One of the last undeveloped waterfront parcels of land in Jupiter lies where Jones Creek meets the Southwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River. But that could quickly change is Mattamy Homes receives approval from the town council to build homes there. 

Once home to radio towers that belonged to R&R Broadcasting Company, the land located at 500 Delaware Boulevard is now overgrown and full of wildlife, which is exactly what makes this latest development proposal so tricky. 

As noted in a recent interview featured in the Palm Beach Post, some nearby residents consider the parcel a “true wildlife corridor,” and there are also concerns regarding additional traffic being added to an already dangerous intersection along Indiantown Road should development move

West Palm Beach Condo TowerDespite being taller than what city regulations allow for a site that’s smaller than 1.4 acres, the city commission essentially gave developers the green light to build a new, 24-story luxury condo tower at 1309 S. Flagler Street in West Palm Beach.

According to reports, the vote to initially approve the project was unanimous, although a final vote will still be needed in just a few short weeks. 

If ultimately built, the new 1309 S. Flagler Street condo tower will have just 42 units—only two residences per floor—but still be among the tallest towers in West Palm Beach. 

Two Roads Development and Alpha Blue Ventures are behind the condo proposal, and plans also call for units to have private elevator access, deep wraparound balconies with sweeping

Palm Beach County saw a population surge from July 2017 to July 2018, according to new numbers from the U.S. Census.

And thanks to no state tax and a recent change in federal tax law that now makes it more challenging to deduct income and property taxes in states like New York, New Jersey, and others around the country, it’s certainly possible more and more people will continue opting for the Sunshine State moving forward.

Back around this exact time last year it was reported that Palm Beach County’s population was projected to surpass 1.5 million people in 2018, even though population projections and statistics can be somewhat inaccurate. 

Regardless of the exact figure, however, the low unemployment rate, attractive new tax laws, and of course

Palm Beach Gardens Gated CommunitiesThe Palm Beach area and gated communities go hand-in-hand. Whether you love the extra sense of privacy and security a gated community offers or all the extra lifestyle amenities most provide, the advantages of buying a gated home are far reaching.  

In Palm Beach Gardens, gated homes are especially plentiful, and that can often lead to a much more intense home search. To help narrow down your options, though, we recommend taking a closer look at what we consider a few of the top gated communities in Palm Beach Gardens specifically. 

 The Cove 

The Cove is one of the more private gated communities you’ll find in the area, consisting of just 20 estate homes. All homes for sale in The Cove were built in the late 2000s, offer between 3,000 and around

Why Customer Service in Real Estate Matters Even More Than You ThinkThose who work in real estate don't need to be reminded that customer service is important. They likely see the consequences of poor customer service play out every day. But what they may forget is just how valuable customer service can be to their career as a real estate agent. It can quite literally be the difference between failure and success—which is a powerful statement for such a competitive field.

In for the Long Haul

Most people can put on a mask for a few days with even their worst enemies if they have to, but home buying happens over the course of more than a few days. Unlike a grocery store manager who needs to deal with the odd crisis once in a while, real estate agents need to be on their game every time they interact with a

Sustainable Building MaterialsSustainable building materials have come a long way in a short period of time. Modern homeowners in particular are constantly seeking ways to make their home more sustainable and more eco-friendly.

Solar Panels and Solar Power

Solar energy can be harnessed in multiple ways. Some homeowners use the power of the sun to heat their home by installing large windows on the sides of the home where the sun is likely to shine in. Dark walls on the exterior absorb solar heat, which helps to keep the home warm long after the sun goes down.

Other homeowners choose to harness the power of the sun through solar panels. When sun shines directly on the solar panels, the panels absorb the energy and turn it into electricity. Well-placed solar panels can
