Sales Director / Senior Realtor Associate, Brown Harris Stevens
A true Palm Beach native, Sabra Kirkpatrick, grew up on the Island, attended Palm Beach Day School, Cardinal Newman High School and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas with a B.A. in Advertising and Fine Arts. Sabra is one of the few local Realtors to have truly grown up on the island and is still glad to call it home.
Sabra Kirkpatrick has been selling Palm Beach County real estate for many years and truly loves what she does. Consistently closing around 65 properties annually, Sabra has proven success both in sales volume and overall sales prices. She has had tremendous success and is known for her local West Palm Beach knowledge both on and off waterfront continually holding the most Flagler Drive (waterfront) closings year after year.
Over the years Sabra has won many Real Estate related awards. In 2014 Sabra won the top Brown Harris Stevens award for “Listing Agent of the Year- Individual.” In 2015 she was also awarded Brown Harris Stevens “Top Listing Agent of Year,” “Top Listing Team of the Year,” & “Highest Land Sale of 2015.” Again, in 2016, Sabra was awarded “Top Listing Agent of the Year, 2016.”
Over the last four years, Sabra has worked closely with Lauren Greaves and Sarah Koenig. Together they have formed the “Kirkpatrick Team” at BHS which has allowed Sabra and her group to better service their clients. “As my mother has always said, “It takes a village!” I truly have the most magnificent village to work in and the most incredible team to work alongside!”
As much as Sabra loves selling real estate, she also holds charity near and dear to her heart. She is extremely involved with Meals on Wheels, Palm Beach County, “So No Senior Goes Hungry.” Sabra was the chairperson for the 2016 “Hot Meals- Hot Wheels” auction where she oversaw both fundraising and the auction event in totality. Playing the same role again in 2017, Sabra will yet again chair the M.O.W. auction to be held at the Beach Club in April 2017. An active member of St. Edward’s Catholic Church and St. Edward’s Women’s Guild, Sabra has twice chaired their annual Valentine’s Day Fashion Show and Auction and continues to give her support when needed. Sabra is a devoted single mother of three children who each attend different local schools. She can often be found in the stands at Phipps Park Baseball Field cheering on one of her children or running on Flagler Drive.
What is unique about your city and how long have you lived there?
Palm Beach County is awesome! The city is vibrant, sophisticated and full of out-of-towners 6 months every year. It is always changing! Palm Beach has whatever energy you are searching for. If you want to hang with surfers, go to Reef Road and watch them catch waves all day long. If you want a black tie gala, check out the Social Diary and attend an event based around what charity makes you tick. If you want a chill night shooting pool while sipping on Bourbon, go to Lost Weekends on Clematis Street. My point is, there is literally something for everyone in Palm Beach.

I was raised in Palm Beach and have been here my entire life… 40 years as a matter of fact. I also have three children who attend local schools, play baseball at the local parks and swim in the Atlantic Ocean.
Flagler Drive. The views of the Intracoastal are spectacular and the bike path stretches from downtown WPB to the southern most point of West Palm Beach, some 7+ miles long. Its a great Sunday drive and an even better run!
Is there a favorite architectural destination in your city?
You must take a stroll down Worth Avenue and also drive Ocean Blvd. You will see magnificent homes designed by renowned architects like Addison Mizner, John Volk, Maurice Fatio and Mrion Syms Wyeth to name a few. Designers like Mizner used more Spanish influence while Volk designed more traditional British West Indies style homes.
Where do you go to see art and what types?
We have fabulous art! Its everywhere.
The Norton Museum of Art is fabulous and HUGE. It is nestled right on the outskirts of downtown West Palm Beach on Dixie Highway. The grand re-opening is set for February 19, 2019 after a few years of extensive rebuilding, expansion and new art installs. Check it out: https://www.norton.org/about/history
The best art galleries are found in vilas on & off of Worth Avenue. My personal favorite is SurovekGallery who hosts many influential artists (I always have my eye on Stephen Scott Young). Visit them at: http://surovekgallery.com
Best workout, if you’re into that?
Ultima Fitness. Boxfit. Period. No other workout compares. It incorporates boxing and cardiobut no weights. I LOVE IT! Best workout of my life.

