    Bahamas Visitors Prefer –

    Hello Toby:

    I am not surprised by the growth of your web site. Here in the Bahamas I have personally sent your web site to a large number of business associates, the newspapers, family and friends. You are top notch in reporting the facts and eliminating the fluff.

    Thank you for the outstanding reports about the latest developments in Florida real estate.
