Florida's school districts are county wide systems, which is very different from most other locations. If education is a priority, consider investigating Sarasota County Schools. I believe you'll find they compare very well with other Florida districts.

Additionally, there are some wonderful home values and opportunities in southern Sarasota County. This location is very desirable because of it's proximity to beaches, boating, and a host of other recreational activities. There are also three professional sports team within an hours drive of central Sarasota County.

If you would like to find out more about this very desirable location or the buying process, we would be happy to answer your questions.

Best wishes with your search.

My family relocated to Naples, Florida from Connecticut because of the beautiful weather, world-class beaches and outstanding schools. My two children have attended Collier County Public schools and have received a first class education. There are also excellent private schools, if you prefer. My partner and I are well-versed in both new and existing construction as well as rentals. If you would like more information on where to rent or buy in Naples, please feel free to contact me at or call me direct at (239) 253-2417.

Naples looks beautiful. I had a lifelong friend that also moved to Naples from CT and she has nothing but good things to say about it. However, I feel like the Lutz and Land o Lakes area seems to get more bang for your buck in houses.
