Performance Art Incites Love and Hate

 I attended a Nadia Beugre dance performance this past weekend on Stage Black Box at the Miami-Dade County Auditorium. Nadia, choreographer and dancer, performed Quartiers Libres, a French expression meaning “free territory” or “limitless space”.  It was strange and unfamiliar, confusing and angry and expressive, wild and intense.  Everything about the performance screamed freedom from oppression, from the tangled microphone cable strangling […]

Lakefront Condo Sold

Congratulations to my seller who recently closed on her lakefront penthouse apartment.

Shilla Korean BBQ

Thinking about what to do after over-dosing on turkey leftovers? Go Korean!  We discovered Sushi Café Shilla Korean BBQ over the Thanksgiving weekend, a family style restaurant with warm service and very good food. We skipped over the sushi and went straight for the Korean bbq, replete with in-table hibachi style cooking referred to as the “ondol.”  Side dishes of marinated mushrooms, […]

The number of months supply of housing inventory is the most important metric in the real estate business and the key to understanding housing market value trends. The optimum number of months supply ranges between six and nine months.  Once the number of months supply falls below six months, the value of homes and condos increase. […]

Just Closed on Another Townhouse

Its been a great run for Wellins Dwellings this year.  I’ve had four closings in three months, all smooth as silk, happy buyers and sellers and personally, a most satisfied feeling. My clients and I work closely through the process of buying and selling their homes and we get to know each other quite well, becoming extended family, so […]

This unit backs up to a beautiful private garden area designed for meeting and greeting neighbors while walking the dog (or not). The kitchen was updated five years ago with gorgeous marble counter tops and under-counter lighting, a […]
