Ahhh the age old question…do you hold off for between Thanksgiving and New Years to list your Boca Raton house or South Florida condo for sale in order to “get” through the holidays OR do you take advantage of South Florida’s lower inventory levels and less competition for buyers to look at? Here are my thoughts on why you want to list your property now during this time frame!
As we roll into the autumn months and Halloween we pray that the summer humidity will begin to dissipate, it’s the perfect time to start ticking off all the seasonal activities from your checklist! Pumpkin patches, costume parties and of course fall flavored everything. Sit back relax and enjoy the hard cider because we have done all the hard work for you!

As you scroll down you will see we have planned an amazing fundraiser for the Florida Keys.
Let me also wish you a very happy Rosh Hashanah and wishing all who celebrate a sweet New Year filled with love,
health and peace!
I am sending this out today to let you know about a fundraiser that I am part of for our friends that were devastated by
the storm in the Florida Keys.
Our family has great memories spending a ton of time in the Keys and we also have a property in Key Largo.
We luckily had little damage but it was very hit and miss. We had a house guest here from Key Largo and happy to
report his home was in decent shape. The neighbor next door however did not fair as well.
We plan to enjoy many more years in Key Largo and adjoining Keys and know the people there are resilient and strong.
Join us on September 28th at Tim Finnegans from 6 pm – 10 pm in Delray Beach.
This is a benefit concert fundraiser and you can click the link for ticket and donation details.
We are in need of auction items for a ” mystery box” live auction so if you would like to donate something please let me know.

So many choices so little time when it comes to figuring out the perfect Fall wedding color palette for your perfect day…but don’t fret… here are some great ideas to get your wedding color vibes flowing for the perfect shade, tone and feel you are going for!
Deep Berry Tones
Summer berries fit the perfect fall color palette. Whether in a bouquet, on a cake, or placed in an element of an elegant place setting, these deep blues and vibrant reds fashion a cozy edge in a blissful event.
Yellow is the New Nude
Yellow is the new nude. A fall wedding isn’t complete without warm tones emulating that golden hour we all know and adore. A color that spreads among a myriad of shades, this color crafts a seamless look for your beloved ladies standing by your side or even your gorgeous florals!
Out with the pristine and in with the imperfect. Time to ditch the impeccably arranged peonies and roses. Wild flowers are the go for your autumn-inspired wedding. A colorful arrangement of soft washed florals of all shapes and sizes can add that unique element you have been longing for.
Era-themed weddings are IN. From the Victorian ages to the 1970s, your wedding can emulate these trendy times in more ways than you can imagine! From your style choices to your photographer, you can start a wildfire with your vision!
I know what your thinking! Halloween = Scary = Not wedding appropriate. BUT hear me out. Think “dark enchanted elegance” — Dark tones, crystal glasses, romantic florals, black tie ball. This strays far from your “classic elegance” but, if done right, will exceed your expectations of the wedding of your dreams.
So there ya go! No matter what your theme is formulating in that beautiful thought bubble over your head you can find inspiration throughout the seasons and create your very special #SoooBoca wedding designed exclusively by you and for you 💖
