Look for agents who have earned the Certified International Property Specialist designation (CIPS) We have taken extensive training in dealing with international buyers and sellers. There are many of us in Naples and also Fort Myers which is just 30 miles north.

Certified International Property Specialists also have to have experience with foreign buyers before being Certified . . .

I would suggest you talk to a few experienced broker/ agents. I would ask questions like : How many deals have you done this year and how long have you been in the business. What is you international experience ( CIPS, TRC, all the international designations are OK however, any agent can get them and they are just paid designations and have no reflection on the agents experience). Ask what resources they have for international buyers. Have they had any complaints against them? Does the firm they are affiliated with have international offices? Remember, only a few percent of the working agents really make a living in the business and you do not want to have someone leaning the business with your transaction. I will be willing to give you more ideas if you contact me

Dear Autumn,
You need to have funds in a U.S. bank for a number of months (2-4) then you can use it to buy. I recommend you speak with your bank in Canada so the money can be transferred to their branch in the U.S.A. You also need a Visa to purchase here, but I'm sure you have that. IF you are paying all cash it's not so complicated, for a loan to a non-citizen it's a bit more complicated but it can be done.