If you have $1,000 at what store would you spend it? Why?
Gosh, I am not much of a shopper but I would have to say C’Orrico on Palm Beach. It is the original Palm Beach shopping destination and family owned by three very cool women. They opened their doors in 1985 and even if you don’t want to spend big bucks, you always have fun sitting on their comfy sofas gossiping about the latest town news. They sell everything from Lilly Pulitzer belts to Milly dresses to Two Bees Cashmere. Visit them: https://www.corrico.com
If you have $1 at what store would you spend it? Why?
F.O.G. Field of Greens. Yummy super foods, delicious salads, small bites and tiny desserts too! Visit them: https://www.fieldofgreensonline.com
What opportunities to decompress does your city offer? Favorite place to relax and decompress?
Loaded question! Thanks to Mother Nature, we have the most pristine white sand beaches. Unwinding at the beach, with bottle (or two) of Rose and 2/3 girlfriends is priceless. If you are into Yoga, we have an amazing Yoga Studio called The Yoga Society and there many many classes every day. Visit them at https://www.theyogasocietypb.com
Lastly, if you are looking for a KILLER spa day… DO NOT miss the Eua Spa, Palm Beach. I’m a spa-snob and the Eau is the most amazing spa- EVER. The hotel used to be under the Ritz name/ management but Eau took it over and did a major $50 million spa renovation. I can’t say enough!!!!! BEST SPA IN AMERICA.

Best place to dine if you’re with family? Best place to dine without?
Gosh, we have so many awesome restaurants. Start off at Pizza Al Fresco (kids or no-kids). They are situated under the stars (and umbrellas) in a quaint vila off of Worth Avenue. Hand tossed pizzas, homemade pasta and a wine list for days. Next, for a more casual local experience, try E. R. Bradleys, downtown WPB and relax in your word shorts and flip flops overlooking the Intracoastal waterway peering across the lake at Henry Flagler’s home, now a museum while the children play a few games of basketball or pinball. With children of any age, try The Breakers Italian Restaurant. You do NOT have to stay there to eat there and they have a half court basketball set up, large playground, game room which is more like and arcade and an art room to entertain the children while the adults (civilly) eat. All three links attached: https://www.pizzaalfresco.com. https://www.erbradleys.com. https://www.thebreakers.com/dining/the-italian-restaurant/
Without children, if you are looking for amazing food, beautiful scenery and great people watching head over to The Royal Poincinana Plaza and have dinner at one of my favorites, either The Palm Beach Grill, Honor Bar or San Ambroeus. You will be entertained while fed. https://theroyalpoincianaplaza.com https://palmbeachgrill.com https://www.honorbar.com/locations/palmbeach/ http://www.santambroeus.com/restaurant-sant-ambroeus-palm-beach/
Where do you go if you have a sweet tooth?
My kids LOVE Sloan’s ice cream. They have delicious homemade ice cream and the space itself is super cool. Sloans also sells vintage candies for the adults who just want to relive their youth. http://www.sloansicecream.com
When we want adult desert, we go to The Blind Monk, downtown WPB. They have the best wine menu in town and their cheese/ fig plates are to-die-for! DO NOT skip this place (unless you don’t drink wine)! https://theblindmonk.com
Where do you go to “lunch” and where do you like to grab lunch?
My favorite eat-in casual lunch spot is Belle & Maxwells. Their food is amazing, the staff delightful and the owner is cheerful and super accommodating. (Make reservations in season, Dec- May). Bonus, they are now open for dinner too and serve wine and beer. This eclectic little place is a must-visit lunch spot that only locals know about. Visit them at: https://www.belleandmaxwells.com
Across the street you can pick up easy street tacos at Cholo Soy Cocina and take them home or eat-in in their picnic table back-yard restaurant. Ridiculously YUM-YUM! Its my 16 year olds favorite spot to eat in PBC. https://cholosoycocina.com
Is there a hidden gem in your city? In your opinion, what is it?
I’m in real estate so if you have time, take a drive through historic El Cid, just south of downtown West Palm Beach. The neighborhood has seen a huge resurgence in the last decade with many historic homes recently restored and brought back to life. it takes you back to Palm Beach circa 1924. If real estate isn’t your thing, head over to The Warehouse District on Elizabeth Ave. You can valet your car, cruise for slices of pizza, hand rolled ice cream bowls and shop at coolest new hip- trendy surf shop, Gypsy Surf, after picking up a beer at a local craft brewery. Fun for all ages! https://www.grandviewpublic.com/about-1/
