The new listing at 2819 Fogarty Avenue in the midtown area of Key West is a finely tuned renovation of a mid-century modern home brought forward to the 21st Century. I got to see this home last week during Realtor Caravan. Everybody, and I mean everybody, was remarking on how good this home looke...
While many first time buyers of a home in Key West seek a place in Old Town "close to Duval Street", others prefer the quiet Casa Marina Area known for the larger lots, tall swaying palms, and short walking distance to the beaches. The new listing at 1101 Von Phister Street enjoys all of the feat...
Buyers with big dreams and smaller budgets should take note of the recent price reduction of 912 Truman Avenue in Key West. That's not the house above, that's just a colorful logo to catch your attention.My experiences teach me that potential buyers have visions of the type of house they want to ...
I have written about this historic Old Town home a few times over the ten years not because it was for sale but to share with my experience in selling this particular house because it was the first house I  sold. 514 Elizabeth Street has been owned by the same people these many years. As I recall...

I also love the post cards and old photos that show what Key West looked like decades ago - before it was "discovered" by the hippies,  gays, and literati who made ...

I got to preview the new listing at 3412 Eagle Avenue, Key West a couple of days ago. I showed the house a few years ago in a driving rain storm. I hate to show any home when the skies are gray, but showing a house in the rain is horrible. Buyers have to run from the car and into the house. They ...
Brenda Donnelly, the listing Realtor of 1214 Olivia Street in Key West, invited me over to see this impressive listing. She walked me through each room of the house and adjacent guest cottage. She pointed out features of the original house which was expanded in 2002 by the current owner.. The ren...
I always preference my little tales of Key West by telling my Dear Readers that the stories are true as opposed to stuff that comes out of Washington and reality television. You can't make up the truth, and, sometimes, the truth hurts. A few years ago on the week before Christmas, I was setting u...
