Locks of Love - West Palm Beach Florida - Donating Hair to Help ChildrenLocks of Love became near and dear to my heart a few years ago when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Like most cancer patients she lost all of her hair, but unlike most cancer patients my mom shaved her head the minute her hair started to fall out.  I thought it was such a brave thing to do and couldn't imagine how much strength it took.The first time I saw my mom's bald head I offered to give her my hair.  My mom laughed at me like she always does and told me I could keep my hair.   In my offended voice I said "fine if you don't want it I'll give it to someone who does" and that's exactly what I did.I decided to donate my hair to Locks of Love, which is a Non-Profit Organization that provides hairpieces to...

Lexus of Palm Beach Service Department Blows the Competition Away - Thank You Charlie DaoI'm blogging from Lexus of Palm Beach!!! Over the years my husband and I have owned several different vehicles from many manufactures: Honda, Ford, SAAB, Jeep, BMW along with a few more.When it comes to servicing our vehicles I've had horrible service, adequate service and great service. It wasn't until I purchased my Lexus from Lexus of Palm Beach that I received fabulous service.My Service Representative, Charlie Dao, always gets me in and out of Lexus fast. Although I don't mind sticking around since Lexus of Palm Beach, in my opinion, is a five star dealership. They have Wi-Fi, so I can bring my laptop, like I did today and work. The only problem I have is deciding where my "office" is going to ...

EG2 - Educational Gallery Group at CityPlace in West Palm Beach Florida Back in May 2009 my son, Aidan, who was in kindergarten at the time received a plain jane letter home stating a piece of his artwork would be displayed at Eg². As with every letter sent home I posted it on the refrigerator and didn't give it another thought until we approached the "Opening" night. My husband and I didn't know what this "Opening" was about, we never heard of Eg² and assumed art from Aidan's entire school would be on display. Our family didn't have anything planned that night, so we decided to drive downtown and stop by.The gallery was located in Downtown West Palm Beach at CityPlace, which has a beautiful outside mall type atmosphere with shops, restaurants and entertainment. We found parking, plunke...

West Palm Beach became one of the fastest grown cities in FL in mid 90's, when the city decided to build an amazing multi-million dollar development called City Place. Because of its convenient location and unique style, City Place was ranked as the #1 destination in Palm Beach County, FL. It is just a mile away from the intra-coastal and 3 miles west from the legendary Palm Beach island with its world-renown beaches. Downtown and City Place are also a few minutes from I-95 and Palm Beach International Airport. City of West Palm Beach offers a free trolley service going to and from the Clematis Street District, another popular area downtown West Palm Beach.  "Live here, Play here" has become a well known motto of City Place, an exquisite half-billion dollar development in Downtown West ...

I run some statistics each Monday.  One of them is the inventory of housing units (all types - but they are mostly single family) in the Intracoastal section of West Palm Beach, Florida, Palm Beach County, south of Okeechobee Blvd. down to the town of Lake Worth and east of I-95.  This morning's total came at 435.  I flipped back through my chart to this time last year and the number was ..... 538.  That's a 19+% drop.  "They" said we had a 5 year supply of inventory - and this would reduce it to four years - but there is always a supply of inventory; never ZERO.  So, Hey, we are headed in the right direction!

The real estate market has evolved tremendously from its beginnings as a market that required people to actually do some legwork and walk around neighborhoods or purchase market related publications in order to find real estate like Palm Beach condos for sale. Nowadays the real estate landscape relies heavily on technology, particularly the internet. There is no shortage of real estate websites on the internet that allow first time buyers to explore tons of listings without having to leave their home and tweak their search options as necessary to search only for Palm Beach condos or single family homes, for example. Internet listings also allow virtual walkthroughs, a huge advantage if a buyer doesn’t live in the same state. Being able to see who or what company is selling a home is gr...

South Florida, West Palm Beach .....most of 2007 I played with my cooking recipes .... most of 2008 I lived off rentals and withdrew from savings, withdrew, withdrew.... There were NO files in the "pending" section of my file drawer.  Any agent who said (s)he was doing well was lying. Suddenly I have two of my listings under contract, two buyer sales awaiting closing, another good offer coming in on another listing, and a rental listing almost rented.  How wonderful!

I've mentioned before that when any house under $100,000 comes up in my immediate area, I immediately go and see it - that way I can find the diamonds in the mess of the foreclosures and short sales to recommend quickly to buyers. I've been doing this for one month - and taking stock today, I learn that HALF of what's out there has already gone under contract.  The greatest percentage of those under contract are at the lower end of that group, but boy do they disappear quickly.  You need a score card these days to keep tabs!

There are more than 500 homes for sale in the vast area of West Palm Beach called the Acreage where property averages an acre or more and homes are as varied as their owners. Prices for a traditional three bedroom, two bath home can start in the mid $100,000's, but those probably need some work.  But you can find a wonderful 3/2 on over an acre with a pool that is ready to occupy in the mid $200,000's Of the more than 500 properties on the market in the Acreage, about 350 are listed as short sales -- that is where the owner owe more to the bank than the property is worth today.  And there are some fantastic buys out there for the first time home buyer who may also be eligible for an $8000 tax credit or stipend from the government following the purchase. The Weiss-Clawson Team works with...

I have a listing. Selling agent has an FHA buyer. Contract signed. All okay. Loan in process.  I get an e-mail....... ....from the loan processor to the selling agent who forwarded to ME ---- they want a copy of MY driver's license so that they can ascertain that I AM NOT ON THE FHA WATCH LIST! The WHAT?  17 years in the business.  Hadn't done FHA deals in years.  Remember that I thought it unusual (but not much brain thought beyond that) that agents had to sign the FHA addendum to the contract...... WELL!  Yes, I had to produce my driver's license to National City (the lender) here in South Florida, Palm Beach County, West Palm Beach ...... so that they could ascertain whether I have been involved in any previous fraudulent deals! While it's momentarily off-putting --- it's ABOUT TIME ...
