key largo: Florida Keys Profanity - 06/01/11 11:27 AM
Forget George Carlin's 7 dirty words. Forget the F, S, C, P, D, and just about any other A thru Z words....When it comes to June 1st in the Florida Keys, one word is MOST Profane!!!! Wash your mouth out with bad Zest Profane..and that is The H-Word....Hurricane.
Yes, like most of the Eastern states, The Florida Keys once again hold its collective breath as we start another dreaded Hurricane Season.  Our little stretch of 118 miles of dust, gravel, and mangroves are prone to these suckers!
All joking aside, Hurricanes have had an indelible effect on the Florida Keys.  One visit … (1 comments)

key largo: Come to the Florida Keys and Revel In Our Breathtaking Sunsets! - 05/28/11 03:53 PM
Living in the Florida Keys is a delight for the senses...The smell of salt in the air....the hint of the afternoon breeze caressing your skin....the sounds of albatross flying overhead...the tarte taste of key limes.. but it is the sights...the sights that overwhelm you. 
One of the most glorious sights in the Florida Keys are our reknowned sunsets, as evidenced by two shots of tonight's sunset in Key Largo!


So, Come to the Keys..and let your senses...go...wild!!

key largo: I Love Being an Ambassador for The Florida Keys!! - 05/26/11 06:10 AM
As your Florida Keys Real Estate Conchquistador, one of my favorite aspects of doing what I do, is being an ambassador for all things Florida Keys.Yesterday, I had some very nice clients from Dallas that are moving here, and I had the privilege of showing them The Keys from a Conch's perspective (For those of you who do not know, besides being a delicious mollusk a Conch is a nickname for people from the Keys). Though they had previously been to the Keys, mostly Key West, it was a true delight to turn them onto some of our local charm.  Like, how … (1 comments)

OK...so I have not ALWAYS been the Conchquistador.  In my previous life (before Real Estate), I was actually a successful Recording Industry Executive and Studio owner (think a kinder but still as critical Simon Cowell) and...Songwriter.  Though my stuff never hit the top of the charts...(what you don't know "Oil in The Harbor", "Modern Day Pirate", or even "Key West Queen"?????) I love the craft of songwriting and this event is really going to be fun!

May 15 is not one of my favorite days....Why, you ask???  Because, it marks the end of Stone Crab Season!  I really can't complain though, as we had a really good haul this year. This year, I switched up my game and moved my pots ( pretentious fishermen talk for traps) to a new location, just north of Garden Cove, stretching about 2 miles, just offshore of the unpopulated part of Key Largo in about 7-10 feet of water.  Bonanza!!!   Great Hauls with Big crab with LARGE Original Claws!!  This is an out of the way area that gets little attention and therefore, … (1 comments)
