RealOpen Lights Up Miami

The $33.9 million penthouse at The Regalia can now be purchased with cryptocurrency

MIAMI, May 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —  Pordes Residential today announces that The Penthouse at Regalia is now featured on RealOpen, the platform founded by ‘Selling Sunset’ star Christine Quinn and her tech entrepreneur husband, Christian Dumontet. Following multi-million-dollar listings in New York City and Los Angeles, this $33.9 million ultra-luxury penthouse is the first South Florida property to be featured on the platform and offered directly to the crypto community.

RealOpen offers a real estate express lane for crypto asset holders, merging the traditional real estate process with the digital future of global finance. Using secure, proprietary software, it allows anyone, anywhere to purchase or sell any home via crypto—with the seller receiving cash at closing. RealOpen’s concierge service enables buyers to retain crypto holdings up until the day of closing. For home sellers and listing agents RealOpen expands the potential buyer pool through exposure to the crypto community.

“We knew immediately,” said Christine Quinn, CMO and Founder of RealOpen. “Our platform bridges the gap between luxury real estate and Miami’s deep crypto community. The Penthouse at Regalia is the perfect introduction of RealOpen to Miami.”

Listed by Mark Pordes of Pordes Residential, the 43rd-floor penthouse is three levels including a private rooftop pool deck. It’s the largest condo on the Miami market, boasting 10,755 square feet of indoor living plus 6,050 square feet of 360-degree, wraparound terrace. In addition to six bedrooms and six bathrooms, the layout includes a glass wine cellar, lounge theater, bar and billiards room, and a $1M master bathroom with private spa, steam room, sauna, and massage area. Located on Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach and with no hi-rise neighbors, the residence offers 360-degrees of truly uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean, Golden Beach, Intracoastal Waterway and the skylines of Miami and Miami Beach.

“Bringing the Penthouse at Regalia to RealOpen and joining the cryptocurrency movement further solidifies that this residence is a unique and high-caliber offering,” said Mark Pordes, Principal of Pordes Residential. “We are thrilled to be pioneers in this space and look forward to a lasting relationship with this innovative platform and team.”

“We act as active real estate investors in the properties we represent and have earned a reputation as specialists in brokering and acquiring bulk luxury condominium assets,” said Mark Pordes, CEO of Pordes Residential. “We know the penthouse at Regalia is in a league of its own and that is why we led the investment team that purchased it at auction in 2021.”

The collaboration between RealOpen and Pordes was orchestrated by the RealOpen Miami Team: crypto-specialist Realtors Karley Chynces, Bozana Cavar, and Kiki Rutten of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.
