MIAMI, FL— A 4,730-square-foot condominium in Faena House in Miami Beach has rented for $70,000 a month. Featuring four bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms, this is the highest condo rental this year in Miami-Dade County, according to the MLS*. Ashlea Gershfield-Evans from Prestige Realty Group (PRG) represented the renter, a family from London. The seven month lease became effective November 1st. The residence was listed by Douglas Elliman.
“Faena House was recently completed and the initial rentals were really testing the market to see what price it would bare,” said Tony Rodriguez-Tellaheche, broker and co-founder of Prestige Realty Group. “This rental, which sits on the 10th floor, is a testament to how strong the market still is. We continue to not only break records in real estate, but also receive interest from London buyers —and renters— despite the Brexit.”
PRG has a very direct connection to the UK market. Christopher Hodgson, a native of London, is co-founder/owner of Prestige Realty Group. He is also the son of the famous Roy Hodgson, former manager of the England National Football Team, who has enjoyed wide success as a football manager. Hodgson spends much of his time living and traveling between Miami and London, allowing him to keep his finger on the pulse of both markets. This has proved useful. In August of 2015, The Guardian put the number of millionaires living in Britain at 715,000, compared to 508,000 in 2010 — a 41 percent increase over the past five years. Hodgson’s expertise, network and knowledge of the UK is beneficial to Prestige Realty Group especially in navigating the impact of Brexit.
