Market Conditions:  So far in 2017, the real estate market has been fairly good, with sales
running slightly above 2016 levels in our firm.  Most offices are experiencing increases.  The
hurricane has put a damper on things for the moment.  We will probably see a pause in sales
for a few weeks and then hopefully things will get back to normal.  A lot of landscaping was
damaged.  Many trees are down and many screen cages were damaged.  But, all-in-all, I think
we faired pretty well for such a big storm.  Naples will always be a desired destination for the
snow-birds and soon the storm will be forgotten and things should get back to normal. 

The Vineyards:   The Vineyards has had good sales all year.  People still find it to be one of
the better communities to live in.  Not being far from the expressway, you can get to the airport
in about 30 minutes.  You do not have to be a golfer to live in the Vineyards.  If you wish to join
the club, there are several kinds of memberships available.  It is a club offering golf, tennis,
fitness, formal and informal dining and social activities.

Karen Smith is the Vineyards real estate expert.  Karen has been listing and selling in the
