If you are reading this, you are probably looking for an agent to help you with a real estate transaction in Brickell in Miami and seek a urban living lifestyle in Miami. Brickell in Miami has become synonymous with Miami urban living, full of dining and entertainment options near work and a cosmopolitan energetic destination with exciting people from around the world. After a record breaking 2021-2022 Brickell real estate market, you may be asking yourself?
As you seek to buy a new condo, you will likely have some pretty straightforward needs, including:
Most people know a realtor, with buyers or sellers often hiring a person that is close to them, in some cases feeling obliged to hire that family member or friend without questioning their skills. This used to work fine when the role of the realtor was just to make a few calls, show properties and contact third parties. A top Brickell realtor will make all the difference in your bank account as well as your mental health!
“Real estate has changed dramatically over the last 5 years. Technology and data surrounds us (i.e. virual tours, listing databases, facetime showings, eMarketing, etc) and a good agent has to master all these new technologies, be good at monetizing information and embed the human element and local knowledge on each transaction.”
As a buyer you would likely want to hire an agent who knows the market and the numbers, who can provide context and “on-the ground” perspective to the flood of data available through search engines; someone who understands where we are in the Miami real estate economic cycle, its previous bottom and peak prices so you can formulate your entry and exit price points. In other words: you need “trusted feet on the ground” , someone that understands your lifestyle needs and a real estate market analyst with access to data that will help make financial decisions.
And of course, a top realtor will also have relationships and access to contacts in Brickell buildings, inspection agents, appraisal agents, handyman’s, remodeling, staging and even other realtors that are willing to work with you in this competitive environment to get things done.
Brickell is synonymous with cosmopolitan urban living in Miami and the place to be if you want to walk to multiple dining and entertainment options, typically also close to work. You will also enjoy a vibrant and energetic neighborhood with water views, great condo options and an exciting mix of people from all around the world and different states around the nation. Brickell has developed in exciting ways over the last 15 years and that is why it’s important to consider the four major subdivisions in the Brickell neighborhood.
Brickell area got its name as buildings flourished along the Brickell avenue corridor. The area along Brickell avenue, between South Miami avenue (west) and the water (east), starting on the river and ending on 15th street is what we call Brickell central business district and what people tend to associate with the Brickell neighborhood. This is where you can find buildings like Flatiron, Icon, Plaza, Four Seasons, SLS, Echo, Bond, 1010, 1060, Jade, Brickell City Center, etc. It is also home to hotels like W, Conrad and JW Marrriott and most offices, shopping, bars and restaurants in Brickell.
South Brickell is a quiet residential area that starts on 15th street and encompasses all the condos along Brickell avenue all the way to the beggining of the Rickenbacker causeway that communciates to Key Biscayne. All of the condos lie between the ocean and Brickell avenue offering fantastic options in buildings like Santa Maria, Bristol, Skyline, Atlantis, Brickell place, etc. Recently ultra luxury preconstruction project like Una and St Regis have started construction in this area. There are also some smaller and less luxurious options on the west side of Brickell avenue.
As Brickell grew and land grew scarce, developers started building west of South Miami Avenue all the way to I-95. This area got a boost as The Miami Underline projects transforms the area below the Miami Metrorail and makes it safer and easier to walk, along South Miami Avenue. Here you can find buildings like LeParc, Brickell Ten, Miro and the upcoming 1 Southside Park at Brickell station as well as hotels like Novotel and Aloft.
Brickell Key is a delightful and exclusive small island, accessed via 7th street and is home to the Mandarin Oriental hotel as well as beautiful oceanfront buildings like Asia, Carbonell, Tequesta, Courts, Courvoisier, and several others. It offers spectacular waterfront views and half a mile panoramic path around the island as well as restaurants, grocery store and some offices. It has a more laidback and calmed vibe than Brickell CBD.
Brickell is probably the best, most dense neighborhood for urban living in Miami. But Brickell is far from the only one and with many new construction condo projects being developed through at least 2026, the picture is changing constantly. We can help you navigate this evolving condo landscape and explore Edgewater, Midtown and Downtown options as part of your Brickell and Miami Urban living buy or sell process.
We have studied the market for over fifteen years and understand the pro’s and the con’s of each moment within the real estate lifecycle. Among clients, readers and industry peers we are known as market analysts and our real estate blogs, videos, reports and forecasts have provided us with a prominent name in the Miami real estate industry. As market analysts we not only understand the numbers, but we understand the human behavior behind the numbers. Take a look at our reports and you will see it’s not just numbers; it’s a dialogue that explains the human behavior and macro-economic factors behind the data.
If knowledge is power then DSG could be considered the most powerful team of agents in Miami real estate, at least by analytical standards. We have been writing articles and supremely detailed ‘actionable’ reports (Including 2022 Brickell 3Bd under $1M Condos Vanishing in 2022, Brickell Key Market Update and Brickell 3 Bedroom Investment opportunity ) for over a decade now. I say actionable because our reports do not just give a bunch of arbitrary statistics, but actual actionable advice for buyers and sellers specific to their price point).
