Miami Condo Investments Joins the EWM office in Brickell

December 19, 2007 by Lucas Lechuga


I am pleased to officially announce that I have decided to join the EWM office in Brickell. The office is centrally located in the recently developed Mary Brickell Village which has great shops and restaurants and has become the focal point of Brickell. It was a logical choice for me since I conduct most of my business in Brickell.

EWM has been in existence since 1964 and has become one of the top real estate brokerages in South Florida. EWM is owned by HomeServices which is wholey owned by world-renowned Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and is also affiliated with Christie’s Great Estates.


EWM is a pro-blogging real estate brokerage. It even has their own widely read real estate blog which has great information pertaining to neighborhoods stretching from the southern tip of Florida to West Palm Beach.

You might be saying to yourself “Congrats Lucas, but how is this move going to benefit me as a reader?”. There’s just one word that comes to mind – statistics. I know that you love statistics, as do I. EWM has the best software that can break down the market like no other can. The software dates back 5 years while the MLS data only goes back 2 years. You can get a taste of the software here at the Facts & Trends link. This is just a taste, however. The full software, which I have access to, allows me to break the data down by city, zip code, development name, single family vs. condo, waterfront vs. non-waterfront, price, square foot and date. I was in heaven when I accessed this software. I’m a big statistical buff, as many of you already know, so having this type of data at my fingertips is sensational! I can now tell someone the average price per square foot that XYZ development was selling for back in 2002. How great is that?!

I’m also now able to provide IDX pages for individual developments. I plan to incorporate all Brickell, Brickell Key, Downtown Miami and the Arts District developments onto my blog. You’ll be able to click on a condo development name to view available units as well as recent sales. This should be implemented within the next month.

You may or may not have noticed that I neglected to publish a December index for Brickell, Brickell Key and South Beach. I have no intentions to do so. The holiday season is upon us. For the rest of December I plan to pretend that the real estate and stock markets are functioning superbly. What a joyous fictitious month it will be!

After the New Year, the Brickell and Brickell Key condo indices will return. The South Beach condo index, however, will not. I plan to focus this blog on condos in Brickell, Brickell Key, Downtown Miami and the Arts District. I know South Beach well but don’t plan to focus my efforts there.

Let’s just say that he’ll take everything east of Biscayne Bay and I’ll take everything west of it. A fare trade in my eyes.

Hey Lucas,

Welcome aboard! I’m sure you’ll find EWM a great place to be, I do.

I’ve always have had great respect and admiration for everything that you have achieved and continue to achieve.

I wish you continued success.

P.S. I’ve saw that you called me a couple times today—I’m going to grab something to eat (not really “dinner”)–and I’ll call ya later.


Great news!


Best wishes!!!!!!!!!

The trigger for creativity and innovation is change and viceversa. Change for the better is a natural outcome of all the great things you’ve done in this blog…

Lots of people in Venezuela should be reading your blog. I recommend it every chance I get.

Keep up the great work!!

Lucas Lechuga

Thank you Cesar for spreading the word about my blog. I appreciate it!

How is the political climate in Venezuela these days? Is it as bad as the media portrays it to be?

Beth Butler

Hey Lucas: I couldn’t be happier to have you with EWM. Your facts and stats on the Downtown market are a great addition to the team.

Lucas, like a lot of your readers, I am looking forward to these implementations


Lucas, congrats and good luck. I do have an important question as it pertains to South Beach: Will you continue to include it (and other areas outside Brickell) in notices of upcoming auctions?

Thanks for the excellent blog. I’m sure it will be even better w/EWM.

Congratulations. I am also a reader of your blog, and I think that EWM should be very happy to count you in their team.
And you will join the estimate Kevin Tomlinson. This will be a tough competing team.
Best regards.
