A friend of mine, Annie listed her house For Sale By Owner but didn't not realize how much work was involved in selling a home. It wasn't too long before she threw in the towel and hired a Realtor. The calls at 9:00pm, the knocks on the door while the family was sitting down for dinner, the numerous questions that she didn't know the answers to, the constant inquiries from investors looking for a "steal". It was all too much. 

 My friend is a busy lady, works full time, and dedicates her free time to her family and the occasional girls night out. She was not happy about how much time was being consumed by trying to sell her own home. We all can understand why you would want to sell a home without a Realtor. You save money.

DWELL Realtors at Painting with a Twist

Let's talk about one of my favorite topics: food. You go into this amazing restaurant. Every single detail, down to the folded linen on the handcrafted table, that sits beside a gorgeous wine glass invites you in. The lights are dimmed just enough.  You are greeted by a server, who is as passionate about food as you are, and just as excited to take a walk with you through the menu. You just know, they are going to paint you a splendid picture (pun intended). But first, let's order a full bodied glass of cabernet. Swish. Sniff. Taste and continue. Now let's take a stroll. Every menu item leaves you salivating. Each item's description is like its own personal fairy tale - I'm trying to make this quick, I promise. While trying to pick the perfect entree…

Take a trip down memory lane in Sarasota, Florida. Take a look at the images and stories around Main Street in downtown. 

Sarasota Main Street 1887

Main Street dead-ended at the Sarasota House, the first hotel in the Sarasota Bay region. Built a year earlier, it remained a hotel until razed in 1924 for a bank building. The two indentical buildings at the end of the street was nearest present day Five Points. Adding a modern touch to downtown Sarasota was a newly built wooden sidewalk.

Gulf Stream Avenue and Main Street 1886

The photo below reveals the fact that the Sarasota Bay area was mainly a fishing village in the nineteenth century. The fishing industry actually dissipated after the boom of 1886-1887, for steamer skippers…
