Don’t get all wet. Prepare for the rainy season while it’s dry.

As Benjamin Franklin once said, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
We know. The last thing you are thinking about at the summer barbecue is preparing for the stormy season. But it really is worth taking a look around your house during fair weather, because finding out you have a problem during inclement conditions is at best inconvenient and at worst very costly.
Check your rain gutters.
Clear them out and make sure they are in good working order to prevent damage to the roof or house.
Look at your roof.
If you see loose or damaged shingles, get them repaired. Look for tears and buckling on flashing. Check the chimney and look for damaged bricks, cap or cracked joints. Don’t forget the flashing there too.
Check indoors for signs of roof leaks.
Look for discoloration and peeling paint on ceilings and walls. Check in the attic for damp rafters.
Check the trees.
Trim back branches and cut sections that could fall in a rainstorm.
Check doors and windows.
Make sure there are properly insulated with weather stripping.
Look for water collecting at the base of the house.
Redirect water with trenches or drains.
Keep sandbags on hand.
if your area is prone to flooding, keep them filled and at the ready.
Check for erosion.
This is important if you live near a hillside. Shore them up if necessary.

Re: McAlister Properties LLC

10/1/2019 Adams Homes really rolled out the red carpet for us yesterday at our Magic Monday on the roll meeting! Dave Jackson. their Area Manager personally escorted us to three of his communities and their sales teams gave us great presentations of their spec inventories and all the amenities. They are building in Port St. Lucie on individual lots, then River Place is an treed/ preserve HOA community that features even a boat launch. In Fort Pierce there is a new community called Watersong which is going to have a beautiful clubhouse and even pickle ball. With all the growth at the Fort Pierce Inlet, the location will be popular for new home buyers, move ups, and snowbirds of all ages. Our agents were very grateful for all the information and will be happy to help anyone explore what Adams Homes has to offer!  Thank you Adams HOMES!

Grow Silently

This is one of the quotes that Mary Lou Fogarty share with all of us at Magic Monday this week.  We hope you enjoy us sharing some of the positive quotes every week.


A seed grows with 
no sound but a tree falls with
huge noise.  Destruction has noise, 
but creation is quiet.
This is the power of silence....

Grow silently.

We hope you have a great week!

Highlighting something wonderful! By Sandy McAlister, Broker/ Owner 

I was lucky enough last week to see this fine lady speak, Connie Podesta at Brian Buffini's Mastermind Summit in San Diego. Mastermind is a super conference meant for Realtors, related vendors and their families. Connie was uplifting and just plain funny and made us all laugh. Below is a favorite quote by her and I highly recommend her book , " Life would be easy, if it weren't for other people." Give it a read!

I am choosing to be more creative, more passionate, more productive, and more confident
than ever before. Why? Because I have no other choice if I want to succeed. And, believe
me, success is not an option for me; and hopefully, not for you either. Ready to tackle the
world? Then start with a change and a choice. Change any attitudes and behaviors that may
get in your way and sabotage your success. And choose to forge ahead with spirit,
determination and a lot of love along the way
.
