    Coffee Boca

     

    Boca is a mecca for small business owners — this city takes pride in buying local and supporting our neighborhood shops. We love to check out different spots to share with our followers.

    #SoooBoca Beaches Are Fabulous!

    (This shot is from a Boca Beach cam…you can check in, watch the waves and take a break from work from afar just click here 

    Summer time, summer time, sum sum summertime is here baby!

    It is time to breath a bit and hit the beaches and boy do we have amazing beaches in #bocaraton.

    I grew up hanging out at Red Rocks (now Red Reef) and still am amazed at the beauty of our local Boca beaches.

    From Spanish River Park to Red Reef to the Palmetto Pavilion and county run (yup) South Beach Inlet at Camino Real there are many choices for diving, snorkeling, fishing, boating and of course simply relaxing and building your dream home ie. the sandcastle. There is even a dog friendly beach up at Spanish River Park!

    Intertwined with parks that have space to BBQ with picnic tables and playgrounds you can simply take a drive up A1A and pick from a variety of lovely beaches! We are so lucky that the city had the infinite wisdom to protect our miles of beaches here for future generational enjoyment.

    We love to go to the beaches no matter what time of year it is. There’s are the surfers, the sailers, the coffee drinkers and the bikers all overlapping and converging on our beautiful beaches. At anytime you can find solace at the beach with the lure of the Atlantic Ocean at your feet. The calm sound of the waves draws you in as you gaze out to the horizon watching birds, fish jump and fishing boats heading out to fish or coming home for the day.

    Prince Estate & Legacy

    Prince Estate

    WHAT IS YOUR BOCA RATON HOME WORTH NOW??

    As a student at University of Florida in the 80’s, yes I am dating myself…I loved Prince, Purple Rain and his amazing music like 1999 and Let’s Go Crazy! It is very sad for us who enjoyed and partied thru the 80’s and those folks that really embraced his cool and iconic style. Started with nothing and was like a shooting star…didn’t let life’s circumstances hold him back! He accumulated an amazing estate and left behind an incredible legacy!

    As a Realtor that specializes working with inherited properties and the heirs who have to deal with the contents and the real property I am curious what is going to happen with Prince’s estate…what kind of estate planning did he do as he was clearly a meticulous performer and human being. He is not married and has no children so it will be interesting to see who he has appointed to handle his estate and who his designated heirs and charities will be. Many performers and friends have spoken of his giving and charitable heart in life, so in the after life Prince will probably keep on giving.

    The other interesting piece to me is obviously the location of this property…I suspect in his will and I could be wrong, that Paisley Park will be turned into something like Graceland…it is a unique property in the middle of Minnesota.

    Then I think who might be a purchaser of this type of property if it were to be sold?  There is a home for every buyer and a buyer for every home. The recording studio is state of the art so perhaps a music icon? Problem I see is location, location, location…it’s in Minnesota… not exactly on the beaten path of the music industry and without Prince actually “in the house” what kind of draw is that?

    So we wait and see…to be continued…

    Dearly beloved
    We are gathered here today
    To get through this thing called life

    Electric word life
    It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
    But I’m here to tell you
    There’s something else
    The afterworld

    A world of never-ending happiness
    You can always see the sun, day or night
