BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Westside Estate Agency (“WEA”) is excited to announce today the GRAND OPENING of its new Miami, Florida office located in the heart of the city’s prestigious banking/finance district. The Miami location joins WEA’s already established offices in Beverly Hills and Malibu, California. The office will be led by Cyril Bijaoui, one of Miami’s top real estate power brokers who has been involved in several hundred million dollars of luxury real estate transactions, and brings both a wealth of experience and an established team to WEA.
“The Miami luxury real estate market is one of the top and fastest growing in the world,” say Stephen Shapiro and Kurt Rappaport, WEA co-founders. “We are excited to bring WEA to the region to meet the needs of both our buyer and seller clients in the area and have been looking for the perfect individual to lead this expansion. Cyril is that person.”
Founded in 1999, WEA is defined by the values and the vision of its two founders, Shapiro and fellow real estate powerhouse and the nation’s most successful agent, Kurt Rappaport, who felt there had to be a better way to meet the very high expectations and individual needs of their high-net worth clients. Today, the agency has a clientele without parallel, at the pinnacle of the business, financial, technology and entertainment industry generating billions in sales and the highest average price per sale in the industry.
“I am very excited about this new addition to my professional efforts. WEA is the true definition of high end boutique luxury residential brokerage as a market leader in Los Angeles. Miami will very much benefit from their expansion into our amazing burgeoning city," said Bijaoui, about the Miami expansion.
Bijaoui’s history in the Miami marketplace mirrors WEA’s approach and mindset to buying and selling luxury real estate. Born in France and raised in the Miami region, Bijaoui matches the Agency’s attention to its clients, responsiveness and efficiency, and will lead an established, seasoned team of agents at the WEA location.
The Miami luxury real estate market has long had an established International City ranking and holds the number nine position worldwide in the 2014 International Real Estate Report. It is second only to London as the world’s most popular second-home market and is quickly catching up to New York City in price per square foot for luxury residential real estate. With its competitive pricing and cultural and business value, it continues to see rapid growth as a leading luxury market in the United States.
The newly opened WEA Miami office is located at 2100 Ponce de Leon Blvd. in Coral Gables. For WEA Miami real estate inquiries contact Bijaoui at 305-447-1471 or Cyb@weahomes.com. To learn more about WEA or its current property listings, visit www.weahomes.com.
