 OK...so I must admit up front...I really like the Mansion in Melbourne, FL. They are a little bit different ...and they know it!This place sort of seems like a bunch of bars, restaurants, deli, and wine store all wrapped together...and it works! The Mansion offers two distinct bars, one on the first floor is sort of a quiet pub that is a good place to meet a client or just chat. The upstairs bar is a great place to view the river, meet on a first date or just hang out with friends after work. Although the menu is the same, the upstairs and downstairs restaurant seating areas have a very different feel (I love going upstairs  after the sun goes down to enjoy our amazing Space Coast weather).The menu itself is a mix of nice entrees (the salmon and pork chops get good reviews), burgers, s...

 In the late 80s and early 90s quite a few very large Space Coast employers began the process of moving employees to the area from the New York and other Northeast locations. With this migration came NY Style Italian restaurants and pizza joints.The best of them tended to settle on the beachside (Petrillo's, Bizarro's, A.N.Y. Pizza, etc...). Many of my mainland friends would get upset because they had to make the long (10 minute) drive to the beach to have a NY Style pizza fix. That has all changed with the opening of N.Y. Pizza Spot in Melbourne, FL. The location is 2231 W. New Haven Ave, W. Melbourne, FL 32904. The phone is 321.802.9558This restaurant offers outstanding NY Style Pizza, great Italian subs (like Meatball and Eggplant), a large Southern Italian dinner menu and some good ...

I know the contest for Ringing and Singing is officially over, but I made the call to our friend and associate Rainer, Gary Waters this pass Sunday afternoon while I was trying to catch folks at home to get that last entry for Debbie’s contest. Since Gary returned my call, I was thrilled to go ahead and visit with him that day. He spared me some time while he was getting ready to go to his 2 year old granddaughter’s birthday party. Gary Waters is the Broker and Owner of Waters Realty of Brevard, LLC in Melbourne, Florida. We had a lot in common as military veterans, since Gary retired from the US Navy in 1996 after serving twenty years for his country.

When it comes to breakfast in the Melbourne, FL area we have quite a few good choices. If you are looking for a place to fill you up (at a good price) and get your day going, I can give you a long list of places that will fit the bill perfectly.If you are looking for a place that is a bit different and kinda cool (and kids will absolutely love) try Backwater in Historic Downtown Melbourne, FL.To say this place is different is kind of an understatement. The griddles in the middle of many tables will signal something unusual is coming. The Louisiana Swamp look will give you the impression of a restaurant that belongs on a dirt road, backing to a bayou just off the Mississippi River!We ordered off both the regular menu (Fried Green Tomato and Spinach Eggs Benedict) and the pancake menu. Th...

The afternoons have been filled with heavy rainstorms around here lately.  We have being having storms with heavy thunder and lightning. Often we find the lights flickering off and on.Yesterday, I got a call from one of my sellers letting me know that the Realtor coming to see her house had not shown up for their 2:30 showing appointment. My seller likes to leave when potential buyers arrive. “Do you think they’re still coming, with all of the rain we’re having?” “I hope so,” I told her. I would find out.I like showing houses after a storm. (Provided the roads aren’t flooded and I am not subjecting my clients to dangerous conditions.) It can be very telling.In looking at houses in the rain, I've seen a house where the back patio was completely underwater and it was an inch from coming i...

Makoto's Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar in Melbourne, FL has an interesting story. It was one of my favorite restaurants when it was located in a hotel directly on U.S.1 some years back. My friends and I would head over in large groups and enjoy the wonderful food, great party rooms and talented chefs. It burned down in the early 1990's (if I remember it was a kitchen fire) and disappeared for a time.My friends and I were all quite happy when the restaurant reappeared in its present location at 785 Babcock St. Makoto's feels like a Japanese steakhouse should...the colors, tables, bar area and private rooms are all beautifully done and hearken back to Japanese restaurants from the 1960's. The new full sushi bar is quite good and they have decent lunch specials.It seems like every Japane...

I grew up on Long Island, NY. At the time I think every other radio commercial was about Grumman Corp.I was so pleased in the mid-1980s when they decided to move much of their work force to the Space Coast. Years later they merged with Northrop (another huge defense contractor).Monday at 9:30am Governor Rick Scott announced that Northrop-Grumman won the rights to build America's next great bomber here on the Space Coast. The contract is expected to be worth over 100 billion dollars over the life of the project. The project is expected to add about 1800 engineering and program management jobs with incomes in the $100k plus range to our local Space Coast economy. With our real estate market already in great shape, this will only enhance our upward trajectory!

According to socialdailypost.com the criteria for choosing the top 10 cities to retire to in Florida are based on our gorgeous sunshine, warm beaches, golf, outdoor activities and reasonable cost of living. The top 10 cities in Florida are (drum roll please):10. Tallahasse - Not only is Tallahasse the state capital, but has low population density, a major university and the cost of living is very low.9. Kissimme - Kissimme is close to Orlando, so it has many of the benefits the City Beautiful has to offer without being IN Orlando. The cost of living is low, weather is sunny and it is near major attractions such as Disney World and Sea World.8. Ocala -  Located northwest of Orlando, Ocala's cost of living is low and the area is quiet therefore you don't have to deal big city complication...
