The city of Coral Gables is hosting it's 9th annual "jazztronomical arts festival" this weekend. If you've never experienced it, you're missing out! The Carnaval on the Mile is well regarded as a fun time for all and a premiere showcase of Latin Jazz. The event takes place on the famed Miracle Mile in Coral Gables the first weekend in March. Miracle Mile is the mile from LeJeune Road to Douglas Road on what would otherwise be Coral Way. It's a mile long walk of exclusive shops, restaurants, cafes, the Miracle Mile Theater and more. There's plenty for the family to do starting Friday, March 6th and the activities continue on Saturday and Sunday. Art displays, sculptures, crafts, lots of food and drinks and lots of live performances all weekend long. The event is free as are all the perfo...

The 11th Annual Carnaval on the Mile, part of Carnaval Miami – a three day event, begins this Friday night, March 6th at 7pm.  It's a "fusion of Jazz & Art" and continues throughout the weekend.  It's kickoff begins at the Ponce Circle Park, 2800 Ponce de Leon Blvd in Coral Gables, Florida.   Like a Mardi Gras carnival, but with a Latin flair, it's a big latin party all weekend, beginning Friday night March 6 at 7pm and covering the entire street of Coral Way on Miracle Mile. Some 30 bands from New Orleans, New York, San Fransisco & Miami will be performing on 3 different stages. Some local schools also participate, and 2 years ago, my son Casey's school Jazz Band performed there. Gourmet food from local Coral Gables restaurants will delight your senses, an Artists Village will be set u...

Recently I took a trip to run the Miami Marathon and the first person I met upon arriving in Miami Beach was Janie Coffey of Papillon Real Estate.  Janie came out for a few hours and introduced us to the unique atmosphere of the Lincoln Road area where we spent quite a bit of time during our stay on South Beach.  During our dinner discussion we learned that the Miami area although currently depressed offers a great opportunity for anyone with vision that is considering relocating into the area.  This year the New England Winter seems exceptionally long and the thought of a warmer climate crosses many minds.  If you are thinking of retirement or relocating to Southern Florida in the next few years it might be wise to contact Janie Coffey and accelerate your plan to pick up a home at toda...

Fairchild Gardens in Coral Gables, Florida Today I went to Fairchild Gardens to see the annual Chocolate Festival. Yummm! There were people all over the place eating all kinds of chocolate foods... chocolate churros (Cuban version of a donut or funnel cake), chocolate fruits, chocolate candies. You can only imagine! People were learning how to make chocolate, listening  to lectures on the history of chocolate, visiting the Chocolate Spa & exploring the rainforest to learn how chocolate grows and sample yummy chocolate delights. There were cooking demonstrations, tastings, plant sales and lectures all over the gardens. It was truly a lovely 74 degrees day in sunny Coral Gables, Florida. Doesn't it look like everyone is having a great time? For those of  you unfamiliar with Fairchild Gard...

      Establishing the correct price for your home when you first put it on the market has even greater importance if you are selling a million-dollar-plus property. Buyers who are shopping in a high-end market are likely to be well educated in real estate protocol, and well aware of how other properties are priced. If a luxury home is overpriced by a quarter of a million dollars, a qualified buyer will probably look elsewhere, or wait for you to drop the price. What features can legitimately push the listing price to the top of its range? Generous square footage in the house and on the lot, a glorious view, lakefront or oceanfront access or a glamorous history all add up to a winning listing.      The amenities must be equal to or better than those of neighboring homes in the same cate...

Gables Park Tower - Merrick designed the downtown commercial district to be only four blocks wide and more than two miles (3 km) long. The main artery bisected the business district. Merrick could boast that every business in Coral Gables was less than a two-block walk. The old electric trolley system was replaced by the popularity of modern automobiles; today a new free circulator trolley system, initiated in November, 2003, that runs down Ponce de León Boulevard is in operation. Coral Gables is known as a pedestrian-friendly destination. Located only four miles from Miami International Airport, the 'City Beautiful' boasts more than 140 dining establishments and gourmet shops, plus many notable international retailers. Among the beautiful and distinctive landmarks in Coral Gables are t...
