My husband and I made our first trip to Pine Island in November, 1981. We were awed by the natural beauty and unspoiled nature of this quaint island. For the next 16 years, we continued to travel back and forth from Kentucky, only to feel more and more attached to such a peaceful paradise. In 1997, we purchased a condo in Bokeelia. It only took us a couple of years to decide that Pine Island would be our new home. So, like many of you, we purchased the lot that we decided we would build on eventually. Having moved to Pine Island full time in 2000 with our teenage son, we have realized the fulfillment of one of our lifetime dreams! I am very proud to have been listed in the Gulfshore LIfe magazine for 13 years as “Best in Client Satisfaction”. Customer satisfaction is most important to me. Since moving to Pine Island, I have been amazed by the sheer beauty of each sunset and the Eco system that abounds. The island is home to many raptors, including Bald Eagles and Ospreys. It is a haven for amateur and professional photographers alike. If you are looking to own a piece of Florida the way that it used to be, then Pine Island is the place for you!
