I have not had time to write much about Balboa Island lately. Myself and everyone in my office are very busy. It's spring and interest rates are low and buyers are out shopping. I got this new software where I can make virtual Tours of whatever I desire. There are so many wonderful shots of balboa Island I feel like I need to share them. It's not perfect but I would sure love to get your input. Would you like to see more Newport Beach communities? Are there any particular areas of interest. Just let me know and I will go out and shoot for you. Please take a look at my Balboa Island Tour. CLICK HERE for a VisualTour of Balboa Island.
