My name is Keely Smith I have been a Florida State licensed Realtor for over 8 years and am the Broker/Owner of Churchill Real Estate located in Fort Myers.
I first started coming to the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area over 20 years ago on family holidays to visit close relatives who live in Cape Coral. Like many fellow Brits, my husband and I got the urge to purchase a second home in the sunshine for us to enjoy and maybe make a little money on as an investment. In 2001 we took the plunge and purchased a property on Fort Myers Beach which we manage as a vacation rental home.
In 2004 we left the UK and relocated to the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area full time. Once a resident, I noticed there was a gap in the market for a Realtor offering impartial, honest advice on what it really takes financially to own a second home and what kind of property makes a successful vacation rental.
To talk sensibly to someone who has been there and done it, experienced the pitfalls and the true joy of owning their own piece of paradise, please contact me below or call me on 239 699 0255.
