Palm Beach County School Registration

As August rapidly approaches, getting ready for school is on the minds of Palm Beach County parents and students. Students in Palm Beach County head back to school on August 15th, seemingly earlier than years past. For those that are new to the area or have relocated within Palm Beach County and plan on attending public school, it is important to make sure that your completed registration packet is submitted to the school district.

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

Hurricane Preparations 2016

Today is the official start of the 2016 hurricane season; for those looking to purchase or sell a home during hurricane season, there are a few things you should know. While everyone should strive to take the normal precautions with an emergency kit, evacuation plan, and list of emergency contact numbers, those who are under contract on either side of a real estate transaction should include these steps to ensure the safety of their current or future home.

1. Talk to your Realtor®

The Realtors® on both sides of the transaction are communicating regularly to guide everyone through the purchase and sale process. Both Realtors® should be open about the efforts being taken to protect the home from possible wind damage. Any wind or rain damage that

We Love Jupiter, Florida

We love living in South Florida, specifically northern Palm Beach and southern Martin Counties. We make this statement often and with passion, which often evokes the question ‘why do you love to live there?’ by those who are not as familiar with the area. Fair enough. When we take a step back to list all of the reasons why we love this area, it sounds as though we live on vacation.

The Loxahatchee River is 7.6 miles of ever changing wide water views, wildlife and sunsets flowing through Jupiter, Tequesta, southern Martin County, and parts of unincorporated Palm Beach County. The Loxahatchee River begins at Riverbend Park, famous for south Florida pioneer Trapper Nelson, and flows out to the Atlantic Ocean via the Jupiter Inlet. The Loxahatchee River is often referred to as “wild and scenic”; a phrase that comes to life in the daily experiences of those who call the river home.

The Loxahatchee River shorelines have been prime waterfront real estate for years. If you are thinking about purchasing or building a home on the water, why consider the Loxahatchee River?

Realtor or Real Estate Agent

Believe it or not, there is a difference between a real estate agent and a Realtor®. A recent episode of ABC’s Modern Family added humor to the situation:

So what is the difference exactly? A Realtor® is a member of the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) and held to a strict Code of Ethics. The complete Code of Ethics is outlined on NAR’s website. Realtors® can be real estate sales associates, brokers, property managers, or appraisers whose practices are accountable by the standards and principles laid out by NAR. Violating these principles can have serious consequences to the licensee. The use of a Realtor® adds an additional level of responsibility in upholding the right to own property.

We enjoy real estate humor and appreciate the
