Boca Raton, Fla. – Whether someone is purchasing a main residence, vacation home or other investment property, real estate is often times an individual’s most valuable asset. Much of an individual’s net worth is defined by the real estate they own or have an interest in. As any smart investor will tell you, it’s not enough to own the asset, it must be protected as well; protection from the claims of creditors and the liability that comes with real estate is a necessity.
A novice investor ?may rely solely on? insurance to help protect their real estate investment, however, insurance policies have dollar limits and coverage limitations. As such ...

I currently work in the real estate industry and previously to real estate, I worked in the restaurant business. From my previous and past experiences, I truly know how to appreciate a good vacation, great service, food, real estate and tourism.
Thirty-two of us, most of which grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan just
stayed the entire week in Costa Rica at Barefoot Vacation Villa’s – vacationing and celebrating two special birthdays. There’s nothing better than going on a vacation with childhood friends that we’ve known for 45 years.
We stayed in a 16 bedroom All-Inclusive Costa Rican Villa located in the North Pacific province of Guanacaste, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The views were breathtaking and the sunsets were stunning! Villa Cascada at Barefoot Villas provided us with 5 STAR personal customer services. Guillermo, the property manager took very good care of us ...

My heart is warm and fuzzy, being one of the founders at Florida Platinum Group – RE/MAX Services one goal we had for 2016 was to find a local charity that was near and dear to our hearts to be a part of. My husband, Mark and I were looking for a long time, we wanted to make sure we were both passionate about the charity so that we could volunteer and donate part of our commission from each closing to the charity.
Mark and I never had the opportunity to have kids of our own, and we both love, love, love kids, we knew that the charity we were searching for was going to be involved with kids in some way or another.
A few years ago we were both volunteers at Home Safe in both the Boca Raton and Lake Worth locations. Home Safe is a non-profit organization that provides programs trying to prevent new cases of violence, and protects Palm Beach County and South Florida’s victims of child abu ...

Homeowners who are thinking of selling their personal property often times are scared of an offer with FHA financing. Over the years, FHA loans have been labeled unfairly as the loans people obtain with bad credit, people with no money or both get when trying to buy a home. That is simply untrue. Co-Founder of Florida Platinum Group Mark Stampini states, “FHA loans are great for buyers and now that appraisals are similar to conventional loans, sellers would be crazy not to look at those offers”. FHA may be an option for someone with a lower credit score or little money to put down, it also may be the best deal for any buyer purchasing a primary residence. When a seller sees an FHA offer they should be excited as the buyer is looking to live in their home. They are not an investor making a business decision.”
