Coral Gables, officially the City of Coral Gables, is a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States, located southwest of Downtown Miami. The United States Census Bureau estimates conducted in 2017 yielded the city had a population of 51,095. Coral Gables is home to the University of Miami.

Coral Gables was one of the first planned communities, and its planning was based on the popular early twentieth century City Beautiful Movement. It is infamous for its strict zoning regulations. The city was developed by George Merrick during the Florida land boom of the 1920s. The city's architecture is almost entirely Mediterranean Revival style, mandated in the original plan, including the Coral Gables Congregational Church, donated by Merrick. The domed Catholic Church of the Little Flower was built somewhat later, in a similar Spanish Renaissance style. By 1926, the city covered 10,000 acres (4,000 ha) and had netted $150 million in sales, with over $100 million spent on development.

Merrick meticulously designed the downtown commercial district to be only four blocks wide and more than two miles (3 km) long. The main artery bisected the business district. Merrick could boast that every business in Coral Gables was less than a two-block walk. The city used to have an electric trolley system, which was replaced by the popularity of modern automobiles, but now a new free circulator trolley system, initiated in November 2003, runs down Ponce de León Boulevard.

In 1925, roughly simultaneous to the founding of Coral Gables, the city was selected as the home to the University of Miami, which was constructed that year on 240 acres (97 ha) of land just west of U.S. Route 1, approximately two miles south of downtown Coral Gables.

During World War II many Navy pilots and mechanics were trained and housed in Coral Gables.

Today, Coral Gables is known as the Fine Dining Capital of South Florida. The city of Coral Gables has many things to be proud of, like their Class, I fire department, a fully accredited police department and the top award ranking for their Building and Zoning Department.*

Why Alina F. Nuñez, Esq. does both Wills and Probate Law & Real Estate Law in the city of Coral Gables, Florida?


Real Estate property is all too often at the nexus of INHERITANCE DISPUTES. It is very common for an elderly parent to transfer property to only one child or other family member with the intention that upon their (the parents') death, proceeds from the sale of the real property will be shared with the other family members. This often does not happen, and filing a law suit is usually the only way to settle this type of dispute.

Do I really need a Real Estate Attorney even if I live in Coral Gables?


Most of us making Miami Dade County or Coral Gables our home have been affected by real estate law as an owner, seller, broker, lender, borrower, contractor, or other arrangement. The body of law dealing with real estate is varied and large and often misinterpreted. An attorney experienced in real estate law should be consulted when dealing with real estate matters, especially if the matter involves:


  • PURCHASE AND SALE CONTRACTS 
  • SALE BY OWNER 
  • ESCROW INSTRUCTIONS 
  • SECURED LOANS 
  • TITLE PROBLEMS 
  • INHERITANCE ISSUES


 Much of real estate law is really Contract Law

Contract Law: Legal matters involving real estate often deal with agreements (contracts) between two or more persons (parties). Purchase and Sale Agreements, Escrow Instructions, Promissory Notes and Trust Deeds, Real Estate Listing Agreements, and Home Improvement Agreements, are all governed by contract law. 

It Is Crucial That You Understand The Contract You Are Signing !!!    

Remember that your failure to read and/or understand the contract is not a defense if disputes arise. If you sign a contract, the law presumes that you both read and understood the terms of the agreement. 


SALE BY OWNER - a way to reduce the costs of selling property? Perhaps, but it can also provide an open door for problems. It is imperative that you fully understand the effect that the legal process and related laws can have on the transaction and your ownership status, and you must know the various documents that are needed or required by law. Seek professional legal assistance to help avoid the many problems that arise under these circumstances.    

TITLE ("ownership status"): Title problems frequently arise in real estate matters. In order to properly resolve title issues you need a full understanding of title law in Miami, Florida and you need to understand the role a title insurance company plays regarding title or ownership status. 

ESCROW agents are generally part and parcel of every real estate transaction in the eastern U.S. It is important to understand the function of such agents' their duties and responsibilities to each party. 

Secured LOANS are the loans given in exchange for a promise to repay the loan. The promise to repay is most often backed or secured by filing a deed of trust "against" your real property. A deed of trust gives power to the lender to foreclose or take possession of your property should you fail to repay the loan as agreed. It is vital that you fully understand the terms of your loan agreement and the effect the trust deed may have on your continued ownership of the property.
