First of all, why sell real estate at all...The love of learning, meeting people, making a difference in people's lives are just a few of the reasons people get into this business. If you're a lover of freedom and flexibility then real estate may be for you. The reason most people get into real estate, you make your plans based on what you want to do and accomplish daily. Real Estate is one of those professions that the harder you work and focus, the more success you'll have.
Now, listing and selling real estate in Southwest Florida is entirely different than selling, let's say, in a northern state like Ohio. Given that's my birthplace and where I first started my real estate career, I now know the difference. Selling in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port and Englewood Florida is about great weather, sunshine and people that are happy to be here. We rarely have a cloudy day in Southwest Florida. People coming here to investigate their next step in life, along with a hobby of fishing in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port and Englewood, golfing in the same areas, snorkeling, kayaking, or just "beaching" it on their own time love this area. We mostly sell homes during the sunshine of the day as most folks coming here on vacation and to look during the day. In the north, most folks are working during the day so they need to look in the evenings and on the weekends which doesn't give much time in bright daylight hours.
In Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and Englewood because of the waterways, whether saltwater or freshwater, an agent can enjoy the boating aspect of selling a home from their boat. In one of our northern states how often does that happen? It happens often here so customers can see their future home from the water. I also know many real estate agents in the Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port and Englewood marketplace that sell homes from a golf course. Once a golfer gets a taste of our beautiful courses in Southwest Florida, they are usually ready to make their next home on a golf course.
If you are contemplating making the next move of your life to the Southwest Florida area, and also starting a new career in real estate in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North or Englewood, then consider Sunstar-Morris to help you make that decision and the move much easier. I did and have never regretted it.
