I was reading the paper yesterday when I cam across an article about a State Officials are asking that the State of Florida be divided into two States- North Florida and South Florida. The dividing line would be at the start of Palm Beach County. When most of us speak about Florida we already divide ourselves as from South Florida if we are from Fort Lauderdale, Miami- Dade or Palm Beach, and North Florida anywhere north of Palm Beach. Apparently the spending habits between the two are quite different and Officials feel that by dividing the state would be beneficial to the citzens. It seems we are not the only State looking into this, Wisconsin and Hiawaii are in the talks as well.   Would this change how we see Florida? Will it change how spending is done by our government? Would this...

Mother's Day Tea Party So today was the Mother's Day Tea Party and as you all knew, when she started to sing she made me cry. When all the moms got there we had to wait in line and each one of us was given a pin that they made and walked over to our seat. We sat down and waited to everyone was in. Then the teacher went on to explain how much work our children put into todays Tea Party. They cleaned the room and prepared the tables with mats they made with flowers. Each table had a box of tissues on them. I laughed and asked what is this for? My daughter replied, " For Happy Tears". They walked to the circle and started to sing. I made it half way through and started to cry. I was holding the camera and trying not to drop it. She did just beautiful. She made sure that she pointed to me ...

Mother's Day Tea Party with my Daughter. I have been invited by my daughter and her school for a Mother's Day Tea party tommorrow at 10 am. She has been talking about this party for days now.

This past friday was early registration for Kindergarden. So my daughter and I went to go register. We got there early and she watched how all the kids were getting to school. They were coming by bus, walking, bikes and parents dropping off. She was amazed and excited. All I could think was I can't believe my daughter is starting school. Fear and excitment all at the same time, who would have thought!So while we were on line I noticed many parents being turned away. It turned out that many of the kids were missing a second Varicella Shot. Including my daughter. So luckily her doctor's office was in the building next door and were able to go and get her shot and come right back to register before it was over. She was not happy with. But she got her pride shirt and made up for it.Looking ...

So this weekend I spent the day at home doing some spring cleaning. First was the garage then it was the garden. Now I don't have a green thumb so I try to stay away from flowers or any pretty plants. But my fathter in law insisted I get something to bring it some color. We went to home depot together and went looking. I don't know the difference between Perinals vs. Annuals. He went to explain Perinals bloom all year round, where annuals are sesonal. Here are some of the flowers we went with.                     I plan on putting in  some more, but for now we will stay with this. If anyone has any other suggestions that are low maintance. Please feel free to leave them in the comment section with a picture of what the flower looks like! I would love to plant them. Once my flowers star...

I met with a buyer last night at a listing. We had talked on the phone several times, but it was our first meeting. The home was lovely, but not what he was looking for. I got to talking with him trying to learn more of what he wanted now that I had a rough idea from the home we just looked at. he sold his home last month and is renting back till June when his daughter finishes school. He sold in Plantation, Fl and now is looking in t. I asked Why not use the agent who sold your home since you are staying in the area? You know what he told me, because my agent told me up front, I only work with sellers!!! Never buyers. OK i know we have listing agents and buyers agents. A few years ago this was fine, business was so busy that you needed agents who worked that way. But NOW, its not like...

Want to sell your home as a Short Sale in Coral Springs and the surrounding Broward County?First and foremost, stay away from those who promise to sell your home for you as a Short Sale for a fee. RUN!!!Some Service companies, Attorneys and/or Agents are seeking out the distressed homeowner facing foreclosure, knowing they're distraught and that they might do just about anything to save their home from foreclosure. Yes, these homeowners quite often think that if they scrape up enough money to pay for their services up front that it must really work; well, there is no guarantee that negotiating a short sale can work for any price. The only way to be guaranteed relief from your foreclosure is to have a buyer for your home, have your lender accept the buyer's offer and your home gets sold ...

Are you looking for a program to teach your child how to swim? Florida is the number one state for drownings. There are four parks that are offering swimming lessons. I will be the first to say that none of my kids no how to swim and will be taking some lessons this summer. I hope that you will do the same! Here is the information! Four Broward County parks are offering swimming lessons during the summer, geared for children as young as two years of age, through adult. The “Learn to Swim” programs will meet for a total of eight lessons, Mondays through Thursdays. Classes are 30 minutes long (rained-out classes will be on Fridays). Six different courses are offered. Schedules and courses vary, depending on the park. The first of four sessions start on June 9. Pre-registration is encoura...

I am currently working with two buyers right now. Both called me with the intentions of only looking and buying forclosures. They were both under the assumption that it was the only way they could purchase a property in the price range they were looking in. You see one is in the price range on 150k to 160k looking in Hollywood, Fl, and the other is under 250k in Tamarac and Coral Springs, Fl.   Now don't get me wrong there are a good amount of  deals with foreclosures. But I believe there are more motivated sellers out there with great deals. Some are giving seller's concessions, for those of you who don't know what that is, it means sellers are willing to help with either your down payment or with closing cost! The foreslosed properties won't or can't give you that kind of  option. On...

. . . starts by having a Real Estate Agent list your home who's in the know when it comes to short sales. You'll hear time and time again from others how short sales are full of problems and take forever. Well if you want to ease your pain and lessen the time frame, make sure your Real Estate Agent knows the process.I had a call today from an Agent who wanted to show one of my short sale listings. She asked me if anything has been submitted to the bank yet and I responded "...No, as I haven't had any offers yet..." And she abruptly told me that I could have submitted to the bank because she has before and she said, "...oh, I just need showing instructions..." However, I took her back to her statement and asked her on it - I said to her,"...so you've submitted what to the bank and they'v...

My family and I visited City Place in West Palm Beach, Fl for the first time. I've have been living in Florida for 20 years, not sure how long City Place has been around for, but I'm glad I visited. Here are some photos of City Place. If you plan on coming down to visit family or are vacationing down here, take some time out to visit City Place. We had a blast.                        The horse and carriage ride also sounded like fun. For $40 dollars you get a 20 minute ride through City Place. We were on our way out. The nest time we head out for City Place, I plan on taking the kids for a ride. They at least got to pet the horse named Kelly. Here is a photo of that!            There is plenty shopping to do, many resturants to eat at. There is a live band that plays in the center of Ci...

As the fourth largest metropolitan area in Broward County and 11th largest in the state, the city of Coral Springs has an area of 23.5 square miles, and contains around 21,000 or more single-family residences that have a median income capita per family over $50,000. This high-income base among families here has been helpful in boosting the city’s tax base to over $4.7 billion. This area was incorporated as a city in 1963, and initially had three residents who were basically workers of the Coral Ridge Properties. By 1980, the city completely detached itself from CRP and became a full-pledged community, with a self-reliant and efficient government system, and within that time its s population already reached an estimated 34,000 residents. Today, the city has around well over 124,000, most...
