South Florida’s unique ecosystem is one that can only be found here in this tropical paradise. Our unique ecosystem includes many of natures gifts such as coral reefs, dunes, marshes, mangroves and of course South Florida’s pristine beaches. Most people that come visit Florida make it a point to make our beaches their number one destination because of their beauty, easy access, and fun attractions that surround these areas. The beaches are a primary attraction to locals; therefore here are three public beaches in close proximity to the Boca Raton / Delray Beach areas that I enjoy visiting.

Who said that the real estate market in Palm Beach County is slow? Most of these people I would guess are sellers who decided to choose a discount real estate company or are not willing to have their home in a marketable condition for what MOST future homebuyers are searching for. There is always the exception where an owner overpaid in the height of the market and just can't financially take a large loss on the sale of their property. With that said, please don't listen to everything that you hear on the streets or from friends, who may not really know what is happening with the current inventory and prices. Below are the June 2012 real estate statistics for Palm Beach County, provided by our friends at RAPB.COM. The Champagne & Parisi Team primarily…
