Here is the latest listing of events happening on the Broadwalk at Hollywood Beach.  I will likely be at the Latin Festival and the Full Moon Jazz Festival.  I'd love to do more but unfortunately my schedule prevents me from doing so.  If you're near Hollywood, be sure to stop by.  All of these events are free to the public!

Many will remember 1967 as the "Summer of Love'. It was a Renaissance of sorts as people discovered who they were.It was a "true celebration of life".  With the Summer of 2007 over we`re dubbing it the "Summer of Wove". What a summer for many of us. It was truly a test of passion for our profession as each day something new occurred. Sub Prime Lenders extinct,many Real Estate offices gone and forgotten as well as many of our comrades who are either on permanent "Hiatus" or dealing Poker at the local Seminole Tribe!It`s been a season of "Willing the transaction to happen". I can`t tell you have many transaction I literally took over for either the "Buyer`s Agent or Sellers Agent" insuring the transactions close. The fact is we made many new friends from many other Real Estate companies a...

Last night, one of my closest friends who is a real estate agent and one of my mentors in the business called me and said, "I've never been so embarrassed in my life!" He's the type of person who laughs at his own jokes. I seriously thought that he was just saying that to try to get me out of the dumps since I had been weary lately about some issues. I remained silent waiting to hear his laugh but I guess he was serious."I was at the bar, (we are Karaoke aficionados), for an hour and a half before I realized that my bottom teeth were missing". Still serious about his embarrassing moment I said, "You're joking right?" at this time my grin was getting wider. "No, I'm not, and don't laugh at me. I was going to get up on the stage to sing for the first time, grabbed the microphone and reali...

Besides collecting an array of college books in my library bookshelf, there are countless ones that are in the self-help book genre. From Shakti Gaiwan, author of "Visualization", to Andrew Carnegie author of, "How to Win Friends and Influence People", besides books on success, healthy eating cookbooks, to Internet for Dummies, (I am not too computer savvy).I don't know what I would do without these helpful books, or I would go insane without the direction of some of the greatest writers and philosophers out there who devout themselves teaching and reaching out to others and make a great living at it. Hmmmmm, maybe I should write a book, or should I say, we? Reading these books keep me away from a shrink, No, really. I am true believer in the ‘life is a journey not a destination' philos...

I am trying!!! I need to blog!!! It's in my veins!!! I don't know about you but I am better at improvising a fresh blog from my brain before I go to sleep than in the morning, afternoon or early evening. I catch myself reading about all of your great blogs and before I know it I have been reading and submitting comments for more than 2 hours! In the meantime I was supposed to call my friend April, her son's getting married and they are first time home buyers, awwwww. And wait, tha lady that called me yesterday, what was her name? Oh yeah, Eucaris, she wants a lease with option to buy. Oh boy! I better get to work. I'll blog later.Just so happens to be that while I am typing, all of these ideas pop up in my head and keep typing relentlessly. Next thing I know my blog is soooo long  and I...

Friday, August 17, 2007I had the privilege to meet with EWM Realtors' Vice President and Managing Broker Randi Rapp in Aventura. A few days ago, Randi had sent me an invitation to her office's meeting, ‘Blogging Group'. My pivotal decision in accepting Randi's invitation was primarily due to a vigorous desire to meet innovative blogger's with comparable interests. The meeting took place in a conference room in EWM's prestigious office which had the feel of a comforting ambience. There were several agent's present as we discussed many important facets of blogging.Also present and directing the meeting was Maggie Dokic with the EWM Realtors' Redland Homestead office. Maggie, who has been blogging for over 2 years and is blog savvy, shared her experiences within the Active Rain community. ...

A Whole New WorldThe world of real estate blogging has far reached beyond my expectations. I have been blogging for 3 months, have read lots of them, received comments, made comments and I even got my first featured blog. Yey!Blogging?I remember walking outside of a department store one day and overhearing someone saying, ‘I am a blogger', to someone they were speaking to on their cell phone. A what? I went to my car, drove off, and put that statement in oblivion.My Blogging DebutOriginally, I was doing a Google search on how to market myself and my real estate business efficiently. In doing so, I ran across Brad Andersohn's blog and joined Active Rain instantly. Brad, you are an inspiration! Duh!It's when it finally hit me with the results of my search that I said to myself, ‘Oh, so th...

