About the owner: I grew up in Bartow, FL, which is about an hour and a half away. My husband is from the Atlanta area. We now live in Lakeland, FL, where he practices law, and I stay at home with our two children who are currently 4.5 and 6.
Why the Owner Chose Cortez: We purchased this condo because we both love to be on and near the water. Our boat is housed in nearby Bradenton Beach marina. You will often find us on it on any given weekend, fishing or just enjoying family time.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Our dear friends, purchased the condo next to ours as a second home few years ago, so we began visiting them. We decided that we too would like to have a second home on the water, so when this condo came available for sale, we moved very quickly on making a purchase so it didn't slip by. We couldn't be more pleased with this community and the people who live here. Having dock space for our boat was another big seller for us.
