Welcome to my blog! Here I will share news, ideas and tips about living it up in luxury in Miami. It’s not that hard to do. Miami is a young, vibrant city full of culture and diversity. It makes it the perfect place to live, enjoy and relax. There’s always something happening around town, a little bit of everything for the most refined of tastes. I hope to give you a little insight into the beauty and fun that is Miami and its surrounding areas.

I have worked in real estate in this market for over 10 years, I live and play here. So whatever you’re looking for, you may just find it here in Miami. There’s more to Miami than it’s beautiful beaches and people. Miami is ever-evolving with new cultural experiences at every turn. There is no other city in the United States quite like Miami. We have people from all over the world settling here daily, bringing with them the richness of their culture. That makes Miami a world-class city. Come back weekly for my scoop on the fun and business of living here.
