Despite Hurricane Dorian beating a path towards Florida, Friday night at Styr must go on. As has become the custom of our country club, members, friends and neighbors gathered this past Friday evening to enjoy music, dancing and some amazing hors d'oeuvres. Also available was our Tapas menu as well as the regular dining menu for those who sat at the bar or high tops. Our group decided to first spend 45 minutes in Styr socializing and then adjourn to the dining room, "Taste", for another fine dining experience. In "Taste" we enjoyed a quiet evening of conversation while dining on a variety of enjoyable dishes such as Salmon, Chinese Chicken Salad, roasted chicken and hamburgers with all the trimmings, made to order. Chef Peter, once again, made rounds to each table for feedback and suggestions. It was a very pleasant evening, as always.

LET US TICKLE YOUR FUNNY BONE!
Never mind "the birds & the bees" -- there's a newer version:
A little boy
Goes to his father and asks 'Daddy, how was I born?'
The father Answers,
'Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway!
Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo.
Then I Set up a date via e-mail with your Mom
and we met at a cyber-cafe..
We Sneaked into a secluded room, and googled each other.
There your mother Agreed to a download from my hard drive.
As soon as I was ready to upload,
We discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall,
and since it was too Late to hit the delete button,
nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that
A LITTLE CONSTRUCTION NEVER HURT ANYONE!
Things appear to be in their final stages. Everything looks clean and ready to go. All the chaise lounges have been put away in anticipation of the Hurricane gale winds that might be traveling through.
HURRICANE ANTICIPATION !!
This has been the week of "Hurricane Dorian". Everywhere we went there are people preparing, shopping and discussing nothing else but the impending hurricane which everyone starting tracking last Tuesday. We, as realtors, have been busy watching out for all of our listings and arranging for our emergency staff to assist us in bringing in furniture, putting up shutters and just making sure our friends, neighbors and listings are prepared as best as possible for whatever comes our way. By the way, all this needed to be done in a 3 day time period, while also taking care of our own home. It goes to show you, a realtor's job is never ever done.
Many Addison residents had escaped to parts unknown, while others were opening up their generator homes to others. Everyone was sharing and caring for others. Hurricane parties were being planned and food was being prepared while we had the electricity on.
As it turns out, all our fears were not realized as Hurricane Dorian passed us by and stayed far enough away in the Atlantic to give us just a couple of rain bands, a little bit of wind, but nothing like we feared and certainly nothing that different then we often see around 4:00 pm during our rainy season. All clear on Tuesday, our clubhouse reopened on Wednesday. Everything is back to normal.
PICTURES AS THE STORM PROGRESSED
We are all ready for Dorian's visit, if and when it comes!
The hurricane scare was over completely by September 3rd. No damage, no high winds, no floods. Some might think that all this hoopla was propaganda by the media to increase sales in supermarkets, home supply stores, etc. Well, it's always best to take
precautions and stay safe.
Water Stations on the golf course have been put on their backs to prevent damage.
The Clubhouse is closed down.
As are the practice ranges.
Awnings have been removed.
No damage at Addison Reserve !!!
IN FULL SWING AGAIN
We are open and back to business as usual. Last night many members and family dined at "Taste", our main dining room, and enjoyed a comfort food experience that was enjoyed by one and all. Salmon, turkey, roasted chicken and vegetables were all amazing. We were also served a choice of salads, macaroni and cheese,stuffed cabbage, hot dogs, hamburgers and lots of Dana's Delights for dessert, all buffet style. There was something for everyone. It was good to have our club back after a few the worries of Hurricane Dorian. We all missed each other and our life style more than we realized. Anthony, Steve, Sam, Apolis & Katie, all welcomed us with open arms. Our entire staff was great, as usual, and we all appreciated being together. It was a wonderful, friend filled evening.
AND LIFE GOES ON.......

WE HAVE CHILDREN FURNITURE AVAILABLE FOR VISITING BABIES!
As for our Addison Reserve weekly real estate update, we now have 36 homes on the market for sale. Our prices range from $300,000-$3,200,000. There are 27 golf and 9 sports memberships available for sale of which 12 are estate homes and 24 are zero lot line homes. This past week, while preparing our listings for Hurricane Dorian, we are proud to announce that we closed a home at 7839 L'Aquila Way. This 3 bedroom, plus office, golf membership home was asking $435,000, and we brought the buyers. We want to welcome 2 more Canadians to our family here in Addison Reserve, Stewart & Lori Chadnick. The Chadnick's already have friends here in Addison Reserve. They are a lovely couple and will make many more friends over the next few years, welcome. Also, while the hurricane seemed to be baring down on us, we showed quite a few homes to realtors and their clients who were still intent on looking before escaping to their northern homes before the airports closed. All this while preparing for Dorian. Just keep in mind, when you want to get something done, give to a busy person. We are also currently speaking to 2 or 3 Addison residents that are thinking of placing their homes onto the market. Before they list, they gave their permission for us to show their homes. We will announce their listings soon.
This week, for some strange reason, that totally escapes us, after a few showings prior to Saturday, most of our showings were cancelled. We guess we can blame Dorian for that. Airports were closed and those that were on the move were mostly flying out, not into our Florida area. This too passed and we are back to our normally busy schedule showing our buyers homes and showing our listings daily.
If you would like to see any of the above mentioned homes, or any home here in Beautiful Addison Reserve, please call us. We work 24/7 just to guarantee your satisfaction. We will show you ALL the appropriate listings that fit your criteria! We feel that you are more than just a transaction. We value our relationships!

Please call us at 561-702-7828, we believe our clients deserve the best, and we intend on giving them just that. We know our market. We promise our uncompromised commitment!
