With humble origins of pineapple farms, today’s Boca Raton, known to more than 200,000 residents, has made great strides over the past millennium. The earliest cataloged history of Boca Raton, Florida noted its beginnings as a Tequesta Indian settlement. It wasn’t until the construction of the Florida East Coast Canal, which is today’s Intracoastal, as well as the Florida East Coast Railway in the 1890s, that Boca began to boom. The newly-developed accessibility brought pioneers to the area in the early 1900s who created a small agricultural community.

It’s hard to believe that the Holiday season is upon us – how quickly the year went by. This is the time of year when we should all pause and express our gratitude for all that we have.

I recently read an article that focused on luxury real estate and it noted that the meaning of luxury has changed. It’s no longer about just price point – it has now taken on a more personal definition. It may mean convenience, amenities, features and anything else that helps offer a lifestyle that promotes “happier living.”

In looking at the mix of properties being presented by our real estate partners, I realized the truth in these words. Of course, living happier lives may come with a price tag but it also comes with the opportunity for a uniqueness that is defined by the individual doing the looking.
