  The Shoppes of Atlantis Florida in Palm Beach County   Along with living in beautiful City of Atlantis we also have close by The Shoppes of Atlantis.  My feature today is Rosalina’s Tex-Mex Grill located 5949 S. Congress Ave. (on the corner Congress Ave. & Lantana Rd.)  They strive to deliver the true taste of Tex-Mex cooking. They use only the freshest meats, fish, poultry, and locally grown produce. Their specialty favorites are quesadillas, chimichangas, burritos, enchiladas, and fajitas which are out of this world. They offer a great happy hour with specialty drinks. Their prices are very reasonable and have a great family atmosphere. They have won the best in Palm Beach as well as best of Boynton Beach four years in a row. Hope to see you there, for a wonderful dining experience....

  City of Atlantis Florida has a Water Park Too   One of the precious benefits of living in the City of Atlantis, Florida is our own secluded public park.  We also enjoy the fact we live in a manned gated community with no HOA dues. This has afforded us to have the luxuries that really are a secret to the outside public. Well one of these is a Water Park within the park, along with a covered picnic area and jungle gym for the kids. All of this in a protected area within our great city.   Keep in mind we have other things too, like the two golf clubs, (Atlantis Country Club, & Atlantis Golf Club), our own city hall and police station. Properties come in all shapes and sizes as well. If you are looking for a great place to call home in the heart of Palm Beach County call us today.

  Why I live in the City of Atlantis, Florida, came down to a few simple reasons; Location, Location, Location. See the city is almost right in the center of the county (Palm Beach), so travelling to Boca Raton, is the same distance as traveling to Palm Beach Gardens.  The other reason is The Atlantis Country Club, or should I say Club(s). We have two in this community, one private, and one public. What I wanted to touch on is the public club known as The Atlantis Country Club. It is located at 190 Atlantis Boulevard, Atlantis, Florida 33462. There phone number is (561) 965-7700 Just a brief historical overview:   A Bob Simmons designed course that opened in 1973 It measures 6610 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 137 It has a PGA rating of 72.2 The course features 4 ...

The Background: This lesson dates back to 1994, while completing my 10th year practicing real estate. It also marked my first  attempt to build my very own solo spec. house. While dabbling in both at the same time, I finally got enough nerve to take on a project with my own funds and skills. I have to say through a few set-backs, and cost overruns the home was completed without any major catastrophe. So far so good right?   Now, here is where it starts to take a slightly different turn, marketing the completed home. See the home was great, at least that is what I thought. Lesson 1: build to the area, not your desire. So, now we have a home a little different and priced, let say somewhat slightly higher for the area. Lesson 2: If you are going to build, it's better to be less than more. ...
