Why Tampa Bay?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Keller Williams

I have been a Realtor in the Tampa Bay area for over 20 years. When deciding to start this blog I had to ask myself what I would write about and why I love living and working here.

The highlights -

It is warm and sunny almost every day! According to the Pinellas County website we have ONLY on average of 361 days of sunny weather each year, WOW!

One of our local beaches (Caladesi Island State Park Winner of the 2008 "Top Beach In America Award") has been named the top beach IN THE WORLD! This beach is part of the Dunedin / Honeymoon Island area on the Gulf of Mexico. Clearwater Beach is also a favorite of many people looking to go somewhere it is warm.

There are great sports teams like The Tampa Bay Rays, The Buccaneers, and the Storm.

There is a golf course behind every rock and the award winning Island course at Innisbrook is legendary!

All that, affordable housing (especially compared to Naples and South Florida) and what is not to love about te Tampa Bay area?
