Destination: Naples, Florida

Naples, says Bill Earls, is a garden spot.

Not in the sense of jasmine and swaying palms, though the city on Gulf coast is abundantly floriferous; it's simply idyllic. A place, says the realtor, "where people who are financially successful decide they want to live, not ask “where do I have to live."

Like Carmel, Aspen, Scottsdale, "Absolutely pristine - a safe and easy life," he says. “A real escape."

The top broker/director at John R. Wood Realty for twenty-three years, Earls sells around $150 million a year. He knows this market very well.

Naples, he says, "attracts powerful people: CEOs, CFOs, entrepreneurs. Many fly in and out, running their businesses on the go. On any given day at our municipal airport the private jets are stacked like cordwood."

Most come for the winter season, when the days and nights are balmy, with little rain. "The only truly subtropical climate in the U.S. is Naples to Palm Beach and south," he says. "And Miami and Palm Beach don't have the features of Naples."

People like its small town character, he says, and "the lowest tax rate in the state of Florida."

"Is there another place in the country with as many gourmet restaurants?" he wonders aloud. "They exist to cater to the type of people who dine out every night and expect the best."

Those who might never ignite the Viking ranges in their half-million dollar kitchens.

Of course there's spectacular golf, he says, and pristine beaches without "t-shirt shops, little coconut bars, and rock bands." Along the waterfront are several five star hotels, private homes and intimately scaled condos, many with docks.

Quietly exclusive. A garden spot.

"Even after 30 years," he says, "when I travel and come home to Naples, I have a new appreciation for this city."

Manasota Key, Florida

“One of the greatest aspects of owning property in Florida is that it is an investment with assets you can enjoy,” says Tom Wagner, REMAX Alliance Group real estate agent in Manasota Key, Fla.

Conveniently park you private jet 6 miles from Manasota Key or fly into the Sarasota or Southwest Regional Airports, both less than an hour away, and enjoy free ocean access and water activities such as boating, paddle boarding and fishing. Explore the 35-mile stretch of pristine beach, and if you venture out to the exclusive Manasota Key, you can hunt for prehistoric shark teeth and fossils. Culture in the area is abundant. The art community is thriving and active, hosting art shows and music festivals. Residents can also enjoy luxury automobile shows in addition to fine dining and shopping experiences.

It is currently the perfect time to buy in the Florida real estate market, and where better to buy than a location like Manasota Key, where the natural environment is bountiful and the area is not people polluted. “Manasota Key is an overgrown tropical oasis,” says Wagner. “People who can settle anywhere in the world choose to settle here for the privacy, exclusivity and tropical environment It is the optimal escape from the stress of the usual daily grind.” The market has picked up quite a bit, and a large majority of people are looking and buying. Florida is especially appealing for luxury homeowners because there is no state income tax.

A premiere listing of Wagner’s is at 6310 Manasota Key Road. This exquisite home is tucked away into its own private Gulf-to-Bay oasis. “This home exudes the popular trend of casual elegance that many home buyers are looking for these days,” says Wagner. The main house and guesthouse have 7,444-square-feet under A/C and 10,486-square-feet under roof and private balconies and patios. The 6-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom main house is highly fitted with custom millwork, marble floors, stonework, custom cabinetry, multiple wood burning fireplaces and chandeliers from the original “Sands Casino” in Las Vegas. An in-ground pool is situated between the house and gulf and surrounded by hundreds of trees, wild bromeliads, ferns, wild coffee and exotic vegetation. The entire property is walled, gated and fenced far from the road, with a front row view of the Gulf of Mexico and Florida’s brilliant sunsets.
