Ian Schrager’s Take on “The Bubble.”

Did you catch this interview with Ian Schrager on Bloomberg Business? The press speaks of bubbles all the time and it’s great viewing; I believe we will see a correction, but not to the magnitude that we saw during the market downturn. Personally, I feel the impact more in the residential market than the commercial market. When we see a fluctuations in the economies of foreign countries whose citizens invest in our neighborhoods, we will see a shift in our sales. On a positive note, more Americans are buying and we are seeing investors from countries like China and Saudi Arabia come to our market. We also have and will continue to have a new commercial infrastructure component. This will drive people to the area to live and work. What do you think? Is our market booming or busting?...

Relocating? Let Me Be “Your Person”

    Moving to a new city can be so exciting and also a bit challenging if you don’t know the ins and outs of the city. I have lived in many cities over the years and always wished I had a go to person to show me the most simple things like where to find the dry cleaner, grocery store, and nail salon.  Sometimes it takes a while to make new friends who can give you an understanding of the neighborhoods in your area, helping you to find the best physicians, museums, restaurants, and theaters. When I began my real estate business, I took the approach that we are lifestyle specialists. I wanted to make sure that every person moving here would have a great start to their new lives. We begin every relationship by understanding what is most important to that person/people and what may be causing the most stress and anxiety with the move. Whether a move for business from out of the country or a move for a person beginning their career, everyone has different priorities and stressors. Truly listening and understanding those triggers makes the moving experience a positive one for all. It gives me a sense of joy to know that our newest neighbors will have all the right tools to begin their lives here. Most recently, I was introduced to a family member of a business associate moving here from Boston. It was during the Jewish holidays and I invited her to share the holiday with my friends and family. Everyone should be with friends during a holiday. This was our first meeting, but I know that this small amount of hospitality made a big difference in her life. Working in real estate has given me the gift to help people and truly impact their lives. My years in the fashion business helped me hone my ability to listen and serve, and now I can apply those skills to the needs of people relocating to the South Florida area. My network of resources and my knowledge of the real estate market has made me a great ambassador to the city for all that I meet. If I can be a resource to you, it would be my pleasure.
