We’ve Moved!

After 30 years in downtown Miami, we have relocated the Miami office to home office facilities in Pinecrest.

We’re at:

Blazejack & Company
5890 SW 100th Terrace
Pinecrest, FL 33156

new-office

This was not an easy decision.  We have always felt that our downtown location contributed to our ability to monitor the pulse of the market but the nature of how work gets done in the financial services sector has changed, undercutting that locational advantage.

Cost and speed are the preeminent considerations in the real estate service sector today.  Whereas normal assignment delivery timeframes once centered on 30 days, now three weeks is often too long.  In a rising market, this might be expected.  But as the market approaches inflexion, sacrificing experience for a few hundred or even a few thousand dollars in fee savings becomes fraught with increasing risk.  Just one mistake and all those fee dollars saved on dozens of deals, are flushed away.  So let me suggest that as this market continues to slow, take a little more time and be a little more thorough with real estate due diligence.

Coupled with this increased competitive environment, the declining efficiency of automobile transportation in Miami has been doubly frustrating.  Since I lost a sister to “an accident” and because I subsequently worked as a bike/ped advocate in her memory, I am not as keen on taking shortcuts with day – talking on the phone and/or texting while operating a vehicle.  That means my commute time in the car is truly dead time.  Using transit and going on foot is great, but sweaty most of the year in South Florida.

And our new technology doesn’t really require us to be physically proximate in order to collaborate closely.  We can be at home, in the co-working space of our choice, or in the local coffee shop.

We will save time commuting.  Time I hope we will spend on the street thinking about how our client’s properties are situated, physically, legally and economically.

We look forward to providing you with the best real estate consulting we’ve ever done and you have ever received.

Thanks!  Happy New Year!
