Boca Grande and Gasparilla Island News for February 1, 2011

The past month has been full of opportunity. As the District 13 Advisory Board representative for the Florida Young Professionals Network, I had the chance to speak about educating young agents and traded information with a great group of real estate professionals in Orlando. In January I also attended a full day seminar where I was motivated by speakers such as Laura Bush, Colin Powell, Lou Holtz, and Rudy Giuliani. It was a great way to kick off the year and prepare for the busy season ahead.

On the real estate front, our office has seen an increase in activity certain to result in a healthy first quarter sales sheet. I have shown property nearly every day for the past week, and am happy to report that you will see several sales pending on my list.
