November 15, 2012 (Newswire.com) - WEICHERT, REALTORS® - SouthShore hosted a real estate information and orientation booth at the recent Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce Expo. The Expo, which is "timed to welcome back the 'Snowbirds'," said Broker/Owner Colin Howgill, "is an opportunity for us to meet old friends and make new ones from among the winter visitors." Winter visitors to the retirement retreat of Sun City Center, Florida often return yearly from New England, Canada and the Atlantic Seaboard states. Howgill also said that the Apollo Beach, Florida agency was the only real estate company at the event this year.
Among the many highlights of the Expo, held in the Sun City Center Community Center Hall, was a book-signing by the retired, combat-decorated United States Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North. North, also a best-selling author, brought his new book, HEROES PROVED, to the event. Mr. Howgill and Lieutenant Colonel North renewed their old acquaintance, recalling when they served together in the nation's capital. At the time, Howgill was Chief of Staff at the British Defense Staff in the British Embassy, Washington, D.C., and North was located U.S. Marine Corps Headquarters.
