Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Hi, this photo is of me and my daughter just hanging round the kitchen together. I am a retired realtor and an active property manager. I own ten other properties in Iowa and love to travel in my 'spare' time. She is a lawyer in Iowa and keeps me grounded.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Gate:
I have visited every inch of Florida and my family has owned property for three generations. I searched for five years for the perfect place in the perfect location. It was love at first sight for me. The Siesta Key Beach is breath taking. The condo in Gulf Gate gets me away from the noise of the tourist attractions in just a few minutes. I was very lucky to find this place and I am proud to offer it to others to enjoy when I am not there myself.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I love to sit and look out the large lanai windows and watch the tree tops. This is a peaceful, kind of hidden spot.
