condo.com blog header

Champagne & Parisi realtor Karen Anderson hit a milestone this week amidst the backdrop of Florida's surging real estate market. The misfortune of many has been a boon for realtors across the state, as Florida shines nationwide as a destination for those looking for a fresh start. During the events that transpired as a result of the COVID19 pandemic, the reasons why people move to South Florida were magnified, while the reasons to flee certain real estate markets were as well. 

Karen's record week topped $11,000,000 (ELEVEN MILLION!) beginning with what may be the single largest sale in the history of the Alina Residences of Boca Raton. This luxuriant condo is as much a resort as a residence, boasting incredible amenities inspired by "the living art" of the space. Alina Residences have long been a significant partner of Champagne & Parisi, accounting for substantial volume in both total condo sales and overall revenue. 

Karen grew up in Ocean Township, NJ before relocating to Boca Raton 23 years ago. She was among the initial wave of founding realtors finding their home with Champagne & Parisi, a key cog in the growth and establishment of the brokerage as the go-to for Boca luxury condos and residential real estate across South Florida.

Sports Immortals Museum

This lauded sports memorabilia museum resides in an innocuous rectangular building on North U.S. 1 in Boca Raton. Founded and curated by real estate developer Joel Platt, the Sports Immortals Museum features an incredible array of collectibles on display from his private collection. These include pieces such as the history Honus Wagner T206 baseball card, game-used material from turn of the century sporting legend Jim Thorpe, and Satchel Paige's jersey from his days in the negro leagues of baseball. For Platt, this is as much a celebration of the connection between sports and the human spirit, as it is a showcase of truly valuable one-of-a-kind material.
