atlantic beach: Jacksonville Jaguars & Everbank Field Upgrades, Jacksonville, FL - 07/11/14 07:38 AM

 
You may have heard a few little comments here and there about the upcoming improvements to Everbank Field, home to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
I managed a sneak peek the other night, while at an event to kickoff the Everbank promotion offering a lucky homebuyer the chance to fly to London, England to watch an NFL game.  Of course, there were "no cameras, please" signs, but the event itself was quite nice.
The event was a nice size: not too large to be a massive thing, but not so small that people were uncomfortable. The menu included: mini cottage pies, … (8 comments)

atlantic beach: Looking For A Home In Neptune Beach, FL With FHA Financing? - 06/11/14 09:34 PM

 
 
 
If you are a buyer, looking to purchase with an FHA loan, there are a few things you may want to be aware of, especially if you are looking in Neptune Beach, FL.
As a long time Beaches resident, and a full time Realtor, I monitor our activity multiple times daily. I look at the new homes on the market every day to send to my buyers. I look at what went under contract, what's sold, what's back on the market.  Every single day.

atlantic beach: I'm SO Good ! - 06/11/14 05:06 AM

 
 
I have had two recent experiences that are amazingly similar.
One was a $50K condo foreclosure that my buyer won on the highest & best, and was in danger of not closing.
The other was a couple from Tallahassee looking for a retirement place here in Atlantic Beach in the $600K+ price range.
So, what's so similar?
Both came via online source, and started with texting.
The other similarity?
Both women in each scenario have now decided to take the state real estate course, and get their license. 
I'm so good, I'm converting buyers into Realtors!

atlantic beach: Password Security - 04/11/14 11:12 PM

 
In light of the recent Heartbleed issue, I checked on a password security site yesterday.
Now, I have various passwords, and variations so some (key word) of my passwords will take an estimated 6 years to hack.  The key is to use upper case, lower case, a number & a special character or two. Some of this may be dictated by the site, as some don't accept any special characters or just a handful.
One of my passwords, which I thought was clever, apparently, was not, and could be cracked INSTANTLY.  I had used upper case, lower case, and … (15 comments)

atlantic beach: What Did It Sell For? - 03/28/14 05:41 AM
 

I know there are skeptics in the world. They don't believe that house isn't for sale, they don't believe it will sell for more than list price, they don't belive in offering full price.
I thought it might be interesting to occasionally go back and post about a house that sold.
We had the following listing in our local MLS:
Property needs to be demolished has extensive fire damage however does include detached garage and inground pool. Buyer accepts all liability of any violations. Do not trespass on the property anyone that trespasses will accept all liabilities of any … (19 comments)

atlantic beach: Spring Has Sprung At The Beach! The Cyclists Are Out In Full Force! - 03/10/14 02:47 AM
I know I enjoyed our weather here at the Jacksonville Beaches in Florida this past weekend - it was our first sunny days in the past week, after a week of Nor'easter weather kept us in rain and cloudy skies.
First Street from Ponte Vedra Beach to Atlantic Beach was packed with cyclists, pedestrians, moms with babies in strollers, and skateboarders.
It's important for those visiting our area, or new to our area be aware of how to drive safely given the large influx of non-vehicular traffic.
On First Street, for example, cyclists do not stop at the stop signs - … (6 comments)

Although our weather lately has not been the kind you think of for outdoor actvities, our forecast is supposed to start clearing up and warming up today just in time for the annual Concours d'Elegance on Amelia Island. 
This annual fundraiser has raised over $2.25 million for local charities since inception and if  you have not been, it really is a great way to spend a few hours (or more) looking at antique autos in prisitine shape.
There are events that started yesterday, and run through Sunday. The event is at the Golf Club of Amelia, adjacent to the Ritz … (4 comments)

atlantic beach: Continuing Education Classes For Realtors in Northeast Florida - 02/27/14 07:55 PM
As many of you may know, I'm buried deep in the Certified International Property Specialist class this week. Today is the last day 
I took the full week, all five days: it's tough to be in class for a week, but it's sometimes tougher to get all the required classes in under a particular timeframe if you spread them out. 
One of the HUGE advantages of taking classes at my local association NEFAR (Northeast Florida Association of Realtors) is for the designation classes, such as this CIPS, breakfast and lunch were included as part of the registration fee.
Aside from being … (1 comments)
