Because Mel has lived in Naples for many years and served as a devoted real estate specialist for so many he is a great find for those he has helped. He will not only spend endless hours seeing that your needs are met you will realize that he looks upon helping you as the most important task that he will ever do. As I am able to call Mel neighbor and friend you too will know what it's like to have some one so devoted to help others. He not only is able to prioritize the special areas of Naples that will be helpful but as I have witnessed so often perspective buyers and sellers are always calling Mel back for his help as they evolve into the south Florida lifestyle.
