Over the past two days, I have been in Florida, specifically between Delray Beach and West Palm Beach, to initiate a Feng Shui analysis. The site has an intriguing history as a family owned and operated hotel (est. in 1925) that is currently functioning as a hostel. During the analysis, we observed which part of the current building's facade would be preserved and integrated into the newly designed hotel. Inventory of the hotel’s 1925 original furnishings was also taken into consideration, which will be incorporated into the new hotel once it is constructed. Here are a few photos of the current interior of the hotel.     One of the photos showcases an antique mirror that is an original piece and we hope to repurpose it in the new design. In Feng Shui we are very mindful of mirrors, howe...

  Valencia Real Estate Market Report for March 2024 shows what happened in each Valencia in Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and Lake Worth, Florida for that month.We had a busy winter in south Florida.  It was was quiet at first, and then things took off.  Several factors were involved, I believe, which caused buyers to stop in their tracks and then reconsider.We have more inventory than we've seen in a long time.  There has been a lot of talk about insurance and homes needing new roofs.  This is still true and has been happening in Florida the past few years.If a home has a new roof or is in the process of getting a new roof - it takes time to get permits and order roof tiles - the home will likely sell.  Of course, you still have to think about location and what the rest of the house look...

"There is no such thing as too much truth"Bob WoodwardRenowned journalist Bob Woodward once proclaimed, "There’s no such thing as too much truth."  His quote invites us to reconsider our relationship with truth.Our continuing search for truth, takes us on a path that is not always straightforward.  We are currently living in a world that is inundated with misinformation and propaganda.  We keep hearing about fake news.  Who are we to trust?  Journalists should bear a solemn responsibility to uphold the highest standards of journalistic ethics and integrity.  It once was that way.  Now, we are constantly dealing with an onslaught of misinformation.  Truth is not a mere concept; it is the cornerstone upon which our understanding of the world is built.  Without truth, society turns into ch...

Simple Act of KindnessWhen I lost Corrie in March, I had just refilled her medications.  And she was on a lot of them.  Her heart medication was the most expensive, and I had two sealed bottles of it.I thought about what to do with them.  Some of the other meds were from the pharmacy in prescription bottles.  I was hesitant to give to those to people I didn't know, but the heart medication was factory sealed in boxes.I decided to put a post up on NextDoor.   At the time, the Vetmedin sold for about $ 76 for 50 pills, for a dog Corrie's size.  So I figured I'd ask $ 100 for the two bottles and see what happened.A woman contacted me asking about them.  We texted back and forth.  She had an older dog she had inherited after the owner passed away.  The dog was taking Vetmedin and she could ...

An Attitude of Gratitude:  Thankful for My Clients One of the best parts of my business are the people I've met along the way, many of who have become real friends.In court reporting, I met people on depositions daily, but I didn't get to spend time with them.  Especially because in those days I wasn't allowed to speak, except maybe on a break.  I was too busy writing and making sure I had everything I needed, like spellings of words or names, to put a transcript together.In real estate, I meet people and develop relationships all the time.  It may start with a text, phone call or email because of a blog they came across.  Sometimes it's a referral from a past client, friend or colleague. However it happens, I have a chance to get to know this person who is looking to buy or sell a home...
