Helping Our Veterans

Donations to Homeless Veterans

Just before Christmas we put out a request to our friends and neighbors to collect items for homeless veterans for the holidays. We were overwhelmed with the generous and heartfelt donations and we were able to contribute to 2 different organizations.

People donated gently used and brand new items – blankets, clothing, razors, etc. We even had a hand made blanket in honor of one woman’s grandfather who served in WWII and passed away recently.

Donations to Homeless Veterans

ThDonations to Homeless Veteransank you all for your contributions.

So for 2017, in continued appreciation of our Veterans, we will contribute a $500 credit, at closing, for any Veteran who buys or sells a home with us. This can be used towards a home warranty, home inspection or closing costs.

Choose Joy,

Beverly and John

We helped some very dear clients purchase this brand new home in Bellacina by Casey Key in Nokomis Florida. We are thrilled for them and it was an absolute pleasure working with them again.

It has 2 bedrooms plus a den, 2 1/2 baths and a tandem garage that holds 3 cars. Other great features include a formal dining room, a covered lanai with a casita, a nook off the kitchen and a flexible room. The kitchen opens into a large great room which allows for being part of the group while keeping an eye on what’s happening with food preparation.

Residents of Bellacina by Casey Key will enjoy access to a wide array of private amenities that are part of the company’s signature Esplanade brand. The centerpiece of the gated community will be a beautiful resort amenity center with a planned fitness center, gathering room, catering kitchen and library. Plans for outdoor amenities include a heated lagoon pool and spa, a dog park, lighted bocce and sports courts, a fire pit and a park. A full-time lifestyle manager will be on-site to organize and plan special events and activities for residents.

The location of this new community is particularly appealing. Casey Key Beach is approximately three miles away, with Venice Beach and Siesta Key Beach also nearby. Everything you could want and more is within easy driving distance, including top medical facilities, golf courses, public beach access points, airports, major shopping centers and cultural venues, as well as a variety of retail stores for daily errands.
