Christopher is the most knowledgeable, intelligent, diligent, meticulous, creative & punctual young broker I have ever met in my 47 years of real estate development, property management, and real estate brokerage. His Corporate New York background tempered a tremendous discipline for getting things done, taught him information science skills don’t even want to begin to understand, and a genuine sense of responsible & honorable business that is unfortunately so rare these days. Combined with his sheet zeal for the business, I know he will continue to grow in his successes and I will him well!

I have known Christopher for several years and I truly look forward to our lunch meetings now and then. The conversation is always fascinating and his passion for the business yields a depth of knowledge I do not see in people in his profession who are much more seasoned in the business. He is an excellent networker and I am very glad to know him!

Chris is the best broker I know! He has helped me with my business and its expansion from a 1 bedroom apartment into a 2200 square foot office space, and now I have him looking for something bigger! He not only helped me in real estate, but he has a great business mind and greatly assisted me with building a business plan. I am grateful for his friendship and impressed by his desire, and actions, to see that his team, his customers & clients, and his friends grow more successful with each passing day. Thank you Chris!

I moved to Southeast Florida in 2002, and have lived in Sunny Isles Beach for the past 8 years. In this span of time I have seen Southeast Florida, and Miami & the Miami Beaches specifically, grow & evolve by leaps and bounds. Demand continues to get stronger as the self-sustaining beast of the local economy continues to get stronger, creating business, jobs and vast sums of wealth in the process. As the businesses of this area continue to expand, and foreign nationals continue to drive demand in tandem with retirees and a swelling workforce, Southeast Florida real estate markets will continue to appreciate steadily into the future; especially in light of the fact that in virtually all three counties we are built out from the beaches to the Everglades National Park! Limited supply and growing demand should motivate any buyer who has been hoping to purchase their own small piece of Southeast Florida! Contact me for free market reports, neighborhood reports and school reports for the areas you have your eye on. I can help you narrow down your selection so that your home purchase is in or near an area that most closely resembles your desired lifestyle.
On the flip-side, some people want to upsize, downsize, or simply cash out of their existing home which has appreciated considerably over the last 10,20,30 and even 40 years. Contact me for a Free Home Valuation(Comparative Market Analysis) today and let me help you get the highest possible purchase price in your local real estate market!
I have built a small business with a number of skilled & multilingual Florida Licensed Real Estate Sales Associates in order to better serve the general public. Whether you are a first time home buyer or a skilled accredited investor, we are grateful for your business and your complete satisfaction throughout the entire process of purchasing, selling or leasing a home or business is our ultimate goal. We look forward to working with you.
Sincerely Yours, Christopher J. Lazaro, MBA

The beauty of waterfront locations and beautiful warm weather are the driving forces attracting so many buyers to Southeast Florida. It cannot be denied that living in a tropical paradise surrounded by shimmering blue waters, lush green foliage, and clean golden sand beaches is the dream of many people in this world. Southeast Florida, and Miami & the Miami Beaches specifically, have become a top 5 international destination globally. The massive multi-faceted demand for property in this region is undeniable, and it is what continues to drive real estate prices higher and higher. This is a trend no one expects to change in the foreseeable future.
Building equity in a home is the path to one of the greatest of the American Dreams; owning your own home outright. The expansion of industry in the Southeast Florida area has been driving job growth and allowing more people to move here and purchase homes. This is a trend that continues to be fueled by port expansions & dredging, massive construction of not just condos, but gentrification of older neighborhoods, office buildings, hospital expansions and more. New cultural centers, such as museums, stadiums and concert halls have sprung up everywhere creating additional draw and demand for real estate in Southeast Florida. Combined with a continuous flood of foreign direct investment into the region, this self-fueling ecosystem of economic growth is creating more & more homeowners every day!
Developers have launched incredible Miami condos for sale that offer residents an extraordinary lifestyle. Many properties feature distinctive architecture and beautifully finished homes with plenty of best-in-class features, allowing you to live richly and in a pampered & relaxed lifestyle. With the aim of providing the best possible lifestyle to residents, Developers have lavished their new structures with state-of-the-art amenities and building features such as over sized glass balconies with hurricane resistant glass, beautiful swimming pools, valet parking, tennis and badminton courts, playgrounds, library, club house, sun deck, modern gym, business center, 24 hours security, grand lobby, cable TV, 24 hours security, Wi-Fi and more!
The biggest tax benefits of owning a home in Miami, Florida is that buyer can get a homestead exemption. Specifically, Florida residents can get a property tax exemption up to $50,000 for their primary residence. Additional benefits are available through Florida’s Homestead Law should your spouse die, you are an Active Duty Veteran, Elderly, First Responders or Disabled.
In addition, once you have owned your home for at least 1,215 days (approximately 4 years), you may exempt an unlimited value in your home should you ever need to declare bankruptcy.
Lastly, Florida does NOT have a State Income Tax. Depending on where you are moving from, this could be a savings of as much as 10-15% when taking into account both City & State income taxes in other comparable metropolitan areas.
Ranging from Affordable Living to Ultra-Luxury, there is something in Southeast Florida for all budgets, tastes, and preferences. Compared to comparable metropolitan cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston, Miami is amazingly affordable and there is currently no State Income Tax.
