Our picks for the best hotel, pool, rental value, luxury condo and more
Real estate is all about the “WOW.” We see a lot of it. Sometimes 10 to 20 buildings and apartments per week. We don’t write about all of them. We pick the best. One thing you learn quickly is that every property has a soul. A place where that buyer or renter thinks to themselves, “I want to live here.” When that happens, it’s thrilling, like getting a crush on someone. You kind of have to see it again, or just stay there, in that place, and think, “how can I make this happen?” Here’s a list and look at some of the things that made us say “wow” this past year, and wonder, “what do we have to do to live right here?”
