Real Estate Professional
Ken Howell is a Florida Realtor® with Real Estate Sales Force, a rapidly growing South Florida-based real estate agency. He’s a smart choice for sellers, buyers, and investors looking for residential and multi-family properties in Downtown Miami, Midtown, Brickell, and adjoining areas. A seasoned professional with an MBA from George Washington University and executive experience with IBM and Apple Computer, Ken has decades of direct experience in residential homes, condos, rentals, and flips.
As co-owner of an online luxury lifestyle magazine focusing on fashion, entertainment, and real estate in Brickell/Greater Miami, Ken can present the pros and cons of these neighborhoods’ investment and residential properties while sharing his knowledge of their living costs, accessibility, parking, schools, popular restaurants, entertainment venues, shopping facilities, and neighborhood amenities.
“The Miami condominium market is a dynamic and complex one,” says Ken. “The fact that in recent years downtown residential properties appreciated more than a third while rents shot up over 50% underscores the financial benefits and superior lifestyle of home ownership versus renting.”
While the population of most major cities shrank during the pandemic, Miami’s exploded. This explains why Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts are building the 1,049-foot-tall, multimillion-dollar Waldorf Astoria Hotel and Residences here. Offering 100 floors of upscale condos, it will rank as the tallest residential building south of New York, as well as Miami’s tallest tower and first super skyscraper.
A former resident of Atlanta, Austin, and the DC Metro Area, Ken currently lives in Downtown Miami. In his free time, he enjoys travel, exploring the city, fitness, fine dining, and the local nightlife.
Over the years, Ken has renovated fixer-uppers from the foundation up, transforming them into lucrative investments. He’s also flipped suburban homes and beach vacation properties, handling bookings and property management quite profitably. “Considering leverage, appreciation, and tax benefits,” he concludes, “it seems obvious to me that home ownership is the best way to increase wealth and improve lifestyle.”
