Our Local Smart Traffic Cameras in Gainesville are cool!  It’s call an Advanced Traffic Management System.  This provides public access to traffic issues here, and I am amazed at how nice this system is.   I will admit that I learned about this via Facebook, and just had to do more research and share it here!

I’ve got a positive attitude about what the new year will bring.   I am hoping that my business will continue to prosper.   I’ve … (4 comments)

gainesville fl: Symphony of Crickets - 11/30/10 01:50 AM
I had a productive “Monday”. After the long weekend, my TO-DO list was pretty large.  But, it all got done and it felt good.  It was a satisfying feeling while cooking dinner.  We got the dishes done and I had just sat down to check email and write a blog, then “poof”….our power went out.

No rain, wind, or storms. But the entire area was out.  (I knew I paid the power bill.) We found some flash lights, and lit a candle.  It’s amazing how QUIET it truly is when the power is out.  No buzz from power supplies, … (1 comments)

gainesville fl: Unique Halloween Decoration in Gainesville - 10/27/09 10:44 AM
While driving out Millhopper Road yesterday, I saw the most unique Halloween decoration in someone's yard.....and I didn't have my camera with me.   So, today I made sure I  had my camera.   I thought it rated a photo to share.
I don't know the owners that live in this home, but it sure get's "two thumbs up" for creativity !!

gainesville fl: NOT your ordinary home for sale on 10 ordinary acres - It's a MUST SEE! - 01/31/09 11:52 PM
This is a true Florida gem.  I have to admit that it is so hard to visualize the beauty of the landscape of this property in the photos.  I will do my best to describe everything in my words on this post.
This home sits on 10.88 acres just 15 minutes west of Gainesville, Florida.   The property is gated and perimeter fenced and you will be surrounded by nature at it's best.  The privacy of this home & property is hard to find so close to all the city feel of Gainesville.

gainesville fl: Gatorback Cycle Park - Yes, we've got Motorcross in Alachua County Florida! (LOCALISM FEATURED) - 01/27/09 03:12 PM
Recently, while talking with one of my real estate clients, an out of state buyer.....she told me her son was into "motocross" and asked if there was a track anywhere near Gainesville? 
I told her about GATORBACK Cycle Park in Alachua, FL, just north of Gainesville.
When she told her son about it......he already knew about it because of some of the popular events that happen at GATORBACK Cycle Park each year. In operation for over 25 years, the 100 acre track is host to the MX Winter Olympics, which usually takes place during Thanksgiving week. 
You can see the full … (5 comments)

gainesville fl: Gainesville in "Alachua" County - How do you pronounce that?? - 08/06/08 09:21 AM
This weekend I had the pleasure of working with "out of state" buyers.   When buyers can make a trip here, I like to call it their "Pre-Purchase Visit", and I am more than happy to be their tour guide.   I know some Realtors are thinking......."oh boy, what a waste of time.....".   But, in my opinion, it helps people relocating to Gainesville become familiar with our beautiful area, and discover the neighborhoods & subdivisions that they like (or dislike). Gainesville is the county seat for Alachua County here in the Sunshine State.   But again this weekend, my buyers asked … (0 comments)

gainesville fl: It's Turn Over Time in Gainesville - 05/03/08 01:05 PM
Anyone living in a "college town" knows what the meaning of "TURN OVER" time.   At the end of each semester, you have students moving in and moving out....Turn Over Time.
Property management companies that deal with rentals know this is their high stress season.  But, I don't want to talk about rentals, let's talk about the Residential Real Estate Market in Gainesville FL.

This week has given me a great dose of Spring fever!
Spring Bloomers are everywhere around Gainesville, Florida.   All types and colors of AZALEAS are strutting their stuff and I had to share and brag about my front lawn.

Another of my ANNUAL blooms are my amarilla bulbs that thrive in my front flower beds.  They too are happy as can be and are proud bloomers too!
