There were about fifteen properties that were sold over ten million in 2010.
There were only about eight.
Wow OK what we're looking at some of the properties from your website.

I think it is I think what happened in the market isn't obviously in 2009 and -- the market decreased considerably.
And buyers weren't buying to Wear short sales coming -- -- foreclosures -- -- read in the Paper on the news and understood that.
And it did hit its bottom at the -- and -- ten.
The beginning of eleven people started to come in and buy up the short sales the foreclosures and then into the single family homes and condos.
And realize it so our summer this last summer.
It was amazing the market basically doubled in sales -- opportunity.
I remember when there is not enough bad Ali empty condos the see through condos it's really changing warn you guys stories totally changed now.
Would you -- -- to something that Robert Shiller had to say which I thought was astonishing and and intensity of -- -- he's never very excited about the market.
He said that there would be no turnaround in housing prices in our life time.
-- -- what do you say.
I think he better go back and reevaluate everything happened because it is what's happened is.
I think what's happened is especially from the people from the United States.
There's a lot of potential tax.
Laws going into place next year and I think that's what's.
Bringing a lot of the hedge -- people down here.
What tax -- there's a lot of investment and there's there's no state income tax and Miami and well right I should always been that way.
-- chill Hertzberg what do you say to Shiller comments that -- never gonna get a recovery believe that.
Not what is happening now so it unfortunately has proven wrong I mean it is happening now.
And we are selling all those empty the -- Miami downtown quarter that was empty.
They're all sold out you can't even get the apartments now in the rental market has.
Actually taken off hop.
As hard to you know get those kind of deals anymore and really I think that by next summer those opportunities are going to be -- I -- the markets not flying up.

Who want to get into the market and her dying to find just the right property.
