Barbara & Sue's View!

Congratulations to Barbara & Sue on their recent purchase and successful closing in South Florida.  Here is way they had to say-




“Hi Jon-Can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for us in both finding the ‘perfect’ condo and helping us with all of our needs ever since.  (By the way, we are still very needy…)  We did have a blast shopping with you.  What could have been a really stressful process was not only fulfilling, but fun.  We’ll be in touch!  Barbara Rosenblum & Sue Krumm

Americas on the Park

I had shared this previously, but we’ve just had a price reduction to $229,900.  This is a 2/2/.5 condo located at Americas on Park, 777 Bayshore Drive.  This wonderful building sits on the Intracoastal Waterway at the edge of Birch State Park in Fort Lauderdale and is only 3 blocks from the white sandy and sunny beaches of Fort Lauderdale.  Features include a split bedroom plan and over 2000 square feet of living space.  Building has had many recent improvements and is financially sound.  Beautiful pool area, dockage available and so much more!  This is a STEAL in today’s market, the last unit in the building sold for $360,000 less than a month ago in original condition.  Click here for more details, and please be sure to share with anyone you know that might be interested!  (Please note this must be a cash deal because it needs a kitchen)

Another satisfied client…

“Thank you for your assistance in the purchase of our Florida residence.  From my initial contact through closing, you were my advocate in the transaction.  I especially appreciated your responsiveness to my requests.  You were highly organized and helped me sort through all of the properties we were interested in, providing us the necessary information to make a final selection after just one trip to Ft. Lauderdale.  I would certainly recommend you without qualification to a potential buyer or seller.”
