The City of West Palm Beach (Historic Preservation Division) is taking a pro-active approach to what historic districts all over the country are wrestling with - Houses built up to 1958 have now reached that historic age threshold of 50 years.  At first glance, most folks doesn't give homes of this time period much thought - most are simple boxes with straight-forward unadorned facades.  But this time period is an extremely important one in our country's history. WWII is over, prosperity returning, veterans coming home, getting married, having families.  It was a simple and happy time.  So, even though these homes are anything but glamorous, they represent a significant period of time all over our country.  West Palm Beach is beginning steps to include this time period by making these h...

Hi Everyone- My name is Ellie Drury, and I am an active realtor in the West Palm Beach, Florida area. I dropped out of college to go into real estate a long time ago. I've tried a few other things, but have been back in real estate now since 2001. Most of the time it feels so natural that it doesn't even feel like work. There is never a shortage of people who want to live here, and I enjoy helping newcomers feel at home while showing off this place I love. Real Estate is a great way to make friends! Since the start-up of AR members have been saying, 'Why don't you belong?'. Well, I guess there were two main reasons:  my goal to keep my life simple and unencumbered with unnecessary things, and also that I really didn't quite 'get it'. Finally the members got through to me that it was mor...

I haven't blogged very much in the past few days because I have been so focused on making a big sale in downtown West Palm Beach. I have been working with a couple from New York City who are on the verge of retirement. We have been monitoring the market for a couple of months and whenever something they were interested in came up (or got reduced to their price range) I would stop by on the way up to my fiance's house and make a virtual tour for them. Once they had more than one or two that they really liked they booked a flight to Florida. I showed them five properties on Saturday and then we went back and looked at their favorite on Monday. We wrote up an offer that afternoon and after some serious negotiating got an acceptance on Wednesday afternoon.Fortunately my fiance and I had tic...

Do the ZooThe Palm Beach Zoo If you are lucky enough to find yourself in South Florida (Palm Beach County) make sure you leave yourself time for the Palm Beach Zoo.  Sure Miami has Metro Zoo, (over an hour drive South) but Palm Beach County has its own Zoo right here in the heart of West Palm Beach.                      I believe this Zoo is one of the Jewels of the Palm Beaches.  It is smaller than the big ones but still has plenty to see and do without all the crowds. Plenty of shows for the little ones...ok big ones as well.The Zoo is open 363 days a year from 9Am to 5pm daily.  The show has shows running throughout the day. Recently, the Zoo has had some changes done so if you have not been their in awhile I recommend it is time for trip back.  Palm Beach Zoo even has a Carousel rid...

Being a seasoned real estate agent ,in this market, has really made me take a good hard look at what the future holds.   Maintain a lifestyle, which I have become accustomed to, has definitely been a challenge, to say the least. So when I was approached by a fellow Realtor, who gave me information on a way that I could supplement my revenue, without effecting my current income stream, I was willing to listen.  In fact, it helped my Real Estate business, helped me maintain my lifestyle AND generated residual income.Multi Level Marketing is on the rise, and being endorsed by millionaire powerhouses, such as Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump.  Further more, recent Fortune magazine story put it, "Forget the paycheck; your W-2 days are over. It's a 1099 world now."A distinguished economist an...
