The founder of Pompano Beach-based PetMed Express put the Miami Beach residence he bought from recording artist Enrique Iglesias back on the market with a lower asking price.
Marc Puelo listed the home for sale with One Sotheby’s International Realty for $21.5 million after another realty firm failed to find a buyer last year, when the asking price started at $24.95 million and went lower before Puelo pulled the property off the market.
Public records show that Puelo, an anesthesiologist who founded PetMed in 1996, bought the five-bedroom home on Sunset Isle I in Miami Beach from Iglesias in 2004 for $7.85 million.
PetMed is a publicly traded pet-medication delivery service listed on the NASDAQ market under ticker symbol PETS.
Puelo’s bright yellow property occupies a lot measuring about half of an acre and features 150 feet of frontage on Biscayne Bay with views of downtown Miami. A full palette of colors light up the property’s exterior at night.
The Wall Street Journal also reported that the Latin pop star’s former residence comes with a guest house, an outdoor kitchen with a cover, a swimming pool that overlooks the bay, and a private dock.
Puelo told the Journal he has spent more than $4 million on improvements to the property, which spans about 6,700 square feet.

"Someone recommended Mr. Leo Gonzalez to help me with my house search. When I called him, he was inmediatly available and asked me what type of house I was looking for. He met me next day and only showed me houses that matched the criteria that I was looking for. Very punctual to all our appointments, Mr. Leo Gonzalez will always reply my e-mails or texts from his blackberry (so as soon as I asked him something, no matter what time it was he will answer inmediately), the way he presented himself was very professional, from the way he dressed to the way he talked. Very knowledgable. We found a house in less than 3 days. When it was time for me to make an offer, he negotiated everything, got me granite countertops, stainless steele appliances, the price went down thousands, he even negotiated with the loan processor so they could qualify me for a 100% loan. After we closed on the house, I couldn't wait in the office longer because I had to come back to work, he waited there and made sure that he received the house keys, then he drove to Brandon to drop them in my office. Bottom line, my experience with Mr. Leo Gonzalez was outstanding, I will recommend him to anyone, he definitely knows what he is doing"
