Be careful of their agents. Bad experience with Raphael Glasser. Started working with him and among other things, didn't bother to mention a sewer treatment plant right next to a property in Las Vegas... I was interested in. Be nice if 55places screened their partnered agents a little better. See More

The perfect place to retire to if you love New Jersey like I do. Xanado is close to everything you need to have fun. Everything except the Bugs, Gators, Bob Cats and Snakes you find in Florida.

If you people think that Kings Point of Delray Beach is anywhere close to being in the top 100 places to live, then you have zero creditabilitty.
