Comparing Fisher Island Condos with other luxury condo markets in Miami

Since these Fisher Island condos are high-end luxury condos in a solely luxury market we decided to compare the Fisher Island Condos with luxury condos in South of Fifth and Key Biscayne.

Key Biscayne is an island similar to Fisher Island with high-end real estate and self sufficiency. Can you completely compare Key Biscayne to Fisher Island? No, because you don’t need an invitation to enter the island and the real estate options are more diverse with houses and condos catering to a broader variety of people. Key Biscayne, specifically The Grand Bay, is the closest comparison we can get to the security levels and exclusivity of Fisher Island.

South of Fifth, although not gated or private, is a playground to the rich and famous and offers upscale living with all the conveniences that come with it. The Condos here are Miami’s most exclusive and have shown great performance year after year.

We have only superlatives to describe how wonderful Cris Buzolin was throughout the process of selling our townhouse in Coral Gables. We were away in the UK while the transaction was taking place and Cris handled everything-from clearing out our house, selling contents when she could, arranging the moving and storage and dealing with some very difficult problems which arose. Always patient and very willing to help in every way, Cris is a consummate professional who really cares about her clients and worked extremely hard to get the price we had asked for and make things for us as easy as she could. Nothing was too much for her to handle.Cris and Marianela (who provided additional very helpful assistance to us during the transaction) are part of the team that David Siddons has assembled.When we decided to sell our property, we contacted David and he established the framework for the transaction and ensured that everything proceeded smoothly and in accordance with our wishes. In sum, David Siddons and his team are extremely competent and professional and we are totally satisfied with the service they provided. To repeat, Cris Buzolin in particular, went way beyond what one would expect from a real estate agent. The David Siddons Group has our highest recommendation!

Fantastic group of people to work with!! David and Adriana were responsive and professional throughout the entire process. We weren't familiar with South Florida so David took us under his wing and did a fabulous job giving us a tour of select neighborhoods in South Florida and shared a great deal of information about each. We fell in love with the Botaniko community in Weston and closed the deal with Adriana. If you are buying/selling this is the team you want to work with!! Thank you guys for helping us find our dream home.
