Winter Park, FL Real Estate News

This is just a quick post to invite you to check out my New Winter Park Real Estate Market Conditions blog on New Homes Directory. The kind folks at New Homes Directory asked me to write a blog at least once a month about the market in our fair city just North of Orlando, and dedicated a page on their site. I received an invite to a Winter Park AR meetup tomorrow, and it made me think this might not be a bad place to mention my new blog. I would love to hear ideas about other aspects of Winter Park that you might like to hear about, so check it out and share your thoughts. http://www.newhomesdirectory.com/Florida/Winter_Park/Real-Estate-Market/ Thanks for your help. David

Localism Challenge, Day #28:  Big Frog® Custom T-Shirts & More Our company had a team-building event yesterday.  We left work in the middle of the day (shut the place down from 11-2)- and spent time at a place called Olde Towne in the nearby Kissimmee area. A big part of out exercise involved team T-Shirts with funky names on them- and that's where Big Frog® Custom T-Shirts & More came into the equation.  We needed shirts with our company logo on the front- and names like "ANITA NEWMAN" and "WHOSGOT PROBLEMS".  We needed shirts and needed them done quickly- as we have some new folks that have joined the company in the past few days.  Not good to have "team building" events if all of the team members don't have their T-Shirts!  No fear, though- as we enlisted the help of Big Frog® Custom...

Localism Challenge, Day #25:  Winter Park Farmer's Market, Winter Park Honey Localism Challenge, Day #25:  Winter Park Farmer's Market, Winter Park Honey What to use for my Localism Challenge post today?  Hmmm... it's my birthday- so I'm going with 2 things:  one being places I feel are very important to America, the other being a product offered by one. I'll begin with the family farm, because the family farm is important.  I remember going to the local stores when I was younger- and buying produce from families nearby- no big fancy set-ups like today.  If she hadn't grown her own a particular year, my granny would buy radishes from a guy that sold his outside the hardware store. If we didn't green beans or "snap peas", tomatoes or okra- we knew where to find it- and it came from folks...

Localism Challenge, Day #18:  Women of Worth The following is some information about an upcoming conference at my church here in the Orlando area (Aloma is actually in Winter Park).  It's an event I won't be attending, though- for the W.O.W. (Women of Worth) Conference is for the ladies. Folks may read this post and say "Dang.  He seems kind of 'churchy'"- and that's fine.  Today's Sunday, and I didn't leave church that long ago- so it's cool to still be "churchy".  And if some don't like that...too bad. Folks may read this post and say "Dang.  He's not a woman- why's he posting about a women's conference?"  That's fine, too- because I think women are important.  Everyone has a mother, and women are typically the glue holding families together.  It's important for women to have good Chr...

  Homes in Winter Park, Florida 32789 or 32792 ?    My daughter starts off her weekend, with fresh baked croissants at an authentic French Bakery at Winter Park's famous Park Avenue.  Do you know where that is?   Many home buyers do not know the difference between Winter Park, FL 32789 and Winter Park FL 32792 and think that there is only one Winter Park, Florida...but actually, there are two and here is a comparison: ZIP CODE 32789:  City of Winter Park Florida 32789 is in Orange County Florida.  It has 7.28 square miles with a population of about 25,000.   Well known for it brick paved streets, and mature oak trees, Winter Park is a sought after community.  This zip code is home to the famous Park Avenue which models a European town with boutique shops, restaurants, and train station....
