A Facts and Trends report by TrendGraphix published in December 2012 places One Sotheby’s International Realty firmly on the top sales in Miami-Dade County from 2006-2012. The achievement is remarkable, considering that One Sotheby’s International was founded in 2008 and in 4 years has become a leader in the luxury market, bolstered, in part, by its affiliation with the worldwide Sotheby’s brand. A dedicated team of professionals with international connections has also contributed to the agency’s success.
Agents come from all over and speak over a dozen languages. According to the 2012 World Wealth Report, the Miami real estate market is considered 1 out of 3 super prime markets in the U.S. — along with New York and Los Angeles — for any buyer looking to spend at least $20 million on a home. Miami far exceeded that price range, with homes sold well over the $20 million mark.
ONE Sir’s TRENDS magazine also offered some insight on the rise of the luxury market in 2012. From the publication:
“The rise of the super luxury market in South Florida is the break-out story of 2012. While the number of all residential transactions in Broward and Miami-Dade stayed nearly flat from 2011 to 2012, with fewer than 1% more sales year over year, the luxury market took off. South Florida is still valued tremendously low as far as dollar per square foot in the worldwide luxury real estate market, yet gains prominence and importance, year after year.”
