Price Reduction on Turn Key Home

7 Ocean View is actually one of my favorite listings at the moment and I'm excited to tell you why. This completely concrete three bedroom two bath home was built by one of the premier contractors in the Florida Keys. It has a great covered porch out front where you can enjoy your coffee in the morning and a tasty adult beverage in the evening. When you walk into this over 1,600sqft home you are greeted with a spacious open floor plan and updated everything. Beautiful chocolate cabinites, stainless steel appliances, gorgeous granite counter tops and a beautiful backplash. Take a look around and you will see all of the details that really puts this home above the rest - vaulted ceilings, crown molding, and the trim around the windows (inside and out).

Townhouse in Moon Bay Just Reduced

We have a townhouse in Moon Bay that has just been reduced by $5,000! Just the other day I posted about a different listing in this condominium. You can find it here - Just Listed in Moon Bay . Seems like this is the place to be! This two story unit that has just been reduced is a great little two bedroom one and a half bath with lots of patio space. This particular unit is super close to the pool and one of the bedrooms has bay views! Another great bonus with this townhouse is that it includes a deeded boat slip.

New real estate website for homes for sale in Key Largo and Islamorada

Looking for homes for sale in Key Largo and Islamorada?

key largo and islamorada home search

It's been about 3 years and I have decided it is time for KeysListings.com to evolve into a new platform.  The former site served us well but I feel a fresher and more intuitive user experience for our buyers and sellers will pay dividends.  So, please bear with me as the new site is definitely a work in progress.

The new site is easy to search by island or neighborhood.  Of course, there is an advanced search, search by property address and more.  The searches will be even further customized very soon.

Middle and Lower Florida Keys

My area of real estate expertise is in the Upper Florida Keys where I have lived since 1977.  My office is in Key Largo near mile marker 99 which is quite a drive to Key West where you will find mile marker 0 - the end of US-1.  While I have experience in the Middle and Lower keys, I find that the client is often best served to work with a real estate agent who lives somewhat near their desired market area.

Key Largo and Islamorada specialist

Ultimately, the plan is for this site to be super focused on homes for sale in the Upper Keys.  The search options will be very detailed to be friendly to both our customers and the all-important search engines.  

Looking to buy or sell from Marathon to Key West?

I have relationships with Realtors throughout the Keys.  If you need assistance in the Middle or Lower Keys, let me know as these agents are pre-screened by me and I will match you with the best available.

Users of the former version of KeysListings

If you were a registered user with saved searches in the previous version, please contact me and we'll get you up and running as soon as possible.  This can be with a new customized search of Upper Keys properties that I prepare or perhaps with another specialist if you need help further south.

Thank you for reading and good luck with your Florida Keys home search!
