Only a few days left before the Miami International Car Show kicks off, running from November 8 to 17 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. If you’re an avid car lover, or if you’re just looking for a fun experience, don’t miss this popular Miami event!

Recognized as one of the largest and most prestigious auto events in the nation, it showcases more than a thousand new vehicles from over 40 manufacturers from around the world. This world-famous venue includes such popular exhibits as Topless in Miami, which displays convertible cars in a picturesque Miami environment, and Havana Classics, which celebrates the nostalgic vehicles of the 1950s. Other attractions include Ride and Drive, where visitors will be given the opportunity to learn about and test drive a number of the latest vehicles on offer from the manufacturers, and Million Dollar Alley, the event’s collection of luxury vehicles ranging from Ferrari to Lamborghini. It doesn’t stop there. From antique automobile selections and exhibits, to impressive tours on the latest Jeep models, there’s something for everyone at this auto-lovers paradise.

This year will mark the show’s 43rd anniversary, located in the same venue it opened in since 1971. Back then, it was among a handful of major auto shows in America. Now, there are 60 annual auto shows and this production is still among the largest. Since its establishment, the show sought to include the latest technologies in the industry, providing attendees with the chance to see them firsthand. This is a tradition that has maintained, attracting automobile enthusiasts to see one of America’s oldest and best auto extravaganzas.

Here’s a look at some of the cars:

Nearby are such local hotspots as Lincoln Road, Lucky Strike Lanes, Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, Jungle Island, and New World Symphony. For more information on the Miami International Auto Show, visit the official website posted below. http://www.sfliautoshow.com/

Congratulations to The Jill’s for their feature in today’s edition of the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ article, The Battle of the Big Deal, highlights Jill Hertzberg’s expertise in the ever changing real estate business. The Jills’ success stems from their personal contact with, and devotion to their clients, as well as their ever growing international database of high net worth clients, which dates back over 20 years. I am so proud of my mom and Jill Eber, congratulations again!

Versace! Versace! Versace!

5 Oct
The Jills recently marketed and held an auction for the sale
of Miami’s famed Versace Mansion.  On September 17, 2013
the bidding took place at the Versace property under a tent set in
front of the stunning mosaic-tiled pool lined in 24k gold.
There were three primary bidders present at the auction;
Palm Beach club owner Glenn Straubthe, Joe Nakash who is
chairman of Jordache Enterprises, and Eric Trump representing
his father Donald and the Trump brand.

The energy was high as the competing bids volleyed back
and forth toward an intense last moment before Nakash
took the auction.  Going Once! Going Twice! Sold!  When the
gavel went down the entire Nakash party jumped up in celebration.
 The Versace Mansion sold for an unbelievable $41.5 million dollars.
It was an epic sale that was covered all over the world.
The Versace mansion is truly a gem of a property.  As a
potential single family home, the Versace mansion sale
broke the recent Miami Beach record of Alex Rodriguez’s
$30 million dollar sale on North Bay Road.

What’s next for for such an iconic property?

The Nakash family owns the Hotel Victor that is located next
door to the Versace Mansion and may turn it into a luxury
boutique hotel or high end retail.  It will be exciting to see
what they do there, hopefully they preserve the
unique character of the property while finding a new
use for it. It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to
participate in such a historic sale. Our team is grateful
for all of the support we have received and wish the
new owners all the very best!
In the spirit of Versace press play below!

Authentic Indian Cuisine in Sunny Isles – Copper Chimney

12 Sep

photo 2

In the corner of a Sunny Isles strip mall there is a hidden gem of authentic Indian food that should truly be on everyone’s best of Miami list. Copper Chimney is amazing, hands down the best Indian food in Miami! Copper Chimney specializes in Tandoor (clay oven) dishes. The food is spicy; the kind of spicy where your tongue is burning but you still can’t stop eating because it is so delicious. Unless you like your dishes with a lot of heat, ask for mild. We went for medium, it was almost too hot to handle but with the spice came an irresistible burst of flavor.

Copper Chimney is family owned. The owners are gracious hosts who clearly have a lot of pride for the quality of both food and service. Bollywood movies play in the background while patrons feast on simmering dishes, succulent sauces and baskets of fresh naan. Here is a link to Copper Chimney’s menu, check it out before you go because there are over 50 delicious Indian dishes for you to choose from.

For those of you who feel that Sunny Isles is a little out of your way, there is still hope. I was told Copper Chimney plans to open a second location in Downtown Miami, which we are very excited about.

Enjoy!

Best Slice of Pizza in South Beach

7 May

20130613-083840.jpg

If there is one food I pride myself as an expert with, it has to be pizza! During my college days, I even wrote an in depth research paper on the history of pizza. Although NYC has us beat on the best slice, Miami Beach does have some great options!

  • Image
    Bella Napoli Pizzeria is a Hertzberg family favorite. Since 1980 Bella Napoli has been bringing in the locals and it’s a known hang out for Miami Beach police officers and south beach locals. It’s a delicious go-to hole in the wall spot, family owned and operated. I like their pizza and they have a good chicken cacciatore but the real highlight is their minestrone soup, they make it from scratch. Plus the pizza seems to travel well with delivery. So that’s Bella Napoli, nothing fancy, plastic checkered table cloths and that kind of thing.
  • Image
    Piola, really good salads. Cool place to eat. Have a glass of wine and a pizza. Their pies are thin, crispy and come right out of the wood burning oven. The pizza is best eaten at the restaurant as it doesn’t seem to travel very well. Maybe because it’s so thin? Who knows, but it is good!
  • Image
    I also like Pizza Fusion. Similar to Piola with good salads and GREAT pizza that also does not travel well… at all. However, on the plus side they only use organic ingredients and even have a gluten free option!
  • Image
    Primo’s south of fifth is a Miami Beach original and is open until 5am on the weekends. Primo’s boasts that their pizza is a “Product of Brooklyn” and the big (greasy) New York style slices are great.
  • Image
    Pizza Rustica first opened on Washington Avenue and has now grown to a couple of locations nationwide. Not my style but I have to put it on the list just because they have such a large cult following. You’ll find square pieces done in an almost Chicago like style. Pizza Rustica is open nearly 24 hours and seems to be enjoyed by locals and tourists alike all day (and night) long.
  • Image
    Lucali is a very new addition to the pizza scene, recently opening a second location straight from Brooklyn to Miami Beach’s growing Sunset Harbour area. Very cool décor, cool vibe, cool place, but that is an expensive pie! It’s a 27 dollar pizza and an extra three dollar charge for each topping so I think I ended up with a 33 dollar pizza. It was a pretty good pizza and I enjoyed it but the jury is still out on this one.
  • This last spot to make the list isn’t exactly on South Beach but if you are up to a short drive, Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza is hands down the best pizza in Miami. It’s crispy and can be complimented with great sides, great salads and they make amazing baked chicken wings…the chicken wings are really really good, on par with the pizza. I don’t think they deliver but they do take out. Perfect Sunday night kind of spot.

Enjoy your new found pizza joints and as always please leave comments and suggestions, I will be glad to see them!
