Tampa Bay Philanthropist and Bella Capri Owner Dr. Kiran Patel Selects Debbie Newman of Smith & Associates to Market Luxury Gulf Coast Condo Community on Indian Rocks Beach

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH, Fla., August 15, 2011 – Tampa Bay real estate firm Smith & Associates, a premier broker of high-end homes and luxury condominiums in Florida, is pleased to announce it has secured an exclusive listing agreement for Bella Capri condominiums on Indian Rocks Beach. Perched along 200 feet of private Florida beachfront property and gleaming white sand, the gated Gulf Coast condo community features Mediterranean-inspired architecture and 23 elegant residences.

Prospective buyers seeking Florida condos for sale will find numerous distinctions that set Bella Capri apart. The four-story Gulf Coast condo offers breathtaking views, exceptionally spacious interiors and five-star amenities. East-facing units overlook a tree-lined inlet, while west-facing units enjoy the panoramic Gulf vista that is the hallmark of this Florida beachfront property.

All Bella Capri residences have multiple balconies, including an airy front veranda that is ideal for alfresco dining. Corner units boast multiple bay windows and a private balcony along the side, while the center units have balconies or direct courtyard access to the enchanting, climate-controlled atrium at the heart of the building. Palm trees, Italian tile and a relaxing fountain adorn this “Centro Terrazzo” – one of the many unique features that make Bella Capri stand out among other luxury condominiums in Florida.

Eight residences grace each of the top three floors of this stunning Florida beachfront property, while the lower level consists of secure covered parking – including private two-car garages for each of the penthouse units. Semi-private, key-access elevators serve just two units on each floor. Among the highlights of the Bella Capri interiors are 10-foot tray ceilings, travertine flooring, a gourmet kitchen and a spa-like master bath with jetted whirlpool tub. The Gulf Coast condo also has a large pool deck with a heated swimming pool, cabana and direct access to the beach.

Bella Capri is owned by local philanthropist Dr. Kiran Patel, who has numerous property holdings throughout the Tampa Bay area. In addition to his real estate portfolio, Dr. Patel maintains an active involvement in many community projects. He and his wife Pallavi launched the University of South Florida’s Kiran C. Patel Center for Global Solutions, a not-for-profit organization focused on funding global health solutions. The Patels also helped build the Pepin Heart Hospital and Dr. Kiran C. Patel Research Institute – the Southeast’s first all-digital cardiovascular center.

Now that his Gulf Coast condo community is ready to welcome its first residents, Dr. Patel has granted Smith & Associates and Broker-Associate Debbie Newman exclusive marketing privileges for this spectacular Florida beachfront property. As the largest independent real estate firm in the Tampa Bay area, Smith & Associates has established itself as the preferred destination among individuals seeking Florida condos for sale. Smith & Associates and Ms. Newman are highly regarded by both buyers and sellers for their extensive experience and proven expertise in selling luxury condominiums in Florida.

“Dr. Patel’s confidence in us is well-placed,” said Robert Glaser, CEO of Smith & Associates Real Estate. “Our firm has been in business for 41 years, and we have participated in the sale of most of the area’s luxury homes priced at $1 million and above. Debbie alone is responsible for selling more than 500 condo units since 2004. She has consistently been ranked as the number one agent in Pinellas County, and was once again awarded the title in 2010.”

Among the available luxury condominiums in Florida, beachfront property remains the most desirable. Glaser notes that Bella Capri represents an outstanding opportunity for the right buyers. “When the housing market crashed a few years ago, many developers abandoned their projects before even breaking ground – so it’s unusual to find new construction of this quality and in such a premium location coming onto the market right now. In addition, mortgage interest rates have reached their lowest point this year, which is great news for those looking to finance.”
