Located on in the area of South Miami-Dade County is the incorporated village of Palmetto Bay. The land making up Palmetto Bay has been inhabited for over 10,000 years by various cultures, with the Paleo-Native Americans, Tequestas, Seminoles, and Afro-Bahamians making up some of the indigenous peoples met by the first waves of European settlers. It's interesting to see the evolution of human habitation from the historical evidence left behind by past generations. In the area of Miami Rock Ridge, you can find cave dwellings dating back thousands of years ago to modernized Mediterranean-Revival mansions. In the late 19th century, individuals such as Francis and John H. Earhart, who owned around 2,000 acres of land in the area, established a farming community. Thomas J. Peters was another influential person in the development of Palmetto Bay. Peters owned and operated a vast tomato enterprise near the present-day intersection of Eureka Drive and US 1. Peters’ tomato farm was the largest commercial operation in Dade County for years. On November 6, 1995, the Alliance of Palmetto South Homeowners Association petitioned Miami-Dade County to incorporate. Even though the Boundaries Commission opposed the move, the County’s Planning Advisory Board voted for approval.

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
