Covid accelerated the changes here on the island, but during the last few years, new hotels, more convenient transportation and a history breaking level of growth in real estate, moved the island in a new direction. We have more parks, less parking and more new faces here on this island.
Why? The trend toward work from home business models, in my opinion, accelerated what we all knew would happen anyway. People were moving to Florida and Amelia, but they were given more opportunity to work from home and from anywhere, so choosing to live in a place with more recreation, friendlier people, outstanding beaches….pretty much outstanding opportunity in almost anything you like with an international airport nearby….we’re now seeing some changes years ahead of anything locals expected.
