My Thoughts on Wilton Station

As a Fort Lauderdale Gay Realtor I find that many clients are drawn to Wilton Station because of its location – literally just steps away from Wilton Drive with all its entertainment options, gay bars and stores.

Wilton Station is also very popular for its amenities – the complex has a resort style pool and an amazing gym.

Clients also like the fact it is gated and guarded – as many buyers purchase units in Wilton Station as a 2nd home / vacation home.

Wilton Station is pet friendly for larger pets / dogs over 20 lbs too which is a really nice feature!

My Thoughts on Manor Grove

As a Fort Lauderdale Gay Realtor I find that the range of units and type of units for sale from town homes to condos appeals to many Gay and LGBT buyers – simply put there is usually a good range of options!

Also more and more updated “turn key” units are being offered for sale – which also appeals to many buyers.

Clients also like the complexes “price points” – as Manor Grove truly offers great value for the money. A number of units also have a washer / dryer in the unit which for many buyers is a must!

Some complexes in Manor Grove are pet friendly for cats and dogs – there are weight restrictions for dogs.  In pet friendly buildings you are able to have 2 dogs up to 20lbs!

My Thoughts on River Shores

As a Gay Realtor I find that many Gay and LGBT clients are not even aware of this great Fort Lauderdale condo complex here in Oakland Park – it is like an undiscovered jewel!

The complex was built-in the 1960’s is set on 9 acres of waterfront and many units have great water views.  

The waterfront pool area is superb and owners can also have boat dockage too!

There is also a tennis court, clubhouse & bbq area.

While the complex is in Oakland Park it is very close to both Wilton Drive, down town Ft Lauderdale and to the beach – Sebastian Beach the gay beach is around 10 – 12 minutes away by car!

Important to note is that this complex also has 2 other buildings / complexes within it  – these are River Bend and River Terrace.

Prices in there are typically around the $195,000 – $225,000 range for larger 2 bedroom units.

My Thoughts on Lake Emerald

As a Fort Lauderdale Gay Realtor – I always suggest to my Gay and LGBT buyers that they look at this great complex.

Lake Emerald is a gated community on a 168 acre lake with 24 hour security and a guard at the gate. 

The Community is popular with gay buyers and has many amenities including clubhouse, library, exercise room, 3 pools and tennis courts. Residents can enjoy swimming, sailing, boating, and fishing in the lake. 

Many units offer incredible lake views from there screened balconies.  Many units also have their own washer/dryer.

Note: Despite all the positives with this complex and there are a lot – there are some management and deferred maintenance issues.
