The top 10 ‘Most Exciting’ city’s in Florida
When people think of Florida, they definitely think of fun. Amusement parks galore, beautiful beaches, and an awesome nightlife are all easy to find in this state, and the world knows it. Okay, so they might also think of retirement homes, but in general, Florida is one of the more exciting states in the nation.
So where are the most exciting places in this ever-exciting state? Ah, now that’s what the Movoto Real Estate Blog team decided to find out. We put on our shades and got ready to enjoy some beaches as we collected exciting data about Florida cities. Our finished list came out as:
1. City of Miami Beach
2. City of Fort Lauderdale
3. City of Miami
4. City of Sarasota
5. City of Orlando

The Top 10 Cities People Are Moving To, According To CNN Money
If you’re ready for a change of scenery in 2014, you’re not alone — millions of Americans change their residences each year in order to follow a job, experience a new lifestyle pace or sometimes just to forget that a season known as “winter” even exists.
But whatever the driving force might be, a city move has never been more popular — but it depends on where you go. According to CNNMoney, which released Penske Truck Rental’s annual list (see below for more) of top cities to move to in the country, certain metros are experiencing huge growth when compared to years prior. Well, except for Atlanta, which has snagged the No. 1 ranking for four consecutive years.
And while it might cost you more than it would have in years past to settle down in some of these areas, it’s quite difficult to argue with the perks of fantastic weather, reasonable costs of living and thriving economies most of the list has to offer.
#1. Tampa/Sarasota, Florida – Beaches, sunshine, jobs, and did I mention beaches!
#2. Atlanta, GA – Low cost of living, booming job market, halfway decent weather.
#3. Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas – Silicon Prarie – Jobs Galore and a palpable temperature.

Legacy Trail Extension fundraising drive to add 8 miles (including Downtown Sarasota)
DO YOU WANT TO ADD 8 MORE MILES TO THE LEGACY TRAIL?
Do you want to be able to ride the trail in to downtown Sarasota?
Do you want to be able to ride the trail from downtown Sarasota in to Gulf Gate and Venice?
Do you think having a 20 mile trail is good for our community?
If you answered YES to these questions then we need your help. We need two things:
1) You to donate – $10, $100, $1000 – it all helps
2) You to spread the word, by CLICKING HERE <—=== Share this page, Facebook, Twitter, Email
In August 2013, the Sarasota County Commissioners authorized Public Works to spend $75,000 on an initial study for the expansion of the trail. The study will cost just over $150,000, and the County is looking to Legacy Trail supporters for the additional funds. We need YOUR help to raise the additional dollars and get the project started.
The study will take about 6 months to complete. After that we will work to get the project “shovel ready.” Once the project is ready to go we will be able to ask for State and Federal funds to build the trail.
It’s GO Time and we need YOUR help.

Sarasota multimillionaire sailing on to Belize; Selling Investment Portfolio in Sarasota & Manatee
By Michael Pollick
Published: Wednesday, November 6, 2013 at 1:00 a.m.
Harvey Vengroff, a self-made multimillionaire who moved to Southwest Florida 23 years ago so he could go sailing every day, is sailing on — to Belize.
Vengroff, the 72-year-old founder of one of the world’s largest collection agencies, plans to sell a $75 million Southwest Florida property portfolio that he amassed after arriving in 1990. He has hired NAI Tampa Bay and Sean Dreznin, Phil Ginexi & Kyle Keelan & Andrew Haddad of Keller Williams to sell the portfolio investments. He is also making it possible for his real estate employees to acquire another $20 million worth of apartments on favorable terms.
Since he got here, Vengroff has been a colorful character who prefers casual clothes, rails against government bureaucrats and tends to do things his own way.
Vengroff renamed the collection agency that is still in the family as Vengroff Williams Inc.
That company, which employs more than 100 in this region, maintains larger offices in Long Island, N.Y.; Chicago and Orange County, Calif., collecting on commercial delinquent accounts for a large number of clients, including General Electric Co., Microsoft Corp. and Google Inc.
“We are not moving anybody out of Sarasota,” Vengroff told the Herald-Tribune. “We are just going to add new people in Belize, that’s all.”
One of them will be Harvey Vengroff.
On a more personal level, Vengroff said he has been disappointed in the reception he has gotten from the City of Sarasota when he has asked for higher density rights on properties so that he could build rental apartments. Specifically, he has sought permission to build high-rise rental buildings at 2211 Fruitville Road, the close-in, 8-acre site now on the market for $8 million.
“If you want to build luxury condos you can get 200 per acre,” Vengroff said. “If you want to build affordable housing, you cannot get 50 per acre.”
Vengroff says he has empowered three agents to liquidate the roughly $75 million in real estate, most of it affordable housing.
These agents are Sean Dreznin, Kyle Keelan and Phil Ginexi from NAI Tampa Bay.
“I don’t think there was anybody who ever dedicated themselves more to affordable housing for the work force than Harvey,” said Kerry Kirschner, executive director of Argus Foundation, who in a former political life helped recruit Vengroff to Southwest Florida.
