Have you ever wondered what sets us apart from any other Realtor that works with Buyers?We are a true Exclusive Buyer Agency. We never take a listing but show you all homes available in our area as well as Hillsborough, Pasco and Manatee Counties. Search the MLS directly from our site.We firmly believe that the Home Buyer has a right to full and equal representation and service; just as the Seller receives from a Listing Agent. Any Real Estate Agent can be a Buyer's Agent but can also represent a Seller at any time.  If the Brokerage represents Sellers, the Agent cannot be an "Exclusive" Buyer Agent. Consumers are learning how the real estate industry works and demanding the level of service that only an Exclusive Buyer agent is able to provide. The Exclusive Buyer Agent, therefore, is ...

  We have a lot of debate here in Clearwater, Florida regarding the cost and availability of property insurance on our homes and condos- but this same debate is taking place all over Clearwater / St Petersburg / Tampa Bay Florida...How do we handle the skyrocketing cost of Clearwater area insurance? Those of us that are Clearwater home owners and condo owners  have seen the amount we pay for taxes and insurance skyrocket. I remember my surprise a few years ago when I realized the amount we paid for our home's property taxes and insurance was now larger than our home mortgage principal and interest payment each month. A few years back, voters in Florida passed Save our Homes - a measure that caps our home's property taxes for your primary residence - the goal was to prevent long time res...

Report on Clearwater Florida Real Estate and Community Update: There are several key issues being decided in today's election. The City of Clearwater has a referendum to allow boat slips to be built in downtown Clearwater on the edge of Coachman Park. This item has been up for vote before and lost - we'll see what the citizens of Clearwater decide this time. With the new bridge the downtown is in sore need of attractions and a purpose to get people back down there. In addition, Pinellas County voters will decide whether to extend the Penny for Pinellas Tax which as funded many of the improvements and ammenities we enjoy here like improved roads, parks, new bridges, and more. Many residents locally feel we are on the verge of tax revolt with the impact rising home owners insurance and pr...
