Marveled in Miami

I wish Miami wasn’t so far away.
The people, the food, and the experiences are truly remarkable.  Almost a polar opposite of the quintessential "Northwest Lifestlye." Miami was home this year to the Sotheby’s International Conference, where 1150 Sotheby’s agents from around the world gathered along with representative from the Sotheby’s Auction House and the Wine Store.
Aside from the days of networking and evenings of amazing dinners, we had plenty of time to enjoy the nightlife of Miami in and outside of the breathtaking Fountainbleau Resort.  Luxuriating in events sponsored by the Wall Street Journal, and our own private event co-sponsored with the Haute Living Real Estate Network inside Eden Rock, for as much as we worked, we played! (The "afterhours" party following our event took place at The Loft, an exclusive Miami spot frequented by artists and celebrities.)

After the conference wrapped, we were able to truly enjoyed Miami and the Ft. Lauderdale area.  Our timing was perfect as the Ft. Lauderdale boat show was in full swing. The boats on display where phenomenal and justified the show's reputation for being "where the world comes to view mega yachts."  Despite the rain, the event was packed.

Luckily, we were also able to attended a party sponsored by Haute Living and Rolls-Royce inside a magnificent Sotheby’s listing in Ft. Lauderdale.  Magnificent hardly describes the 13 bedroom / 15 bath home, one of the most beautiful homes on the market (coming in just under 20M).   While there, Rolls-Royce was offered test drives, and John (pictured below) being the driver he is, couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel.  Smooth and solid, this vehicle performs on a dime as well.

Now home, it's time to find some excuse to go back to Miami..soon!
