My passion for Venice Florida Waterfront Real Estate started at a very young age.  I caught my very first Mangrove snapper at age 7 and I’ve been hooked on the waterfront ever since.  This has literally led to a career helping people find waterfront properties for sale in Venice Florida.  Having navigated just about every inland body of water in Sarasota, Charlotte, and Manatee counties by boat provides an invaluable resource while helping both Buyer’s and Seller’s with waterfront real estate.  I can help a person quickly determine the navigability of waterways for different boat applications i.e. sailboats, yachts, runabouts, and pontoon boats.   Understanding distance and time needed to navigate certain routes and bridge height only come with experience.

Waterfront Real Estate has always been a limited commodity but never as evident as in today’s market with buyer demand at all-time highs.  This can make finding the perfect waterfront property a challenge.  Much of the inventory of waterfront property was constructed decades ago, and much has changed with regard to building codes.  With that said it’s important to know the nuances of what will be required of you should you decide to renovate an older waterfront fixture.  I can help you with this as well as can the local building department, and contractors.   Another hot topic of conversation today is flood zones and how to insure properties situated in these zones.   These flood zones also have an impact on renovating waterfront properties and building new structures.  The requirements and code are always changing and need to be researched closely during a due diligent period.  My job is to help walk you through this process so you don’t end up with any surprises once you own waterfront property.  Improving the actual water frontage with a dock or seawall is also fraught with regulation and permitting.  Waterfront real estate is a niche of the market that demands skill and insight from your agent.  Let me help you find the perfect waterfront property that can provide a lifetime of enjoyment.
