Why did I move to Naples, Florida and become a Realtor?
I visited Florida several times a year since my teens so when the opportunity presented itself, I gave up my School
Director role at a prestigious Art & Design College in New York City (SoHo)
to relocate to Naples, Florida.
For several years, my wife Shay and I viewed investment
and vacation properties in Upstate New York, The Jersey Shore, Mexico, Florida’s East
Coast and eventually Florida’s Gulf Coast or “Paradise Coast” as coined by
local enthusiasts. During one of our weekend escapes from New York City, we visited
Naples, FL and Marco Island. While searching real estate listings online during
breakfast, we saw a condo on Residence Beach with an ocean view within our budget. We
contacted our Realtor for a showing and knew immediately that the beachfront
condo location was ideal.
Inventory was low and we didn't want to loose the
opportunity to fulfill a lifelong goal of owning an investment property on the
beach. After some brief discussion Shay and I made an offer for our first beachfront
A couple months later we made another trip from NY to Naples.
This time it was to close on the condo investment. That afternoon Shay and
I walked on the beach together as a rainbow appeared over the
top of our condominium from Residence Beach. Seeing that rainbow triggered a realization that a longtime dream had just come true for both of us. As longtime renters in NYC, this
was a dream come true. Now we rent out our Marco Island condo in high-season
(November- April) and encourage friends and family to use it in the low-season.
An immediate lifestyle improvement occurred once we began
spending time between NY and Naples on a regular basis. This prompted us to buy a second property
near downtown Naples a year later and shortly after we launched our real estate business.
It's no mistake I chose Premiere Plus Realty, Co as my Broker of choice to work with. The experience we had closing on our Naples home was stress free, organized and educational. Everything we needed was handled professionally from the search, to the loan to the title and closing. Everything was done with high integrity.
I believe everyone
deserves a chance to improve their lifestyle by owning a home or investment property and my primary purpose is to be
part of that experience as often as possible.
