Monday Blues Hit Extra Hard This Week!

Early Monday morning, Anna Maria Island and the surrounding areas were hit by unannounced Tropical Storm Emily.  She came in with a vengenze causing areas to flood, trees became uprooted and even a tornado touched down in NW Bradenton.  Thankfully, we have not heard of anyone getting hurt during the storm but sad to say that some of our local businesses really got the brunt of it.

Our maintenance team has been disbatched to many of our vacation rental properties to make sure all is okay.   The only semi-major report that came in was a tree that broke off and landed on the next door neighbor’s car of one of our rentals.  With a quick response, Team Duncan took care of this small issue.  We were also glad to see that the streets of Anna Maria were not as flooded as they can be.

Nothing like starting the week off with a Tropical Storm!  Hope that this is the only one that we have to deal with  - if we can even be so lucky!

Duncan Real Estate Banner (2)

I have had my party pants on at work over the past few weeks celebration our 15th anniversary and also the owner’s birthday!  “HAPPY ANNIBRTHARY” as we like to say in the office.  LOTS of flowers, balloons, cakes, champagne, phone calls, and fun!   What started as a one room office with one realtor in 2001 has now turned into a full office building on historic Pine Ave with 12 sales agents and 7 office staff!!!  WOW, there is so much to be thankful for!   Here are some photos from our celebration!  Our team found an old advertisement of Darcie’s from when she first started, so we made tons of copies of it and hung them all over her office!  She LOVED it.  It is so great to work in an environment where we work hard but also have so much fun!!  Many thanks to all of our customers that have made this possible!  Ginger
