If you have been dreaming of buying a waterfront home in Key West as either a full time residence or maybe as a vacation home, the recently listed one bedroom waterfront condominium at Key West by the Sea may be the place you have been waiting for.

gary thomas realtor: 721 Chapman Lane, Key West - Something Special! - 11/10/16 11:08 PM

Yesterday, during Realtor caravan, I finally got a chance to see the recently listed home at 721 Chapman Lane in Key West. I had been there years earlier and sort of remembered it. It looks totally different now than it looked a few years ago.

This place was something special.
This house is one of several cigar maker style homes on this block. The Monroe County Property Appraiser … (2 comments)

gary thomas realtor: Key West Home Stretch Sales Report - 11/04/16 12:34 AM
Last week I had a lengthy conversation with a customer who bought and sold a couple of properties from me. We discussed the current state of the real estate market in Key West. I told her I think our market is both under priced and over-heated. I know that sounds inconsistent. I have studied this market since 1984 when I first visited the island of Key West when the Curry Mansion was listed for an astonishing one million dollars. Town folk thought the seller must be insane. I have been a realtor here since 1996. In late December I will be … (1 comments)

gary thomas realtor: The House of the Future is Not What was Envisioned - 11/01/16 12:08 AM

I grew up in a western suburb of Denver, Colorado in the years immediately following the end of World War II. My generation are known as baby boomers. We are now or soon will be retired - my how time flies.  Like so many children of my generation, I would watch Walt Disney's Disneyland on Sunday night. Walt Disney would introduce each show to let us know a bit about what we were about to see. Walt was like a kindly old uncle who shared programs featuring animals, kids, cartoons, and folk heroes.  A few years ago I wrote a blog … (1 comments)

I remember the time I had a few minutes to spare between showing appointments. I asked my buyer if he would like a cup of coffee. He said yes. So I drove over to Sandy's Cafe at the corner of White at Virginia Streets in Key West. I had been at Sandy's at about the same time the day before. The guy behind the counter who waited on me then was helping another customer. A new guy behind the counter asked me what I wanted.
I said "One small cafe con leche with two sugars and a decaf." He asked "Sugar?" and … (3 comments)
