Get Expert Help Finding Your Perfect Lot!

New Home Construction SWFL

As a Florida Real Estate Agent I always strive to go above and beyond to help my clients in all their real estate needs. Part of what I offer is assistance with buyers that are looking to purchase a lot to build upon. Being a long time resident of Southwest Florida has helped me create good connections with the best, quality home builders in the area. I also am very familiar with the area, roads, schools and shopping locations to help buying find just the right piece of land that meets all of their personal needs and requirements. If you’re looking to purchase a lot to build on, please give me a call at 239-425-2503 and let’s talk about how I can help!

SWFL Lots for SaleBuilders’ bonus: Weak competition from ‘newer’ homes

WASHINGTON – May 27, 2014 – A burst of new-home sales during the previous housing boom stirred up competition among U.S. home builders. After the bubble burst, there was a surplus of fairly new resale homes, which exacerbated builders’ problems: They not only faced lower buyer demand thanks to the recession, but still-interested buyers could get an almost-new home at a bargain foreclosure price.

These nearly new homes boasted modern design, landscaping and interior upgrades, low maintenance requirements, and lower prices – factors that posed formidable competitive challenges for builders.

Now, however, the new home market appears to be swinging in the opposite direction. Almost-new homes – one that would have been built during the height of the recession – are in short supply.

Buyers longing for new homes now must rely on builders since fewer enter the resale market.

The change, in some areas, has put home builders back in the driver’s seat in satisfying new buyer demand.

Six Figures is a true story about six professional business women who supported each other and collaborated to make important changes possible for one another, both personally and professionally. It is a story with a compelling message that friendship really matters to women…. and it matters a lot. Through their interactions, the six women in this book weathered difficult transitions, gathered wisdom, and developed enduring relationships that, when shared, made each woman stronger than she could ever have been on her own.

The women are planning a series of retreats for women based on the fundamentals shared in the stories of this book.

These workshops will have structured exercises that will enable participants to see the best in themselves and in others as well as develop the necessary skills to communicate, inspire and empower each other to overcome their greatest challenges and find success in life.

Book Description

Six Figures is one of those rare books that grabs a hold of you from deep within and doesn’t let you go until the last page. Even then, you’re left with the incredible craving for more… more real life stories of love, friendship, laughter, learning, tears and inspiration. Meet an amazing group of professional women – “Bad Girls” – Barbara, Lauri, Lee, Susan, Gina and Nicki – who were on a quest for a successful career, a better life and deeper relationships, all from different states, backgrounds and age groups who come together in an “accidental” meeting at a business conference in Minnesota.  Take a trip with them down memory lane as they each take turns retelling their version of the blossoming of a wonderful friendship that has weathered the years of life’s greatest up’s, downs and in-betweens. Prepare to find yourself laughing out loud and reaching for the Kleenex box while rethinking your own life and searching to reconnect with your long-lost girlfriends! This is truly an inspiring real story about six women on a journey to find success, themselves and each other in the process! Definitely a MUST READ!

Book Purpose

We are SIX PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS WOMEN who are on a mission to inspire, empower and unite women of all walks of life. Our goal is to help eliminate limiting beliefs that hold women back from reaching their goals. Our dream is to inspire women to take positive action and reach their full potential while giving themselves permission to reach out to others for help and support. We believe that women can accomplish so much more if they have the love, support and encouragement of their girlfriends and allow themselves to release any beliefs that impede success. We all have greatness within us; we just need someone to help us see how truly great we all are! – Barbara, Lauri, Lee, Susan, Gina and Nicki

Book Review

“Six Figures left me wishing I was number seven in their amazing group of girlfriends on a quest for a successful career, a better life and deeper relationships. I found myself picking up the phone to dial old friends and reconnecting with my girls and finding my own support and power team. These women inspired me to take my career to the next level, be true to myself, reach out to my friends, have more fun and experience life in greater fashion!”

What’s Buggin’ You Lately?

MGS Designz is all about sharing the good stuff! Lately we’ve been showcasing our clients blogs on our blog – just so you can see who are clients are and also see samples of our work.  Today we’re going to share a great blog post from Lenny Volberg from Lenny’s Pest Control! We help Lenny put together his blog and newsletter every month and we very much enjoy working with him. Please read on and feel free to contact us for more information!

Holiday Bugs are Happy Bugs!

So are YOU ready for Thanksgiving this year? Where did the days go? I can’t believe it’s that time of the year again! This Holiday is a favorite in our home! We love the family, fun, friends and the freedom to eat a little more of the good stuff without any of the guilt. I read a post recently on facebook that said “Holiday Calories Don’t Count!” I chuckled a little before I responded “Yeah, wouldn’t that be the perfect Holiday gift?!”

