Lee Van Der Heyde is a Real Estate Broker Agent with Starlink Realty in Ft Myers. Lee is also an active Real Estate Investor in SW Florida.
The SW Florida region mainly comprise of Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres, Collier County (Naples), Charlotte County (Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda) as well as Sanibel Inland, Pine Island and the Captiva Islands.
Nicknamed the “City of Palms” Fort Myers is not only a very popular tourist destination but also a popular place to own a vacation or a second home. In season is considered the period between November and March when an influx of the so called “snowbirds” from the northern states takes place – retirees who come to enjoy the temperate and snow free climate of the area as well as the relaxed pace of the area. With the beautiful beaches of Ft Myers, Naples Sanibel and Captiva it is truly a paradise. A huge number of properties with direct gulf access also makes this a boaters paradise.
Cape Coral is truly a boaters paradise with more than 400 miles of saltwater and freshwater canals canals. It is also called the Purple Heart city to honor the huge number of military veterans living in the city. It is still one of the most affordable places to buy and own a home and also one of the fastest growing cities in the country.
Lee County is situated on the west coast of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico, an equal distance from both Miami on the east coast and Tampa to the north.
The area is served by the South West Florida International airport (RSW) situated in Ft Myers and it also has several universities the two biggest being Florida South West College and the Florida Gulf Coast University.
Ft Myers is also the home of both the Minnesota Twins (Centurylink Park) and the Boston Redsox (Jet Blue Park) baseball teams during their off season.
SW Florida also provide great opportunities for real estate investors and as an investor friendly real estate agent I assist investors in finding or selling properties.
