The Sarasota Florida real estate market is enriched by properties like The Oaks Club, a 1000-acre property development with deep roots in the Sarasota County.

  Every coastal town has one of those places where the boaters can tie up their boats and come in their t-shirts and flip-flops for a great bite to eat.  Along the Gulf Coast in Osprey that place is Spanish Pointe Pub & Marina.  Located right on Little Sarasota Bay, just south of Historic Spanish Point, the Spanish Pointe Pub is a popular, laid-back eatery known by the locals for its delicious grouper sandwiches and cold beverages.  Order at the outside window and sit at one of the many picnic tables adorned with red and blue umbrellas.  Don't expect white linens and fancy silverware here as plastic baskets and utensils is the norm to serve up some of the best pub food on the water.   Mushroom burgers, hot dogs, French fries, and cold beers are just some of the menu items to try out wh...

Casey Key is laden with hidden treasures; gems of nature and community that makes this island truly home. Residents don't even seem to mind that the Blackburn Point swing bridge is out for repairs; it gives everyone a chance to drive the isle from tip to top-eight miles of beauty and neighbors; yards in full bloom; palm trees reminding us of the tropical delight that is Casey Key, Florida. Just the other day, I took a guest for a joyride from one end of the island to the other. The sun was shining; breezes blowing; and Casey Key was looking her finest.  Since the bridge was out, we turned the convertible around in the parking lot of the Casey Key Library. I'd never been inside before, so on a spur-of-the-moment impulse, we ventured in. Neighbor and volunteer librarian Connie Davis was ...

About 30-45 minutes north of Port Charlotte, in Osprey FL, there is a very nice park - Oscar Scherer Park.  To let you know a little about it: You can volunteer for a day, a week, or more and can participate in natural resource management and special events at Oscar Scherer State Park. Check out the Volunteer Information page. It's summer, so when visiting the park be sure to be prepared for the hot, humid, and rainy weather patterns we have been experiencing. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen so you can enjoy your visit and the memory of the time spent outdoors. Don't forget water for your pets too! Early morning and late afternoon are the best times to enjoy the park for wildlife viewing. You can see many changes in the landscape after the burn season.  The park is actively involve...

Okay, it happened.  In a previous post, I asked for help in convincing a seller NOT to allow the buyer in before closing on her Sarasota Florida home and I want to thank you all for your comments.Do you think the Seller listened?  Instead, she not only let them in her garage, but allowed them to put their things inside the house.  I documented everything and sent her in writing my stance on the matter.Here's what happened.  Day of closing, the buyer walked.  Since all contingencies were met including a loan commitment, he released the $30,000 escrow deposit and requested that the entire amount be paid directly to the Seller.  I agreed, even though there was a 50/50 split in the listing agreement.  We renegotiated the agreement so that the Seller extended her listing with me for an addit...
