Welcome to a positive Florida Keys real estate experience!
We are neighbors and friends; we met while walking our dogs around 2003, and were both in real estate at the time but felt like something was missing. Everyday, we would go out walking and talking about ideas, how customers should be treated and what people do and don't respond to. We found that we had the same work ethic, with different strengths in our personalities and styles that complimented each other.
After about two years of inadvertently making a business plan, we decided to team up and give it a shot. In 2006, Fishing For Homes LLC was born, and the rest is history! We have been selling Islamorada real estate as a team ever since.
When the brokerage we worked for decided to close their doors in 2007, a barrage of calls came in to recruit us, we ultimately decided on Moorings Realty, Inc.; their stellar reputation for good, honest real estate dealings, working "by the book", honesty, integrity, office of seasoned agents with a wealth of expertise made the choice a no-brainer. Add onto that the International business hub from "The Moorings Village", Morada Bay and Pierre's Restaurant, all filtered in by relation and uncompromised location, the stage was set. We were recognized for being Moorings Realty Inc.'s Top Producing Team every year from 2007-2014 in both listings and sales.
In November of 2014, an opportunity would could not pass up came, and we joined Ocean Sotheby's International Realty. The name says it all here; and with joining this team, we are very excited about our future prospects and the wealth of global networking and advertising for homes for sale in the Florida Keys that will be available to us here.
Together, we are able to provide unparalleled service to our customers. We pride ourselves on negotiating tough situations and working together to provide constant, clear communication between all parties. We are also members of the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce which allows us to give back and participate in our community and both of us have received the National Association of Realtors Green Designation and Short Sales and Foreclosure Certification to best meet the needs of today's clientele.
An island life awaits those who buy Florida Keys Real Estate. One of the greatest treasures of the Florida Keys is the most extensive coral reef system in North America. With the distinction of being the third largest coral reef system in the world, it runs all the way from Virginia Key to Dry Tortugas. It is the only living barrier reef in the United States. Ancient shipwrecks share the reef, along with an esoteric group of sea creatures.
The Keys are a tropical isle of romantic images. The feature film Key Largo was filmed here in 1948. Key Largo links to the mainland by the first of 48 bridges. It is a home to marinas, diving and snorkeling shops, and a destination to the finest saltwater and freshwater fishing. In the Gulf Stream are the large sailfish, dolphin, tuna and marlin.
Key Largo is known as the Upper Keys. Having a sunset cruise and catching fish for your dinner is an experience unique to the Keys. A casual lifestyle around your own home’s tiki bar is a favorite experience down here.
Islamorada is part of the Upper Keys. A fishing haven, it extends over the islands of Lower Matecumbe Key, Plantation Key, Upper Matecumbe Key and Windley Key. The Spanish upon first gazing upon the islands noticed a purplish hue and thus the name isla morada.
A temperate climate means the Keys never dips to a freezing temperature and the thermometer never goes above 100 degrees, either. Soft trade winds ply the islands like a velvet breeze. The Keys is truly America’s tropical paradise. Search Upper Keys Real Estate MLS.
