realtor in st augustine: The Party Continues.... - 10/29/09 04:12 AM
The City of St. Augustine Beach continues to celebrate its birthday with music and exhibits in the city's Cultural Arts Center. The exhibit is part of an event called a Chautauqua. What is a Chautauqua? 
I had to Google that one and found that it was an "adult education movement in the United States, highly popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Chautauqua assemblies expanded and spread throughout rural America until the mid-1920s. The Chautauqua brought entertainment and culture for the whole community, with speakers, teachers, musicians, entertainers, preachers and specialists of the day." The first Chautauqua was held at a campsite … (3 comments)

realtor in st augustine: Final Closeout successful in Beautiful SeaGrove at St. Augustine Beach - 08/17/09 02:09 AM
Final Closeout successful in Beautiful SeaGrove at St. Augustine Beach
 A few remaining townhomes signal a successful closeout at SeaGove at St. Augustine Beach on Anastasia Island.  Priced to sell, the homes at SeaGrove offer the perfect mix of intimate, small-town friendliness, coupled with superb location, sophisticated design and wonderful amenities.
The Luxury Condominiums of SeaGrove were carefully designed and solidly built with the finest materials and outstanding craftsmanship.  Concrete block construction is extremely important to many buyers who are looking at homes in St. Augustine. I attribute the quality construction and unique island neighborhood to the successful developer close-out.

realtor in st augustine: Economist believes that home sales will continue to rise - 06/08/09 11:47 PM
Economist believes that home sales will continue to rise.  However, with today's market so competitive, setting the right price is critical.
Housing analysts have revised their forecast and are predicting existing home sales volume of 4.68 million units for 2009.
According to Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, the increased activity can be attributed to both newer demand from first-time home buyers, and a seasonal rise in interest from repeat buyers. "Most of the sales are taking place in lower price ranges and activity is beginning to pick up in the mid-price ranges," he said.
An April survey revealed first-time buyers declined … (0 comments)

Here are 5 Keys to Successful Networking:
 
Bring a lot of cards and keep them accessible.  How professional is it to be fumbling about the bottom of your bag searching for a card.   Develop a brief “elevator speech” about yourself and your business.  The key is brief, don’t talk endlessly about yourself.  Ask more questions, such as how did you get started in your business … (3 comments)
