St. Croix USVI Real Estate & Other Good Things

Month: November 2008

Kitchens, Doors, Tile…

Today we stopped in at Armrey Industries, part of a new group of businesses located just outside of Christiansted, USVI. Armrey and their partners at Richmond Design Center have a unique business model that umbrellas three companies under one roof… kitchens & bath products, windows and doors, and tile products. Plus each company helps with design and does professional installation. What a great idea!

The three showrooms offer great ideas and knowledgeable employees. Everyone was friendly as we browsed around and learned about their different products. There are many styles of granite, CorianĀ®, and even bamboo counter tops available. We saw dozens of floor and bath tiles plus beautiful mosaic designs in the tile showroom. And in the door and window showroom I was impressed by the beautiful wood and glass folding doors that would be perfect for opening up any tropical home to the outdoors. Later, we got a quick tour of one of their manufacturing facilities and watched craftsman fabricate custom granite counter tops.

Obama Wins Presidency!

obama5.jpgIt’s been a long campaign but tonight Obama pulled out the big win. The first ever African American has been elected President! Down here in St. Croix we’ve seen many Obama signs and bumper stickers (and USVI residents can’t even vote for President). It’s apparent to me St. Croix was rooting for Obama / Biden.

The people I talk to are genuinely excited about a future with Obama as President. Even though times are tough economically people are optimistic. New, secure jobs created from investing heavily in the renewables industry seems like a smart direction for the country. Getting out of Iraq will certainly allow us to redirect 10 billion per month to other areas. That’s 300 million per day. Plus, a tax cut for 95% of Americans will help.

Comments from Obama supporters usually revolve around his intelligence, thoughtfulness and inspirational abilities, many make parallels to John F. Kennedy. My hope is that he’ll set a good example for America on the world stage and accomplish what he has proposed to do here at home. Congratulations Barack Obama and Joe Biden!
