I am seeing solid steady improvement in the real estate market. I much prefer steady improvement over the roller coaster ride we have been on for many years.
The June 2015 Northeast Florida Association of Realtors (NEFAR) market stats show steady improvement in pricing, closings and pending sales.

The median sales price is $183,590 and show similar year to date increases of 4% in 2014 and 8% in 2015. (more…)

I have one poem published called “Solitaire.” It was published in the “National Anthology of Poetry.” I wrote a children’s book called “Pimple the Pelican” for my grandson and self-published that. My dream is to get my novel published. I am now in the revision process of it. I finished it about a year ago and pitched it to ten agents. I was so excited when I received a response from Sue Grafton’s agent requesting to read my full manuscript. After five days of nail-biting suspense, she told me she couldn’t connect with my main character. She gave me some great advice though, and I have heeded it.
