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.

SHADOW WOOD RESIDENTS RAISE OVER $285,000 FOR NONPROFIT ORGS
Record-Setting Fundraising in 2015
170 golfers and 210 gala attendees raised funds for seven local charities at the 12th annual Shadow Wood Charitable Foundation fundraiser last month. The evening gala brought in $285,000 — an increase of more than $70,000 over last year’s fundraiser.
According to the Shadow Wood Charitable Foundation, the funds will be dispersed to the foundation’s supported charities, including Bonita Springs Assistance Office, Cafe of Life, Feeding the 5000, Friends of The Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, Interfaith Charities of South Lee County and New Horizons of Southwest Florida.
“This is the third consecutive year we’ve partnered with these charities to help families in need in our local community,” said Shadow Wood member and foundation trustee Bill Lentz. “This year’s tournament raised more than $70,000 from last year and we could not have done it without our dedicated members who generously give of their time as volunteers and provide financial support to these worthy organizations.”
The evening gala featured silent and live auctions, including top bids for two tickets to the Grammy Awards, tickets to The Ellen DeGeneres Show and a flight to Key West.
The Shadow Wood Charitable Foundation, Inc., founded in 2012, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is committed to supporting charitable programs of nonprofit organizations that serve residents in need in southwest Florida. Visit the website here.
