While this long holiday weekend most often signifies the beginning of summer with the kids out of school, pools opening, picnics and BBQs with friends and family, and overall celebration, we must remember WHY we have this holiday. Memorial Day is here for us to remember the sacrifice made by men and women who have served our country in order for us to enjoy the freedom that is so important to Americans. So please remember to take a moment to thank our veterans this weekend, and every day.

Happy Memorial Day from the Nick Flerlage Team!

It’s always good to be PREPARED, especially for emergencies such as hurricanes and tropical storms!

To decrease chances of injury, it is critical to know what ACTIONS to take before the start of hurricane season and once the store hits. According to the National Weather Service, the main hazards from tropical storms and hurricanes are storm surge flooding, inland flooding from heavy rains, destructive winds, tornadoes, and high surf and rip currents. In the event of a storm, please click here to find your nearest evacuation route, shelter, and hospital.

VOTE Venice Main Street to the Finale'!


Main Streets play an integral role in a community. Not only do they provide a fun place for residents and visitors to stroll around, but they also contribute to the economic success of a community. America’s Main Streets Contest is here to show this importance, and we are thrilled that Venice MainStreet is in the finals and has the opportunity to win $25,000 in cash that would go towards revitalization of its Main Street!

"Over $61 billion has been reinvested into America's Main Streets since 1980. Which in turn helped create 120,510 new businesses and rehabilitated 251,838 buildings." (Source: Main Street America)

If you aren’t familiar with the fabulous Venice MainStreet, let us fill you in! Designed by John Nolen, the vibrant downtown Venice, beautifully lined with palm trees, offers an abundance of shops, restaurants, and cafes (more than 130 to be exact!), as well as yearly events and live outdoor music. It was designed to be a paradise for its residents, and continues to be just that!

Don’t forget to VOTE for Venice MainStreet!! Voting ends on May 29th, and you can vote everyday until that date!

It’s time to celebrate two of Florida’s Safest Cities listed at the top of the list---North Port #22 and Venice #34!!


What makes North Port, one of the fastest growing cities in Florida, so great? Where do we start! Beauty, economic development, and excellent public education are just a few of the many. And to top it off, North Port is also a very safe place for families. See current listings in North Port here!
