This week is spring break for a lot of peeps, and we know that a hefty slice of Dallasites and North Texans have invaded the Beaches of Walton County, Florida, those picture-perfect white sands along Highway 30-A in the panhandle of northwest Florida.
Hey guys, listen up. I’ve finally got my own TV Show! It’s called Party Line Real Estate, it’s loaded with real-time Real Estate news, and you are going to LOVE IT!

Will Legal Pot Make Colorado Ski Homes a Smoking Commodity? Realtors Doubt Toking Will Lead to a New Joint
We’ve seen photos and stories from Colorado ski towns such as Aspen and Breckenridge showing vacationers filing lines out the door at marijuana shops, so of course, we had to wonder what kind of impact legal pot could have on Colorado real estate.

Remember when the signs on Central said “75 North: Sherman” before McKinney got cool? That Sherman. Most areas are heavily treed, with abundant wildlife, sandy loam soil, and a real out-in-the-country feel.
It doesn’t get much better than this, does it?
