Ted has been a SW Florida resident for 25+ years starting out in Sarasota where he worked in on-site sales and marketing of lifestyle communities for mature adults. For the past 15 years he has resided in Ft. Myers continuing to do on-site sales at Shell Point. It is his straight forward approach that earns the trust of his clients, resulting in making him a top sales producer. Having earned a Masters degree in Gerontology (study of aging) from Miami University, he understands how the aging process impacts housing needs. He has also received the Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation from the National Association of Realtors to further his sensitivity to this ever growing, aging market – especially in SW Florida. He understands each generation has characteristics of its own – there is no cookie cutter sales approach. He takes an individualized approach with each client – educating as opposed to doing ‘hard sales’. In all cases, customer service is a top priority. As a mecca for retirees, the laid-back Iona area and picturesque islands of Sanibel / Captiva are the perfect setting for starting a new life free from the corporate world – a life where chasing the monetary dollar becomes less exciting than finding sand dollars washed up on the powdery white beaches of the Gulf-of-Mexico! His specialty is helping his clients learn how to downsize space while at the same time upgrading their tropical, island lifestyle. Contact Ted, the way you prefer – phone call, text, e-mail, through the website – to begin, or continue your journey of learning more about the island lifestyle that awaits you!
