Bob & Catherine - Pine Island Realty Testimonials

How did you find Pine Island?

Both: We have been visiting parents in Florida over the years mostly Cape Coral and Naples.  When I was younger (1970s) my Mom and Dad would buy their seafood right off the boats in Matlacha.  Good memories.

What Made you choose St James City?

Both: Pine Island seems like the ‘last outpost’ for Old Florida; mostly farms and fishermen with a some really cool Bars.  We liked what we are close to in St James City, just a boat ride away from so many wonderful places. 

My experience working with Pine Island Realty was:

Both: Very positive.  Mike was very good to work with and knew just what to show us.  Local knowledge was welcomed since we didn’t know the waters/canals like Mike did.
