  • Before leaving town, arrange your needs into one list. Then put the things you simply want in another. If a property comes up short on your must-haves, there's no need to even spend time looking at it.
  • Know your budget. If you are getting a mortgage, secure your pre-approved amount in advance so we can eliminate homes beyond your budget.
  • Think about drive time to work or other interests. Traffic in the Naples area could be different than what you're used to, so tell me how long a commute you're willing to undertake.

Before we meet in person, I could send you my picks for listings we should see. Or you could already have some favorite listings culled from your own research. While virtual tours and photos are invaluable, there's nothing like touring homes in person. I can schedule any necessary appointments and map a route. We could visit up to 8 or 10 homes in a single day if we work efficiently.

My focus is to make sure that by the end of your visit, you can be rest assured you're on the right track to finding the best home for your family. Call me today at 239261244 x 650 to start your home search.
