TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – June 2, 2014 – The 2014 Hurricane Season began yesterday and runs for the next six months – until Nov. 30."Now is the time to prepare your family for Hurricane Season," says Florida Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. "Prior to a disaster, create an emergency plan for your family and pets, identify locations of special needs shelters and prepare an emergency supply kit with first aid, healthy meals and water. "Recently Governor Rick Scott signed House Bill 5601 that creates a nine-day sales tax holiday for hurricane supplies, which started Saturday and runs through Sunday, June 8. Floridians will be able to purchase items such as flashlights, batteries, weather radios and other essential items. An emergency supply kit should include healthy, nonperishable foods and supplies that meet a family's and pet's health and medical needs. Under a federally declared emergency, residents can get an extra 30-day prescription supply with no price increase, even for recently filled prescriptions. Talk with a health care provider and pharmacist about emergency medication supplies. Other items to include in an emergency supply kit

I enjoy walking the warm sandy beaches, swimming and watching the magnificent sunsets on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Thirty years ago I came from Michigan to the Sarasota area to enjoy the beaches of the Sunshine State. The “Beach Communities” Longboat Key, Lido Key, Siesta Key and Casey Key are what draw everyone to make Sarasota their home!
Sarasota the “Cultural Capital” of Florida attracts homeowners that want more than just a beach experience. Sarasota and Manatee communities with the growth of new housing maintain their elegant but laid back style. It is a great place to make it your home to be able to enjoy lush natural environment and the amenities of a modern city.
I became a home owne r in Lakewood Ranch an award winning 17,500 acre site that provides a beautiful master planned, maintained and golf community. Get the picture: blue waters, white sand, plenty of sun, blue skies, fabulous food, casual outdoor dining, amazing fishing, play golf, boat races, music and art festivals….
My focus is to best understand the goals and visions of my clients, ensuring all decisions are made with a wealth of information and the necessary tools for a successful, rewarding experience.
I have found my “Slice of Heaven” I look forward to you finding yours!
