Zilbert Closes $5.5M Deal at Miami Beach's Apogee Condo


1356032998Miami Beach, FL - Zilbert International Realty, a Miami-based luxury real estate brokerage company, announced today that it has closed on the sale of a $5.5M apartment at Miami Beach's Apogee Condo. Unit 501 is a 4 bedroom, 4154 sf apartment on Apogee's lowest floor, and at a selling price of $1324/sf represents one of the highest prices ever paid for a low floor unit.

The sale of Unit 501 was managed by Zilbert's Bill Hernandez and Bryan Sereny, who market themselves as the "Bill and Bryan Team".

The duo are focused on condos like Apogee and other five-star towers, and have sold multiple units in many of the greatest condos in the Miami area. Bill and Bryan maintain a team website at www.billandbryan.com, and are featured Chairman's Club members of the Zilbert sales team.

Zilbert continues to lead the market in record property sales, including a Continuum apartment, sold by Bill and Bryan for $6,575,000 in September, 2012; and Miami's most-expensive condo ever sold (based on price per square foot), the Penthouse A at Miami Beach's Setai Resort and Residences, sold by Zilbert's Jeffrey M Miller in December, 2011 for $21.5M.
