daytona beach realtor: Facebook Changes and Abuses Part 2 - 10/23/10 03:46 PM
My last post was a reblog of C Tann Star's post about recent changes on Facebook, that allowed random people to add you to groups without your knowledge. At that point, and up until now, I had not had this personally happen to me... that I know of. But just a few minutes ago, I was logged in, and a box popped up at the bottom of my screen, saying that *insert name* had just added me to the group "Please Join! Stop Bullying In Schools!!".
Well, that certainly sounds like a worthy cause, but the problem is, I did not … (16 comments)

daytona beach realtor: Port Orange Family Days - Happening Right Now! - 10/02/10 05:22 AM
I'm late on posting about Port Orange Family Days this year, since I haven't been blogging as much. And it's happening right now! But don't worry. It lasts all weekend. And so far we're having great weather for it!
So if you live in the Port Orange/Daytona Beach areas, head on over to the Port Orange City Center. If you've never been before, you should definitely go! You can enjoy music, games, food (LOTS of food!), fun and rides at the midway! I rarely miss a year, so I'll be there tomorrow. (You'll probably find me on the rides.)
If you're … (5 comments)

daytona beach realtor: Silly Saturday and Pirate's Booty! - 09/18/10 11:40 AM
Shiver me timbers! Here's something silly and fun, and yer gettin a one-day advance notice fer it. Cuz Sunday, September 19th is "Talk Like a Pirate Day".   (Arrrrr) 
Yes, I'm serious. Of course it's true. It's on them thar internets! (lol) I would SOO love to see pirate videos... wait... not pirated video... Crap... I can't even correct that with the term "bootleg" videos   >.
In reality, "Talk Like a Pirate Day" is actually the launch of a new brand of groceries. But I'll take any excuse to have a bit of fun =)  So lighten up and have a … (10 comments)

daytona beach realtor: Brittany vs Dinosaur (part 2) - 09/08/10 07:21 AM
OK, so this post is not about real estate, since I'm still enjoying the photo (and picture) blogs, and I do tend to get stuck on my favorite image subject... my fabulous daughter! (Biased? What makes you think that?)
On Sunday I posted a picture of my daughter "fighting" a big, bad dinosaur. *Gasp!* There was much deliberation over who would win. Well, according to this shot, I think my daughter showed the dino who's boss! he he.  She took care of one and moved right on to the next one! (lol)
Umm... Notice the sign in the foreground? *sigh*

daytona beach realtor: Brittany vs Dinosaur! - 09/05/10 10:35 AM
Welcome back! (to me-lol) Ahhh... Been having a nice, non-blogging break... *yawn*   (he he)  Still not in a big blogging mood (not ready to jump back in the saddle yet) so I figured, what better way to post something simple, than to feature one of my favorite subjects (my daughter) being her usual, goofy, self. (I still say I have NO idea where she gets this personality!)

Who do you think will win?
Oh. And yes. Once again, I stole this off my daughter's Facebook page. LOL!

daytona beach realtor: Does Your "Professional" Photo Look Like A Facebook Picture? - 08/18/10 08:57 AM
In the last few days, as I've been perusing and commenting on different blogger's posts, I happened to stop in my tracks, as I noticed far too many images that looked like they'd been taken by the same person, while holding the camera at arm's length. They looked more like a picture I would have on my non-business Facebook page. Is it just me, or do these pictures actually lower the level of professionalism on our blogs? Shouldn't a potential client see a quality photo that says "I'm a professional"?
Now I admit that I'm a very visual person. Half the … (79 comments)

daytona beach realtor: (Not) Wordless Wednesday - FROGGY! - 08/18/10 05:50 AM
If you've paid attention you'll know that I have an odd love for frogs. I pick up every one I find. BTW, toads are frogs too. People gave them a different name to differentiate between the bumpy, fat ones and the sticky, big-jumpers, but according to my Animal Enclyclopedia, they're all frogs. How about that? You now know some more useless information! lol
Sooo.... to make me happy, my daughter brought me a little gift into my office  :-D

(I think it's time to clean my keyboard and monitor. But isn't he cute? =)  He was a bit hyper though...

daytona beach realtor: Sunday: Burning! - 08/15/10 03:22 AM
Since I've recently shared with you all, that I've been writing a LOT, only it's not about real estate, I decided to share just a little something from under The Willow Tree. Whether you worship on Saturday or Sunday, we serve the same God; and I pray blessings, healings, miracles, and encouragement for all of you.  (The following poem/prayer *possibly a song in the future, if I add to it*, was written about a year ago.)
BURNING
As we look up to the Heavens; His fire is burning and it glows.
May that fire falll upon us, and purify our souls.

