A few days ago, I had the privilege of closing a deal on 2212 Aitkin Loop in Leesburg, Florida. Today, I received this very special testimonial on my email: "It is with great pleasure that I recommend Platinum International Realty Group, Johnny Davis. I recently needed to sell my property in Leesburg, Florida and when I called Johnny in October of 2012 I explained that I was considering putting my property there on the market, that I had owned less than 3 years and most importantly, would have to get enough to pay off the mortgage. he agreed to come to my home that same day, and that was a Sunday!

Pedestrian Tales From The Middle of the Road, #17 and #18 Man....after a brief pedestrian death hiatus, the Lord's calling folks home in two's!  For the police on the scene to go with "they appeared to have beem drinking before the crash" without the benefit of any blood tests or breathalyzer readings, I'd say they found must have found some beer cans in the vicinity. Yet another preventable tragedy- this one falling under the less-than-watchful eyes of Leesburg Police Chief William "Bill" Chrisman and Lake County Sheriff Gary Borders.  Enforcement of our traffic laws is a great deterrent- and can save lives in a number of cases. Word to the wise:  if you're liquored up by 8 on a Thursday night, be sure to cross the street in a crosswalk. May God give comfort to all three families invol...
