Pets as Comfort This has been a long year for everyone.  Being at home more than ever, it just seems natural that your pets would be a source of comfort to you.   Most pets adore their humans.  Pets are there for your every mood.  When you're down, your cats and dogs are there and provide comfort.  When you come in after a day of work, your dog will run to greet you at the door.  Where else do you get that kind of greeting?  I didn't think so!   If you're sick, most dogs will stay with you.  They'll hop on the bed or sofa and watch tv with you.  Dogs get you out of the house.  People need to get out of the house and some may need help in doing so.  Walking a dog may be the only social interaction they have.  You get social interaction with other dog people you meet on your walk.  Social...

Love at First Bark It was almost 15 years ago when I flew to Texas to pick her up.  Nicknamed "the pistol," by her breeder, she was the runt of the litter  Just four ounces at birth.  My friend nursed her every two hours like a baby, and thankfully she survived.   This little runt was just four pounds at eight months old.  My friend told me she was too small to show and too small to breed, so I should come and pick her up.  Which I did.  It had to be done in one day as I had another dog in kidney failure on fluids. I arrived after two plane rides and an hour-and-a-half car ride.  She jumped in my lap, though I had no idea which dog she was.  They all looked alike! She has lived up to her name, Chispa.  Chispa means sparkle.  She truly is a sparkle.  Although we changed her name to Graci...

Tips to Be a Good Pet NeighborPets are great but it's important to be a good pet neighbor.  Common courtesy and being a good pet parent can go a long way to making happy neighbors.  Here are some tips to being a good pet neighbor. TrainingAre your dogs trained? I have seen some very untrained dogs being walked by people who think it's cute when they misbehave.  They don't try to correct them.  Or, they will say, s/he always does that.    Any dog can have bad behavior, but it's our job as a responsible pet parent to try and correct the behavior.  It takes time and effort, but will be worth it in the end. VaccinationsNot everyone believes in vaccinating their pets, but in Florida a rabies vaccination is required.  This is a personal one to me, as I was bitten by a neighbor's dog a few yea...

2020 has been very different than any other year in our lives, for almost everyone (unless you're 101 or older!)  It's been a year of learning to adapt to change and, more than ever, a year of gratitude.  At least in my opinion. We have all had a wake-up call.  Life is short.  Life is fragile.  Appreciate what you have and have gratitude for every day, every new sunrise, for it is a gift denied to many.  Appreciate your health.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  We all have a few aches and pains.  I have been home since the end of March, except for work.  I have not gone out to eat in almost seven months (not so terrible, I can stand to lose the weight!)  Life as we knew it has probably changed forever. I've learned about masks.  Boy, have I learned about masks.  No matter if we feel like w...

5 Star Review Elyse Berman | Boca Raton FL  Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness We were so fortunate to have found Elyse Berman when we were looking for a realtor in Palm Beach County. As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. She was patient as we mostly communicated over the phone and that included many weekends and after-hours calls. Elyse goes beyond when it comes to helping families find their perfect home.She has so much knowledge of the area that if you say the address and some reference point she would have a very close guess of what type of house you are referring to. She knows pretty much all the communities in Boca Raton and its surroundings.Thank you so much for all your help, Elyse.Thank you John & Mary!...

Sold Virtually | Pet-Friendly Pool Home in Boca Raton    This remodeled home in Boca Raton just closed.  The new owners are a beautiful young couple, and the home was sold virtually.   Welcome to 2020, the year of virtual everything, including buying homes!    It was just a funny story   I had to share.     I digress.  This couple was referred to me looking to move back to warmer weather.    I had their wish list.  Non-negotiable was:  It had to be in Boca Raton.  It had to have a pool for the wife and a garage for the husband.    You would think this would be easy as many homes in Boca have pools and many also have garages.  But many is not a word when it comes to inventory today.  Inventory is very, very low.  Together we were on a mission.  We worked hard and we worked fast.  Submitt...

Dog Friendly Gated Community Boca Raton | Newport Bay Club Hi there.  We're Fiona and Toby and we're from New York.  Our mom and dad decided they would like to spend some time in Boca Raton, so naturally we come along.  You didn't think they were going without us, did you? At first, mom and dad were thinking about a pet-friendly condo in Boca Raton.  They googled and found a pet-friendly REALTOR®.    They all got along well, so we started to look into condos at the beach.  The thing is, the buildings had a lot of rules about where we could walk and more.  We weren't too keen on going out through the garage or being carried, and we wanted open space to run.  Oh, what to do!  The lady REALTOR® who loves dogs suggested a house in a pet-friendly gated community in Boca Raton.  That way, she...

Can I Say I Knew You When? was the question I posed to Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland this morning.  Naturally, she asked me why. I told her when I logged onto crs.com this morning and went to trsmag.com (The Residential Specialist Magazine), the page opened and there she was.  Was I ever surprised!  I had to look twice to make sure.  But, yep, there was Margaret! Of course, then I called her and asked:  Can I say I knew you when?   Margaret did not know the article was going to be featured this month, but there it was - All Roads Lead to Rome.  And there is only one Rome I know who is worthy of this feature.  I hope this link works without having to log in because it's a great article.   So congratulations Margaret on a job well done!  As always!
