Why You Should Invest in Jacksonville FL Real Estate Market ~ Video We don't want you to miss this video on why you should invest in Jacksonville real estate.

St. Augustine Isn't Just For Old Buildings - 10/30/11 11:28 PM
St. Augustine Isn't Just For Old Buildings St. Augustine has many facets, and we discovered yet another this past weekend while visiting our son for Parent's Weekend at Flagler College. We happened on a small bazaar tucked into one of the buildings on St. George Street. I noticed the soaps immediately as we strolled past. The scents and colors captivated me and I had to visit. The lady working there was so helpful, educating me on their products and giving me so many great samples. Right now I am enjoying the Pumpkin soap and Natural Beauty moisturizer and can't (3 comments)
They Don't Make Them Like This Anymore - 10/30/11 10:57 PM
They Don't Make Them Like This Anymore Last weekend, we had the pleasure of visiting Markland House at Flagler College for a Reception with the President at the beginning of Parent's Weekend. We had seen the exterior of Markland House over a year ago while looking for a location for another event, and ever since I had wanted to see the inside. What a feast for the eyes! They don't make them like this anymore. Look at the detail given to the moulding at the ceiling. It is simply a work of art. Imagine doing all this without benefit of (0 comments)

Simply the BEST Financial Calculator App! - 10/25/11 10:30 PM
Simply the BEST Financial Calculator App! The good thing about upgrading to IOS5 on my iPhone is the cool new features. The bad thing was that I lost some of my apps even though I backed them up, but the good thing is that I found an even better mortgage calculator than the one I had before and wanted to share it with my AR buds. It's called powerOne Financial Calculator by Infinity Softworks and it costs $4.99, and worth every cent. It was the Apple staff pick in July, 2010. After I created my first mortgage calculation, I emailed it (7 comments)
Kodak Email Printing, Where Have You Been All My Life? - 10/25/11 12:38 AM
Kodak Email Printing, Where Have You Been All My Life? Specifically last summer, the third week of July to be exact. Here's the scenario. 2011 has been an extremely busy real estate year for us and we really needed a vacation. We made our annual trek to visit family in Virginia and celebrate my mom's birthday. We were anticipating a relaxing week away from our desks and computers - our listings were under control, our buyers at bay, and all seemed calm on the Team Alters' front. Until Monday, that is. That's the day I received four new foreclosure listings. Foreclosure (2 comments)

Do I need Flood Insurance on my Jacksonville Florida home? - 10/11/11 11:29 PM
Do I need Flood Insurance on my Jacksonville Florida home? Buyers, especially those moving to Florida from out of state, are not sure if they need to buy flood insurance. Even if a home is on the water, if it is in Flood Zone 'X', you do not have to buy flood insurance. Homeowner's insurance does not cover rising water damage if there is no flood insurance policy. Buyers think that buying flood insurance would be expensive, but owners in Flood Zone 'X' may only pay $300-400 a year for their flood policy. If you want to be (2 comments)
Here is a photo shot around Christmas time a few years ago. I like it because it captures our shores in the winter. A piece of Spanish moss, sandy beach, boat house and sun setting. It's really beautiful here on Fleming Island and Doctor's Lake is a big part of what makes it so great to live here.
This was one of my first waterfront shots, taken from the dock by the Waterfront Park in Eagle Harbor. It is still one of my favorites. Both of these photos show up on Google and both of them have been grabbed (11 comments)
Why You Should Invest in Jacksonville Florida - 10/09/11 11:04 PM
Why You Should Invest in Jacksonville Florida We know why we love living in Jacksonville, but here is a report on why Fox Business thinks our Florida city is one to watch. We were named one of Kiplinger.com's cities to watch for recovery in 2011, but there is more good news in our future, thanks to the Panama Canal. That's right, Post Panamax ships are going to create a lot of opportunity for Jacksonville and that means population increase, which means real estate investing here right now could be a very smart investment down the road. The population of Jacksonville (2 comments)
