OLYMPIA – LUXURY PROPERTY SHOW LONDON | FIND OUT HOW TO SHOWCASE YOUR PROPERTY

There is no doubt the internet is a great way to reach international buyers, but sometimes there is nothing better than getting together face-to-face. With so many buyers nowadays coming from all over the world this can be a challenge.

That is why we are looking forward to taking lots of our finest homes to London in November: On the 1st and 2nd of that month many wealthy buyers from Europe and beyond will make their way to prestigious Olympia in London to view a selection of the most desirable homes from around the world.

It is in this rarified environment that we have been selected to showcase many of our most luxurious homes. We will be joined by leading real estate industry experts who will be running helpful interactive workshops and seminars over the course of this important two-day event, and, for the eighth year in succession – so successful is the show – that two of our own London office team, Nick Churton and Annette Reeve, will be on hand to help.

This invitation-only private view is a celebration of luxury homes and offers guests a unique opportunity to see and buy some of the world’s most exclusive properties.

London’s favorite exhibition venue, Olympia is surely the perfect backdrop for international buyers to discover some of the world’s most exclusive properties.

We believe it is our ability to expose our clients’ homes to these premium international buyers that really sets us apart from other brokers. We see it as essential that we are able to exhibit some of our most stunning homes at this important event. It is because London is so international and has such a strong influence into Europe, the Middle East, the Far East and Russia that the Olympia event has a reach far beyond London and the rest of the UK.

Call us now to discuss how your home can be showcased at the Luxury Property Show this November – remember it is by invitation-only so only the most serious buyers will be there.

This means there will be a lot of wealth in a small place and it will allow us to speak to the type of buyers who are by nature often difficult to reach. We are keen to introduce our serious sellers to some of the world’s most serious buyers in a relaxed atmosphere where they have the time and inclination to talk.

COASTAL LUXURY PROPERTIES SUMMER 2018 | All New Escape- Thailand “Sarojin”

Discover Thailand

Location: The Sarojin, Thailand

The Sarojin encompasses everything you could want in vacation: All the amenities of a five-star luxury resort with the proximity to both rainforests and diving locations and a romantic atmosphere on top of all that. Fairly intimate, its 56 rooms are situated on 11km of beach in Khao Lak, near the Similan Islands’ diving sanctuaries, five national parks, and Phang Nga Bay’s limestone islands. And, even if you want to play a round, three 18-hole golf courses sit within an hour from its grounds.

“The Sarojin encompasses everything you could want in a vacation.”

Seven two-story buildings, each set within a 10-acre tropical garden, house the 56 residences, each created to have a peaceful atmosphere not far removed from the nature outside. While simple, your stay here gives you complimentary access to catamarans, kayaks, windsurfers, paddleboards, mountain bikes, and the fitness center.

So, where do you begin? To take in as much of your surroundings as possible, start with The Sarojin’s personal guides and Imagineer personal concierge. Their insights and recommendations, let you plan any number of “just for two” excursions on land, in the water, or some combination thereof. Beyond swimming, diving, or kayaking, consider a guided jungle adventure, complete with a gourmet-style safari lunch, or a private charter on luxury yacht Lady Sarojin.

As well, their input isn’t only those once-in-a-lifetime adventures. Work with the resort’s team to create a romantic dining experience according to your tastes – by a jungle waterfall, on a white sandy beach, or even on a river bank following a cooking class.

Much like the activities around the resort, dining, too , turns into a journey. Taste top-notch Thai and Mediterranean cuisine at the resort’s two restaurants, Edge and Fiscus, while the award-winning wine cellar and bar are stocked with an excellent selection of imported beverages. A la carte breakfast is further served all day, with sparkling wine included. To top is all off, wherever you go, a view of the beach turns even the most mundane experience into a romantic occasion.

No resort vacation is complete without a spa, and The Sarojin situates the award-winning Pathways over its main estuary and central lay line. Much like the residences, the spa, too feels secluded while taking advantage of its natural surroundings – here, a coconut grove and the Andaman Sea in the distance. After walking along its winding boardwalk, you can select from an array of treatments performed in four open-air pavilions, and finish your stay with a rain shower or couple’s bath.

Named a Conde Nast Traveler Readers Award Top Hotel in 2017, The Sarojin has one distinct advantage. Because of the weather, you can schedule your trip at any time of the year, and have access to the same assortment of intimate, adrenaline-pumping land and water adventures.

Surfsedge project in Indian River Shores could be under construction in early 2019

 

INDIAN RIVER SHORES — Construction is to begin in 2019 on The Surfsedge at Indian River Shores, a 12-condo, 12-home beachfront development along State road A1A.

Its site-development was approved last week by the Town Council, and infrastructure work is expected to begin by the end of the year, officials said.

The Lutgert Companies of Naples, purchased the 5.3-acre site from the town in May 2017 for $4.4 million. and now can move ahead with permit applications, Town Manager Rob Stabe said.

