Save the Hogs in Plantation Acres Florida As a Resident of Plantation Acres, there are many things I like about living here.  Having more Land and fewer neighbors is one and the other is all the Animals that call "Plantation Acres" their Home as well.  This is a Horse Community and you will also find many homes with a variety of other animals such as Donkeys, Peacocks, Ostriches, Roosters and Chickens.   I take the kids out in the Golf Cart and we drive around the neighborhood as you never know what you will see. Well apparently, somewhere along the way, no one knows for sure but someone must have had some "Hogs" and now there is a whole bunch of them living in the Undeveloped Wooded Areas and some of the residences want them removed Dead or Alive.  My plea is to relocate them and not h...

I know what you're thinking....and you're right!!! I'd like to say tat every dog has it's day. Today my wife and daughter convinced me to go stop by and visit an animal rescue center nearby. Two days ago we were over at the animal shelter and left without anything other than a receipt for all the dog food we donated. Well today I have to say that we are now the proud owners of a new addition to the family. Please meet Roxy....she's about 6-7 months old according to her foster parents. She's very friendly and gentle and loves my daughter. Maybe now she'll take some responsibility and let me rest! I just went through 17yrs of wonderful love but it was tough on me because of the commitment. It seems that this girl doesn't warm up to men as easy as women but I think we'll become closer as t...

  Majority of our business is dealing with "Short Sales and Foreclosures". Most people who are behind in their mortgage payments fully realize the lenders will finalize a sales price. There seems to be some confusion when it comes to accepting an offer. Some sellers feel that when they receive an offer they should counter. They feel the back will frown upon a "low ball"offer so it`s wise to "Think for the Bank"... Don`t! Take the offer and let the bank decide for themselves if they`ll accept it. It` not feasible for you to negotiate for the lenders nor should you act as a liaison for them. Last week, we showed a home to our buyer located in Plantation. The buyer decided to make an offer based on the Comps in the area. The home was listed for $329,000. We offered $265,000. Our buyer can ...

Experts are talking recession and families are wondering how to protect their financial security.  With the foreclosure epidemic, unemployment at an all time high, and Congress scrambling to bail out the financial industry, many consumers are experiencing severe stress as it relates to their economic stability and general well being.  Although gasoline prices have fallen into the low $2.30 range, the economy is struggling with food prices and professional services that have increased at alarming rates.  As a result, many families have scaled back on their spending to include only the necessities.In an ever worsening economy your good name and reputation within the community is becoming more important.  Creditors have tightened their guidelines effectively barring millions of Americans f...

  After all, they’re buying estate houses for sale because they want to live like a rock star.      When builders choose amenities in communities like Hawk’s Landing Plantation FL, how important are the quality of the materials?   It seemed in 2004, buyers were not only paying above appraised values (seems like so long ago) but they also were willing to purchase sight unseen and with other unimaginable conditions of sale waived.  Fast forward to 2008, and a home might be marketed to include FREE flat screen TVs or even gas cards.   But regardless of the condition of the real estate market, here in Ft Lauderdale FL US, builders and developers rarely take for granted what life in Luxury South Florida is all about---RECREATION.  In a neighborhood with multi million dollar estates, the club...

Whenever two or more people come together with a shared purpose, they form a culture with its own written and unwritten rules for behavior. Our families, workplaces and communities all have cultures. These cultures have a tremendous, though rarely recognized, impact upon our behavior as individuals. Each cultural environment provides a unique set of standards to which we must adapt. Our behavioral patterns change dramatically from cultural context to cultural context. For example, on the job we are expected to behave in accordance with certain social standards. Expectations about behaviors at work usually differ from what is expected of us in our kitchens and in our bedrooms. We may choose not to behave in accordance with our cultures, but if we choose not to go along, we must be prepar...

I just finished reading the morning papers and had my two cups of coffee for the day. I begin my day responding to emails. It`s easy to get a "Jump on the Day" by working early in the morning. This morning I received the funniest of emails offering me a chance to assist someone who is affiliated with the Sudanese Petroleum Commission. Nice name, I`m positive they`re an S-Corp working out of a Tiki Hut! I often wonder the motivation behind these stupid Scams. How in the world, could anyone in their right mind be fooled by these letters offering millions of dollars providing you give them "You`re Bank Account".... This brazen scamer is willing to "Give Me" $5.6 million in cash no less....   I can picture these guys sitting on a milk crates sending email after email to unsuspecting souls.I...
