Waters Edge on Marco Island

If you're travelling south on the west side of Florida, Marco Island is the end of the road. It's also the "end-all-be-all" for those of us that have discovered it. Well, the end of the road on Marco Island is Collier Court.  This cul-de-sac on the south end of Marco is a quiet enclave comprised of some of the best waterfront condos in all of Florida.  Down here you have The Boat Club, Nautilus and Tropical Isle.

South Seas East on Marco Island
We just sold a great unit in South Seas East.  In case you're not familiar with South Seas, it is one of the favorites on the island because of some unique features.

These units represent fantastic value for those of us that want a beachfront community but don't necessarily need a view of the beach.   The…

Marco Island Real Estate Contract

Let's face it, Marco Island is a great place to live. And these days competing with others who want to buy the same home is becoming more common. If you have not been in this position before, it can be a little bit uncomfortable and frustrating.
