Summit Fiber Optic Project Completion

December 3, 2016

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  It’s been a busy time here in L’Ambiance lately with the installation of the Summit Broadband ONT boxes in our coach homes.  This project finished last week. Now all of L’Ambiance has fiber optic cable into their units.  This gives all Residents 100 by 100 MPBS service that can go up to a gigabyte service at an Owner’s option. It also replaces the coax cable and telephone wire that was deteriorating under the units because they ran through conduit that was often filled with water. This caused distorted signals and signal loss.  The change to Summit fiber optics in our units should result in a decrease in service calls. A big thanks goes out to all Residents for helping us complete this project.

Our pool project finished the beginning of the fall.  Our pool and hot tub were resurfaced. Brown tile now replaces the green tile border we previously had on our pool and hot tub.

L’Ambiance is looking good, isn’t it?  More Residents are returning to their L’Ambiance units as evidenced by the activity in our neighborhood.  I hope everyone is enjoying their time in L’Ambiance.

The real estate market was slow over the summer.  I expected the market to perk up after the Presidental election but I haven’t seen that happen as of yet.  Each day I take a look at the MLS hot sheet for Pelican Bay and I see more and more price reductions coming through. I also have been seeing more expired listings pop up.  Our low rise inventory has risen also. We currently have an absorption rate of just over 8 months. I am beginning to think that we will see a slight downward shift to the market.

Are you thinking of selling your LAmbiance home?  Please give me a call.  I have a list of buyers who are looking for specific units in LAmbiance.  I’d be happy to discuss not only the pricing in LAmbiance but the pricing for low-rises in Pelican Bay and low-rises in Naples to see how your unit fits into the equation.

Holidays at LAmbiance in Pelican Bay

December 19, 2014

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  Rounding the corner into LAmbiance last night I truly enjoyed seeing our holiday lights.  We look so festive.

Holidiay Lights at LAmbiance in Pelican Bay entry LAmbiance Celebrates the Holidays

 

I wish these photos did the lights more justice.  Our entryway looks great and I have to compliment our decorating committee!

Tuesday night Don, my husband, and I went down to the new Marker 36; formerly known as The Sandpiper.  The place was extremely crowded but I did snap some photos for you to see.  CLICK HERE  I’m happy with the improvements and I think the new look is a benefit to our community.

While the holidays are just around the corner, we have had a bit of real estate activity in LAmbiance as units came pending.  To view all the active, pending and closed LAmbiance sales since the beginning of the year, CLICK HERE . I am anticipating a very busy season.  As of today, there are only 28 low rise listings on the market.  With so little inventory on the market, I can see prices starting to appreciate. Buyers are having a hard time recognizing the market has improved.

Have you started your Summit Broadband service yet? I would recommend you sign up and get scheduled as soon as possible.  Here’s a link for information on how to contact Summit —- CLICK HERE. Once Residents start coming back in January I imagine that Summit will be swamped with calls to set up service. Pelican Bay’s contract with Comcast ends in February 2015.  Don & I started our service on November 19th.  We went through some issues that took a while to get resolved but I am happy to report that our service is working fine.  I do want to say that Summit was a great deal more receptive in trying to solve our issues than Comcast.  Every time I turn on our TV I am AMAZED at the quality of the picture!

REMINDER – If you use a Comcast e-mail address that is linked to your Comcast service here in Naples, you will lose that address when you switch over to Summit Broadband.  You’ll want to change your e-mail address before the switch over to Summit happens.  Yahoo, Google and Outlook.com offer free e-mail services. Note: If you change your e-mail address, please let me know so I can keep you updated.

Should you be thinking of selling your home in Lambiance and want to know what your home is worth  in today’s market, I am happy to give you a free market evaluation. Feel free to call me at 239-594-2780 or e-mail me at Lynn@NaplesBuys.com

Holidays in LAmbiance

November 10, 2014

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples FL – The other day I noticed our Holiday lights were installed on the palm trees by LAmbiance’s front gate.  These lights will turn on after Thanksgiving for the holidays.  My first reaction when I saw that the lights were up was, “How did the holidays get here so fast?” Do you feel the same way?

It has been a busy year in LAmbiance with the new roof installations, the new gutters being installed, the buildings being power washed and the work being done on the 300 building. To top off our noise level this fall, Pelican Bay began resurfacing Pelican Bay BLVD.  The resurfacing work will be done soon.