daytona beach realtor: Contract Pending on Daytona Beach area House. Professional REALTOR® Advice for Consumers - 08/10/10 12:27 AM
I'm going to start this post with a bit of info about a sale on one of my real estate listings. But more importantly; I'm going to segue into some very important food-for-thought about how you, as a real estate buyer or a real estate seller, choose a real estate professional to represent you; and hopefully I'll educate you a bit, about the importance of how your REALTOR® handles the many intricacies that happen behind-the-scenes.
At this time, I have a bilateral contract on the house I have listed at 225 Arragon, located on the Holly Hill/Ormond Beach border (just 10 … (6 comments)

daytona beach realtor: From a Central Florida REALTOR® - "AAAAAHHHHH!!!!" and "AAAAAAAHHHHH!!!" - 08/02/10 01:27 PM
Have you ever been to Blizzard Beach? (It's a Disney theme park in Orlando, FL: only an hour or so away from the Daytona Beach area!) And have you decided to ride the 90 foot drop that actually gets you airborne on the way down?
When you're at the top, your given strict instructions to keep your legs and arms crossed. Why? Well, when you land in the pool at the bottom, can you say "Super Wedgie!!??" LOL  And since there are always a number of pervs standing around, just waiting to catch a glimpse of whatever "escapes" on the way … (20 comments)

daytona beach realtor: Speechless Sunday-Snow in July? ... in Florida!!?? - 07/25/10 04:19 PM
Can it be!??
No, of course not. It's just a Snowy Egret :-D  My brother took this photo. And I think he did a great job on this one (except for the date stamp), so I decided to share it. (This is from the bro who took those crazy weather shots over the ocean!) But this one's much more peaceful. And this little guy doesn't seem to mind if his feathers are getting ruffled.

daytona beach realtor: Photo Friday - Above the Chicago Skyline - 07/23/10 04:31 PM
Today is not one of my usual photo days, but a friend of mine who frequently travels to Chicago insisted on e-mailing me this photo today. He said I HAD to see it. I warned him that if I liked it, he knew where it would end up. He didn't care. Sooo....  ENJOY!  Isn't this amazing!?

BTW, a lot of the photos you see on my blog, if taken by my friend Nick, are from Chicago, where he lives =)  But this one happens to be from a REALTOR right here in Port Orange, who has family in Chicago. So … (16 comments)

daytona beach realtor: Get A Piece of Daytona International Speedway. Repaving Happening Now! - 07/21/10 01:06 AM
Daytona Beach area residents and visitors, here's some interesting news for NASCAR Racing Fans. The Daytona International Speedway is currently being repaved... a one year project that began right after the "400". What's interesting about this repaving are a couple of key points.
This is the first time the track has been re-paved since 1978; only the 2nd re-paving since it was built. Fans will have an opportunity to own a piece of the old track. This idea came from the behaviors of passionate Dale Earnhardt fans who began digging up turf from the infield after his historic 1998 win at … (6 comments)

daytona beach realtor: Photo Blog - Happy Dolphin! - 07/12/10 11:54 AM
On my last photo post, "Sailing Away, Captain Ron Style" I shared a photo of my husband's Hudson Force 50 sailboat on which he was living when we first met. In keeping with that theme, I decided to share another photo from my hubby's sailing days.
When Mark and his buddy, Mike, who took the trip with him, would sail in open waters, quite frequently there would be herds of dolphins that would swim alongside the boat with them. I've heard many stories of how they'd drop anchor and jump in for a swim with the dolphins. (I think I've been … (18 comments)

daytona beach realtor: Rule Enforcers vs Rule Breakers; and Florida Real Estate Contracts - 07/04/10 02:17 AM
I was recently reading an article in a local magazine, that was written by a Little League Baseball Coach. He is a bonafide Rule Enforcer. He knows every rule of the game, and exactly how far they can or cannot be bent. He also knows a couple of common mistakes that are made by other coaches when they get 2 similar rules confused. As I read the article, my mind was comparing his nature, and his experiences, to my own nature and experiences, and how these can apply to the real estate industry as well.
I admit to being a Rule … (6 comments)

daytona beach realtor: 4th of July Celebrations Abound. How About Doing it "Daytona Beach Style"? - 07/01/10 05:56 PM
Today is July 1st. It's almost Independence Day. And in Daytona Beach, that means we'll be overrun by race crowds. As a Daytona Beach native (and REALTOR®) who tends to forget about practically every special event we have, I was reminded of our upcoming Big Race when one of my Jacksonville cousins contacted me via Facebook, to see if they could crash at our house this weekend before heading to the "Coke Zero 400".
So I guess I'll have a house full of relatives tomorrow night, and I'll need to allow for a lot of extra time when showing houses and … (2 comments)
