   Have you ever booked showings for your listings and then had a Realtor call to tell you that her customers were running late or that they pulled up and just did not want to see the home? I sometimes have this happen and am always so glad that the Realtor took the time to call me and give me a...

Have you ever wondered who or why home color trends come about?  I did on the day I showed this particular buyer homes from all decades, as St. Augustine has homes going back to the 1800’s!  Although we weren’t looking at historical homes, we were investigating homes from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s on ...
How many times in the past few years have you had a really great listing, clean, nice location, soft neutral colors, great curb appeal, wonderful neighborhood, and best of all, outstanding sellers who understand the market and price competitively to sell? Well, not often, but when you do have one...

What a terrible headline this week about 101 year old Texana Hollis who was put out in the street because her son failed to let her know that he was not making her mortgage payments. Sorry, but in my opinion someone ought to shoot this man! It really makes me wonder who actually took the mortgage...

Did you know that a review of our nation's history shows that eight of the last 10 recessions have ended as a result of robust housing markets?  Yeah... bring on that recovery!!! Our country has found itself in the midst of a lasting recession, mounting debt, wide-spread unemployment and a fragil...

It is a shame that it has come to this, but agents, both men and women, should really think before they show a home or host an open house. We have not had any known incidents here in Saint Augustine Florida, but the crime is up here and everywhere and it is, I am sure, just a matter of time, bef...

It used to be that you could be a good agent and do a good job and that was enough. It was all that it took. Today is a totally different world. With the financial chaos, political problems and national debt in the trillions, our buyers and sellers need us more than ever. They are afraid to buy,...

After the reenactment of the Spanish settler’s arrival there will be...

As Realtors, we hear it all the time. Buyers continue to wait for "the bottom" before they buy. After seeing so many homes and a few that they really really loved, I gave this example to buyers that I was working with. You know, every year Macys has  great sale. The first day offers the best sele...
For many years Saint Augustine has been known as a sleepy little town, quaint, nice and virtually undiscovered by most. More recently things have begun to change. Saint Augustine is in the news and beginning to get noticed! The US World and News Report rated Saint Augustine as one of the top 10 p...

At a native plant seminar I found out about a special place in one of our local subdivisions. This neighborhood, Saint Augustine Shores, is only about a mile from my office. They have a large meadow where mostly senior citizens, not even residents of the Shores, come to volunteer and grow native ...

Recently, I went to show a very expensive home. 2.6 million was the asking price. The seller had everything absolutely perfect but the air was full of dragonflies which I felt was very distracting. The outside of this home was exceptional, with Intracoastal frontage, beautiful gardens, outdoor fi...

This sensational Waterfront home is fantastic enough on its own but now the Sellers are going to throw in all of their beautiful Pottery Barn style, like new furnishings, 2 scooters and a Jeep Wrangler! All are in mint condition and the vehicles have low miles, ready for you to enjoy some fun in ...
It has been a sensational week! My oldest son and his darling girlfriend have passed their Real Estate exams and are going to join my Team!

When I was growing up we always had curtains. Lots of loud prints with dark colors, and it was all very stylish. Later, when I had my own home, the thought of curtains seemed old fashioned and I wanted wood blinds. The next home sported Plantation Shutters, still the rage in many places. After al...
