Trieste and Tuscany Village -  Gated Townhomes in Boca Raton, Florida
 
Nestled along Federal Highway are Trieste and Tuscany Village, both gated townhome communities in Boca Raton.  Centrally located just a few minutes from downtown Boca Raton's Mizner Park as well as Delray Beach's trendy Atlantic Avenue, these communities offer location, location, location!  For those who don't want the responsibility of maintaining a single family home, a townhome may be just the thing for you.  The association maintains the exterior of your home as well as the landscaping.  You maintain only the interior.   And, in Trieste, you have a backyard as well!

Non-Gated Pet Friendly Communities in Boca Raton, FL
 
Although there are many pet friendly gated communities in Boca Raton and Delray Beach, there are also many non-gated pet friendly communities.  Some people prefer these types of communities for any number of reasons;  1) the maintenance tends to be lower as there is no guard or gate, 2) they are usually less strict with their rules and regulations in these communities and 3) some people simply do not like living in a homeowner's association.   There is something for everyone in south Florida.
 
The following communities are non-gated and pet friendly.  These are all resales.

Stuck At The Bridge...
 
Stuck at the Bridge is an expression well known to south Floridians.    Everyone living here or visiting here at one time or another has called someone to say, I got stuck at the bridge, or I'm stuck at the bridge.   It's a way of life down here that we accept in exchange for the warm weather and the beauty of our surroundings

My Trip to Vegas 2010
 
Sorry for not posting in Vegas.  I forgot my cable to transfer pictures (who wants a post without pictures?), had my parents with me and came down with a strep throat.  Had a great time anyway!   There is something very satisfying about seeing your child happy and content, especially a difficult-to-raise child.  That made my trip all worthwhile.
                                      
Saw as much as we could.  My favorite hotels were The Bellaggio, the Venetian and the Paris.  I haven’t been in Vegas in over 30 years, and it has changed a lot.  The hotels are … (9 comments)

Everyone is looking to save money today; however, you still need a good Realtor when buying or selling a home.  We are in a different real estate market than years gone by, especially in Boca Raton and south Florida.   Back then FSBOs - For Sale By Owners - often did sell.  Everything sold in those days and often quite fast.  Times have changed and so has our market and the time and way homes sell.  It is much more difficult and time consuming to sell a … (13 comments)
