My husband and I moved to the Fort Myers, FL area from New Jersey. Before our decision to move we had spent time vacationing in Marco Island and first became familiar with that area then we got to know the Fort Myers, Estero, Bonita Springs area while our daughter attended FGCU (Florida Gulf Coast University).
We made a full time permanent move in 2013. I did a full scale search of the towns in Lee County and Collier County (Naples, Bonita Springs, Estero, Fort Myers) as I wanted to move into not just a house that matched our needs but also an area that matched our needs and also our personality as I have come to discover each area and town has a very different feel, look and personality of it’s own and coming from NJ all areas were different then the areas I was born, raised and brought up my own family in, so understanding the areas of SW Florida became very important to me. I fully understand taking the leap, moving from the NE to SW Florida! And I encourage the need to deep dive into the areas to understand them. As a full time resident I have deep knowledge of the areas, neighborhoods & communities as a whole (where to find “real” pizza) and as a local Real Estate Professional I have comprehensive knowledge of the local markets as each area (Naples, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, Estero, Cape Coral ) have a local market in nature with differences in home values etc. and then there are the islands Marco Island, Sanibel, Captiva. There is a lot to discover here in SW Florida and I am happy to help answer any questions you may have so you can begin an exciting journey of discovering just what makes our area so special.
