Sovereign Real Estate Group’s Robert Coalla Talks about Weston’s Windmill Reserve

Windmill Reserve is one of the most exclusive enclaves of luxury homes in Broward County. The estate residences in this private gated community in Weston are nestled among 139 acres of lakes and accented by pristine preserve views. Sovereign Real Estate Group represents 13th Floor Investments in offering the final eight home sites for sale. Broker Robert Coalla, with Sovereign Real Estate, explains why this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for prospective home buyers.

What is the connection between Sovereign Real Estate Group and 13th Floor Investments?

13th Floor Investments is an investment and development firm. It purchased in bulk the 22 remaining lots in the exclusive, gated, 94-home community of Windmill Reserve in April 2017. 13th Floor realized that once these lots were sold, there would be no way to recreate such a development as there simply is no more land available in such a desirable community. Sovereign Real Estate Group is a full-service real estate firm and is proudly the exclusive sales representatives for these remaining lots in Windmill Reserve. These are the final lots of this kind available for sale anywhere in Broward County.

Has Sovereign Real Estate Group been able to generate new interest in Windmill Reserve?

Absolutely! With just one year of sales, we have successfully sold 14 of the luxury home site lots, with only eight remaining. We are confident the Sovereign Real Estate team of professionals will quickly close-out this community.   

Beyond sale of the home site, what services can you offer to prospective luxury home buyers?

Although we are only offering the sale of the lots themselves, we do have financing available through a local community bank to help the buyer purchase the lot, provide the financing for construction of the home, and then have the loan converted into a permanent home mortgage with excellent rates and terms. In addition, we have been referring buyers to three local, reputable luxury home builders that are all currently active in the construction of several homes within the community today. Buyers can meet with these experienced home builders and their architects to explore the many options for designing their new luxury home.

Why do you think there has been a resurgence of buyers in this development?

Buyers who visit Windmill Reserve are impressed with how magnificent the community looks. It is truly remarkable to see how well the different architectural styles have blended together. This is not your cookie-cutter community. We have homes that are inspired in the style of a French chateau next to a colonial home that is near a hacienda-style design, a Mediterranean and today’s popular modern-contemporary designs. We are thrilled to be a part of the sale of the final, undeveloped, ready-to-build home sites in the City of Weston. These excellent acre sites are all well priced, offering sidewalks as well as water and sewer. There is nothing like it anywhere. This opportunity will never be available again. Once these lots are gone, they are gone.

Why is Weston such a great place to live?

Weston is a family-oriented, master-planned community that is continually named one of the best places to live in Florida and the country by prestigious publications such as Money Magazine and Family Circle. According to the City’s website, Weston offers A-rated public schools and excellent private schools; outstanding public safety and the lowest crime rate per capita in the County; 14 park and recreational facilities which play host to cultural and community events and tens of thousands of registrants in organized sports leagues; a Community Center which offers a variety of year-round enrichment classes and programming for all ages and interests, as well as the Weston YMCA Family Center within the City’s regional park; the lowest combined property taxes, municipal taxes and fees in the County; the lowest millage rate in the County; and meticulously maintained lush landscaping throughout the city. In addition, Weston offers a variety of cultural programs for residents ranging from puppet shows and magic acts for children to a foreign film festival and performances by the Symphony of the Americas orchestra. Popular annual events within the community include the Hometown Fourth of July Celebration, Celebrate the Arts Day, and Weston World Fest.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

For me personally, it’s exciting to be back in sales in Weston, as I was part of the original 26 agent New Home Sales team with Arvida, the developer for the City of Weston. During the mid-90’s through 2001, Arvida sold nearly 1,400 newly-built homes per year. So, out of the nearly 20,000 home dwellings built in Weston since 1986, we are now selling the final eight home sites. This is truly a rare opportunity — especially to be able to choose your own builder and architectural design.
