Your Humble Conchquistador recently had the opportunity to entertain old friends from the far away Country of California.  Of course the highlight of their visit was the Keys.

As your humble Conchquistador, I am proud to announce that on January 1st, I will be assuming the role of General Manager of my firm, American Caribbean Real Estate.  I must say that this is the proudest moment of my real estate career!
 
I have followed American Caribbean Real Estate (ACRE for short) since I first entered real estate, almost 17 years ago, when I practiced on the mainland and both ACRE and the real estate company that I was then with, were both Sotheby's Affiliates.  I was continually impressed with their market dominance and caliber of their agents.