A close friend of mine and me were sitting al fresco at a restaurant in Downtown Hollywood in another hot summer day. The clouds were hurriedly over casting the faint, blue skies. It was a relief on our skin since we were outdoors, due to the infamous sticky humid weather in South Florida."You always wear the best handbags, the finest jewelry, you have such a beautiful home, a luxurious SUV, and where did you get those Prada sunglasses, I hate you"!"Well don't, as a matter of fact I might be going into foreclosure", she says.My friend, not knowing what to say or do and seemingly desperate, could not help but shed a tear or two. "I didn't know that you were going through that, why didn't you tell me this before? I am your friend and don't forget, I am a Real Estate Agent. Didn't you thin...

No matter how or where the real estate market or the lending/mortgage industry is taking a turn, we must continue to strive to do our very best in our professional lives. That means, believing in ourselves. Some of us have a comfort zone, and on occasion, may have undoubtedly marked a financial impact in our minds, our lives, nevertheless, our commissions.We can choose to let others step up and make something out of their lives and careers right in front of us. Or we can step up to ourselves and join others in the challenging field of the real estate industry. If you don't do it, someone else will. No matter what, real estate is happening! My philosophy: "There is plenty of money for everyone to make out there".We must not look at our external environment but rather focus in our knowled...

Follow the habit of rendering more service and better service than you are paid to render.Enter into no transaction which does not benefit, as nearly alike as possible, everyone it affects.Make no statement which you do not believe to be true, no matter what temporary advantages a falsehood might seem to offer.Have a sincere desire in your heart to be of the greatest possible service to the largest number of people.Cultivate a wholesome admiration for people; like them better than you like money!Do your best to live as well as preach your own philosophy of business. Actions speak louder than words!Accept no favors, large or small, without giving favors in return.Ask nothing of any person without believing that you have a right to that for which you ask.Enter into no arguments with any p...

"Even though the market is soft, one thing is for certain; people will always need a place to live", says Richard Pentaleri, a Florida State Certified Res. REA, Pentaleri & Associates, LLC.Selling One, Buying AnotherIn a perfect world, you sell your old home an buy the new one on the same day. Given that things rarely turn out perfectly, here are some things to keep in mind as you negotiate the sale of one house with the purchase of another.Time It RightFall and spring are the best times for homes to move and you want to consider the season of the year when you are buying and selling, and if the closing dates aren't going to coincide, a gap - rather than two mortgages - is for the better. It is easier and usually cheaper to find temporary housing than juggle two mortgages.Selling FirstS...

Reasons why homes don't sellIf you have had your home on the market for several months and haven't seen much activity or any offers, chances are that one or more of the reasons below are to blame. Your price is too high No doubt about it, the most common reason for a home not selling is that the asking price has been set too high. The reasons for setting your price too high to begin with are many, ranging from over enthusiastic listing agents to unrealistic seller expectations. Regardless of the reason, if you have priced your home too high, you have set yourself up for a number of obstacles to selling your home. Even if you do get an offer for the overly high asking price, the deal may fall apart before closing because the buyer may have problems financing at too high a price. Look at ...

Periodically the Hollywood Beach Community Redevelopment Agency comes out with a list/flyer of upcoming events.  Most often there are music concerts at the Hollywood Beach Theater which is an outdoor stage.  Attendance is free and one will always find locals relaxing while listening to music.  In addition, there are numerous other cultural events that are sponsored.

Two cornerstone buildings in a project aimed at turning Young Circle into a center of art and culture have gone into foreclosure, leaving taxpayers on the hook for at least $1.6 million in mortgages.The Young Circle Garage, bought with an $800,000 loan from the city three years ago, goes on the auction block May 17, and the Hollywood Bread Building is being foreclosed while owing at least $800,000 to the city, according to court records. The city never obtained first mortgages, meaning Hollywood is last to be paid if any money remains when the properties are sold.City officials are negotiating with another developer to take over the project before the auction, but the property owned by HART District Ltd., which covers the entire southeast corner of Young Circle, has been on the block fo...
