Best REALTOR We’ve Ever Had

By: Ines Hegedus-Garcia on October 25, 2016

This may sound cliche but one of the best parts of being a Miami Realtor is that you get to help people.  We are known for putting others’ interests above our own and sometimes that means we don’t make as much money, but the rewards are unequivocally superior.

We just sold a house for a Miami Shores family of many years and although heart broken to see them move, so happy for their new journey.

Miami Shores Home Sold by Miamism Sales Team

Here’s what Nancy and Dave Smith had to say about their experience with The Miamism Sales Team. For more client testimonials, please click on the “ABOUT” tab above.

We had a contract in only 5 Days!!!

We have bought and sold several homes in the Miami Shores area and Ines Hegedus-Garcia was the best realtor we have ever had. If you want results, Ines is your gal.

During every step of the process, Ines addressed questions and details in a professional and knowledgeable manner. She was available 24/7 if we had concerns or issues. Ines made the home buying process less stressful and actually enjoyable.

If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the Miami area, I recommend Ines and Rick. They are a great team.

The Keystone Point real estate market is cooling off a bit, similar to many areas around Miami.  What exactly does that mean?  It means we are not seeing a lot of sales.  This does not mean that prices are dropping or that it’s a buyer’s market – it means inventory is staying steady, prices are as well, and homes are taking a bit longer to sell.  It’s a textbook correcting market.

Showings have also slowed down and talk among industry professionals about factors that we can attribute to buyers’ lack of urgency is the elections!  Of course I’m not one to blame everything on the elections, but I do think the whole world is watching and waiting. Another factor is media talk about another real estate bubble because of the amount of condo inventory.  That has all been debunked and although it’s normal to see highs and lows in real estate markets, there is no proof that the single-family home market, especially in areas like Keystone Point, was inflated or over-saturated.

Because it’s a real estate market that requires patience, we want to introduce you to our REAL-TIME MARKET REPORTS – these reports will give you a quick snapshot of the market, will include historical views of home prices and will help you stay informed about conditions that may impact the area.

Miamism Fridays – Hard Rock Stadium

By: Ines Hegedus-Garcia on October 21, 2016


Miami is so excited about the renovations to our Dolphin Stadium, now known as Hard Rock Stadium.  It actually made me happy to hear that it would be renovated rather than a new one built to replace it, as it is common in this part of the world and because we seem to be a disposable society.

This amazing photograph was taken by the very talented, Jorge Molina.  Please check out his work, because it’s breathtaking.

With that I leave you another Miamism!!

Have a great weekend, from the Miamism Sales Team.

Expert and Ethical Miami Realtors

By: Ines Hegedus-Garcia on October 20, 2016

We recently received a client testimonial that we just HAD to share with you.  One thing is for us to tell you that our business relies on referrals, and another is for you to read how a satisfied Miami home seller feels about us.

5900 SW 28 St - Alfred Browning Parker

Remember the Alfred Browning Parker home in Schenley Park we recently wrote about?  Well, that’s the home seller that wrote this testimonial.  Thank you Barbara for trusting us with the sale of your home, it means the world to us.

After an unsuccessful and frustrating attempt to sell my home “by owner” and enduring the sales pitches of several agents vying for my listing, I came upon an on-line article so passionately written that convinced me Ines Hegedus-Garcia was the one for me.  And I was right!  Ines is so well prepared and professional in conveying reasonable expectations and implementing plans to achieve the best possible results.  She expertly and patiently guided me through the process from a seller’s perspective, mobilized her contacts and related professionals, and personally conducted numerous showings of my home—all without disrupting my life and routine.  As a direct result of Ines’ efforts, I had an extremely attractive offer within a week of her involvement and closed within two months.Ines advises, consults, protects and defends her clients, ethically and effortlessly guiding them toward the mutually intended and agreed upon goal.  She always was prompt, kept me apprised of every detail and even revived the contract that ultimately closed when it (and I) seemed to be falling apart.  She was with me—literally by my side—from the time I signed the listing agreement through the time I signed the closing documents.  And she remains with me still, following up and ensuring client satisfaction.

I have never met another agent like Ines.  I have and will continue to endorse her, something I rarely, if ever, feel comfortable doing.  But when one meets someone as professional, personal and honest as Ines Hegedus-Garcia, it would be a disservice not to share her talents with others who need such a force during a very stressful and life-changing experience.  I am not exaggerating when I say that I truly could not have done it without her.

To find other Miami real estate client testimonials, please go to the upper horizontal menu bar above (orange), under “ABOUT” and click “testimonials” on the drop-down menu.

Here’s a pen-and-ink rendering I did for the home sellers.  Needless to say, the home was magnificent.  Call us to sell your historic home or your architecturally significant home, it’s my specialty.

The Miami Real Estate Show: Orlando Montiel interviews Ines from

By: Ines Hegedus-Garcia on October 19, 2016

I am honored to share with you my recent interview by Orlando Montiel, from The Montiel Organization and responsible for the popular and prestigious, Miami Real Estate Show.

Orlando has achieved an amazing reputation locally with the Miami real estate industry because of his willingness to help other professionals grow and his passion for empowering others to become their best.  Orlando wears many hats including real estate broker, financial advisor, and coach, but most importantly, is a true leader admired by many.

I attended a few of his coaching sessions at The Miami Association of Realtors and became an instant fan.  Then we shared the stage at the real estate panel during Social Media Week in Miami when he asked to interview me because of my success with social media.

Although I don’t really share industry news on Miamism and I know that you, as our readers, are consumers and not agents, I wanted to share this so you know a little about how we use the medium and how we’re used as examples nationwide and even internationally.

Let us know what you think!
