BCDC Top Picks for Miami Neighborhoods

When you purchase a home, you’re not simply investing in a house; you’re investing in a neighborhood. The quality of life you experience in your home is largely determined by the community where it’s located. From the residents to the amenities, each neighborhood comes with its own set of advantages (and disadvantages).

At the BCDC Group, we provide our clients with the inside track on Miami’s neighborhoods, including schools, amenities, public services and more. We deliver the backdrop on neighborhoods in consideration so that our clients can make informed, educated decisions with respect to their home purchase and ensure a Home Sweet Home for their loved ones.

Here are some of our top neighborhood picks in Miami:


Thanks to its proximity to Downtown Miami, the Financial District and the Design District, Edgewater is popular with families who want the perfect location to experience it all! There’s a great mix of early 20th-century homes and high-rise towers, reflecting the various needs of a mixed community.  Miami’s burgeoning arts’ communities and internationally-renowned museums are just steps away, as is some of Miami’s finest shopping, located in the Design District.

Coral Gables

Affectionately referred to as the “City Beautiful,” Coral Gables lives up to its name!  Its winding canals and lovely bridges make it a charming place to live, not to mention the various golf clubs and tennis courts scattered throughout the neighborhood. Downtown Coral Gables is home to some world-famous corporations and brands, and the restaurants and shops make it a hub of activity. Breathtaking old Spanish architecture and tree-lined streets highlight the gorgeous properties. Coral Gables is an ideal neighborhood for families, thanks to its central location and proximity to some of  Florida’s best schools. It’s also a quick 15-minute drive to Downtown Miami, and the Design District and Wynwood are in close proximity.


Also known as the Financial/ Business District, Brickell is an extraordinary neighborhood for its versatility! Brickell boasts new residential complexes with the most up-to-date amenities. Work in Downtown Miami? Save time and gas by taking up residence in one of its soaring skyscrapers with incredible views of Biscayne Bay.  Perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action, Brickell has a plethora of trendy dining, shopping and entertainment options. It’s a very walkable neighborhood, with shopping, theatres, schools and parks that give a well-rounded feel for growing families. Many moving from other states and countries love to call Brickell home.

Miami Beach

Likely the most famous part of the Magic City, Miami Beach flaunts a wide array of real estate – from modest homes to wildly wonderful waterfront mansions.  Miami Beach has a tremendous variety of things to do, promising that you’ll never be bored: paradise-like beaches, top restaurants, hottest nightclubs, fantastic shopping, the best in people watching and more. There’s also no shortage of exquisite, Spanish colonial architecture. And let’s not forget it’s the go-to destination for those wanting to cast their inhibitions aside and enjoy life to the fullest!


If you’re looking for a safe, family-friendly environment, then look no further than Pinecrest! Excellent public and private schools, picturesque tree-lined streets and more affordable housing costs than Coral Gables and Coconut Grove make Pinecrest a top choice for families. Though it lacks a true downtown or center of town, there are great  shopping and dining options in the adjacent commercial area known as “South Miami.”

Coconut Grove

What’s not to love about an old seaside village lovingly called “The Grove”? Coconut Grove’s enchantment lies in its natural beauty – gigantic oak trees, free-roaming peacocks and charming parks. It’s also a great place for families, thanks to beautiful single-family homes, fabulous new condos, top private schools, a growing list of restaurants, and a unique bohemian charm that teeters between relaxed and romantic and upscale chic. Lovers of art and culture will appreciate The Grove’s festivals, bookstores, markets, museums and abundance of outdoor cafes!
