I have watched sellers chase the market down as prices slipped faster than they could understand. Professional Realtors are watching the market EVERY day. We are showing homes for sale EVERY day. Do you have the time and expertise to follow the real estate market every day? Are you willing to spend the money to properly market your home? To do it right, you will end up spending more than a professional Realtor will charge you (3 comments)

Pensacola School Liaison Officers for Military Families After more than 20 years "married to the military," I know a thing or two about military moves.

So I am really pleased to share some information about the School Liaison Officer Program.

The program has only been around for a couple of years, but there (0 comments)

Pensacola Beach Condos Under $200,000 Finding a condo on Pensacola Beach for under $200,000 has not - at least for the 10 years that I have been selling condos on Pensacola Beach - been an easy thing to do.

Pensacola Beach Condos Under $200,000 - Today there are 13 Pensacola Beach condos actively listed on the Pensacola MLS that are priced at under $2000. They range in price from $119,500 for a two bedroom-one bath 914 square foot (3 comments)
Portofino Condos Pensacola Beach FL - 08/05/11 02:14 PM
Portofino Condos Pensacola Beach FL Sales for Portofino condos have been pretty brisk the first seven months of the year. Forty Portofino Resort and Spa condos priced between $280,000 and $600,000 changed hands between Jan. 1, 2011, and July 31, 2011. What's so special about Portofino? Well for one thing this project, made up of five Italian Mediterranean inspired towers, is one of the largest and most well-appointed condominiums on Pensacola Beach. Another strong selling point for Portofino is simply it's amazing location on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. From the balcony of any Portofino condominium you (1 comments)

Looking to Sell Your Pensacola Home in this Challenging Real Estate Market? It's far from impossible. Homes are selling everyday. I acutally just represented a buyer in a multipe offer situation.
