Two great reasons to buy
Real Estate ...
This is one of my favorite times of the year in Tampa. That's because it is the perfect time to go to the beach and in this market, it is the perfect time to purchase real estate at the beach.

Did you know that in 2008 our own Caladesi Island was number one on the top US best beaches? It is in our back yard.

Caladesi Island State Park is located west of the city of Dunedin, north of Clearwater. It is best enjoyed by fishing, shelling, or studying nature. Sand dunes line the open beach with turtles and shore birds finding it the perfect location for nesting.

Ferry service is available from the mainland, departing hourly weather permitting. Picnic pavilions, bath houses and a park concessions provide additional amenities to make your visit to Caladesi more enjoyable. Boaters can enjoy the bayside marina where overnight docking is permitted.

Hours of operation are from 8am to sundown, 365 days a year. Saltwater fishing licenses are required in Florida. Admission fees are $4.00 for up to 8 people per private boat and kayakers are $1.00 per person. Fees vary for parking at Honeymoon Island and ferry to Caladesi. Pavilion fees are $32.00 per person with reservations two weeks in advance. Call 727-469-5918 for further information.

Also, we have another beach voted as the number one beach in the US in 2005. Fort Desoto Park is located in the southwest corner of Mullet Key, at the entrance to Tampa Bay. This park was named America's Top Beach in 2008 by TripAdvisor, the world's largest online travel community.
Citing a "spectacular combination of soft white sand, calm, clear water and a laid back atmosphere," the popular online travel network put the park's North Beach at the top of its annual best-of list.

AND, that is not to mention Clearwater Beach, Indian Rocks Beach, Belleair Beach, St. Pete Beach and many more we have access to.

We really live in an incredible city that affords us many opportunities. If you love the beach like I do, this is the perfect real estate market to purchase your waterfront get away!!

SO, lather on the sunscreen, get a good book, and take a day off from the 'ole grind and head to one of these marvelous beaches!! ENJOY
Local Business Spotlight

I love Fresh Market on Henderson Blvd!! This is truly a one stop shopping experience.
There is absolutely no reason to cook after a long day at work. You can choose from all these prepared foods: 4 different kinds of wings: teriyaki, chipotle bacon, buffalo or natural. There is rotisserie bourbon salmon, baby back ribs, pork loin roast and awesome twice baked potatoes.

The following items require cooking, but they are ready to go. There are bacon wrapped scallops, filet mignon kabobs, bleu cheese burgers, bacon cheddar cheese burgers, along with many different kinds of stuffed chicken breasts.
The store boasts an incredible fresh organic produce department, as well as beautiful fresh flowers. The roses are such a bargain at $8.99 for a dozen!!

Shopping would not be complete without being able to purchase a nice bottle of wine to go along with the wonderful dinner you did not have to prepare.

So after a long day of work without a chance to eat, take a load off and head to Fresh Market. You will be glad you did.
