    Chris Leavitt, Douglas Elliman’s director of luxury sales, has been a top broker in South Florida for the past several sales cycles. But you won’t see him in Miami as much – he has moved to Palm Beach where he says sales are strong at the Bristol a new 25-story luxury condominium in West Palm Beach with 69 units selling between $5 million to $30 million each.

    Leavitt, the Bristol’s “brand ambassador,” said he made the move to Palm Beach after he “saw a change in sales volume,” in Miami, where the luxury condo market has been affected by a global drop in currencies against the dollar and new luxury condo inventory is ballooning.

    Leavitt told The Real Deal that unlike Miami-Dade, foreign buyers are a negligible presence in Palm Beach. Most of his clients he said are either New Yorkers or people downsizing from large homes on Palm Beach Island. His buyers, he said, “are very Palm Beach centric, who wouldn’t consider Miami or Broward, but are determined to live in Palm Beach.” [more]
