Venice Realty, Inc. is a local family-owned real estate company. The mother/daughter owners—Diane Shiell and Megan Hess—have called Southwest Florida home since 1990. They have seen many changes over the 25+ years with new growth being a constant along Florida's Gulf coast.
At Venice Realty, Inc., we are excited about the beautiful new home communities that are becoming home to many baby boomers and families, who make the decision to live in paradise—Southwest Florida.
It is important to know that even with buying new construction homes, you should have a real estate agent on your side during the new home building process. Since Venice Realty, Inc. understands that you can do much of your new home searching online, we decided to give you a portion of our commission in the form of a New Home Rebate.
We hope you take the time to learn about New Home Rebates before you start your new home search. We believe there is no reason to buy a new home without receiving a New Home Rebate from your real estate agent upon closing.
We look forward to working with you!
