 TECO - Tampa Electric There are over 650,000 homes and businesses located in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties which are customers of TECO – Tampa Electric at Big Bend Power Station, Big Bend Road, Apollo Beach Florida.  Big Bend Power Station has four coal fired units that generate a total of about 1,700 megawatts.  Tampa Electric uses coal and natural gas to produce electricity in a responsible manner for the environment. The manatee viewing center next to the power station is the best example. A machine called a turbine is used in the production of the electricity; heat from the burning coal turns water inside boilers to steam, which then turns the power station’s four turbines.  Each turbine is part of a process that makes 22,000 volts of electricity per unit at the s...

Manatees are mammals, and look like a walrus without the tusk. There are approximately 5,000 in Florida waters, with censuses usually being taken in the winter when these gentle giants are easier to count in the shallower water. Being vegetarians, manatees eat up to 15% of their weight daily, and can reach lengths of 10 feet or more with weights of 1,200 pounds.  Babies are three feet long, and about 70 pounds at birth. Because they breathe air (but don’t leave the water), they are susceptible to injury or death from boats – especially late in the year when they move into warm shallow waters.  Some individual manatees can be identified by the scars on their backs from boat propellers.   As Florida’s winter visitors arrive and boat activities increase, extra vigilance is needed with an i...

As you can see by the chart below, the number of licensed REALTORS® from the year 2000 projected out to 2013, has grown from 770,000 in 2000 almost doubled to 1,000,400 in 2006.  Since the peak in 2006, the numbers have been falling. As the going got tough, some got going. And I’m not talking about the tough guy buckling into the business, some just ran away.  Going into next year, we project less than 1,000,000, that’s almost a 400,000 drop off in the number of agents. – Courtesy of KCM Crew While some agents turn away from real estate, others like myself, have learned the ins and outs of short sales, foreclosures, REOs and what it takes to help my clients achieve their real estate goals.  I have the following certifications to help you and anyone you may know that is facing a real est...

I was just about to turn my computer off for the night on May 15, at about 10:30 p.m. when I decided to check my email one last time for the day. Much to my surprise I had an email with the Subject: White House Forum on Housing for Florida Leaders. Excitedly, I opened the mail to find an invitation from The White House, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture for me to join senior Obama Administration officials and fellow Florida Leaders for a White House Forum on Housing, on June 4, 2012 at The White House. I couldn’t believe it, nor could I contain my excitement! The first person I emailed was my business coach Michael Maher. He shared my excited with me and then we both carefully reviewed the in...

PURCHASE AND REHAB YOUR HOME IN APOLLO BEACH FLORIDA WITH THE FHA 203(K) LOAN - Most home buyers are turned off at the sight or even thought of buying a fixer-upper; a foreclosure or an older home today. However, educated and informed home buyers are utilizing the FHA 203(k) loan to buy their new home and fix it up with no additional out-of-pocket expense. The FHA 203(k) loan is a tool that savvy home buyers, successful contractors, Realtors and mortgage originators have been using since 1978. An FHA 203(k) loan is very similar to the traditional FHA loan. The only real difference is that with the FHA 203(k) loan, the home buyer is adding money to their mortgage balance to finance-in any repair/improvement cost. Whereas the traditional FHA loan requires that certain repairs be done befo...
