taken over the previous week.

Pelican & Cabin Cruiser
Spending time on the boat is such fun. John's favorite thing to do is go out a
few miles and float in the Gulf of Mexico. We often take lunch and I catch up on
reading and listen to my I-pod or write. If it is windy and wavy, we usually anchor off
the south end of Lido Key, where is it almost always very calm. This area is a
natural park and the beach has deep water (great for boats) almost right up to
the beach. When the gulf is warm, we drop the back anchor too and walk on the
beach or snorkel or just float along near the boat. Manatees regularly go
through this area and we have been close enough to touch them.
New Sarasota Listing
(Orb on garage door)
We love to help people sell their homes, but in this market it is difficult. I
feel badly when their house does not sell quickly. There are many short sales
and foreclosures. We have several pending foreclosures and short sales for
clients. Buyers are getting such great prices for homes that are in like-new
condition. This one is pending now, for a little over half of what the owner
owed on it.
Emma & Elliott
They are such fun! They watched TV until dinner. John made chili and after dinner, while the guys watched the
football game and Leigh and I planned our schedule. Emma, Elliott and I worked
puzzles and set up domino rows for Elliott to knock down. It is fun to play
games with them. They discovered the "secret place" by the creek and had great
fun climbing and exploring.
New Sign for Diana, one of our Palm Beach agents
We are trying to decide if we like this roof or our old design better.
Our Fly in Neighborhood Listing Palm Beach
Diane organized a brokers' tour and we visited homes in Aero Club. The lots are
an acre and the residents here have their hangar right on their property, often
attached to their home. The homes back up to the landing strips. Diane contacted
the agents with listings in Aero Club and the ones that wanted to
participate are doing all they can to get the listings sold. We filled out
comment / suggestion sheets for each house. Just one idea or little thing that
should be changed or fixed can make a sale happen. If some owners only knew what
some agents do to work so hard to get their home sold. Also, if some owners only
knew what their listing agent does not do that they should be doing...
The Mennonites live in the area around Beneva and Bahia Vista. The married men
have beards, so it is easy to tell the married men from the single men. Many
Mennonites ride bicycles. I have not seen horse-drawn buggies such as in
Nappanee IN. Thank goodness, that would be extremely dangerous
with our busy streets. They
use electricity and some drive. Some stay year-round in Sarasota and some come down only for
Mermaid Fountain in Sarasota
I know; a lot of
pictures of this fountain but I found it so interesting. This is something that
I love about Sarasota; there is always something to discover and always
something fun to do! One of my goals for the new year is to find/visit/see/learn
something new every week about Sarasota.
