It’s all about me (The Author) I live in a 55+ Active Adult Community.

Dapper JoelI thought I’d give a little bit of information about myself.  First of all, I was born at a very early age in Detroit Michigan.  I’ve lived in Michigan, Phoenix, California, Toronto, and now Florida (since 1989).   I’m 71 years old and still alive and kicking (except for my sciatica). I live in and am actively involved in the 55+ Active Adult Community of Villaggio.  There are more than seventy 55+ Active Adult Communities in Palm Beach County, Florida.

I’m actively working (as a full time Realtor with Coldwell Banker) and also involved in Tennis, Poker, Socializing plus I enjoy many of the other activities, amenities and advantages of living in an Over 55+ Active Adult Community.

Picture of CandaceOur Three PetsCandace and I were married in 1992 (not the 1st one for either of us).  Candace has two daughters and I have 2 sons.  The above combination has resulted in 7 grandchildren ranging in age from 3 to 23.  In addition to the 4 kids  between us, we also have 2 dogs and a cat.  

I was in the computer business from 1961 thru 2008 (47 years).  I owned American Computer Traders in Ft Lauderdale (later to become Computer Business Solutions). After my career in the Computer World, I teamed up with my wife Candace who has been in the Real Estate business since 1986 (27 years).  The combination of her longevity and training over the years coupled with the technical expertise that I brought to the team has enabled us to develop a highly effective and aggressive marketing plan that works well in today’s internet based world.  Our Aggressive Marketing works out great for persons selling their homes.  As a resule, we can generally sell their homes faster and for more money.

Persons looking to purchase a home get the commitment that Candace and I (The Harelik Team) promise.  Whether buying or selling, in either case, we’re with you all the way to the closing table.  We really do love our work and love to help people.

Outside of the BoxI’ve always have been an outside of the box thinker.  I’ve applied many of my thoughts into  developing our website ( and writing Blog Articles (which this is one of).  I’m all about Working with people, creating value, creativity, and making a difference. I’m passionate about the things I love to do.  I’m a positive (the glass is half full) kind of person.  I try to look for the positive in every situation (no matter how bad it may be).


I’m thankful for the blessings that I’ve received.  A Fruitful Life, A Wonderful Wife, Great Kids, Great Friends and a belief that if you love what you do for a living, you’ll never work a day in your life.  That’s how I view my Real Estate Career in Working with and helping people.  After all, I am a people person.

If there’s any way that Candace or I can help you in any Real Estate situation, give us a call.  We’re both lucky because We Love Our Work.
