I broke one of my real estate rules this past week and I am pleased to say I am glad I did.  I did not do anything inappropriate.  Instead I only left the island of Key West and ventured up to Sugarloaf Key to show houses to a potential buyer.

The property can also be legally convert...
Just Listed, but not by me, 621 Olivia Street, Key West. I got to preview this elegant eyebrow house during a broker open house a couple of weeks ago.
