John - beautiful house. Congratulations on the sale. We live in Florida, but do not know your area as well as we know the east coast of Florida.

Hey Jon:

Yeah been coming to gulf side of Florida since 2004.  Finally moved here in 2016.  I opened my Venice office while keeping my agency on Cape Cod.  Makes it fun and with two great places to visit I'm a lucky man - or should I say Realtor.

Thanks for the post.

John: I sold out Stonybrook at Venice Estates section when Lennar was active right across the street from Grand Palm.  Had no idea you had set-up 'shop' in town. Venice sure has changed over the years!

Hi Norm/Sandy:  What a small world eh?  I still have my Cape Cod business with a great guy running it and I get back about every 2-3 months or as needed.  Decided to open a Venice office to see if I can work here.  Very different market and yes, Stonybrook is actually much different with a new section being marketed with 35 homes by DR Horton.  And yes several new develpments around the area.  Still a feel of a smaller town - we're enjoying the area.  Thanks for the note.

Very nice, John!   Venice is one of the most desirable towns in Florida.  The Gulf, the Intracoastal, the climate, the beaches, the Jetty, the proximity to Sarasota and Naples.  So much to offer.

Hi Roy.  Thanks for thinking of me.  I relocated to Venice, FL in 2016-17 and just closed my Massachusetts business.  I will focus on Venice moving forward.  So just getting the business up and running.  Have my first listing in Sawgrass coming Nov. 1.  I do have new posts coming but also using social media a great deal more these days, especially Facebook.  


Nice to see you doing well.
