Park Place Shopping Plaza in Boca Raton Florida Meet Boca Raton's newest shopping plaza - Park Place. Located on Military Trail just north of Yamato, Park Plaza is a welcome addition.  The 64,000 square foot plaza recently opened with Fresh Market as an anchor store. Along with Fresh Market, there will be lots of good food to eat. Park Place will include Raw Juice, a juice bar and vegan food restaurant, Habit Burger, Chipotle, Burton's Grill and Rappy's, a deli.  Other tenants will include Phenomenon, a nitrogen-based ice cream.  Sounds interesting.  This is a new one for me.  And  an Eileen Fisher Boutique.  Also scheduled to open is an Italian restaurant.   With so many businesses and residential homes nearby, Park Place is sure to fill a need and be a hit at the same time.  This is a...

On Monday morning, we put Buttons to sleep.  She became critically ill and went downhill very fast.  Buttons came to us at 5 months old.  She just celebrated her 14th birthday on January 1st.  We took her to our vet who asked to do an X-ray and some blood work before we made any decisions.  She had acute pancreatitis, fever of 105, was breathing on one lung and some other issue with her stomach, that we feel was cancer. She was in terrible pain. Vet told us even if she was able to stabilize her from the pancreatitis and bring her fever down, we would then have to deal with her lung issue, which could be fluid or cancer, as well as her stomach issue, which could be the same.  She went on to say that given her age, mortality was high. We really had no choice.  Buttons hated being poked, p...

Hey there, I'm Lucy and this is my brother Diego.  We ended up in Boca Raton, Florida because our mom and dad like the warm weather and the beach. They surfed the web and found a pet-friendly realtor in Boca who loves dogs.  So they called her.  Mom and Dad and the pet-friendly realtor really hit it off, so they went to look at some pet-friendly condos in Boca Raton Florida.    Well, that didn't pan out because there are two of us.  Yup, two of us.  It seems pet-friendly condos in Boca Raton can sometimes be difficult to find.  And difficult it was...so they changed course.   Mom and Dad decided to look at some pet-friendly homes for sale in Boca Raton FL.  Smart idea!  Hey, we weren't staying home.  They knew it, so they figured they better do something.  The thing was, Mom wanted to b...

Happy Birthday Buttons & Happy New Year Buttons is 14 today.  She came to us at 5 months old from a breeder who wouldn't use her for showing because she had pointy ears and a broken tail. She was to be used for breeding.  A friend of mine told the breeder, No, don't do that.  I have a friend who would love to have her.  And so it began... Buttons joined Coco, our special needs dog.   Coco wasn't much of a player so Buttons kind of hung with and protected her.  When Gracie joined the group, the playing began in earnest! Buttons was jet black and white as a puppy.  She loved to watch lizards.  She loved and still loves to go for walks.  She has since greyed (haven't we all?)  She has lost her hearing, but follows me everywhere.    Here she is this past week having retrieved the treat from...

Active Rain Meet Up in Delray Beach FL Our fall 2016 Active Rain Meet Up was held this past Thursday at Deck 84 in Delray Beach.  It was hosted by Kathy Streib, who always does a magnificent job as hostess. In attendance were Kathy Streib Lou Ludwig Eileen Burns, who brought her mom Sally, and myself.  It was a small group but conversation was non-stop. That seems to happen whenever Rainers get together!  There are no shortage of words or topics to discuss! Much the same as logging on, I learned something new. What an amazing group of people I am thrilled to be part of!

Although the real estate market is healthy in many areas of the country, there are still some homeowners who may find themselves in trouble.  If property values are less than the mortgage that is owed on a house, like may be the case with Boca Raton luxury homes, then the house is considered upside down. In cases like this, homeowners may be finding it difficult to pay their mortgages or stay in their home. Short Sale OptionIf you or a real estate client happens to be in a situation like this, then a short sale may be the best option. A short sale on Boca Raton luxury homes or another real estate market can occur when the amount of money still owed on the property is more than what the property can be sold for. With permission from the lender, a short sale may help the homeowner settle ...
