Real Estate Agent - Preferred Properties Key West
Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties Key West. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life. The information on this site is for discussion purposes only.

The normal practice in Key West is for the Listing Agent to show his/her property to the buyers and his/her agent. This is because many of our properties (especially in Old Town) are unique. One day several years ago my customers and I were looking at fairly expensive home that was being rented o...
 We have all seen things in the past few days that most of us probably never expected. Hurricane Harvey has forced thousands upon thousands of people from their homes with only the clothes on their backs. The storm is not over, and it will take weeks to even obtain a semblance of the physical dam...
Just Listed:  425 Frances Street Unit 2, Key West, Florida. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:" This 2 BD/2 BA condo blends modern tropical charm with the historic beauty of Old Town Key West. High ceilings and lots of natural light accentuate the living space. Choose to relax i...
 Last May I wrote a blog about directions not taken. An ex read it and thought it was about him. Exes think like that. It wasn't - mostly.  There are several places I go on the internet when I get up each morning including the Monroe County Sheriff website to see if I know anybody who got arreste...
The cute house located at 618 White Street was just listed for sale.  I previously listed this same home a few years ago and was excited to see the updated house which the current broker describes as:"Built in the late 1800's this charming conch home was fully renovated in 2006. Classic wood fram...
Just Listed, 1126 Stump Lane, Key West.  Buyers who want a cute getaway place in the Florida Keys will probably need to act quickly to grab this adorable Key West Cottage. The last time it was listed for sale it went under contract in a matter of days. Let's consider what once was and what now is...
Just Listed, but not by me, 206 - 4 Southard Street, Key West. The listing broker describes this extra large two bedroom Shipyard Condominium this way:"This updated Shipyard condo offers a fantastic investment potential with its Truman Annex special transient rental license. Perfectly located nea...
The asking price on 923 Southard Street in Old Town Key West just got a lot better. Originally offered at $1,024,900, the new price is 2.7% less at $997,000. The original cigar maker's style cottage was built circa 1889. I found an old photo that shows pretty much the original structure as it app...
That's not me in the pic.  I looked as cute, but nobody took a photo of me back in summer of 1962 when I spent many-a-day as a clown. I was fifteen years old and had a job at a furniture store in Denver where I made $1.00 an hour. Minimum wage was $1.15 back in 1962. I guess my employer thought t...
On March 4, 1968 I participated in a Peace March in Fort Collins, Colorado while attending college at Colorado State University. I wrote a diary back then and found the pages where I memorialized the events of that cold gray day.  About 1500 students gathered at the campus oval around 3:30 PM.  W...
