New Tax laws you didn’t know about? Well odds are there are probably many.  But I just heard one that has me shaking my head.In cities and states across the country some new laws have been enacted.  Did you know that in Seattle Washington effective 1 Jan 18 they have enacted a “sweetened beverage” tax?   Shoppers will now have to pay $1.75 per ounce on ALL sugar sweetened beverages.   To put it in perspective:  if you buy in bulk like Costco for example you will have to pay $10 in tax on a $16 case of Gatorade.   The point is to force consumers to go for healthier choices. In florida: It is illegal to sell your children Women may be fined for falling aslee under a hair dryer, as can the salon owner.    (well they better not look through my house window) Oral sex is illegal A special law...

Living in the resort town of Destin, Fl provides a lot of options when dining out.  Sunday is my favorite day to take some time to be with friends and family because realistically it is the only day I can truly take off from my Real Estate business.  I have my favorite hangouts that I have written about in previous blogs but I also like trying out the new places for a variety of reasons but basically for the variety of dining experiences.  My newest find and one in which I will return is The Henderson Beach Resort and Spa.  I went there yesterday to give it a shot and was very pleasantly pleased.  It is one of the newest Resorts here in Destin and hence has not been swamped by visitors.  It has valet parking which is free when you dine there and that is a pleasant change instead of havi...

Did you book your summer vacation and get frustrated with the new high fees going to company you booked through? I used to advertise vacation rentals on the number one site for vacation rentals but quit doing so when they not only charged me to advertise my vacation rental but also started charging you the consumer to book your vacation. I don't know hom many clients complained to me about these companies but were so happy to find me without them.Now their's is an alternative site you can use free of charge to book your next vacation. Did I say free? Yes free. I am advertising my vacation homes on there but wanted to share this company with you to get the word out so hopefully these expensive sites will go away. This vacation rental site can be found at Home Escape.Here is a link to one...

The other day I was showing homes in the Destin Florida area and had to schedule seven houses to show a couple.  This is an exercise in geography and timing. You see, you cannot just jump in the car and show up at people’s houses, knock on the door and expect them to let you in. Also, in my association – the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors, you must even call to schedule appointments for houses that are vacant.  So to plan my showing timeline, I started with Google Route Planner (there is also Mapquest Route Planner) to show me which homes were most closely located.  I added my client’s current home, as I would be picking them up from there. From the map results, I picked the best order to show the homes.  I then had to guesstimate how long we would spend at each house and call th...

We just lunched at the brand-new swanky Italian restaurant, “Pazzo Italian”, in Destin Florida. “Pazzo Italiano” means “crazy Italian”. It wasn’t crazy at all, – but it was posh and elegant!  The first thing that struck me was the sleek decor, suspended lighting and touches like the contemporary metal map of Italy on the wall.Our waiter, Art, was very professional and attentive.  He explained that one of the owners, Alfonso di Bonito, was from Naples, Italy, and emphasized that that was the home of the original pizza (which it is!). The other owner, Levente Tischler, is from Romania, and the two created the restaurant of their dreams (dei loro sogni), according to the website for Pazzo Italiano. My lunch date ordered the white pizza porchetta for $16.00, which had artichokes and smoked ...

My life has changed. I have a new obsession, a new pet, a new OCD. It’s the iRobot Roomba 980.  I’ve named it “Shuttlecraft” (Star Trek fan). How did this come about and what does it mean? A few weeks ago a friend and I were chatting at my house and I apologized that it was a mess with cat hair everywhere. I have three cats. It was neat, but there was cat dander and dust on everything!  My friend immediately grabbed his phone and told me he had a solution for that. He brought up an App and said, “Roomba 980”!  He raved that it cleaned his house, mapped where it has been and he can program it on his phone.  Having two dogs and three kids, he said you can now walk around barefoot with no worries in his house!  Pricey? Yes. But I had to have one.  I got the iRobot Roomba 980 at Bed Bath & ...

What do you do after you pull your hamstring working out at Gold’s Gym in Destin, Florida? You work from home accompanied by your kitties. Here is a picture of Micah and you can sort of see Nikolai in front of him. They were my constant companions, along with Athena (not pictured), while I was propped up on the couch with an ice pack, typing emails to clients thinking of buying and selling real estate! To help me out while Hubby was out of town, Mary Davis from Mary's Critter Sitters stopped by a few times. By the way, I highly recommend the local physical therapy office of Orthopedic & Sport Physical Therapy Center with offices in Destin, Santa Rosa Beach, Niceville and Crestview!  They are fixing me up in no time!It’s Wendy… It’s Sold!Free Instant Home ValueWendy Rulnick, Broker, Ruln...
