The Day After? The Day After the election and I ask myself, "Can I make a difference?" There is much chatter still going on about the election. We are divided and I believe that would be the case no matter the outcome. I have a choice here; I can join in the discussions and argue with my opposing...
This will be a short post but important. I am, as many others tonight, watching the results from the election and Mitt Romney has been in the lead in the numbers reflecting the popular vote yet the election can come down to the "key states".  Look at the numbers, please. It is time to make a chan...
This home has unique features. Built in 1958, only one family owned it so it was maintained and not 'renovated' in the 70's when a lot of shortcuts were taken. The wall and ceiling are Florida cypress and the floors are the high end terrazo marble.  I looked at CMA's from three realtors, studied...
  I am greeted with surprise when I tell of my experience in selling my father-in-laws home in Pinecrest, FL - listed, sold and under contract with a back up buyer in 12 days. It shouldn't really be a surprise since I did my homework before listing the home. I am Principal Broker of Catherine Co...
It's the end of the car show season and one of the last shows in the area happens on the rain date for the show (Hurricane Sandy changed a lot of plans).

I am frustrated being without power but more importantly, I am scared of the cold and what it will do to our property if the pipes freeze. That b...
In the aftermath.... Hurricane Sandy left major problems in New York City and the surrounding communities. Although we have power, WiFi started acting up yesterday. Thankfully, my iPad has 3G and I am connected on a screen larger than my iPhone.  What is all this doing to real estate? I am concer...
This Miami property in the beautiful section of Pinecrest was built in 1958. First time to the market since the family purchased it in 1960. Only one owner, it sits on .41 acres and is a spacious 2,793 square feet of living space. Add in the covered and screened in back porch and you are well ove...
Cottage or Castle, What's Your Dream! -I know it is grammatically incorrect to end a question with an exclamation point. The reason I did this; I believe home ownership is the American Dream. For some it may be a simple cottage, others need a mansion to fit the bill. Whatever it is, dreams are ex...
Each calendar month carries a distinct meaning. September has a few;  Back to school. Labor Day Weekend, the last three day weekend of the summer and a signal that the laid back days of summer vacation are over; time to get serious about work again. Days begin to get shorter, nights are cooler an...
