Bonita Bay News April 2015

With the in-sweep of Spring, Bonita Bay and our resident neighbors seem as active and bustling as ever — whether you are enjoying a beautiful day on the golf course or relaxing on your lanai — there’s certainly something for everybody. While we see car carriers loading up for their trips north, rest-assured, the real estate market is thriving in Southwest Florida.

I am proud to be associated with Downing-Frye Realty. With nearly 800 agents, Downing-Frye is a massive network of buyers and sellers — seemingly taking the process through a fast-track of information sharing and coordinating the search process. Downing-Frye is celebrating a 40% increase in pending sales in March 2015 over March 2014 with 543 contracts turned into our office! So, if you are considering selling your Shadow Wood home or know somebody looking, please allow me to share my 30 years of experience putting buyers and sellers together in SWFL.