So, are you planning a fabulous family get together with all the relatives over for turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie and all the fixings? Is everyone invited? Even the bugs? Did you do know that Holiday Bugs are the happiest bugs in the world? Do you know why? Guess! Maybe it’s because they get lots of yummy sticky, gooey, ooey, sweet stuff everywhere! This is the time of year when the leftovers can’t fit in the fridge so they get left over on the counter over night! It’s when your lovely nieces and nephews leave sticky handprints all over places you didn’t even know they could reach! And it’s when your neighbor drops by to say hi and her not so cute kids leave cookie crumbs all over the floor, the couch, the counter and who knows where else! Oh them kitchen critters just love this time of year!

We just came out of a pretty wet rainy season and if you haven’t called me to come visit you yet you just might have a nice collection of bugs hidden in those secret hiding places in your kitchen, pantry, laundry, bathroom and anywhere else they find comfy enough. Those pantry bugs just love to get into your flour, pasta, cereal and spices. Those suckers reproduce faster than you can blink and if you have one you better bet you have a good fifty or more! The last thing you need is crazy aunt Rita screaming and carrying on like it’s the end o the world in front of all the family while nearly giving grandma a heart attack all because she found bugs in the flour when she went to make the biscuits!

You have Thanksgiving next week and Christmas shortly after that with New Years on their trail and each event is more food and happier bugs. Now we’re all for happy and have nothing against bugs but we really like making our clients happy and keeping the bugs out of their living space so holiday life can be a little more enjoyable. So right about now is the PERFECT time to call Lenny’s Pest Control so we can come by and spray your place just to make sure all your guests are the ones you really invited this year!

We want to take this time to say THANK YOU for reading our blogs, liking us on facebook, following us on twitter and connecting with us on linkedin. Please subscribe to our newsletter if you haven’t already done so. We also appreciate our many loyal clients for all their years of patronage and we wish you and everyone a Very Happy Thanksgiving Holiday season!

Battery Fundamentals from Battery Giant SWFL

MGS Designz is all about sharing the good business advice and inspiring you to become GREAT at what you do! Today we’re going to share another great blog post from Brittany King with Battery Giant of SWFL! We help Brittany put together her blog and newsletter every month and we very much enjoy working with her. Please read on and feel free to contact us for more information!

Wow – where has the time gone! We have been pretty busy serving our customers here at Battery Giant in Cape Coral, and the holidays are sneaking up on us. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, which will kick off the holiday season. And since we’re on the subject of giving thanks, we would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for your patronage and loyalty. Thanks for taking the time to connect with us, read our blog and for making Battery Giant of SWFL you favorite place to go for batteries!

In anticipation of the holidays, we’re going to be getting some cool battery related products in which will make fantastic gifts for the folks on your list. I’ll provide a couple of examples before I go into more battery fundamentals.

For example, for the holidays, we have stocked up on some really sweet LED flashlights that are incredibly powerful and bright. And for those of you who have four-legged friends, we’re also getting some awesome LED collars so you can see – and your friend can be seen – at night. Come on in and check them out – we think you’ll love them. We have lots of awesome stocking stuffers that your family, friends and employees will absolutely love!

Enough of the commercials – lets get back to battery fundamentals. Last week, I spent some time to explain three of the basic types of batteries that customers need. In today’s blog, I’ll cover off four others, which make up the balance of the market for replacement batteries.

As before, I’m going to take advantage of materials provided by our Battery Giant headquarters operation to provide the content I’ll use.

  • Nickel – metal – hydride (NiMH): these types of batteries have a higher energy density compared to Nickel Cadmium. However, they have a reduced cycle life compared to NiCd. The other good news is there is relatively little toxic metal in NiMH batteries, but please bring them to us for responsible recycling anyhow. Popular applications for NiMH include cordless phones, rechargeable batteries, and older generations of cellular phones.
  • Alkaline: Alkaline batteries are one of the most popular consumer batteries. They are available in a number of different sizes – the most popular are AA, AAA, C and D. They have high energy density, long shelf life, superior leakage resistance, and lower internal resistance that allow it to operate at higher discharge rates over a wide range of temperatures. Popular applications include radios, watches, toys and numerous other household applications.
  • Lithium Phosphate:Lithium Phosphate batteries have high energy density by weight and volume, safety (high resistance to thermal runaway), and high current or peak power rating. Typical applications include power tools, solar lighting, and a broad range of medical devices such as oxygen concentrators, defibrillators and EMS equipment.
  • Lithium Polymer: Lithium Polymer batteries provide higher volumetric energy density. Beyond this benefit, the primary advantage for manufacturers of consumer devices such as iPods and cell phones is that Lithium Polymer provides great flexibility in cell size, shape and weight. Lithium Polymer also provides superior stability in over-voltage and high temperature conditions.

Finally, I wanted to let you know we’re preparing our first email newsletter, so for those of you who have given us your email addresses, expect to see our newsletter in your inbox in the near future. Don’t delete it – it will have a valuable coupon for you to use on your next visit to us! If you would like to subscribe now – click here!
