Hilton has a good name and people vacationing in South Florida and traveling here for business will be drawn to booking a room here. It will attract more visitors to the downtown area which will also bring more revenue to the businesses in that area, including stores, restaurants, salons, dry cleaners and banks. Also, assuming there will be rooms available for seminars, that will also draw more people to the area.

Kim Bregman answered:
This is a great question...but not the most important one you should be asking at the beginning of your home search.

There are many neighborhoods in Boca Raton that may interest you...but first, you should consider which real estate professional you want to work with and develop a relationship with. As a Buyer you should only be using an Exclusive Buyer Agent ( EBA). An EBA does not LIST any properties and has a fiduciary relationship with JUST THE BUYER. They never have a conflict of interest, never represent the Seller and are not transactional agents who work for themselves and do not have the buyer best interests as their motivation. To learn more about Exclusive Buyer Brokerage visit my website at, the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (, or the Florida Association of Exclusive Buyer Agent (

Florida Brokerages that have Listings with obligations to market and sell properties are known as "Transaction Brokerages". A Transaction Brokerage is simply a "facilitator" of a real estate transaction and by state law, does NOT provide Fiduciary Representation, Total Loyalty or Full Disclosure. These are all elements of an Agency / Agent relationship.

A Buyer Broker / Brokerage and its Exclusive Buyer Agents represent ONLY Buyers. A Buyers Brokerage NEVER have contractual obligations to Sellers. They have no obligation to present properties in the best possible light or to get the HIGHEST PRICE price.

Once you find the right agent to work with you can then narrow down the areas you want to focus on based what schools you want to consider.

Oh boy, don't send him to the VA website if he's looking for a "clear answer" to anything! I'm a Veteran and have a VA loan and have worked with clients using VA loans and, no matter how you slice it, the VA is not usually very helpful and their website is downright awful!
The VA standard is 2 years from short sale to new loan, but I believe you may be able to find a lender who can work around that, especially if you kept making your payments. The key is to find a good loan officer. Best of luck with your transition and thanks for your service...Jim
