The lazy days of August are in full swing and to quote another song, we are hot, hot, hot!  Songs always pop in my head when I am writing my blogs! It's a island thing, I think.  Anyway, no worries. The great thing about Sanibel & Captiva Islands and our south Fort Myers area is that we get the sea breezes coming in during the afternoon to cool things off a bit.  It is our rainy season so we ...

The 4th of July is almost here. Happy Birthday to America – to us! We live in such a great country. We may get down but we are never out! America is looking up again. This past winter on Sanibel and Captiva islands was one of the best and busiest ever. Real estate sales broke records and prices were up an average of 13%. We welcomed many new property owners to our island. People from Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, Wisconsin, New York, New Jersey, Canada and ...

It’s April! I love this month. While the season is winding down, many of my northern friends are still here and spring is here too.  I am looking out the window of the John R. Wood Island Properties office today at a cloudless, blue, sunny sky. The weatherman says it is 79 degrees. San Carlos Bay, by the Sanibel Causeway bridges, seems to glitter in shades of turquoise and jade - which happen to be my favorite colors. The ...

It is March and the ‘season’ is in full swing here on Sanibel. We actually do have seasons in sunny Florida. This is our snowbird season. Lots of our friends & neighbors from the northern states and Canada flee the cold weather and come to Florida for the winter. Many of them own second homes here and others rent homes. The last few years have also seen a rise in visitors from the United Kingdom and Europe. All enjoy our sunny days.

I am a true Florida native and proud of my heritage growing up in South Florida on an 80 acre cattle ranch only two hours from Sanibel. Since the early 1960s, my family loved to spend our free time on Sanibel and Captiva, so I pretty much grew up here. After living and working all over South and Central Florida, my husband and I were thrilled to be able to move home to Sanibel Island.
