The most beautiful, well located and spectacular Real Estate firm in Miami Beach. 11 million people a year visit Lincoln Rd and many peruse our windows to list and buy their dream homes. 1335 Lincoln. Est. 2006.

Top-ranked Gary Hennes Realtors in Miami Beach’s still fun and trendy South Beach focuses on luxury residential and commercial real estate in Miami Beach, downtown Miami, Brickell, Surfside and other select areas of South Florida.
Gary Hennes, a licensed real estate agent for 30 years, founded the real estate firm 17 years ago.  With a diverse team of 54 Realtors, the firm has stubbornly fended off the larger New York and national franchise real estate agencies have rolled-up all of the other agencies in the area.

Instead, Gary Hennes Realtors has maintained a personal approach where agents are hand-selected with an emphasis on customer service, creating a boutique environment that encourages the men and women who carry Gary Hennes Realtors business cards to creatively sell properties rather than relying on simple luck and the Multiple Listing Service to achieve results that make buyers and sellers happy.  

The firm is located at 1335 Lincoln Road, just west of Alton, in a stunning, free-standing, modern building reflecting the firm’s aesthetic.
