We understand that knowing if an area suits your lifestyle can be more important than what the homes look like as you begin searching for real estate. For lack of a better term, our "Nickel Tours" do just this. Our agents know the islands, the neighborhoods, their amenities, price ranges and the lifestyles they offer.

Sanibel Island is one of a kind. With over 60% of the land held in preservation and public hands, Island residents live in harmony with nature. On any given day, it's common to see a wide variety birds, mammals, fish, reptiles and shells. Sanibel has one of the largest concentrations of dolphins. Bird Watchers "flock" to Sanibel and the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge to encounter thousands of resident and migrating birds. Sanibel's shelling is famous with one Worlds' largest variety of mollusk species living in the surrounding waters. Protected lands continue to increase as property is actively acquired by preservation organizations and placed into land trusts.
In 1974, Sanibel incorporated into a City to prevent over-development seen in other coastal communities. The Sanibel Plan was written to control and limit development. The City of Sanibel projects that by the year 2025, Sanibel will reach "Build-out" in other words the island will have the maximum amount of dwelling units in place.
