 I just completed a six week class at the Board of Realtors on Excel. It was very informative and the instructor was great. I was a little overwhelmed at first because of my challenged computer skills, but I quickly caught on. The reason I initially signed up for the class is that we started a vi...

I have been in sales for all of my adult life. The funny thing about sales is, the more things change... the more things stay the same. For example, my main goal is to differentiate myself from other web design and virtual tour companies. I feel like we do a pretty good job of this. The real ques...

It was in 1859 that Alligator, Florida renamed itself Lake City.  Up I95 to 295 and west on Rt. 10, it's about a 100 miles and a fairly easy ride to the closest city to Ichetucknee Springs State Park, our real destination. We headed out this morning, February 23, 2008, just to explore the area an...

Just because the springs dried up doesn't mean there isn't anything to do in White Springs, Florida.  Hmm?  I wonder why they left off the word "sulphur" when they named the town?  Either I75 or I10 will take you almost to the front gate of this sleepy town of about a thousand people.  Reminiscen...

Due west of Gainesville, and about an hour and a half drive from Saint Augustine is Dudley Farm Historic State Park, (DudleyFarmHistoricStatePark) a working 19th century farm now owned by the Florida Park Service.  What drew us to this day trip was the website definition of "working."  There were...

Stephen Foster never set foot in Florida but he wrote our official state Song:  Old Folks At Home (Swannee River).  There's an interesting story about how he dropped a syllable to make the cadence of the song more viable, but this is not my story. A bit over 100 miles from St. Augustine, The Spir...

Moving from Washington, D.C. to Saint Augustine, Florida changed my life in a variety of ways; ninety-nine percent of them good.  But do I miss walking to the Metro from my Arlington apartment and the next rental car I'm in is in Europe?  You bet I do.  Jacksonville's airport is efficient, clean,...

Many visitors to the First Coast are surprised to learn how many theatrical venues there are.  For instance, my husband and I saw David Copperfield at the Moran in the Times Union Center last night.  Not only is this a comfortable, well-situated theatre with great acoustics, it's easy to access f...

There is nothing like it on earth.  It is bitterly cold, it has just snowed a foot and now the sky is so clear you can see far beyond the boundaries of our Milky Way Galaxy, or at least you believe you can.  But most of all, and what makes this moment so unforgettable, is that you can't hear a th...

By definition, acclimations require time.  It's been three years going on four that I've endured the heat of Florida, and I dare say, or should I dare say, that I'm finally getting used to it. Getting the Christmas spirit in 80-degree temperatures (with a thunderstorm looming on the horizon) has ...

The buyers market on 2007 in Northeast Florida has made selling resale homes a huge challenge. Most buyers have previewed model homes and builder inventory homes that are in mint condition - neutral paint, brand new windows & doors, clean appliances, groomed landscaping.

Competition in the mortgage industry has resulted in a great opportunity for buyers who want a "fixer upper."  Private lenders have devised all sorts of unusual loans to put money into the hands of credit-worthy buyers.  Now FHA is getting in on the action by offering a new "limited repair" loan,...

When you're ready to sell your home, your agent will inform you how to successfully price, present and market your property; but some "family members" may be left out of the loop, completely unaware of the process and feeling the attendant anxiety.  No, it's not your kids, but your pets.Unfortuna...

If you have ever driven north of St. Augustine and Vilano Beach  along the Coastal Highway A1A you have probably seen and wondered about the medieval Castle that is seen from just off of the road.  What in the world is a medieval castle doing by the ocean in Florida?  What is its history???Castle...

You might assume that the fewer credit cards you have, the higher your credit score could be.  Because of that assumption, some buyers preparing to apply for a home loan mistakenly cancel one or more credit cards.  Why would this be a bad idea?It has to do with the ratio of your debt to your avai...
