Happy Fall from Mexico Beach Florida

Well, it looks as if the rain is over! We had an absolutely gorgeous weekend!

I do miss the colors of autumn though. The deciduous trees here don't really turn the bright red and yellow and orange here. They pretty much just turn brown and fall off!! I remember taking long drives through Pennsylvania this time of year just to witness the awesome colors of God's creation!

But in Pennsylvania, I couldn't look out my window and see pelicans crash into the water to catch a fish, or see a dolphin glide through the water. Here I just take advantage of those colors as the sun sets over the water (in my shorts and t-shirt!!!!) A little give and take is what it is all about!!!!!

I've been extremely blessed this year! I'm currently ranked the number 2 selling agent in the Mexico Beach/St. Joe Beach area (only about $400,000 shy from being number one!).
My company, Sundance Realty is the top selling company and has been since we opened our doors in 2006.

THANK YOU to all my customers!!!

I wanted to update you on the proposed by pass around Mexico Beach and St. Joe Beach. I just heard that segment 2, which re-routes through traffic behind St. Joe Beach is just waiting on funding. No telling how long that will take to secure but once funded construction, they say, should take about 18 months.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL THING FOR OUR AREA! Hwy 98 will become a local road, taking the tractor trailers off this road. This road was never super busy and was rarely hard to cross to get to the beach, but obviously families with children just never felt comfortable on that side of the road. I believe this will increase the property values of all homes in the area!!!

Segment 3, which re-routes the traffic behind Mexico Beach is about 65-70% complete in design then it will also be ready for funding.

Mexico Beach will have sidewalks pretty much the length of the city by that time so we will become extremely pedestrian friendly. I'm hoping the city will also allow golf carts on that road then as well!

JUST ONE MORE REASON TO BUY NOW !

Noah's Ark Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark. ONE: Don 't miss the boat. TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat! THREE: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark. FOUR: Stay fit. When you're 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big. FIVE: Don 't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done. SIX: Build your future on high ground.. SEVEN: For safety's sake, travel in pairs. EIGHT: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs. NINE: When you're stressed, float awhile.. TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals. ELEVEN: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.
