It’s all about the appliances baby! They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but whats does that mean when it comes to your kitchen, laundry rooms and household appliances?
Have you been curious about the new luxury condo and residential developments in Downtown Boca Raton? We were too!
Last night the Boca Raton Historical Society organized an amazing trolley tour of all of the new residential developments in Downtown Boca.
What is fantastic about what is happening if you live in Downtown Boca is you can walk to Mizner Park, Royal Palm Place, hit Trader Joes, ride your bike to the parks and beaches, take yoga in Sanborn Square, enjoy the Green Market as well as numerous restaurants, shops and businesses all around the 344 acres called Downtown Boca.
At each trolley stop there was an informative presentation about amenities, unit information, location, availability and pricing as well as refreshments and appetizers.
We visited 101 Via Mizner, Boca City Walk, 327 Royal Palm, Palmetto Promenade and The Residences at Mandarin Oriental.
Thank you to Mary Czar and her team at the Boca Raton Historical Society for a wonderful event! Don’t forget to shop this holiday season at the BRHS gift shop
Since I originally went on this tour in November 2016, The Hyatt Place at the corner of Palmetto Park Road and Federal Highway has opened and the views from the 7th floor pool level are simply stunning! And Louis Bossi is now open! at the street level.
Thinking of moving to Downtown Boca Raton? You are in great company! We can help you upsize, downsize, relocate and more! “One Call Handles it All” when you work with our team!

Coffee Plus #SoooBoca = A Successful Partnership!
I don’t know about you but as a busy Realtor with listings and property showings “coffee” is a main food staple for this gal on the go! Sooo…today’s #SoooBoca’s “Five in the Hive” focus is coffee! Boca is a mecca for small business owners — this city takes pride in buying local and supporting our neighborhood shops. Of course we enjoy the occasional Starbucks or a quick pit stop at Dunkin’ Donuts, but what we really love is the home brewed stuff. The slow roasted, cozy sitting cup of coffee. That being said, today’s ‘Five in the Hive’ is salutes some of our local coffee shops! This will be on ongoing series so no worries…I will but updating and adding more local coffees spots!
First on the list, is the sweet, quaint shop right off of Palmetto Park Road ‘The Seed.’ This spot popped up over night and since its curation has been a hometown favorite! Not only is the coffee toasty and amazing but the atmosphere is what elevates this cafe to the next level. The community tables are great for a large meet up and each seat has access to an outlet! If that doesn’t scream business meeting don’t know what does!
For a more traditional coffee experience stop by ‘Saquellas.’ Located in the heart of downtown Boca this long standing Italian cafe is known for their creamy cappuccinos, lattes and all around smooth coffee. Pair it with any of the bakery items and you are sure to be drifting off into mid-morning heaven. Don’t worry about getting lost in the plaza, just keep an eye out for Saquellas signature red chairs and you will be one sip closer to our favorite iced latte.
If cold brew coffee is on your agenda pop in at ‘Apura’ for an overnight brew that will get your wheels moving. Try the Vanilla Mocha Coffee, you definitely will not feel guilty about this yummy, sweet drink since it is made with all natural ingredients. This stop brews with intention, so you can be sure that anything you consume from Apura will be pure quality.
There is nothing more french than cake and coffee. ‘Cote France Cafe’ is known for their authentic french pastries and steamy cups of caffeine goodness. Much like the sweet avenues of France this cafe is located on a cozy corner in the midst of Royal Palm Plaza — if you blink you may miss it. It is the perfect place for an after lunch pick me up or a feel good sweet.
New kid on the block ‘R1 Coffee,’ is just now making their debut on the coffee scene here in Boca Raton. Check them out over on Federal Highway and see what they are all about. Try a classic espresso or ask to check out their daily coffee menu..yes you read that correctly — DAILY COFFEE MENU. Sip and splurge over Boca’s newest cafe.
Now that you have the buzz on some of Boca’s coffee scene get to sipping some brew and let us know your favorite joint on our Facebook page ‘#Sooo Boca.’ so we can buzz on over and enjoy!

FAQs Answered by the Pros
What steps should I take to prepare my home for sale?
There are several things you need to know before listing your home for sale!
A frequently asked question from home seller’s before listing is what steps should
be taken before listing their home. Not properly preparing a home for sale can
put a home owner at a huge disadvantage.
The expression “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” is absolutely
true when it comes to selling a home. When selling a home you must be sure that
your home presents itself in the best possible light.
Making sure clutter is at a minimum, freshly painting rooms, installing new carpeting,
or ensuring odors are non-existent are just a handful of things that should be done
before listing your home for sale.
Tired of renting? With mortgage ratings going up now is the time to get your ducks
in a row, get a pre-approval and start looking for your dream home or condo!

It is that time of the year and all around the country Spring is upon us! Let the home selling season begin in earnest!
Many people want to make a change before school next Fall or winter next year. Some of my South Florida peeps are looking to upsize to a country club or a waterfront community or downsize to a condo community or assisted living.
Never the less, here are some great tips for everyone in regard to adding value to your home and frankly making it a more pleasant environment in general. I walk into many homes that have simply gotten stale or dated and it feels very heavy and depressing.
We at The Bellisari Real Estate Group can help you with a list of contractors and vendors that we like and use (living here for 38 years helps in that area:) We also work with stagers and interior designers who charge a consulting fee simply to help you stage your home and use furniture and items you already own in your home.
I personally am going to be redoing my office and master bedroom, decluttering, selling some furniture that doesn’t work for me anymore and jumping on Pinterest and Houzz for design and concept ideas. You can follow my Boca House boards if you click on the link.
As a garage sale, thrift store, estate sale enthusiast I enjoy my “flea market” finds to replace and update the look of my home. Some of those finds include mirrored chest of drawers, an acrylic dining room base and table top, white bedroom furniture for my daughters room and the list goes on.
So take a look at this list and see what you might want to do to “increase” the value of your home. Not expensive tips and not to be done necessarily at the same time but you get the idea. Here’s to a happy Spring home selling (or home buying) season! Remember with The Bellisari Real Estate Group “One Call Handles It All” and we are happing to help you with the sale or purchase of your home. We are never to busy for your referrals!
We offer a Free Report on Selling Your Home and a Free Market Value Report if you are thinking of making a move.
