Buying a Property – Begin Your Own Property Search:

So, if you’re ready to begin your property search for your dream home or condo, I encourage you to explore my website to find information about communities in Southwest Florida.  If golf is your game, I specialize in golf community real estate and would be happy to help you navigate the more than 100 different golf communities in our area.  If you prefer a more direct approach, I will provide a list of properties that meet your criteria and/or communities that meet your needs.

Bottom Line:

naples golf communitiesIf you are buying a home in a golf community, you will find it’s more complex than a typical home purchase.  As you can probably imagine, there are significant differences between golf communities.  There are many different fee structures, membership options, pet restrictions, demographics and many other details that apply to the SWFL golf communities.

Also, if you are considering new construction, remember the contractor’s real estate agent represents the builder’s best interest, not yours.  There is no cost to you to have an agent represent you. In fact, I may be able to help you save money and negotiate for extras which the builder may not let you know about.

If you’re looking for information about a specific community in Bonita Springs, Estero or Naples, please contact me and I will prepare a custom market report for you.  I will provide the market information and insights to help make sure you select your dream home!

Lastly, I will handle all contract negotiations for your property from offer to close!
