Happy Thanksgiving from Ben & Mayra Stern

We want to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. Even though It has been a stressful year for all, with unprecedented challenges, we must try to remember the good things in our lives. Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday. It truly makes us step back and think about the beauty we do have in our lives, the things that we need to be grateful for. We know that it might be hard to find things that we are thankful for when so much is wrong around us, but there is beauty out there. “Heroes arise in the most unexpected places” (quote from the Rent Collector book by Camron Wright). We must look for the helpers:The neighbors that care about us, our circle of friends and family, the total strangers that lend us a hand when we need it most. We must find the strenght to face every day. As the Chinese Proverb says: “To get through the hardest journey we need to take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping.”

On another note, the real estate market is doing very well, although everyone has had a very challenging year. We have enclosed a few real estate articles that might interest you.

New Yorkers love the exclusive town of Highland Beach in Florida, and we do too!

We have been thinking about how much fun we had a few years ago when we went on our trip to New York city.

Many of our Highland Beach Florida neighbors are from New York. They either have a second home here in Highland Beach, or have permanently moved to Florida to take advantage of the lower taxes, the lower cost of living, and the much warmer Florida weather.  Florida has no personal income tax, therefore, Florida is reeling in new residents, and their wealth, while other states like New York, New Jersey, & Connecticut are experiencing an exodus of residents.  Florida came out on top, attracting $17.2 billion more than it lost—the recipient of a “wealth exodus” from many states, including New York, which contributed about $8 billion to Florida’s income base, according to this article in Bloomberg: Florida Is the Big Winner as the Wealthy Move Out of Northern States

New Yorkers love Highland Beach, and we do too! Highland Beach is a small exclusive beach town located just south of the City of Delray Beach and north of Boca Raton in Florida. The Town is 1.1 total square miles. Highland Beach is a  coastal community with a year-round population of 4,150 which increases to approximately 8,500 during the winter months. The roughly three mile stretch of beach in the Town of Highland Beach provides our residents with a place to relax and recreate. Our beaches also serve as critical nesting grounds for endangered sea turtles. The Town of Highland Beach has a Post Office, Fire Department, Police Station & a brand new Public Library overlooking the Intracoastal.

There are lots of attractions nearby. Highland Beach is just 5 minutes away from famed Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach, and Boca Raton’s Downtown. The quaint coastal town of Deerfield Beach is located just 10 minutes away, and the exclusive city of Palm Beach is just about 20 minutes away. Highland Beach is 30 minutes away from 2 major airports and 10 minutes away from the Boca Raton Airport. There are lots of things to do and attractions nearby, such as: the Town Center at Boca Raton, Mizner Park, the shops at Royal Palm Place, and Worth Avenue. Rent a boat for the day, or go on a cruise through the Intracoastal Waterway. You can go surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, or just take a relaxing walk by the beach! Go take a Brewery tour, visit the local parks and museums, try the many restaurants in the area, go golfing, go play tennis at the Delray Tennis Center, go to the many street festivals the cities nearby organize, and more! The possibilities are endless when it is sunny outside! Location, location, location!

If you are interested in buying or selling a luxury property in Highland Beach Florida, or the surrounding coastal cities, please, text us at 561-715-0314.

Much health to all,

Mayra & Ben Stern, Stern Realty
