As the sun sets on another Sunday in Naples, you watch the sun dissapate in The Gulf of Mexico, There is an anticipation of the majestic colors to follow, or perhaps a glimpse of the legendary green flash. The familiar feeling of the warm sand between your toes that makes the worries of the day fade away. The gentl breaking of the waves on the shore can whisk you away to a quaint bungalow in the South Pacific. You imagine that are the first to have walked in this spot....it's yours.
For a moment, you feel as though you have the world to yourself. This is it. This is the extraordinary lifestyle of Naples, Florida. It's not something that can be articulated with words. You have to feel it, breathe it and see it for yourself. It's more than an address, it's a way of life.
This sensation is what grabbed me during my first visit here. Trading in my New England upbringing for the sunny south 14 years ago, I solidified my place in the development arena by, designing, permitting and later on consulting for lxury development projects for over a decade. I then transitioned this "know-how" into helping others who shared this passion for Naples, into finding their place under the sun.
With ten years of development experience, I know Naples like no other. My customers also enjoy the luxury of my finance background as a registered/licesned Financial Consultant, allowing me to assit them from a wealth management standpoint. Some say its my genuine "overachiever mentality" that makes me 180 degrees from the rest. But for me, "when you genuinely love what you do, the results speaks for itself".
