Where is the next “Albert Einstein” coming from?

You have probably never heard the name “Osprey,” Florida, right? Yes, of course, it is the name of a bird, you’re right, but it is also the name of a community in Sarasota County. Why is this even worth mentioning, you may ask? Well, this is the place where  “Pine View School” is located, and  this particular school has just been rated “#1 School in Florida” and  “#6 in the nation.” This may be good news for you if you ever wanted to enjoy the year-round beautiful weather in the Sunshine State without “leaving your kids behind.” Send your kids to Pine View and let them build a solid foundation for their future careers. We don’t know if they will be as famous as the developer of the general theory of relativity one day, but what the heck, why don’t you give it a try? By the way, Osprey is only a stone’s throw away from the best beach in the US….the #1 rated Siesta Key Beach…… Sigh! Another #1 rating…… However, if you are looking for a home within a short distance to  “Pine View School” you will find some really nice neighborhoods in that area. Woodlands at Rivendell is a community with newer homes, like Park Trace and Willowbend. Do you like boating?  Southbay Yacht & Racquet Club might be your choice. They have a harbor where you can park your little 50′ cruiser. For those of you looking for […]

Chestnut Creek consists of 7 subdivisions with approximately 570 homes. Most of them have lake and/or nature preserve view.

Shopping, restaurants and medical facilities are close by; it takes only a few minutes to get to Venice Downtown or to the beaches. The interstate I-75 is also only minutes away. The tree international airports (Sarasota, Tampa and Fort […]

Are you thinking of relocationg to Sarasota,Florida?

Everybody who considered to move to beautiful Sarasota on the West Coast of Florida, but was hesitant, because there was no Trader Joe’s or Costco, you can make the move NOW. Opening day was Friday September 7th. Of course I haven’t been in a Trader Joe’s yet, I was curious about the store and so I went on Saturday. The place was packed with shoppers and lookers alike – I thought they give away food for free. After the dust settles I will be back for sure. Along with last […]
