    Just wanted to start out with an email I got last week.   I love getting emails like this!

    “” Very good morning to you Mary.  Just wanted to update you on things this week.
     Our daughter, her husband and children are at our condo, Waterside 408, in MB
    this week for the 4 th .  Both my son-in-law, Rodney and grandson, Harrison
    again participated in the Beach Blast run.  My grandson finished 1 st in the “14
    and under” age bracket while his father finished 2 nd overall.  This year my 9
    year old granddaughter ran finishing the race in 32 minutes 30 seconds.  Her
    first time to run.  My daughter was a walker since she broke her toe over the
    My son, his wife and 3 girls will be in MB in a
    couple of weeks.  Both my son, my daughter, their spouses and all the
    grandchildren  now have a love for MB as we do.  Best thing Bill and I ever did
    was purchase a condo at Waterside. 
    Thanks again for everything,”
    This was an unusual 4th of July!    IT RAINED ALL WEEK!   Copious amounts of rain, torrential downpours.  It was ridiculous!     The city did manage to get off the fireworks a day late but……..better late than never!    And it was a great show and I know after a week of rain……those fireworks were soooo appreciated by the visitors!



    Stop by and see Chris at the new bike shop in Port St Joe.   It’s on the corner of 2nd and Reid Ave right in the heart of downtown!   He has new bikes and bike accessories + he repairs bikes!!!    This is a much needed service!!!

    Phone #  850-229-2575   Open M-F 10-6pm and Saturday 10-5pm (eastern)


    As for real estate…………………all I can say is BUSY!   CRAZY BUSY!

    Ten properties put under contract in the last 8 days in Mexico Beach…….and I know I have 3 more offers out there today waiting for responses!!!!     Click here to see what people are buying in Mexico Beach to Windmark Beach.

    Click here to see what we’ve closed on so far in July. 

    It’s been equally busy out at the Cape.   Ten properties put under contract.  Click here.


    Interest rates are definitely on the rise.   Prices are ticking up a tiny bit and the inventory is still low.   Great time to buy!

    Below is an IMMACULATE HOME!

    411 front smIt’s a 4 bedroom, living room + den, screen porch, 2 car garage.  A lot of people won’t consider this home for a vacation property but……..its a 1/2 mile to the beach, a 10 minute walk, a 5 minute golf cart ride………Just far enough away to avoid the noise of Hwy 98.  Just far enough away to have a little more privacy.  Just far enough away that the salt spray doesn’t corrode every metal object including the AC compressor every few years.    SO, if you are looking for a beautiful, move in ready home, whether it will just be a vacation retreat or a permanent residence, I think this is the best buy on the market right now.   Click here for more information!


    I will be out of town July 18-22.    Going back to my home town of Erie Pennsylvania for a family reunion!   Can’t wait to see everybody!    I will still have my phone and Ipad and can do everything except show property so please don’t hesitate to call me during that time!!!

    Have a great week!  Mary  850-896-5222
