I showed 1231 Flager Avenue in Key West a few days ago. As soon as I walked inside this 1,524 Sq Ft 1950s ranch style home I was taken by the gleaming restored terrazzo floors which put to shame so many of the new flooring we see today. These floors are both durable and stylish. The entire houses...
  This is a true story. It is not about body shaming. It just happened. That's all. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my move to Key West and the opening of Eaton Lodge guest house. I publish this blog on two sites and a couple of readers asked for more tales of events that happened there - kin...
Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West - 617 Frances Street. I had the opportunity to see this house just before it was listed and want to share some photos and thoughts with my readers - especially those looking for a fixer-upper.  I love how much the houses of Old Town have changed so lit...
  I am hosting another Open House on Sunday February 23rd at 912 Fleming Street between 12 to 2  PM.  Stop by and check out this 3,228 square foot Grand Conch House. You will likely find me sitting at the kitchen table working on a crossword puzzle. I'll stay seated as you work your way toward th...
The lovely home at 3529 Sunrise Drive in Key West was built in 1963 and incorporates many of the styles and trends of that era. I pulled out the WayBack machine and recalled these events that occurred in 1963: the Beatles record their first album Please Please Me in a single session; Betty Frieda...
This blog is now twelve years old. I have taken (literally and figuratively) thousands of photos of Key West properties over the years. I have stored them on several websites including Photobucket which was clumsy to use so I migrated Flickr which is my primary host now. Yesterday I was searching...
I got to see the inside of 516 Elizabeth Street, Key West (above) for the very first time a couple of weeks ago during Realtor Caravan. It is located next door to 514 Elizabeth Street - the very first house I sold in Key West 23 years ago. 514 Elizabeth Street is supposed to be the second or thir...

 Just Listed 711 Southard Street, Key West. This house has become an iconic vision of the perfect Key West cottage as many locals and visiting guests pass it each year and eye the Charlie Brown gang hanging around the front porch. Yeah! It's that house. What a presence it has atop Solaris Hill ju...
Long time readers know that I moved from Colorado to Key West more than a quarter century ago to own and operate a guest house then known as Eaton Lodge. The place had been boarded up for two years after being foreclosed by the US Small Business Administration.  We moved in a few days before Chri...
