Perhaps the most surprising locale to land on the Coldwell Banker list, though, is Florida’s Miami Beach. The 33139 ZIP code alone had seven sales priced above $10 million as of June — and activity has surged since then. Coldwell Banker’s Miami-based power broker team The Jills count a staggering 25 sales of $10 million or more from Fisher Island to Golden Beach from June 2011 through the first week of September 2012, plus several sales at the St. Regis in Bal Harbour and six in Coral Gables to the south. The duo recently closed on a $47 million mansion on Indian Creek Island in Miami’s most expensive sale ever and hold the listing for the $125 million Versace Mansion.
