome. She was only four weeks old and had just gotten off of a ventilator following open heart surgery. Read the rest of this entry »

Kapit Sells Stonegate Lot #6 in PG&CC

Lot 6 StonegateLot #6 in Parkland Golf & Country Club fetches $625,000

Wind back the clock just a few years ago, picturesque lots, fronting the fantastic PG&CC Greg Norman designed golf course, sat lifeless, waiting for the market to pick up.  Many of the homeowners, friends of mine, clients of mine, wondered when the opportune time might be to snap up these last few treasures.  Well, time has a way of healing and after my latest sale, very few (less than a handful) luxury lots remain.  The sales price reflects a major upswing in valuation and Read the rest of this entry »

Hard At Work, MLS Doesn’t Tell The Whole Story

Work HarderBack in Town From a Much Needed Trip to Maine

My apologies for the lack of recent posts … just getting in some R & R in Maine, visiting the kids in camp, hanging with friends (old and new) and recharging, in anticipation of a blockbuster 4th quarter in luxury residential real estate. The summers are always a little quieter for me, so I use this time to reflect on Q1 & 2, tweak the model (as necessary), and Read the rest of this entry »

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!
