Wow, 2020 was an interesting year. I would like to start off by saying THANK YOU to all of our clients for your continued support, to my team for being so incredible, and to the Compass staff for helping us take our business to the next level. With over $35 million in closed sales and 90+ happy families in 2020, I am so happy and grateful to be part of this team.

With everything that happened last year, you might be wondering how it will impact South Florida real estate trends in 2021. Here is what we’re currently seeing:

I’ve always been a big fan of happy hour. After a long day of selling Delray Beach real estate I like to get out and have some fun at my favorite local spots, but I also like to get home early (very helpful when you have a 15-month-old baby who likes to start her day at 5:30 a.m.)

The coronavirus has put an end to safely enjoying happy hour at the bar, but luckily many local restaurants have adapted and begun offering it at the tables. Here are some of my favorite local spots offering great happy hour deals at their socially distanced tables:

Delray Beach-area homes are selling at an all-time high & inventory is low.

Our neighbors up North and out West are flocking South. Between the pandemic and taxes, sunny South Florida is looking more and more attractive to our feeder markets.

Most people want single family homes with yards (huge bonus if it has a pool), and there aren't enough houses to satisfy this influx of new Floridians. As we all know, whenever supply is less than the demand, home values are given the opportunity to rise.

If you've been on the fence about selling, now is the time to act and get top dollar!

Pam Orzan is originally from Cleveland, and she has called Delray Beach home for over 20 years. Pam has consistently won awards since starting her real estate career in 2000. Here, she shares what she loves most about real estate and the South Florida lifestyle.

Why did you choose to become a real estate agent?

My background was in the apparel industry. I was 28 and an assistant buyer for a women’s fashion catalog. I found myself inside all the time, and not happy with my career. My mom had her house on the market, and I went over for dinner. Her realtor was there. She was happy, social, and a lot like me. She convinced me to give it a try, and if I didn't like it, I could go back to my old career path...meanwhile 20 years later!

Rolly Mouchaty is the newest addition to the Mizner Residential Group team. Here, she shares what she loves most about real estate and the South Florida lifestyle.

Why did you choose to become a real estate agent?

I have the freedom to work from anywhere. I can work from home, my car, the coffee shop, or even the beach or any place in the world. I can create my own schedule, so I spend more time with family and friends. No profession allows me the privilege to plan and choose how to manage my time better than Real Estate. There are laws to obey and rules to follow as a real estate agent, but there’s also plenty of room to run your business as you like.

What do you love most about your job?

I love real estate because you never stop

Why did you choose to become a real estate agent?

What do you love most about your job?

I love meeting new people and the satisfaction that comes from taking their hopes and wishes to help them

New Restaurants in Delray Beach & Boca Raton

Although it might seem like an odd time to open a restaurant, several new spots have recently opened up in Delray Beach and Boca Raton. Here are some new spots to try out!

Hawkers Asian Street Fare is a great new addition to the Ave. because there is nothing else like it. (Let’s be honest, the Ave. definitely doesn’t need another Italian restaurant or ice cream shop). Inspired by the food centers and street fare of SE Asia, Hawkers serves up a variety of unique Asian small plates, noodles, rice dishes, and salads. Outdoor seating is available. Hawkers is located at 640 E Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach.

End of the Ave. is a casual new spot by the eastern end of Atlantic that serves hotdogs, tacos, and other snacks that can easily be transported

We’ve mentioned the weekly Delray Beach GreenMarket before—namely the fact that the market was open during the summer, something that the City of Delray Beach hoped would encourage year-round residents to mingle and enjoy the downtown area. But now that season is getting started, the real, true GreenMarket is back and it's bigger than ever. One of our favorite things to do on the weekends at Mizner Residential Realty has always been to check out this weekly local event, and now there are more reasons than ever for you to look into it, too. The Delray Beach GreenMarket opens on Saturday, October 26, 2019 for its 24th season.  The GreenMarket is situated at Old School Square Park on NE 2nd Avenue right in the heart of the downtown area.
