Fact: Now is the time to get serious about purchasing SW Florida real estate. The prices continue to rise while the inventory shrinks. We do expect the baby boomers to come in full force over the next several years that will help drive demand even more. Remember that South Florida is the only subtropical area in the continental U.S. which is very limited considering that the affluent buyers from Canada, the U.S., Western Europe and South and Central America feed into it. Don’t miss your chance.

As Canadian clients who have not visited Southwest Florida for almost twenty years, we were naturallycautious about making an investment in a vacation home. We were extremely fortunate to have Ken O'Brian represent our interests. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. Ken listened to our needs and budget and isolated several properties that fit our requirements. He was extremely knowledgeable and able to quickly bring us up to speed on the evolving market as well as the and pros and cons of various properties. At no point did we feel any pressure to purchase. Nothing was too much trouble for Ken, and ultimately, we felt that we were under the advisement of a trusted friend. We are thrilled with our purchase and were grateful to Ken for making what could of been a stressful purchase into an exciting experience. We would highly recommend Ken to all our friends and family.
"Right from the start, Ken provided a level of professional expertise and support that we didn't find anywhere else. Buying foreign property can be a daunting experience, but we were impressed by the level of support we received in all aspects of the buying process from property selection to legal advice. We would highly recommend Ken to anyone with an interest in property ownership in Southwest Florida."
With the help of Mr. Ken O’Brian of Southwest Coast Realty, Inc., Naples Fl. we recently purchased a new home in Ft. Myers as our future vacation property. Given we are from out of state and country, our reliance on Ken was critical. We had scant knowledge of the area and Ken quickly educated us on the suitability of location versus our lifestyle, budget and resale value. Doing business with Ken by remote proved easy and effective as most of the work was done by internet in between 3 visits. He also helped with inspections for added piece of mind. With patience, Ken professionally guided us to a successful real estate deal and we have no hesitation in recommending his services in this part of the world.
Hi Ken ,
I hope all is going well with you. I just want to thank you for all your help and making our purchase transaction very smooth. It was a pleasure working with you. Have a great day.
Me and my wife want to thank you for your great work in our recent close in Naples, your professionalism is undoubtedly indisputable, finding you as a broker on the Internet, was probably the best thing, for our home vacation project in Southwest Florida.
We found Ken's services through the internet and upon our first meeting were impressed with his level of professionalism and sincerity. As we were not familiar with the Naples area, Ken's approach of providing a broad spectrum of properties and allowing us to come to our own conclusions made us feel at ease with the buying process. In addition, he was very responsive to our requests, both pre and post sales contract. We would recommend his services for anyone purchasing a vacation home.
Buying and furnishing a home in your own area is considered to be one of the most stressful events of your life. You would imagine that buying and furnishing a home in a different country has to rank as more stressful. What we received was the ultimate turnkey purchasing experience. We would highly recommend Ken to anyone considering buying real estate in southwest Florida.
I just wanted to say thank you for helping us find a vacation home in Naples. Our trust in you was very well placed. We were a little nervous about the process of buying a home in Florida, but you guided us through the whole process. You took the time to explain the area to us, and helped us match our requirements to what the various communities had to offer. Your patience while we kept asking for listings was appreciated. When we had our choices narrowed and we came down to Naples, your insights on setting our offer price let us get the place we wanted at a good price. Even on the closing day, you found a small issue, highlighted it to our lawyer and got the problem immediately resolved. End to end it was a great experience, and I would heartily recommend South West Coast Realty to not only other Canadians looking for a vacation home, but to anyone looking for a home in South West Florida. Thanks again.
we were so glad to have found you over your website. As you advertise, Honesty, Integrity and Knowledge, these are exactly the words that best describe you. You also provide excellent services that you should be very proud of yourself. We really appreciated the extra effort you put in for searching the right vacation home for us. You are simply the nicest and the best professional person we have ever dealt with. We know you will be very successful with future Canadians. We thank you again and hope one day you and your wife will have time for a patio dinner with us in the beautiful Naples! All the very best!
We are now the owners of a Twin villa in the Lely resort in Naples. This couldn't have happen without your help. I want to thank you for your professional services and patience. We are very grateful that you shared your extensive knowledge of the South Florida areas in a very honest way. Also worth to mention, your flexibility to accommodate our tight schedules. Along the way, I felt that I just didn't meet a real estate agent but I also made a friend. You can be assure that I will recommend your services to anyone who need to purchase or sell a house in South Florida.
Thanks again Ken.
