Highest recommendations!!

  • 5 of 5

Highest recommendations: we really enjoyed our stay. The house and surroundings are beautiful, enhanced by the kindness of the owners (three generations!), who made every effort to insure a comfortable stay. We enjoyed swimming, fishing, hot tub, sauna, and of course a boat ride up the river. We were charmed by how easy it was to feel at home, and hope to return as soon as possible.

This place has the most beautiful view! The house is spacious and extremely clean. The owner and his son Dave are very nice people to work with. We stayed for 5 weeks and only wish it could have been longer.

Florida Oasis

  • 4 of 5

This property was very nice and well maintained. The property owner lives across the street and was more then helpful the entire time of our visit. Our family used the trip as an early Christmas present and it was worth every second! We need to schedule another trip just to do the things that we were unable to do this time down. We would recommend this property to anyone!

Amazing luxurious house with wonderful pool and beautiful views of the river

  • 5 of 5

House is very spacious with all the comforts. Great kitchen with all the supplies. Pool with lanai was a huge hit with our two granddaughters who could have spent all their time there. Lots of inflatables and toys provided for the kids. Tiki bar overlooking the river great place to relax in the evenings.

Win Dixie close by for groceries. Also super restaurants within walking distance. Public beach at Yacht Club (5 mins away by car ) is well suited for families and also has a lively bar/restaurant right on the beach. Very easy to get to Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel.

Owner Dave couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Always available whenever we needed him. He even took us out one afternoon on his boat!

We look forward to coming back next year!

A Good Time Was Had By All

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the house, the value, the weather, and Walt & David. Better than pictured and so restful. A wonderful experience and one we will do again. It was close to everything. Really enjoyed Ford Edison museum, Wicked Dolphin Rum distillery tour, the Dek, Sanibel Island, Ford's Garage, yacht club, etc. No shortage of great bars and restaurants.

About David Wittmer

With the back ground of David Wittmer and John Sorenson it was only a natural progression to start up a property management company. John Sorenson performed property management with many lenders through out the years. We are both originally from Minnesota and hit it off very well and decided to partner in property management and have had many happy clients. We perform property management services on weekly, monthly and annual rentals. Pride and prosperity is our motto and we are proud to serve you the client! Looking to buy or sell one property or a whole portfolio? Need Property management? We moved quickly to identify, hire, develop and train a capable team to handle all phases of the Real Estate industry to move and maintain a high volume of transactions and management. With a team of professionals specializing in each and every aspect of Real Estate, property preservation and management, John Sorenson and David Wittmer continually earn repeat business and word of mouth by referrals in the industry. They continue developing relationships with buyers, sellers, investors, banks, and asset managers. They have Preserved, Managed, Marketed and Sold properties for a large number of institutions, and continue to work for industry professionals around the country. In the same instance I have also been able to complete MANY short sales as well due to my background within the industry. I often see my competition trying to mirror my strategies.Through every change of the Real Estate industry we have always been in the fore front being a top producer every single year. Covering Collier, Charlotte, Lee, Hendry and Glades county.

David Wittmer purchased this house in 2004
