South Florida Luxury Teams Join Forces
Longtime Miami-Dade luxury real estate titans The Jills and The Zeder Team join forces to create The Jills Zeder Group with Coldwell Banker.
Two major players in the luxury residential real estate industry, The Jills® and The Zeder Team, are combining to form The Jills Zeder Group, affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. Prior to the Zeder Team’s recently announced affiliation with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, the two teams closed a combined total of more than $5 billion in real estate sales including collaborating on multiple luxury sales in the Coral Gables market.
The Jills’ team family members are founders Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber; Hertzberg’s children Danny Hertzberg and Hillary Hertzberg; and Jill Eber’s sister Felise Eber. The Zeder Team is comprised of Judy Zeder and her children, Nathan Zeder and Kara Zeder Rosen.
Coldwell Banker recently named The Jills its No. 1 residential real estate team in Florida for the 15th consecutive year. In addition, The Jills were named the No. 1 large team across the country for Coldwell Banker NRT.
The 2018 REAL Trends report as published in The Wall Street Journal ranked The Jills No. 1 among all teams in Florida. The team led Florida in sales volume for the sixth consecutive year and was the only South Florida team to rank in the Top 50 nationally. In addition, they received the Society of Excellence award — the highest award level for sales associates for Coldwell Banker — in 2018.
The 2018 REAL Trends report ranked The Zeder Team No. 1 in Coral Gables.
The Jills team, founded nearly 25 years ago by Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber, specializes in high-end, multi-million-dollar luxury properties in South Florida’s most elite enclaves representing celebrities, Fortune 500 executives and diverse international clientele. The Jills have been ranked the No. 1 team internationally five times by Coldwell Banker. They have sold over $4 billion in real estate since.
Some of The Jills’ high-profile 2018 sales include 4395 Pine Tree Drive, located in Pine Tree Drive’s exclusive estate section, for $19.25 million, the highest selling price on Pine Tree Drive in the year prior. Additionally, they sold 100 S. Pointe Dr., #3803, which was the highest sale in two years at the exclusive Continuum South Tower in Miami Beach, and the highest sale in the entire Continuum building (both towers) in over a year. The Jills’ top three sales are 3 Indian Creek Drive for $47 million in 2012, the Versace Mansion, located at 1116 Ocean Drive, for $41.5 million in 2013, and 42 La Gorce Drive for $30 million in 2013.
The Zeder Team has specialized in representing buyers and sellers of high-end residential real estate for over two decades, with a primary focus on Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Ponce Davis, South Miami, Pinecrest, and Palmetto Bay. They particularly excel in Miami waterfront and luxury real estate. Some of The Zeder Team’s high-profile sales include the $23.46 million sale of 9 Tahiti Beach Island Rd. in Coral Gables, $17.2 million sale of 555 Leucadendra Dr. in Coral Gables, $12.437 million sale of 3307 Devon Ct. in Miami, and $12.4 million sale of 150 Arvida Pkwy in Coral Gables.