“It’s beautiful,” said Stabe. “The design is everything they promised to deliver to our residents, and it will be a great asset to the town.”

Under the new zoning — planned development — density of the project will drop from an allowable 30 units to 24. In frequent meetings prior to the sale, residents expressed their preference for a smaller, single-family development that would fit better within the surrounding neighborhood.

The site plan, unveiled at a Town Council meeting, shows a ground-floor garage and six first-floor and six second-floor condominium units on the east side of the property.

A communal rooftop terrace will include a summer kitchen, fireplace, dog-walking area and fire pit. That terrace will push total height, including the elevator, to 51 feet. Without the planned-residential zoning, maximum building height is 40 feet.

The 12 single-family homes would be built closer to S.R. A1A, along a private street  connecting the homes and the condos.

The gated development will be surrounded by a six-foot wall.

Outside the community’s wall, a five-foot walking path on the south end of the property will allow community access to the beach. The walkway was recommended by the town Planning, Zoning and Variance Board to insure Shores’ residents keep the same beach access they have had for decades.

Indian River County is expected to approve a new dune crossover to the beach and ocean.

BROKER Q&A

Dale and Matilde Sorensen: Dale Sorensen Real Estate, Inc.

How did you start real estate?

MS: I owned a quaint little store on the Barrier Island and I was helping Dale with his real estate company when I decided to become a Realtor® myself. It worked well as we also had two young children with busy schedules. I’ve also really loved interior design and home décor so it was a perfect fit for me. That was 40 years ago and I haven’t regretted it for one minute.

DS: I started Dale Sorensen Real Estate in 1978 out of necessity – I needed a job. The large company I worked at for 10 years was moving out of the area and we did not want to relocate. My responsibilities with them included managing their real estate interest in Florida and their resort properties in the Dominican Republic, so I had to obtain my broker’s license. After a lot of discussion with Matilde and our family, we decided to go into business ourselves.

What are you favorite parts of your job?

MS: I love meeting new people and getting to know them and their families. It’s fun sharing everything that Vero Beach has to off

er; this is a growing community, but it’s never lost its small-town feel. I love going into homes and learning all the specifics about each one and what makes it unique and special.

What makes your company stand out?

DS: Since our inception, we have made community service a priority. We are company, and a family, that gives back to the community in many ways. In addition, we have created a very recognizable brand, not only in our area, but throughout the industry; for this we are indebted to our children, Dale Jr. and Elizabeth. We are noted for our creative marketing programs and cutting-edge technology. Two of they key elements that bind all this together are our reputation for fairness and honesty along with the level of service we provide our customers. In very simple terms – you reap what you sow.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

DS: Outside of work I enjoy fishing and diving with my grandson, JD, and son, Dale Jr. I still play little tennis and play golf regularly. Matilde and I love to travel and to have been fortunate to have traveled all over the world.

Where are you favorite places to travel?

DS: Italy – especially Tuscany and Venice, Napa Valley, Burgundy, London, Paris and Hong Kong.

What inspires you to succeed?

MS: It’s the people that inspire me to succeed. Success to me is when I hand over the keys to a home and see the looks on the new homeowner’s face; that look of pride and ownership. Or when I’m able to tell a seller that I found a buyer for their home. I don’t feel like I sell homes – I develop a relationship with clients based on their personalities and find them the perfect home.

Micky Decker joins the DSRE Team

 

If you’ve lived in Vero Beach for any amount of time, chances are you crossed paths with Micky Decker.  Her reputation as a banker in the area is such that if you asked anyone for a referral for a banker, most people would say “Go see Micky Decker”.  This exceptional reputation is sure to continue as she begins her new career in the real estate industry.

Micky was in the banking industry for 36 years when she decided to embark on a new journey.  “I absolutely love helping people,” Micky says.  “I find it especially rewarding if I can add value and quality to someone’s life by helping them find something that fits their needs.”

Micky’s background and knowledge also gives her skills that will serve her customers well.  “Because of my previous work with home equity loans and lending, I’m very knowledgeable about contracts and the financial side of real estate.  I’ll be able to help my customers navigate and understand the complexities of the real estate transaction.”

Choosing Dale Sorensen Real Estate was an easy decision for Micky.  Her son, David Decker, is an agent with DSRE so she knew from him the outstanding culture and reputation of the company.  “I also learned what a wonderful training program they have for new agents.  It was immediately obvious to me how much they value their sales agents and want to help them succeed.  Their innovative marketing and advertising programs really stand out from any other real estate firm in the area.  I’m really excited to begin my new career with Dale Sorensen Real Estate and I’m very excited to help newcomers to the area see all the special qualities of Vero Beach that I love.”  Micky plans to focus on single family homes and condominiums.

Micky moved from Indiana to Vero Beach in 1972, when she was just 16 years old.  But she became a Floridian in every sense of the word.  She has a passion for fishing and going to the beach and loves spending time with her sons, David and Kyle, and her two grandchildren.
