 Homes For Sale With a Pool in Boca Raton FL Are you looking for Homes for Sale with a Pool in Boca Raton FL?   Usually people have a preference about pools.  Either they want an in-ground swimming pool or they don't, or maybe they are ok with it either way.  My homes have all had pools, but that doesn't mean they are for everyone.  Pools can be a great source of relaxation and entertainment for those living in south Florida.

 Found this today  printed in 2004.  Still worth another read for animal lovers. I shall wear Turquoise and soft gray sweatshirts...and a bandanna over my silver hair...and I shall spend my Social Security Checks on Sweet Wine and My Dogs...and sit in my house on my well-worn chair and listen to my dog's breathing.   I will sneak out in the middle of a warm summer night and take my dogs for a run, if my old bones will allow...and when people come to call, I will smile and nod as I show them my dogs...and talk of them and about them...  The Ones so Beloved of the Past and the Ones so Beloved of Today... I still will work hard cleaning after them and mopping and feeding them and whispering their names in a soft, loving way...I will wear the gleaming sweat on my throat, like a jewel.  And ...

Remodeling projects on Boca Raton luxury homes may require a contractor.

With any of these, it’s probably a good idea to hire a contractor to ensure the home improvement project is done correctly. Some of the answers you need to know before committing yourself to a contractor is to insist on a payment schedule tied to project progress, and a termination clause in your written contract that allows you to walk away easier if terms are not met.Get more tips on how to hire a good contractor.

I've posted recently about the Grand Opening event for our new downtown Boca Raton office. Let me tell you - renovating an office is not for the faint of heart. It all started when we took over a space that not exactly functional. It's location is prime - with a corner bay in a busy upscale retail plaza, and exposure to both Federal Highway (main thoroughfare for those that don't know South Florida) and exposure when people pull into the plaza, however it was one large space with no real floor plan. It felt like 1000 square feet of nothing. The previous company was set up with 12 large executive desks that took up most of the area. There was a conference room in the back which meant that clients had to walk through a mess to get to the conference room ( which also doubled as a kitchen.)...
