Hey Roger. Mary Kay, I feel like I have a little bit of breathing space. You know, we just passed Easter, Passover, we're kind of toward the end of that. Right. End of the breaks and stuff. It's still busy, but not as frenetic. Right, exactly. And today we're in one of my favorite communities behind the Bay Isles gates, Queens Harbour. And what's your favorite about it? I love the way these homes were designed with the high ceilings and all the high windows. So often I come in to show a house in Queens Harbour and I don't feel like I even need to turn a light on. Oh, that's right, a lot of natural light here. A lot of great natural light. I remember back in the beginning this was first developed by a company called Manchester Bay. Right. Well, the community was called Manchester Bay out of Boca Raton. It was the first builder that brought in like the high ceilings. Like of course, we're always used to the Country Club Shores eight-foot ceilings. Right. And then as you would maybe get a house here and there, but no community that really was, not with these big high entrances either. They figured out how to grade up the land so that you only have a couple of stairs coming up to the main landing, and then to come in and get those big high ceilings. And then I think people, you know, even communities of single-family homes back then, we were dealing with people more in condominiums. So what they did was kind of a hybrid here. They did. So it's maintenance-free living, they call it so the outside landscaping is taken care of for you, they paint the houses every five years. Yes, there's some landscaping going on right there in the background. But it's really, it is a nice hybrid so people get the feeling of having their own space in their own domain without having the headaches of it. Right, and you've got a nice variety of home sizes, there's three bedrooms, four bedrooms, five bedrooms. Yeah, that was a good idea. And a lot of people, like this listing that we're in, have added a whole bedroom suite. There was a space kind of above the garage, that you know a couple people found and then a lot of people did, like this seller. Which is a really good idea, to maximize that space. And then these houses, they're 20 years old, right. So like what we're doing in this listing that we're at, is we staged it and we brought it right back up to a kind of current time speeds. And this staging, you know we've talked about it a bunch, it's really becoming something we work on in an older house, or when people take their furniture out, right. Right. Because empty is not pretty. Yeah. So it's a lot prettier when it's staged. Yeah, so be sure to check out this listing online, 3545 Fair Oaks Lane. Thanks so much for joining us on REALTALK™, we'll see you next time.
