September Greetings from Canada!
I am away for a week for my husband’s and my anniversary in Whistler, BC, staying in the condo of one of our wonderful clients. Thank you Karen and Peter! If you have never been out here, as we had not, it is really something to see and experience.
As the weather starts changing to winter (before we know it), many of Indiana’s empty nesters start thinking about wintering in Florida. SW Florida is particularly popular for our Indiana neighbors (Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, and Sarasota, to name a few). We have been asked numerous times to assist with home sales and purchases in SW Florida, so we decided to answer the call.
Now our #1 Lakes Team in Indiana* with Encore Sotheby’s International Realty® in Indiana, is now available to our clients in SW Florida in partnership with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty® in Naples, Florida!
Kathy Howenstine has been a talented agent with my team since 2012. Licensed in Indiana, she became licensed in Florida in 2018 as she and her husband downsized. Smart strategy by the way—give up your big Sycamore Hills family home as they did and purchase both a condo in Fort Wayne and a condo in SW Florida. I can also be involved as your real estate advisor and friend, assisting with decision making and strategizing/negotiating, with Kathy leading the purchase or sale transaction in Florida. I have been going to the Bonita/Naples area for over 20 years with family there, then acquiring my parent's Bonita Springs condo in 2010, so I know the area very well. I will be offering complimentary accommodations at my condo for our Indiana buyers’ trips - with enough notice and scheduling availability.
Just contact me directly to assist your SW Florida real estate needs, and our team will get the ball rolling for you. We can also help you with downsizing back home in Indiana as well. Our team of Vacation Home Experts look forward to hearing from you and using this exciting new SW Florida partnership to assist you, your family and friends. We can also assist you with Relocations in all states across the US and abroad! *Source: 2018 Indiana Regional MLS
P.S. Both Kathy and I have completed the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) certification course – we are now part of the 1% of all 1.4million agents in the US that hold this certification. With this certification, we specialize in assisting the 50+ age group with the ever-changing real estate market.
All my best,
