Listed and Marketed by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (Dec. 20, 2021) – After just four months on the market, one of the most significant properties in Miami-Dade County has sold resulting in the highest priced sale for the area in history.

The nearly 2-acre estate is uniquely positioned within the ultra-exclusive enclave of Star Island and offers sweeping unobstructed views of the Miami skyline. Known as ‘Villa Lourdes’, the 20,000 square foot Mediterranean mansion overlooks Biscayne Bay with 100 feet of direct waterfront. The property, located at
8 Star Island Drive, Miami Beach, FL 33139, received multiple viable offers and was marketed by Realtor-Associate Elizabeth Lima of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty.

Lima credits her Managing Broker, Odalys “Ody” Sierra, and the global reach and strategic luxury marketing approach of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices for effecting the sale with Coldwell Banker who represented the buyer.

“Greater Miami luxury real estate has unquestionably set the standard for upscale lifestyles globally.  Our great state of Florida has showcased over the last several years many great properties, a few exceptional properties, and then there is Villa Lourdes,” remarked Rei Mesa, President and Chief Executive Officer, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty.  “The views and vistas that this incomparable estate affords would literally be beyond Ernest Hemingway’s’ ability to describe. Our Coral Gables tandem of our Managing Broker, Ody Sierra and Realtor®-Associate, Elizabeth Lima are the ideal team to effectively market this transcendent property and lifestyle.”

“Congratulations to Ody and Elizabeth on this exciting and one-of-a-kind transaction,” said Gino Blefari, CEO of HomeServices of America, the parent company to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty. “It is a true testament to your market expertise, uncompromising standards and dedication to delivering an exceptional real estate experience.”

Working together with Sierra, Lima was able to earn the seller’s trust and confidence of the seller in her ability to promote a property of such magnitude. The far-reaching tools and resources provided by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty were a key factor in the seller’s decision to list with Lima.

“I tribute our Luxury Collection Marketing Program for the astonishing success of this listing and sale,” stated Sierra. “As a benefit to our Certified Luxury Collection professionals, we offer a robust marketing platform to assist in promoting qualified properties.”  According to Lima, “the leadership team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty gave me the confidence and the tools to thrive at this magnitude.”
