How can I help you?
This website is full of information for you if you are looking to buy or sell a resort home. For hotels and commercial investment property, please contact me directly, as I do not list these confidential properties on this web site. Owners do not want their clients and employees to know that their business is for sale. Also, I represent Buyers to find unlisted properties on an EXCLUSIVE basis. You will not likely find these properties in the MLS, Trulia, or Zillow, etc. This is part of the value I bring to my clients. Most of my luxury and commercial clients have a concern for privacy with regard to their transactions.
I am a member of National Association of Realtor's Certified International Properties Specialists (CIPS) network, Resort and Second-Home Specialists network (RSPS), Commercial Real Estate and Investments, and Sister Cities International networks with vast resources available to me and my clients.
