Referral for Naples, FL - must know about modern architecture

Asked by Tobias Kaiser, Cips, Fort Lauderdale, FL Wed Sep 21, 2011

I just received an inquiry for Naples, FL, and would like to refer it to a colleague who knows modern architecture. (I'm a modern home specialist in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Palm Beach area in FL).

Please contact me if you are specialised in (or at the very minimum very knowledgeable about) modern architecture in Naples.

Many thanks and all the best,

Tobias, structure wise there is not much 'modern' in Naples, but how individuals treat the interior of the residence. Naples tend to be more conservative, hence the architecture. That said if I know Modern and the concept of modern and have a grand architect who did a very modern house in the Pine Ridge Estate area that was featured in a modern (can't remember the mag's name) mag, and even , I believe, received awards for it. So let me know if that works for you...KathyBC @ 800-448-3411 ext 601

Thanks to all of you for your responses - this is networking at it's best, isn't it?

I have friends in Naples but don't it well... though good enough to realize that there is very very little in terms of modern architecture inventory (in contrast to the "other end" of Alligator Alley: so far I documented 2065 modern homes here). So I can imagine how you smiled when you read my inquiry.

Again, many thanks for responding,

Tobias, I smiled at your email. Modern architecture and Naples Homes are almost mutually exclusive terms. There are a few "contempary" homes in some upscale areas, but I don't think "modern" has found its way here yet. Too bad, because I personally like the style. I'd be happy to help in any way I can.

I have been a licensed sales agent since 1994 and a member of the Naples Area Board of Realtors. This has been my home since 1969 and I have seen many changes in size and shapes of homes over this time. Each neighborhood seems to foster similar architecture. Old Naples and Lake Park areas each have seen older homes being removed and new larger homes being built. Homes in new subdivisions have their own standards and requirements. Homes in older subdivisions have few requirements. My listing in Gulf Shore subdivision has fewer requirements and more variation in homes. This listing is $274,000 less than the next home in Naples (10 minutes drive to beach), no bridges, seawall, big boat lift, and only fifteen minutes from the dock to the Gulf of Mexico. Listing inventory has been going down over the last few months but there are many resale homes still for sale. I would be happy to work with one of your clients.

Tobias, I am nothing if not honest so will tell you that there is very little "Modern" architecture here in Naples. But what I will do for your referral it show them what is currently available or if they would like a new home built will introduce them to an architect who will meet their standards. Look forward to hearing further from you.

Does your referral have a time line, when will they be in Naples?
