Beverly Aluise Knight, Top-Producing Beach Area Broker, is your luxury waterfront specialist, passionately representing only the finest multi-million dollar Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway properties. She exclusively serves clients seeking to buy or sell luxury homes and vacant land in her own niche market neighborhoods – the seaside communities of the South Palm Beaches and Broward County. A 33-year resident of beautiful Highland Beach and Boca Raton, Bev primarily deals with properties in Highland Beach, Boca Raton, Hillsboro Mile, Delray Beach, Gulf Stream, Ocean Ridge and Manalapan, although she can expand this range, as clients require.
Doing What She Loves - And Doing It Well!
Bev’s career in the highly specialized field of high-end residential real estate is the culmination of a life-long interest in architecture, design and marketing. In 1977 she earned a B.S. degree with honors in Advertising and Design and boldly put her skills to work at Aluise Design, her own Ft. Lauderdale firm dedicated to corporate and real estate promotion. For over 20 years, Aluise Design was an active and influential player in the Florida real estate boom. As owner/art director, Bev personally designed and produced award-winning brochures as well as full advertising campaigns and on-site sales materials for some of the area’s most prestigious luxury home and gated country club communities. Serving major clients from Miami to Palm Beach, a few of Aluise Design’s local clients included The Sanctuary, St. Andrews Country Club, Dan Swanson/Addison Development and Polo Club of Boca Raton.
As a natural extension of her growing interest in home sales, Bev became a Licensed Real Estate Professional in 1999. For a time, she was a successful partner in Arvida Real Estate Services’ Platinum Estate Properties, with $35.6 million in team sales in her first six months! In 2001, Bev and her developer husband opened Ocean Estate Properties LLC, originally to build, market and sell three magnificent direct oceanfront estates in Highland Beach.
Bev's hands-on experiences with these properties, which included site selection, design, construction and marketing, as well as her past appointment as Chairman to the Planning Board of the Town of Highland Beach, give her an edge over most real estate professionals. Having been through all aspects of real estate development, Bev truly understands and can anticipate the needs of her clients. Over the years, Bev's enthusiasm for fine architecture, luxury interiors and the natural beauty of waterfront communities has grown along with her sales expertise. Her passion for connecting people with the right waterfront property resonates with buyers and sellers alike.
Your Broker - Today - Ocean Estate Properties.
The same sound business practices, attention to detail and communication skills that made Bev an in-demand designer for over 20 years, have made her a highly effective seller of waterfront homes for the past two decades.

She provides candid assessments of the market and your property, detailed documentation, skillful contract review and expert negotiations to assure a smooth transaction for all.
When you hire Bev Knight, you will understand why people choose her to be their trusted partner and advocate in their real estate transactions.
“I interviewed and subsequently hired Bev to list my water front home in Highland Beach in '09. She was very honest and straight forward with what the status of the market was and what I could expect. She communicated very well throughout the process and sold my home in a very difficult time for real estate.
Consequently, when I invested in the same area a couple of years later, she helped me and my new wife find a wonderful home and negotiate a very reasonable price for us.
Now, three years later we are selling and moving up again. We hired Bev to sell our house and she not only sold it a very short time, the net result exceeded our expectations!!!! A lot of this had to do with her advice on the purchase side several years before. I would recommend her to anyone that is either buying or selling real estate in the Delray, Highland Beach or Boca Raton Area. You could not find a more knowledgeable, honest, or likable agent.”
Rob Nicholson, President & CEO of East Coast Appliances, Virginia Beach, Virginia
“After selling and buying 16 homes, we found the world’s best Realtor -- Bev Knight. She sold our last home and found our current one in just three weeks.”
Former Mayor Jim Newill- Highland Beach, FL
“The best recommendation you can receive in using someone for a service, is one you are given by more than one person. I received several raving referrals for Ms. Beverly Knight of Ocean Estate Properties from neighbors and area friends when looking to list my Highland Beach home. I am so glad I did!
She not only was able to sell my oceanfront home in a very taxing market, but found me another one shortly after with the same calming effect as the beach sale. She handled everything from
start to finish with attention to every detail.
The best endorsement I can give to Bev, is that I would never use another Realtor, and that now, I not only consider her my Realtor, but my friend!”
Denise Martin Safford, Former Byrd Beach Resident, 2455 S. Ocean Blvd, Highland Beach, FL
“Bev Knight is a dynamite real estate agent -- dedicated, energetic, resourceful, always there for you, always cheerful, always thinking of new ways of getting your property out there, always willing to go the extra mile.
As an out-of-town seller of an oceanfront "handyman's special", I depended on her for everything. From lining up lawn service to contacting contractors, she was always a step ahead in knowing what needed to be done.
With her outgoing exuberance, her years of living in Highland Beach, and her history of service on its Boards and Committees, she has an amazing Rolodex of people who can help solve any problem.
My only regret in selling the Sea Frolic is that I will no longer have an excuse to call on Bev for advice, help, and friendship. She's the best!”
