About Sabbia Beach

It’s been nearly a decade since the coastline of Pompano Beach welcomed a new high-end residential development—but the wait will be worth it thanks to the oceanfront drama about to unfold at Sabbia Beach. The exclusive 19-story property features 68 residences, starting from the $900,000s, and a 30,000-square-foot private beach. Though much of Sabbia Beach is sold, select residences remain available—including the elegant Barona model, a three-bedroom, four-bath jewel that boasts more than 2,500 square feet of living space, as well as a 480-square-foot wraparound balcony with ocean views. Delivery is expected in less than a year. Call 954.781.9700 for a private preview or visit sabbiabeachcondos.com for general information.

Meet Alexandra

Since taking a down-home dip into the reality TV pool back in 2011, model Alexandra Agro has made professional splashes all over the world. Agro, currently living in Fort Lauderdale, first turned heads on the second season of the CMT dating show “Sweet Home Alabama.” Two years later, she reached the final seven (out of 32 semifinalists) on “America’s Next Top Model.” From there, Agro traveled near and far on fashion assignments, modeling in New York, Spain, Greece, Italy, Indonesia and China. Agro also is an advocate for the heart condition from which she suffers, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.
