Abstract: In his review of Miami: Mistress of the Americas by Jan Nijman, CRE Joe Parker remarks on the uniqueness of Miami and how, without ever becoming important during its early years of development as a domestic city, it evolved into a truly international city of commerce with a diverse population that defines its culture today. Parker notes the book should be required reading for every permanent and part-time resident of South Florida, and for those real estate practitioners who are interested in another perspective of what really goes behind the scenes in making and shaping a real estate market.
