market makers


The last 7 days saw 175 single family residential resale properties MOVE in Southern Nevada.

ASH is an acronym for Architecturally Significant Homes. These homes are turning heads, making headlines and drawing attention from the wealthiest buyers from all over the globe. Henry Chang’s ASCAYA’s chairman doubled down on architecture and it paid off. MacDonald Highlands is right behind with Luke, Jones, Colletti and more. The other side of our valley is doing it too. Discovery Land’s The Summit Club and The Ridges both in Howard Hughes’ Master Planned Community known as Summerlin feature ASH as well.

Blue Heron, Kristin Routh Silberman and old-man Richard MacDonald get all the attention this week in my view with what is a remarkable and architecturally signifiant home now under contract and set to close on July 14th with all cash. I will address this property more below. Property photos and details can be seen on my website. If you have the time I recommend stopping by to take a look at it. The address is 681 Dragon Rock Drive Henderson Nevada 89012. MLS #2470225. The asking price, $13,900,000. The original list price was $14,500,000. It was on the market for 114 days before coming under contract with a nonMLS office on the buy side. Click here.

Sun West Homes’ Heavens Edge Court closed at ASCAYA last week and God is it Heavenly! Daniel S. Coletti B.0036474 designed it, built it and listed it (Sun West Luxury Realty). As previously reported, Ivan Sher BS.0046822 brought the buyer who closed all cash in less than 15 days. Well done Ivan! He’s the Goliath for a reason. Address is 3 Heavens Edge Court Henderson Nevada 89012 MLS #2397478. Closing price was $14,250,000 which is $1,486 p/sqft. This one was on the market for 338 days. The sale was worth the wait! Original list price was almost $16,000,000. This is the home I featured in this post today. See below.

Breaking down the SOLD gold. On average homes sold at a 5% discount off asking price with the 16% being the largest discount recorded and the highest premium over asking price was 7%. Sold homes accounted for 44 of the 175 homes that moved last week featuring a million dollar minimum price tag. Of the homes sold, 8 were without any view at all, 16 featured views of the mountains, 11 featured strip, 8 golf course, 7 city and or valley and 1 had a lake. Henderson accounted for 33% of the sales. Gated subdivions governed by CC&R’s made up nearly 80% and 75% had swimming pools. Zoned for Coronado High School was 6 and 7 others were near Gorman High School. Lots larger than a ¼ acre made up 68%. A third were sold all cash. And a little more than ⅓ were sold marked with “Other” which typically means they were financed by the seller or another private lender. Seventeen were built in 2014 or newer. Twelve were single story and 13 had at least a 4 car garage.. Average price per square foot was $421. And the average days on market was 49. Highest days on market caught the highest price and the highest price per square foot this week (Heavens Edge Court already addressed above). Of those sold the average home featured a 16,000 square foot lot, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 3 car garage and sold at a sales price of approximately $2,089,000 which was nearly 95% of the average asking price.

The highest priced home to come on the market last week was another one by Daniel S. Colleti and Sun West Custom Homes. I feel like I keep featuring Dan, Sun West and Henderson! 😉 This time he is at the top of MacDonald Highlands Country Club inside an even more exclusive subdivision within known as Stone Mountain Ridge. List price is $30,000,000. Address is 761 Dragon Peak Drive Henderson Nevada 89012. MLS# 2497892. Listed by Daniel S. Coletti of Sun West Luxury Realty.

My favorite home of the week came under contract with an asking price of $13,900,000. This is a Blue Heron home designed, built, decorated and furnished by now titan Tyler Jones, listed by Douglas Elliman of Nevada’s licensed veteran luxury real estate sales-agent and REALTOR Kristin Routh Silberman. The contracted buyer is a non-MLS office. Visit my website to see the property and details.

Remember, we have historically low distressed sales activity. Don’t listen to the dooms day prepares telling you there is a wave of foreclosures coming. There isn’t. They have it wrong! One sale from the bunch of 44 this week was distressed. That was MLS#2469348. The address was 7521 Captains Harbor Las Vegas Nevada 89117. It sold for $177 p/sqft.

be the change

My friend Julie Murray gave me the phrase be the change. It’s her moniker. It is the hallmark of her philanthropy consultancy Moonridge Group and the mantra attached to its signature annual event series known as the Philanthropy Leaders Summit. I was fortunate enough to participate as a sponsor for the two years leading up to C-19. Be the change was the message on the event marketing and branding materials at the time. The day Julie communicated it to me was the day I adopted it as my own. I haven’t let it go since. It’s wrapped around my arm. It’s on my steering wheel. It’s on my gear shift and has become part of my almost daily vernacular.

Thank you Julie Murray. You gave me something that will last a lifetime. A message I could connect with, a mantra I can turn to again and again to reset my compass when I stray.

I respect and admire Julie more than words can communicate. From Moonridge Group and the Philanthropy Leaders Summit to feeding food insecure people today through Delivering with Dignity Julie has always been committed to advancing the converations around doing good and doing good while she does it.

Click on Julie’s photo below to be delivered to her website for Delivering Dignity to learn more. The below photo was pulled from my diamond cake magazine archives. Julie was on the over. Jerry Metellus was the photographer. Jerry shot all 23 cover subjects for me over the two year period I owned and operated the magazine. He helped me make it, in my view, one of the most distinguished magazines in the market. Thank you to you too Jerry!


sold $1,374,900

1860 Jasmine Joy Street Las Vegas, Nevada 89117. The is one of my past sales. It is a two story home custom home on 1/2 acre lot in Section 10. The area was west Las Vegas. The home sold for $1,364,900. I represented the sellers. They are some of the most authentic, straight forward and real people I’ve met. Their home was an off market property whereby previous listing agents were unable to get the job of selling their home done. I got the job done and I did it to their satisfaction. That’s how I like to service my seller clients.