A buyer would want to hire the agent who knows the market, its numbers and makes sure you do not overpay for a property. Someone who will be able to understand what the numbers mean, where the trends point to and have the interpersonal skills to help navigate the emotional aspects of a purchase including negotiations as well as the key transaction points when deals fall through or can become more onerous.
Why limit yourself to listed Miami Real Estate homes if we can offer you so much more. Many of our clients bought a house that wasn’t even on the market. As a team we will go out of our way to find your dream house even if it means approaching owners of off-market properties. We have a large database of Miami Real Estate home owners and we often reach out to specific off-market properties upon request of potential buyers. Moreover as top producing Miami realtors we are constantly in contact with other agents communicating which new product is coming up and as a result we know about new properties before anyone else does.
Finally we would like to share our Market Analytics tools with you, tools that help us with creating our reports and that are one of the main reasons our site is so heavily trafficked and buyers trust our market knowledge. Here are the direct links for the Neighborhood Economic Health score and the Advanced Analytics. If you are looking to buy a Miami condo then using our Condo Geeks tool will be of the essence. Condo Geeks is a brand new and sophisticated tool, which is essentially a Bloomberg terminal for real estate. The tool empowers you to analyze entire neighborhoods, individual condos or a selection of condos. It provides users with the ability to look at the performance of a neighborhood / condo over time (amount of sales, prices per SF, discounts given and days on market) or to compare neighborhoods / condos to one another. It is essentially the best tool for consumers to see whether a market is going up, down or remains static and to select the best performing condo. This is really the most advanced tool we could deliver and will be extremely helpful in finding the best Miami Real Estate condos to invest in. Miami Real Estate condo investments have never been this smart!
Selling Brickell and Miami real estate in 2022, 2023 and beyond requires a strong, modern marketing mind. Someone who has a broad outreach, who talks to agents and buyers around the globe and does not limit him or herself to local Brickell and other Urban Living neighborhood residents and acquaintances.You need a Brickell real estate agent who does not rely on the MLS to have your property sold, but takes it the extra mile with videos, flyers and a large database of buyers.
Brickell is financial district and urban heart of the Miami metropolitan area, a global city where buyers, particularly since 2021, often come from out of town, so you don’t want to limit yourself to an agent whose reach is only hyper local; relocating is a big element and foreign buyers are a big factor. This is why we created the relocation campaigns, the annual reports and weekly blogs based on what people are searching for. 98% Of searches start online, so if you don’t have a strong digital footprint you are already behind. The best Brickell realtor is whomever has national and global reach for its listings and that is what we have to offer.
“Currently we attract around 25,000 visitors a month to our site and 100 new subscribers every week!
This is quite simply one of the most highly trafficked real estate sites in the whole of Miami.“
Our fundamental goal is to expose your property to the right audience with the right message. It is about targeting a specific audience such as investors, tax refugees or relocating families with geo-specific campaigns and the right message. As you might know these days most buyers are relocation buyers coming for the high tax states (mostly the northeast) who are looking for good quality homes near Miami’s best private schools in Miami’s safest areas. We know how to target these relocation buyers and how to keep them interested as we offer very specific and targeted videos and blogs. This is how the majority finds us!
DSG’s unique and rich information has earned us a dominant number 1 spot for almost all Miami real estate related key words in the world’s most used search engines. With our real estate reports, real estate forecasts and relocation guides we capture buyers from all over the globe who trust our opinion and who reach out to us for advice and guidance. Underpinning the strong digital footprint is the digital expertise when it comes to specific marketing campaigns. Our Funnel Campaigns, Retargeting, effective ranking on Google for long tail key phrases and geo specific adverts (to name a few) are leading large amounts of potential buyers to the site. These potential buyers have to subscribe to our site and they will receive a personal phone call as well as our e-mail blasts. As we get many new subscribers to the website I have a very large database of buyers who are actively looking for high quality homes in a very competitive market. One of the reasons I sell properties very fast is because we pre-market them to our database and a short list of buyers I have in mind for every new listing I take on.
When we take on a listing we write a targeted blog and create a professional video. We will send professionally designed email flyers to local agents, buyers as well as top producing agents around the country in cities like NY, LA and Chicago. We also often personally call Miami’s top agents to inform them about the new listing.
Targeted blogs can be a blog about your property, but also a blog on the desirability of your type of property. In case your home is located in a gated community we will write an article on your gated community, which then features your home. When you are selling a golf course home we will write an article on Golf Course homes featuring your listings and so on. These blogs will then be published on our social media, shared with our buyers and often we will have digital campaigns to reach the right audience (buyers).
We hire a professional photographer and videographer to shoot your property. Please find below two exclusive listing videos we have used for our marketing, which in times of Covid are complemented by a professional 3D Virtual Tour.
