About Me--Writing about retirement communities  


Carol Fena in Miami Fl

If you are curious about why this website was created and about the person responsible for it's creation--this page will help you.

More than 20 years ago I received my real estate license in California and was in that career for a long time.  My husband was also a real estate appraiser and taught me a lot about that field and how to value property.  This gave me a huge boost in my real estate career and I was successful.

At some point in the past 20 years, I went into the property management field as an Apartment Manager for 8 or more years.  I am by nature very curious and thought investment property an interesting field and wanted to round out my knowledge of real estate. 

(At one point, I even had a short stint at selling mobile and manufactured homes to learn more about them.)

My personal and professional life has been enriched by trying new things, continuing education and always asking questions.

I have now embarked on a totally different path--another result of being curious about life and continuing to educate myself--building a website about real estate where I can use my real estate experience but add another dimension--my creative side.

All my life I have wanted to write but, of course, never had the time while my children were young because they were my first priority.  Now with my children grown, I have time to do this thing I have always loved.  While I also enjoy art and music, I find writing to be my best creative outlet.

My other passion is the love of places--especially places that I have gathered in my memory naturally over the years--that fascinates me.  I have traveled and/or lived in most of the United States, and I have many beautiful places to share stories about. This website only touches on that love.

The fourth thing that has brought me to this place (building a website) is that I live in a retirement community.  I have found it so enjoyable that it seemed like the perfect subject to talk about.

And the vehicle for putting all of these pieces together, of course, is the website--I am so glad I found the "Solo Build It" program for building a website because I am not at all technical, but through Solo Build It have learned how to build a website.  Was it luck or fate--a little of both.

I really enjoy the feeling that I may be helping someone to find the right community.  When I do find a great community, I can't wait to get it on the site because it might be just what someone has been looking for.  Real estate can be a very satisfying career.   The best part is when you feel you have helped someone find that home right for them.

I look forward to keeping you informed about new communities and old, places and related subjects, and in exciting new forms, such as video, in the future for a long time to come.

In conclusion, four things have brought me to this place:  real estate, writing, places and retirement communities.

I hope you enjoy my website as much as I enjoy building it.

And thank you so much for visiting.