Will you be having company over the holidays?  The Wilber family always seems to have company……at many times during the year. In case you don’t feel like cooking on Thanksgiving, Publix has a ready-made Thanksgiving turkey dinner with 5 side dishes.  All you have to do is heat the turkey! Our family has ordered from Publix in the past and it has made Thanksgiving very enjoyable.  For details of Publix’s Thanksgiving menu: CLICK HERE

This Thanksgiving will find me cooking as I’m lucky to have my brother, Patrick in town for Thanksgiving. I’ll be making our Mother’s recipe for turkey with stuffing. It’s not often that Don and I get to have Patrick with us at Thanksgiving.

If you have company over the holidays and don’t feel like cooking, you can order a Pasta Presto meal for 4 on-line from either Brio’s or Bravo’s.  Don and I have done this several times. You can choose one salad, one entre from different selections and the meal comes with their bread and dipping oil.  You’ll find the Pasta Presto meals under the catering tabs. This is a life saver when you are exhausted and no one feels like cooking.

LAmbiance’s toy drive party is being held this Sunday, November 16th from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM at the LAmbiance Clubhouse.  All are welcome. Please BYOB, an appetizer and an unwrapped toy or a check made payable to the Salvation Army.  Don and I will be there, will you?

What’s happening in the real estate market in LAmbiance? CLICK HERE We now have 7 units for sale in LAmbiance, 3 units are pending and since the beginning of the year there have been 7 sales.  As of today, there are only 29 low-rise listings for sale in LAmbiance.

REMINDER – If you use a Comcast e-mail address that is linked to your Comcast service here in Naples, you will lose that address when you switch over to Summit Broadband.  You’ll want to change your e-mail address before the switch over to Summit happens.  Yahoo, Google and Outlook.com offer free e-mail services.

I’ll look forward to seeing you at our LAmbiance toy drive!  If you aren’t in residence by then, I wish you a lovely Thanksgiving surrounded by the people you love.

LAmbiance We Had a Problem

February 20, 2014

LAmbiance-Pelican Bay-Naples, FL – "The best-laid plans of mice and men / Often go awry." LAmbiance’s plans didn’t anticipate the wrong color tile being delivered. The correct color tile was ordered and hopefully will be delivered tomorrow with work to being on the 2400 building on Monday.

At present we still have the wrong color tile placed, not installed, on the 2400 building.

2400 Building Lambiance 2-20-2014

As you can see from these photos, the roofers have worked their way counter clockwise from the 2400 taking the old tile off the roofs. They then have been placing the peel and stick water proofing materials on the roofs.

LAmbiance Roof Project 2-20-2014

Lambiance Roofs 2-20-2014

I’ve been told by our director, Don Wilber, that once the roofers get the correct tile, each roof should take approximately 2 days to complete.  My sister-in-law, Millie, is coming for a visit tomorrow from Chicago. I hoped that our building would be completed before her visit.  I have a feeling the noise won’t bother Millie because she will be too busy enjoying warm weather, blue skies, sun and NO SNOW!

Pelican Bay Media Provider

December 12, 2013

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  On December 6, 2013 the Pelican Bay Board of Directors held a special meeting so that residents could voice their concerns about the proposed change of media providers from Comcast to Summit Broadband.  My husband, Don, and I attended this meeting.  Don has a business that helps people with their computer issues. Don was a HUGE proponent of a switch from Comcast to Summit Broadband.  When we walked into the meeting we were given this Pelican Bay Foundation Special Meeting of the Board of Directors Dec 6 2013 which detailed the hardware and services  we would be receiving from Summit and the costs involved. This handout also had information from the Vineyards, who has media service from Summit Broadband.

I must tell you that the meeting was well run in that Pelican Bay residents on both sides of the issue were able to voice their opinions. The Board voted unanimously to change from Comcast to Summit Broadband. Pelican Bay’s contract ends with Comcast in February 2015.

On another note, wild life IS in L’Ambiance.  The other night I went out to water “our” my neighbor’s and my herbs only to see a visitor in the chives!

Mr Frog and the chives

I was so surprised to see a frog that large, that I almost dropped the watering can!

Our LAmbiance Board of Directors is discussing when and which building the roof replacement will start.  They have talked about starting at the 2400 building and working around the subdivision beginning with the coach homes. The Directors thought that starting out in the coach residences would cause less disruption to the people renting in the garden units.

I hope you are enjoying the holidays.

If you have thought of making a move in 2014, please give me a call. I have a list of potential buyers for L’Ambiance.
