Dear Friends,


Time to enjoy! Everyone thinks of July as a time to get together with friends and family - as summer unfolds, many people make plans for special gatherings. The more people gather, the more they talk. Eventually, they often wind up talking about where the real estate market is today, and where it is likely heading. If you would like to know more about how things are shaping up for the summer and fall markets, just give me a call. You never know when the next real estate opportunity will present itself. If you have any family or friends who need some expert real estate advice, please don't hesitate to have them call me. I'm here to help.


Being from Boston, the Boston Pops on the Commons is always a favorite - now that we're in Punta Gorda paradise - being on the water is a must and the fireworks are everywhere!  Wherever you find yourself, remember that July is National Hot Dog, Blueberry and Ice Cream month! 


And be safe!

10 Things a Burglar Doesn't Want You to Know

Successful burglars have lots in common - home owners who unwittingly give invitations to robbery. Here's how thieves thank you for your generosity.

In these thank-you notes, your friendly neighborhood burglars share advice on how to stop lending them a helping hand.

Loved your trash

Can't tell you how much fun I have driving around neighborhoods on trash day (especially after big gift holidays) when the empty boxes on the curb reveal what wonderful new toys you have. Your thoughtfulness made it possible for me to land a new laptop and a flat-screen television in one easy trip to your home!

Next time, break down the boxes and conceal them in the recycling or trash bins.


Getting carried away

Many thanks for putting your valuables into an easy-to-carry safe that I could carry right out your back door. (Nice jewelry, and thank you for the cash!)

You may want to invest in a wall safe, which I rarely attempt to open. Or, rent a lock box at your bank.


Dear BFF

Thanks for alerting a professional acquaintance of mine via your social network that you were away for the week in Puerto Vallarta, having the time of your life. Me? I enjoyed a very relaxing visit to your home with no pressure of being caught.

If only you had known that posting comments and photos of your trip on social networks is fine - but do that after you return so you won't broadcast your absence!


Su casa es mi casa!

I was sincerely relieved to find your  back door  was a plain wood-panel door. I had no trouble kicking it in (my knees appreciate how easy that was!) Imagine how silly I felt when I discovered that your windows weren't locked anyway.

You may want to take a cue from your neighbor and install steel-wrapped  exterior doors  with deadbolts on all your entries. And be sure your windows are locked when you're away.
