Good morning Roger. Good hot, morning. Good very hot morning, summer has arrived. It is. It's not just up north, it is here too. It is, it is, in full force. But we do have the breeze. Always, right! It's hot, but we have the breeze. So we're in this wonderful little neighborhood called Bungalow Hill. Where is that? Bungalow Hill happens to be one of the west of the trail neighborhoods, just a little bit south of Hudson Bayou. And if you're not really, I mean a lot of people know what west of the trail means, but that's west of US 41, it kind of separates. And they used to call 41, Tamiami Trail, right. Of course you know what that means, right? Tampa-Miami. Tampa to Miami, a lot of people didn't know that. But it's right in the heart of Sarasota, you literally can walk to downtown. It's in the hospital area, so a lot of times you've got a lot of medical people that are in this area, and then great schools, right? Great schools: Southside, Brookside, Sarasota High School, and as you mentioned the walkability. Selby Gardens, Marina Jack, Burns Court, it's just a fabulous location. Right, and this has just been hot, but tell us a little history about Bungalow Hill. Well, I did a little bit of research as I'm often known to do. And actually it was established back in the early 1900s, as its own separate neighborhood. And the city of Sarasota wanted to incorporate it into the city. Of course they would. So they could collect their taxes. But the residents weren't really getting any services, no sewer. And they're like, "Why should we give the city of Sarasota." That was in the old days. That was in the old days. "Why should we give the city of Sarasota money when we're not getting any services?" They were rebels. They were, they absolutely were. And so there was a lot of back and forth, they became known as Sarasota Heights. And then eventually in the early 1920s everybody started to play nice and it became part of the city. So now we have sewer, right? We do, we do. But there's cottages, and bungalows, and new construction. There's a lot of architectural diversity in the neighborhood as well. And we just listed a very special house. It's here on Citrus Avenue, which is a very cool, no cut-through street. Right. And what I love about it, is it's on 3, 50-foot lots, so it's 150 feet. And speaking of bungalows, you don't see a lot of very large parcels here. No. And you're getting four bedrooms, over 3,000 square feet, for a million 395, right in the heart of Sarasota...like, winner. Yeah, coming to market very soon, we'd be very anxious to show it to you. Thanks so much for joining us on REALTALK™.
