New York headquartered Prudential Douglas Elliman reached all the way to the Florida market last week for two monster sales.
Oren Alexander, of The Alexander Group, co-brokered the sale of a $47 million home in Indian Creek Village, Florida — the most expensive single-family home sale in Miami-Dade County history.
And Manhattan-based PDE agent Victoria Logvinsky facilitated a $24.55 million condo referral sale in Bal Harbour – the largest intercompany referral in the history of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
“This just goes to show that the power of the Elliman Brand is growing,” said Douglas Elliman president and CEO Dottie Herman. “We go where our clients want to purchase homes, and we are setting new records in the process.”
Alexander — who’s just put an $8 million penthouse on West 56th Street under contract — worked his Florida deal for six months, repping both the seller and the un-named Russian buyer.
The modern, 10-bedroom, 18,000 s/f home sits on a private gated island, one of the most coveted residential communities in the country.
“This is an incredible property and South Florida is a booming market — we’re seeing prices we’ve never seen before,” said Alexanderr, whose team includes brother Tal Alexander, Benjamin Seiter, Alexander Bank, Sean McPeak, Ana Knoll and Anya Labonville.
Meanwhile, PDE’s Victoria Logvinsky worked with Senada Adzem of Douglas Elliman Florida Brokerage on the sale of five units at the St. Regis Bal Harbour, which officially opened its doors in January.
Considered as one unit, the deal is the second-largest condo sale in Miami-Dade County and the largest single transaction at the St. Regis Bal Harbour. The units collectively total 16,450 s/f of living space.
“My buyer was initially interested in purchasing a single unit, but after seeing the property decided to invest in five,” said Logvinsky. “I was very pleased to have the ability to collaborate with our Florida office that had the local expertise.”
