I’m Trevor, nice to meet you.
Looks like you might be thinking of moving to Venice Florida, and you might not be quite sure of where to land. Well, here’s my story.
I was born in Florida and being a native Floridian I knew it was time to come back “home”. My girlfriend Michele, myself and our dogs set off to find our home. We searched from Clearwater to Fort Myers to find the perfect place in Florida. We instantly fell in love with Venice and its small town charm but decided to continue down to Fort Myers and nothing compared to Venice, back we came to give it one more look over. We knew we wanted to be close to the beach and Venice having 14 miles of coastline we had choices. We stumbled across Brohard Paw Park, a very cool off leash dog beach, and the deal was sealed. It was time to sell the house in Charleston SC and go home to Venice, Florida.
Well, let see. I’ve been selling stuff since the days of golf ball diving at golf courses to make a buck. I can’t count the amount of times I outran a golf cart at the age of ten. Let’s just say, I’ve always loved a challenge. I’ve lived far more places than I have room to type. I knew I hated the cold having been living in Michigan as a child, once I was old enough; I was OUT! One of my moves was to Colorado where I opened my first wireless cell phone store, eventually I moved to Arizona where I opened more wireless cell phone stores. Arizona was nice but just too dry and no beaches. I had the opportunity to open stores in Charleston SC, it had a beach, it was most definitely a win. While there, I got interested in rehabbing houses. I decided to get my real estate license so I could sell my own houses, who wants to deal with a realtor, right? OK, just kidding. I decided to sell the wireless cell phone stores and got my brokers license. The name of our business was a no brainier since we loved hunting for shark teeth on Folly Beach, Shark Tooth Realty was born. We sold real estate in Charleston SC for awhile but needed a change, it was time to hit Florida, nothing was holding us down in Charleston and we longed for full time warm weather, HELLO FLORIDA!!!! We came here with the intent of rehabbing houses but decided we could do both. We wanted to help people like us who were searching for the perfect home, we absolutely get you.
When I’m not helping you find your home, I can be found almost anywhere outside. Combing the beach for shark teeth has to be my favorite. I also enjoy snorkeling, SUP boarding, working out, swimming, growing the most awesome fruits, rollerblading and spending time with our dogs and enjoying family.
With my knowledge of the area, buying, selling, investing, rehabbing and negotiation skills, your home buying process will be painless. I will explain the buying and selling process in detail and will keep in constant communication with you from our first phone call until the closing date.
I hope to talk with you soon.
