Testimonial For: Mike Mazur at Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate

My girlfriend and I have been considering a move from North Carolina to Delaware and have been looking for potential properties with Mike's assistance. He has been incredibly helpful so far, and very accommodating with our long distance search. He is very in tune with what we are looking for, and has even done a couple walk throughs with us via facetime! He has truly gone above and beyond what we have expected, and we are looking forward to closing a deal with him once we find our perfect property. I highly recommend him!

I remember being super young, riding in my family's Aerostar, Glacier-colored Game Boy Advance with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 in hand, looking out the windows while the next level loaded 🕹 Every time I'd pass the old bowling alley on Port Malabar I'd imagine people skating it. It was a dream spot! It was stairs that had a handrail running down the center of them, in our city, and it could be skated. I'd envision the pros from the games (the only skateboarders I knew) doing tricks down it, and I'd tell myself how I'm gonna go there one day when I'm older. A little over a decade later, I got "older" and I was there. Often. First by riding on my friend's pegs, then by car, pulling out work lights and skating it at night. I shot so many photos of so many people doing so many different tricks down these stairs for so many years and laid in so many unidentifiable stains and wet spots to get whatever shot(s) that the day called for. This photo was taken on April 24, 2014, and it was the last photo I shot there—coincidentally, it was also the wildest 🤯 For years, every time I'd come to this spot, whether it was with my regular friends or I was hopping in an out-of-town crew's car and playing tour guide for the day, somebody would mention how it would be cool to skate the rocky ledges extending out from it, knowing it would be pretty much impossible. The spot eventually got skated by a handful of pro skateboarders who would stop by while on Florida tours. Between them, and locals progressing by the day, the list of tricks that hadn't been done on it yet was dwindling quick. Knowing we wanted to shoot a trick down it that nobody had done before, Mat and I rolled out there one evening, stairs dirtier than they were most days, beer bottles shattered on the area where he had to land, and I had to lay, we did the trick that a lot of people joked about. We shot a photo on the rocky ledges. We were both blown away by what just happened and didn't tell anybody. ...until the next issue of Focus Skate Mag—the Philadelphia-based skateboarding magazine I worked for at the time—dropped, then we let the pages (and Instagram) do the talking. This is one of my favorite photos I've ever shot 🏆 And one of the last skateboarding photos I shot while I was among the years where I'd shoot nothing but skateboarding. Landscape photography broke that pattern. 🔵 FUN FACT: Just like I have favorite places to shoot the sky around Florida's Space Coast, I have favorite places to shoot skateboarding as well. Even though this building was torn down several years ago, it's never leaving the top of the list. A few of my friends have an ongoing joke about just how many photos I've taken there. It's essentially the Melbourne Causeway's skateboarding counterpart, in terms of a location to amount of photos taken there, ratio, for me. 🔵 stephenoliveira.com
