Relocating to Naples


Andrea and Joseph went to 10 open houses before they met our team.

Joseph’s job wanted him to relocate to Naples, and their family was moving down to take advantage of the opportunity and live their beachside dreams. But Andrea was frustrated with the realtors she had spoken to, who treated her like a number. She made appointments with realtors who blew her off or couldn’t keep track of their needs. She found herself repeating information to the same people multiple times.

Then, she went to a Naples Relocation Experts open house.

“Drew was the first realtor to really talk to me, talk to my daughter,” Andrea says. “He’s engaging; he asked me questions and really cared about finding the right neighborhood for us.”

He never told her how to look for a new home; he guided their process but let her and Joseph make all the decisions. “If we ever had any concerns, he would explain our options, and we discussed the risks,” Andrea says.

More Than a Move

Moving is much more than finding a new house; it’s integrating into a new community. This is where other real estate agents fall short and where we hope to make a difference in the market.

You can love your home and your job, but if you don’t feel connected to the community you are part of, you’re missing out on an essential experience.

We’re with clients before, during, and after the sale. We don’t just help with the transaction; we guide the entire relocation process. Moving can be a nightmare, and it’s our job to make the process as smooth and as quick as possible.

Whether you’re moving across town or coming to Naples from the other side of the world, Naples Relocation Experts will help you find a house and a community.

A Naples Relocation Expert doesn't just help you find a home; we help you feel at home.

Steps to Your Relocation


Let’s Connect

Before you look at any properties, we’ll ask a simple but important question: “Why Naples?”

What is drawing you to this area?

  • Is it work?
  • Are you looking for a vacation or investment property while you continue to live in another state?
  • Do you want to be closer to the family?
  • Are Florida’s tax rates attractive to you?
  • Or do you covet the overall quality of life on the Paradise Coast?

There is no wrong answer to this question and no wrong reason to buy here. Naples is a wonderful place to be for any number of reasons. But your reasons are important, and the “why?” behind your move will help us determine which area of town will be your best match.

Identify the right area

Naples is in Collier County, Florida. Within our city, you’ll find different neighborhoods with their own unique character.

Naples, or the City of Naples, is in the downtown district. If you want to walk out your front door and be downtown in less than ten minutes, this is the area for you.

North Naples is, as the name suggests, slightly north of the city proper. Families with young children are often drawn to this area for the fantastic schools.

East Naples was one of the first areas outside the city proper to be developed, so houses in this area tend to be a little older. Many homes in this neighborhood are in planned, gated communities, making it a great choice for retirees.

Golden Gate Estates is one of the most affordable spots in the Naples metro area. It is still largely undeveloped and a perfect place for people who want to spread out a bit. If you want a chicken coop or envision riding around your property in a 4-wheeler, this is your neighborhood.

Is Naples, Florida a Good Place to Move?

Moving is much more than finding a new house; it's integrating into the area, finding the perfect community and home, and acclimating to your new city.

Find the right community

Once you know the neighborhood you’d like to focus on, we will help you find the right community.

For retirees, this could be a gated neighborhood with amenities and an active lifestyle. These communities offer luxuries like tennis courts, pools, and private green spaces. In many of these communities, your HOA fees cover your membership to the golf club; you don’t even have to leave your neighborhood to tee-off. These communities are perfect for active people who are looking to build relationships with their neighbors.


Find the right house

Whether you’re looking for a secluded single-family home, or a condo overlooking the beach, Naples has the right property for you.

We also maintain several rental properties for those who aren’t ready to buy just yet.

In addition, the Naples Relocation Experts team will help you coordinate your moving day. Whether you’re driving your belongings across town or shipping them from the other side of the country, our administrative staff will ensure everything goes smoothly.


Help you acclimate to your new city

This is our differentiator. Other real estate agents are done with their job once you close on your home - not us. We want to see our clients live their best lives, and we want to help you do it.

You can almost think of it like the “buddy system.” Once you’ve worked with us, you are a member of our team. We want to “onboard” people to Naples and make your transition to the area the best it can be.

Whether you’re looking for a running group, a landscaping service, or a part-time job, our team aims to leverage our network and help you find it.

Moving is never easy, and the Naples Relocation Experts know it. We’ll be with you on every step of your journey, shouldering the complications so you can enjoy house-hunting. Finding a new home should be exciting, and we want you to feel unburdened while you tour properties.

“We clicked with Drew right away. As a native and an investor, we could tell he knew what he was talking about. Drew and Chanel took the time to get to know us as people and understand our needs. They did a great job of guiding the process. If we ever had any concerns, Drew would explain our options, and we discussed the risks.”

“Drew was great! As someone looking to buy our first rental in the area, he knew the things to consider, such as potential income and rental limitations.”

“Working with Naples Relocation Experts was fun. They were focused on our best interest and made the process easy. There were no surprises, and Chanel helped us get to know the area.”
