Preparing your home for Hurricane Season Before Leaving Naples
Last year we all got a small reminder of what Mother Nature can do when Hurricane Irma passed through. Many went weeks without power and we nearly all suffered some kind of inconvenience or discomfort at one time or another in the following weeks. While you can't control when a storm will make an appearance at your front door, you can take certain steps and precautions before leaving your Florida home to give your property the best chance of making it through the summer while sustaining as little damage as possible.
I will list some of the most common solutions and try my best to explain the logic behind the action and then let you decide which to try. Remember, every home is different…

Dogs are mans best friend, right? So when your having fun and going places its natural to want to go with your best friend, and here in Naples the beach is one of the most visited places in town.
As a Real Estate agent in Naples, I am asked for advice all the time by prospective home buyers, moving to a new area most people want to learn about the local area, local stores or schools for instance. When moving to new area facilities for family and friends are important right?
Those of you who love animals as much as I do will want to make sure there are plenty of places to take your four-legged friends as well as making sure that the home you are considering is in one of the dog-friendly communities. If your dog loves to swim, you probably want to…
How many times have you thought about living on the beach in Naples? If you are like most people thinking of moving to Naples, then the image that pops immediately into your head when you think of the perfect waterfront home is a beachfront property. An idyllic house with views out over the Gulf, waking each day to amazing views out over the white sand and turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Perfection, however, does not come cheap. Most of the homes on the Gulf are extremely expensive and out of most peoples reach. But even if you cannot afford to live right on the Gulf, the beach is accessible to everyone and can be enjoyed in many different ways.
Boating is one of the best ways to get out there and really immerse yourself in…
The joys of moving. Finding a great realtor in Naples then viewing homes, finally finding the property of your dreams, and then signing the paperwork.
But what if there was an unexpected hiccup in the proceedings? What if you found the perfect condo on the beach only to discover the HOA doesn't allow for pets! This may seem outlandish to dog lovers like us but this really does happen more often than you would think.
My wife and I love our animals. We have owned many throughout our marriage, and dogs have been an integral part of our family from the start. We could not imagine leaving them behind to move to a new home, it would feel like leaving a child.
We understand how you may feel as a dog owner that is preparing for a move to Naples, FL, we…

We are now at the one month point past Hurricane Irma and I am sure you like most of our clients have questions such as is the housing market affected by Hurricane Irma? or, Has the value of my home dropped since the hurricane? and will I be able to still sell my home in Naples after the hurricane?
It is totally understandable that everyone has worries regarding the hurricane, with so many people having a second home here confidence in our market is being tested. I have to say that I myself had concerns about driving home after the hurricane passed, my family and I spent the time in North Carolina, we were going to stay, but my wife was discharged from hospital three days before it hit and my disabled sister was also a cause for concern, so we left…
Let’s pretend, you have a multi-million dollar home, living in Naples some of you may just be one of the lucky ones that this applies
You have been living there for quite a few years and for one reason or another, now it’s time to sell. What do you do, as a Naples Real Estate Broker, my advice should be, get the best Realtor you can, choose one of the top Real Estate companies in Naples and let them do the work, after all, that’s what they are good at right?
Now, let me put the shoe on the other foot, I have a multi-million dollar client coming in from out of town, I have been talking to them for months, spent hours on the phone getting to know them, sent listings back and forth, exchanged photographs of their current home and really got to know…
I love Naples, it’s true I really love this little town of ours, it’s unique, has lots of character, a fabulous historic district, unique and interesting galleries, shops and some of the best restaurants in the whole of Florida. Am I biased? yes! As a Realtor in Naples I am often being asked what there is to do, to all intents and purposes, Naples Florida, seems like a sleepy laid back town and that is just what it is, but hidden beneath the laid-back exterior there are lots of fun things to do.
Hidden away sitting almost cheek by jowl is Well is Tin City, an older area of town on Naples Back Bay. Tin City is a collection of shops and restaurants, right on the water all made from tin. From here you can catch a boat out into the Gulf…
