Please visit this link to learn about the efforts to bring more bats to the Shore Drive area in Virginia Beach, VA, just outside First Landing State Park.  Our good friend Marty Schuman can be seen at -0:44. http://www.wvec.com/my-city/vabeach/Bat-colony-planned-for-Virginia-Beach-neighborhood-117544193.html   Last Spring I found this very tiny baby bat in my yard. He climbed up and got between 2 chunks of bark on my large Live Oak.  He hooked his claws into the tree, swung upside down, and hung out until dark. Click above to visit our Shore Drive Blog.

With such windy conditions on 19 February, 2011, this was a dangerous situation.  The fire traveled from behind Long Creek Cove Condos, east to Maple Street, then south toward the east end of Marina Shores boat docks. This has happened before but this time the blaze seemed quite substantial. Those Pines are approx. 20-25 feet tall. Fortunately the wind blew the best possible direction to avoid our homes.  The VBFD responded quickly and got the job done.   Saw my old friend Van Rutherford in the middle of the action.  Much thanks to Van and his fellow firemen.

Tyson Bradley You know, it's one thing to brag on yourself, your accomplishments, your car, your house, your listings, your sales, ect...(ad nauseam). Today, however, I felt I should introduce you to one of my close personal friends, Tyson K. Bradley - Team Lead of The Bradley Team at Keller Williams Hilltop in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Years ago, I met Tyson while living in Northern Virginia.  His character and charisma were infectious; and, as a mortgage lender with BB&T Bank at the time, Tyson was one of the largest influential persons to persuade me to consider a career in Real Estate.  Later I would discover that his talent and ability caused him to become one of the top Realtors in Virginia Beach with several millions of dollars in production.  It would only be about a year later...

I have a new camera, Panasonic DMC FZ 100) for xmas but couldn't wait to open it.  It is an upgrade to my FZ 18 but has a new CMOS sensor.  The main thing this sensor does over a CCD type is that it allows for auto focusing during burst modes.  The camera can take 11 FPS at a 14 mpeg size.  Quite a feat.  The other big item especially for me is that now I can mount an aux flash on the camera.  This is important because my add on wide angle lens interfered with the camera flash and left a big shadow.  I am not sure it takes any better pictures then my FZ 18 but I will find out.  It also has a 25 mm lens that goes out to 600 mm.  Here are a few pictures taken with the camera.  Keep in mind these were taken without changing the lens on the camera.  My big thing with the camera is that if y...

Sitting at the heart of the Ocean Front of Va beach is the 12 story condo building at the corner of Winston Salem Ave and Pacific Ave.  Strategically located at Rudee Inlet ... and just 2 blocks off the boardwalk this condo building offers fabulous views of the ocean and Rudee Inlet. Wether you are looking for a second home or permanent condo living lifestyle ... you’ll find the price and location attractive. Recent sales have been as low as $255,000 for a typical 2 bedroom 2 bath condo. That’s a bargain for the location.  North facing condos have 8 views of the north end of the beach and if your up above the 8th floor you get the bonus views of the Atlantic Ocean as well.  South facing condos all have views of Rudee Inlet harbor and above the 7th floor you have great views of the Atlan...

Rentals are a good alternative at Woodbridge Pointe in Virginia Beach ..... take a peak at 961 Jenkins Dr. Va. Beach, Va. 23464 . For those relocating to Virginia Beach,  especially the military,  and they are not sure if they are going to be in Virginia Beach for more than 4 years .... renting can be the best option. You now have a lot of choices when it comes to single family homes for rent.  Inventories are a little on the high side and the monthly rental prices, due to competition, have come down in the past 3 years.  But don’t wait too long ..... demand is high and growing even higher.   With strong demand for rental housing, it doesn’t take long for the shift,  and as inventories drop ...... rental prices go up.  Right now more and more military and other corporate relocation indi...
