In real estate, as in art, love at first sight must go hand in hand with the return on investment.
Originally from Brussels, Vanessa de Formanoir welcomes many Belgian investors and families each year who wish to develop a project in Miami. Very established in the international community of Miami, its clientele has grown locally, especially in the cutting-edge district of Edgewater where she has taken up residence with her husband and two children.
Thanks to a solid background in Contemporary Art (prestigious auction rooms, then publishing and insurance), Vanessa believes that in real estate, as in art, love at first sight must go hand in hand with return on investment. The emotion that can accompany a new project should not neglect the search for added value which will ensure double success in the medium or long term. Vanessa joined Barnes in this spirit of service and full support for customers, who appreciate her tenacity to find or sell a property at the best price, but also her total involvement in each project.
"After three years in Haiti, in Port-au-Prince, I fell in love with the energy and creativity of Miami where architecture, art and design come together today", comments Vanessa who appreciates as much the authenticity of the Art Deco district of South Beach, the creative energy of Wynwood, the friendliness of Mimo and the rapidly developing district of Edgewater.
In addition to Barnes and the time she spends with her family, Vanessa takes advantage of the many sports activities that the city of Miami offers due to its climate and infrastructure. She also appreciates the many cultural events taking place there (Adrienne Arsht Center, PAMM, etc.) such as the famous international fair Art Basel which attracts contemporary art enthusiasts from all over the world.

Bought a house in Miami in 2018
“Vanessa helped us buy an apartment in Miami. We are Europeans and we knew nothing about the Miami real estate market. Vanessa has a perfect knowledge of the local market and buildings in Miami. She was able to perfectly assess our needs and wishes. The apartment visits were therefore totally in accordance with our wishes. She helped us to make an objective choice between different goods. Thanks to her negotiating skills, the purchase price was in line with our budget. Ultimately the sale was settled in a very short time. "
