As a luxury homes consultant focusing on the Paradise Coast, he is intimately familiar with the communities within the Marco, Naples, Bonita Springs, Estero and Ft. Myers Beach markets. Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, his parents “discovered” this area during a business trip/vacation in 1969 and it became the family’s second home. Over decades and multiple family investments in the Gulf Coast area, Brent has a long-time and first-hand knowledge of Southwest Florida real estate.
 
Brent’s customers always feel secure with his ethical, professional and process-driven results. Accordingly, he has earned the reputation as a trusted, proactive adviser.

And with a diverse background of brokerage, property management, business ownership, marketing and public relations, plus a Midwestern work ethic, he has a track record of successfully helping customers navigate the often complicated real estate process -- along with the nuances that vary by state.
