Julian Johnston Featured In Ireland’s Sunday Business PostApril 20, 2015
One of the most renowned specialists in Miami Beach Waterfront Homes, perhaps it’s no surprise that Julian Johnston’s skills reverberate far beyond America: his involvement in the $10.5 million sale of 1142 N. Venetian, owned by famed Formula 1 driver Eddie Irvine, drew the attention of the Sunday Business Post, based in Dublin, Ireland.
The article quotes both Irvine and Julian as they weighed in on the real estate market.
“[Irvine’s] specialty is old houses, 1930s poor quality builds with small rooms that are out of date compared to how people live now,” said Julian Johnston of Calibre International Realty, a real estate specialist who advises Irvine on projects and then lists them on completion.
Infinity pools and floor to ceiling roll back sliding telescopic doors and eco friendly features and landscaped grounds are typical features.
“Miami and New York are the hottest property markets in the US at present,” he said.
The typical buyers are mainly wealthy South Americans and well heeled New York baby boomers moving south on retirement.
“Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale are boring,” said Johnston. “Miami is international, has a vibrant cultural scene and is seen as much less cookie cutter,” said Johnston.
No one would know these trends better than Julian Johnston, whose twelve year career has involved a slew of high-profile transactions in recent years.
In addition to the over 6,600-square-foot 1142 N. Venetian, recent sales include 191 N Hibiscus Dr. $14.3 million and 2122 Bay Av. for $8.2 million. In 2012 he was also responsible for the most expensive condo sale in Florida, that of the $25 million PH 1 at the Continuum in South Beach.
Given this track record, it is little wonder that Irvine and other high-profile clients turn to Julian for expertise on this world-class market – or that even international publications have taken notice!
