Tequesta in the Top Safest Florida Cities

The Village of Tequesta ranked #12 in the Top 100 Safest Florida Cities according to a study by Alarm System Reviews. This evaluation focused on communities with 2,500 residents or more taking into account reported violent and property crimes. Taking these factors into consideration, crime rates were compared to other Florida towns.

The Village of Tequesta has remained a popular place to live since its inception in the 1950s. Originally planned around the Tequesta Country Club and incorporated in 1957, the Village of Tequesta is the place 5,844 lucky residents call home. In this quaint coastal town, residents enjoy living along the riverfront, beautiful parks, boating, and fishing.

Screen Enclosure Trends in Real Estate

We are always willing to share tips and trends with our clients looking to buy and sell local real estate. One question we have been asked lately from our buyers is whether or not the property has a screen-enclosed patio.  Once a standard for a back porch in the 1960s and 1970s, screen enclosures provided a way to allow fresh air and natural ventilation free from outside pests in homes that did not originally have air conditioning. With air conditioning becoming a standard feature in South Florida homes in the late 1970s, many homebuyers started removing these screens to simplify home maintenance. We have seen the trend of screen enclosures circle back around not only for personal taste, but also for health and safety reasons. A recent article in

Carmines Gourmet Market

Palm Beach Gardens is a hub of activity in Palm Beach County with an abundance of shopping, dining, and entertainment. One of the things we love most about living in Palm Beach Gardens and the surrounding communities is the fine market selections. One of the most common questions we hear when showing our clients the area is ‘where is the best grocery store?’. If you are looking for fresh, authentic, and often organic fine foods, Palm Beach Gardens is home to Carmine’s Gourmet Market. Nestled by the marina on the corner of PGA Boulevard and Prosperity Farms Road you will find this a wonderland of groceries, fine wines, and prepared foods.

What makes Carmine’s different from other grocery stores? Overall, we are impressed with the consistent quality.
