With all the media reporting "the sky is falling", I have decided to take advantage of the not so crazy time on Anna Maria Island. October and November are my favorite months on the island, the weather is getting cooler and it is a perfect time to walk the beach and remember why we are here. We sometimes get so busy running around showing property that we miss the real beauty of Anna Maria. I remember one day showing property at the north end of the island with another Realtor and she stated, "Wow, I have never seen this part of the island before"...OK... I know for myself it is important to take advantage of this quiet time, it will not last. It is a great time to breathe in some new energy and get ready for the season that is upon us. Everyone, do yourselves a favor and take some time out to relax and regroup. Whether it is taking time with the family or putting your marketing schedule together while sitting outside in a comfortable chair, now is a good time to take a deep breath and appreciate your surroundings.
