What You Learn When Moving to Florida

When I told my friends and family I was moving to Florida I heard the same two things over and over. "Beware of alligators" and "Lucky, you'll get to go to the beach every day!" I've been living in Florida close to three years now and I have yet to see an alligator in the wild, and I far from go to the beach every day. But I have learned a few things along the way that I would have never expected to have had to learn. 

1. 78 degrees is perfect.

Up North, during Summer, everyone kept their thermostats set to 72 degrees. Even then sometimes you'd sneak past your mom and crank the AC to 68. In Florida, it's HOT. And I mean hot. So walking from 500 degrees F outside, to a non-muggy, 78 degree home, it feels

September 10, 2017, Florida was hit with Irma, a hurricane that would forever change the lives of many. That much we know, but will it forever change the future of real estate in Florida, as well?

Our homes in The Keys are on the water, but because we've

Did Building Codes Save Florida Homes?

It’s indisputable that hurricane Irma effected so many people’s lives in the worst way imaginable. While many were left with no home, others were left with missing family members. Our hearts go out to those families that were deeply affected and we are active and doing our part to help in any area that we can.

There’s a lot of Irma hype filling up our Facebook newsfeeds right now but one article stood out. Realtor.com made a good point in one of their blogs. Here’s a recap:

Michael and Stephany Carr live in Naples in a home built before 2002 building codes. If you know any hurricane history, you know that 3 years after those codes were mandated, Wilma ripped through Florida. Many homes were destroyed

Living By the Water Actually has Health Benefits!

We've all felt it. You get near the ocean and you can start smelling the water, feeling the breeze, tasting the salt in the air. Then, with one deep breath you just feel better. Every stress leaves and you feel present in that moment. You watch the waves crash and the water glide up on the shore, and get lost. It's a much better feeling than getting lost in an ever-updating sea of social media, wouldn't you agree?  Science says there is a reason you feel that sort of calmness. Here's why:

  1. Relaxation. The Ocean has been proven to relax the mind and improve creative thinking. So if you've been having writers block, take a trip to sea.
  2. Activity. Living near the water encourages an active life
