When you drive around the Isles in Palmer Ranch, it's easy to visualize yourself as one of its many home owners. You would join those that just jogged by, or the group of cyclists heading to Legacy Trail.  If not that, you could certainly get comfortable by the pool with those soaking up the rays.

Selling or buying a home can be a stressful experience. The stress can be compounded when you have a lackadaisical Realtor. So, how do you know if your agent is lazy? Here are 8 signs to look out for.

5. You schedule an…

Snow is beautiful.  Seriously, the way those little flakes gently float down and ever so delicately land is just breathtaking. I appreciate the beauty of snow, I really do...from the comfort of my home in Sarasota, on the flat screen.  What? It's a 60 inch high def, so it's ALMOST  like I'm there. I live here for a reason. That reason is, the cold is so incredibly uncomfortable to me and I am a baby. I cannot even fathom living somewhere where the "winter" months actually involve snow, sleet and hail.   When the temp here drops below 75, I pull out the winter clothing.  Yes, I look silly I'm sure.  Walking down Main Street in a full fur jacket, snow boots and a scarf, but in my defense my other fellow Floridian friends are wearing the same…
