73 N Conch Avenue, Conch Key - One of my Favorite of all the Florida Keys is tiny Conch Key.  Being The Conchquistador, it would have to be right???!! Just south of Islamorada and north of Duck Key, is historic, Conch Key, one of the last Keys that makes you feel like you stepped back in time.  Conch Key still maintains its quaint fishing village feel, resplendent with gorgeous sunsets over the vast Gulf, the smell of salt in the air, and the sites of graceful tarpon gently rolling in the Long Key Channel. If you are looking for "Old Time Keys Living"...This is the Place!Today's Deal, affectionately known as "The Preacher's House",  looks like its right out of a 1930's Come to The Keys Brochure! 73 N Conch Avenue, Conch KeyList Price: $499,000 / Sold Price: $385,000Original Price: $799,...

95551 Overseas Hwy, Key Largo    WOW!!!  Probably one of the Best Keys Deals...EVER!!  Short Sales even affect the wealthy ... as is evidenced by this recently closed sale in Key Largo at Mile Marker 95! Recently there have been some Big price drops in some huge properties like the recently oceanfront  foreclosure sale in Islamorada for $2,150,000.  This creates some fantastic opportunities for some big ticket Keys buyers, as these prices greatly impact other property values for comparable properties.  This property was originally listed at $6,595,000 and previously sold at $4,400,000. So, what does $2.5M get you theses days???  2 Acres on the Water, a 5-bedroom, 2003 built 9,000+ sq ft home., with stunning finishes and a pier with boat lift.  These are some unbelievable prices at are p...

When I was a teenager, back when it was legal to catch local Conch, I used to take such delight in making my own Conch Horns.  I actually had a nice little business selling them to friends and classmates, as they were great noisemakers at football games!At one Point, I actually had a whole octave of horns.  And might I say the conch salad, from those was awesome!Recently, a world-record attempt was held at Sundowner's in Key Largo.Showcasing their spirit and pucker power, 142 conch shell blowers gathered at a Florida Keys bayfront eatery to beat a world record attempt of the most people simultaneously blowing a conch shell. The group surpassed a previous record set in 2009 of 127 simultaneous conch honkers that was sanctioned by the World Records Academy, one of several organizations th...
