Florida's quote of the day
"People often say we’ve had beginner’s luck. But we’ve been doing this for over a decade. "
Here’s how to start off your new year with a bang: Since Jan. 1, brothers Tal and Oren Alexander, who oversee a 10-person team of brokers at Douglas Elliman Real Estate, have worked on three deals worth nearly a half-billion dollars.
First came the Jan. 21 sale of a mansion at 3 Carlton Gardens in London to billionaire Ken Griffin for $122 million — the highest recorded purchase in that city since 2011 — in which the brothers served as referrers.
Two days later, the Douglas Elliman team closed the sale of a New York City penthouse at 220 Central Park South for a whopping $238 million, the most expensive home ever sold in the U.S.,also to Griffin.
Then on Feb. 1, the Alexanders represented the seller in the $50 million sale of a mansion at 3 Indian Creek Island Road — the highest price ever paid for a single-family home in Miami-Dade County — to an undisclosed buyer.
