Perez & Dubois Realtors

goodbye 2014!

Hello all!

This year has been an exciting and eventful year for real estate in general and for our company, Perez & DuBois Real Estate.

The future of north Palm Beach County is expanding with new construction in the form of commercial and residential developments that are planned for Palm Beach Gardens, Village of North Palm Beach and Town of Jupiter in the coming months and years.

Harbourside Place opened in October 2014 in beautiful Jupiter, Florida. The largest occupant of this gorgeous waterfront development is the Wyndham Hotel. The Wyndham Hotel boasts more than 15,000 square feet of event and meeting space, three restaurants, a 5,000 square foot Ballroom, the scenic Mangrove Deck, 179 gorgeous guest rooms and first class amenities and services. The remainder of the development includes restaurants, retail shops and a marina with public and private slips.

The Panama Hattie’s/Rum Bar site in Palm Beach Gardens closed in August 2014 to make way for a new multi-use development. The former proposed site plan called for about 80 one to two bedroom condos, a 146-room hotel, restaurants, office space, retail shops and approximately 30 boat slips all constructed along the Intracoastal Waterway. However, this planned was shelved and the new proposed development entails 95-unit luxury condominium and townhome residences. According to an article published by the Palm Beach Post on October 13, 2014, the reason for the change was “market timing.”

Kolter Homes is planning two new residential communities in the Village of North Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens. The Water Club condominium in North Palm Beach will offer breathtaking waterfront views. This condo development will consist of two 22-story twin towers and 20 waterfront villas including access to a 5,000-square-foot club, spa, lap pool, fitness center and marina. The second residential development by Kolter, is called Gardenia Isles. Situated on the west side of Military Trail between Northlake Boulevard and PGA Boulevard, Gardenia Isles will be a small, gated community of just 21 residences that offers country club living without the country club fees. Other residential developers such as Toll Brothers and DiVosta Homes are also making their presence known as well in the north end with other beautiful developments.

The best part of this year has been that Perez & DuBois Real Estate moved into the South End neighborhood of West Palm Beach, a hidden oasis in the historic areas of this city. There is an exclusivity and allure to the South End that leaves everyone wanting to live here! This traditional neighborhood has a variety of architecturally diverse homes and is within walking distance to the Intracoastal Waterway as well as a bridge away from the renown Mar-a-Lago. The South End is also sought out because of its top rated elementary school, South Olive Elementary School and its close proximity to antique shops galore.  These are just a few of the many reasons people are attracted to live in this select and prestigious neighborhood and we are so thrilled to be helping sellers and buyers in this area.

As our business continues to grow, we are so grateful for those of you who have put your trust in us from the beginning.  It is so rewarding to work in the field of real estate helping people buy and sell homes.  Each person or family has a unique and specific need and we are so honored to be a part of each life we touch.  We truly value all the relationships we have made and as we go into 2015 we are wishing every one of our customers, friends and family a prosperous and blessed 2015!
