It’s been an active season for Olsson’s boutique firm, which in December represented the buyers in their $1.1 million purchase of a vacant lot across the bridge at 2501 S. Flagler Drive on the Intracoastal Waterway. It had been listed by Tom Davis of Coldwell Banker for sellers George and Cheryl Murphy through the Murphy Living Trust. Edwin and Linda Phelps were the buyers, according to the warranty deed.
Olsson is noting a renewed interest in the custom- and spec-home market with the sale of vacant lots such as that one, as well as others on the island, including Boykin’s aforementioned listing on Everglades Island.
Late last month, for instance, Olsson was the listing broker for another waterfront property at 3014 N. Flagler Drive, which changed hands for about $1.04 million. The house had been owned by the late Jane O’Meara and was sold by her son, Peter O’Meara, property records show.
