Until the 1950s, the city of Doral was only a patch of swampland sitting between Northwest 36 Street and Northwest 74 Street and Northwest 79 Avenue to Northwest 117 Avenue. Real estate pioneers Alfred and Doris Kaskel purchased the 2,400 acres of land for around $49,000 with the plan of building a golf course and hotel resort. The Doral Country Club opened in 1962 to much fanfare. It quickly became one of Dade County's hottest spots, with guests using shuttles to get from the beach to the country club for a day of golf. In the 1980s, the Kaskels' grandson developed Doral Estates and built Doral Park in collaboration with the Lennar Corporation. Young families began to build investment properties or vacation homes in the area, followed by a growing number of permanent residents. In 1989, the West Dade Federation of Homeowner Associations convinced county officials to implement robust development policies for Doral, including more lighting, better landscaping, and better roads. Many major corporations have also chosen to locate their head offices in Doral. Some of these companies include Carnival Corporation and its subsidiary Carnival Cruise Lines, Amadeus North America, AAXICO, and Perry Ellis International.

They are very knowledgeable and professional. Always accessible, which is so important when you are buying or selling a home and helpful in every way. Not much more to add besides...we love, love, love them! - EL
Julie Frederick is the most reliable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable realtor I know. I told her what I was looking for in a home and she diligently searched high and low until she found the perfect home for my family. Even when I thought I found "the one" she advised me that the sellers were overpriced, and it wouldn't be in my best interest to pursue that home. She did all the work in finding and securing insurance for the home I was purchasing, helped with the inspection process, and set me up with an amazing loan officer that helped to put my financing in order. We couldn't be more pleased with our home. Julie is so friendly, and very honest. She still checks up on me to this day on how we are enjoying our home! Best realtor hands down! The closing was such a smooth process and she made that happen so quickly for my family! I am so grateful for Julie!! - NM
