http://www.cbfloridahomes.com/cathie.hallett there you can reach all of the MLS site and get in touch with me all in one place and I would love to help any way I can.
I have lived all along the Gulf Coast from Sarasota down to Naples.
Having said that we have lived in Punta Gorda for the past 10 years and really enjoy this area the best. You get that small town feel yet you are only 30 minutes from Fort Myers and 50 minutes from Sarasota.
Punta Gorda was rated having the second lowest crime rate for a small town in Florida, only have Marco Island.
Punta Gorda has an extensive canal system that offers many price options that should fit what you are looking for. Please feel free to check out our website at http://www.mlsDetectives.com. It will allow you to search the local multiple listing service like an agent. We are also available to set you up on a search as well.
No other place (in the country, as far as we're concerned), offers a boating environment at as reasonable a cost as Punta Gorda Isles and it's "sister" community, Burnt Store Isles (a bit further south).

One nice things about Punta Gorda Isles is that the City of Punta Gorda maintains the seawalls. I would be happy to help you find a home or answer any other questions you may have. I can also send you information about purchasing a home on a waterfront property. Keep in mind that flood insurance will be required if you are purchasing a home with a mortgage.

PGI (Punta Gorda Isles) is a number of different developments in the city of Punta Gorda. The most well known section is the area west of downtown where development in the late 1960's began the dredging of canals to create the absolute best boating community in all of Florida. Canals are wide, well maintained and have great access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico.
Other sections of PGI include the Burnt Store developments (BSI has canals, other sections are dry) and Deep Creek, a large off water development.
Please take a look at our website where you can search all of Punta Gorda and especially the waterfront areas of Punta Gorda Isles.
I have a great deal of experience boating and sailing in this area and would be happy to help you find a home to fit your needs. Feel free to email or call if yo have questions about the area or boating access of any home.
