    Punishment? My position who I would list my beachfront property, now or in the future, is a consequence, not a punishment, of ECAR CEO Keith Dean and past and present President leadership policy on CU of my private property and Walton Realtors apparent acceptance of ECAR's CU position; except Scenic Sotheby brokers. I'd use Scenic Sotheby's brokers or a Bay County Realtor before I used a Walton Realtor who accepted ECAR leaderships CU positions.

    I’m sure they’re all penning letters right now out of fear of losing your business. :lol:

    No Poppaj, they should just pen their letters because it’s simply the right thing to do, like Blake Morar and Chris Abbott did.

    Good morning, Blue Mountain Beach Vagrant. I'm worried about you. You are on the site ALL THE TIME. It's
    summer so go outside and enjoy your beach-front property. Honestly!! Get a hobby, read a book. Coastal
    Library branch has some good selections in the New Arrivals section; I checked out a book last week. Enjoy!

    Dave,

    Nice creative writing. Problem is, everything in your letter is based on a false premise. You may wish that words were in laws the way you like them, they are not. You may wish to control someone else's property, you cannot. Shifting sands smells like a shifty sleight of hand. Our heritage is not a socialist heritage of sharing, but rather one of protection of rights, including personal property, not communal in nature. You may wish that people didn't own what they do, but none of that is true.

    Therefore your letter is a wish list, like unicorns and rainbows. The sherrifff seems to be recognizing the position CU has put him in. The public seems to have woken up to the charade. Several people have repeatedly asked for a public forum to discuss.

    Dave, as the voice of the movement, You ready?

    Want to make clear, to CUers, about any BFO decision to use a Walton ECAR Realtor or not. Scenic Sotherby's brokers advocated for ECAR leadership to take NO position on public customary use of private property. ECAR Realtor leadership, CEO Keith Dean and member elected ECAR Presidents, representing, what 3,000+ ECAR Realtors, choose not to remain neutral but to pick sides on property rights or CU based on their personal CU agenda IMO - in opposition to the Nation Realtor policy on property rights. Good on Scenic Sotherby's brokers and what a "handful" of Realtors (and BFOs) to publicly call for ECAR to follow their own Nation Realtor policy. One beachfront listing would bring what 10 times(?) more commission than a listing north of 98? An ECAR agent would have to list and sale 10(?) private properties for each private beachfront property?

    NAR FPC Training & Federal Policy Conference
    Private Property Rights and Public Land Transfers Issue Summary
    NAR Policy: Governments shall not arbitrarily infringe on the basic right of the individual to acquire, possess and
    freely transfer real property, and shall protect private property rights as referred to in the 5th and 14th Amendments of the United States Constitution.

    NAR supports legislative implementation of the 5th Amendment’s guarantee of compensation when property rights are taken. Every person should have the right to acquire real property with confidence and certainty that the use or value of such property will not be wholly or substantially eliminated by governmental action at any level without just compensation or the owner's express consent.

    NAR Land Use & Property Rights
    Political Advocacy
    Governments shall not arbitrarily infringe [without due process first] on the basic right of the individual to acquire, possess [, have private enjoyment of] and freely transfer real property, and shall protect private property rights as referred to in the 5th and 14th Amendments of the United States Constitution. This is a foundational element for all REALTORS and for NAR.”

    Maybe Dave, Daniel and everyone on social media who "believes" in Walton CU can go to the library and learn about the history of an archaic English legal doctrine of custom and what the criteria are or read the American Constitution?

    Yes, realtors promise to follow rules and ethics of their profession and are required to attend law and ethics courses as part of their continuing education therefore there is zero need to pen a ridiculous letter to appease some snowflake homeowner.

    What can I say? I love SoWal!

    Seriously, my passion for private property rights and fear of government abuse is deeply rooted. When someone like a Dave Rauschkolb can manipulate the hearts and minds of so many who don’t see the facts and real percussions of eroding private property rights, it really motivates me to speak up.

    Dave is everywhere.

    I don’t bother posting on Facebook. I don’t write unicorn articles and inject them via multiple outlets attacking the sanctity of owning private property with very little push back from credible sources. I don’t organize a FPPA group (Florida private property advocates) and go way out of my way to spread mistruths and generate ill will towards those who don’t own private property. I don’t grab the hands of fellow BFOs and have “Stand on Our Own Sand” demonstrations. I don’t go on the weather channel. I don’t analyze the spelling of sherrriiff...on and on and on and on.

    So the time I spend just here helping to shed the light of truth to those willing to listen with an open mind is definitely worth it to me in many ways. And it pales in comparison to the time Dave R spends (you should definitely be more worried about him).

    But I appreciate your concern. I’ve been working on my hole in the water and it’s hot as hell out there. Coming inside and jumping on SoWal actually helps me cool off. :)

    I just wish BMBV's little fishing man avatar still worked. I used to be obsessed with it, it was pretty hypnotic.

    Interesting that two Scenic Sotheby Realtors serve in top leadership positions at ECAR. They were elected by the members and support CU. Ecar has supported CU since 2016 and is not a new policy.

    Not sure what your point is? Is it that I’m just now bring up and rejecting ECAR Realtor Floridians for the Preservation of Customary Use social media misinformation and continuing CU positions on this thread because ECAR CU position goes back to 2016? #889 Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy
    FB May 30 2018 FPCU Excutive Vice President Keith Dean.jpg

    Me and many other BFOs have said before and told every BFO since the 2016 county elections about ECAR Realtor leadership taking a CU position against private property rights and not being neutral - in opposition to the National Association of Realtors policy in support of Constitutional property protections.

    I counted 1 Scenic Sotheby Realtor mentioned on this thread, current ECAR Realtor President Nina McCaslin-Horn, not 2 Scenic Sotheby Realtors “in top leadership positions”. Do you have some other facts we are not aware of? You have heard too, that according to some on this forum, that use of “anonymous” pseudonyms make any facts or anything you say “wrong” and meaningless. Just so you know.

    Interestingly enough no Realtor I’ve ever talked to knew about any ECAR’s CU positions until 2016. October 2015 Arnold Keith Dean, surprisingly a CPA, not a Realtor, was hired, not elected, as ECAR CEO. Coincident? I think not. Good thing the CEO is not elected, after what I heard about ECAR Realtors soundly rejecting Keith Dean’s and the ECAR President’s “revised” ECAR By-laws recently. Heard it got Ugly during the ECAR vote.
    You know a lot about ECAR Realtors CU positions back to 2016 as a “new guy”.

    Which Scenic Sotheby’s office was offering notaries? There’s Destin, Santa Rosa Beach (Blake Morar and Chris Abbott own) and Rosemary Beach.

    Letter to ECAR from Scenic Sotheby’s - Santa Rosa Beach
