FORT MYERS, Fla. (PRWEB) December 18, 2011
Royal Shell Real Estate is a full service real estate brokerage with offices in Bonita Springs, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Fort Myers and Naples.
Since 2007, the McMurray & Nette real estate team has been representing buyers and sellers of luxury properties throughout Southwest Florida with a combination of more than 35 years of professional residential real estate experience.
Both McMurray and Nette have been one of the top selling real estate agents in southwest Florida for the past 15 years. Over the past four years, the team has closed over $330 million in sales. According to McMurray they are on track to close $75 million in 2011.
With the move, McMurray & Nette will have offices in Fort Myers and the islands.
“It’s exciting to become part of a real estate company that is moving forward especially as the market is coming back,” said McMurray. “Royal Shell is positioning themselves as the leaders in this market. They have a strong history in real estate investments and believe in this industry. Trevor and I and our entire team look forward to the growth opportunities and expanded services for our clients this transition will afford us.”
McMurray grew up in the Fort Myers area and comes from a family deeply rooted in the real estate industry.
A native of Melbourne, Australia, Nette has lived and worked as a Real Estate Broker/Associate on the islands since 1992. He is a former professional tennis player and coach on both the ATP and WTA tours.
The McMurray & Nette team also includes agents Brooks Selby, Arika Bjorkedal, Janet Smith and Chad Reedy.
Royal Shell Real Estate is independently owned by the Roberts family. Company CEO, Larry Roberts, Sr., founded R + L Carriers more than 35 years ago. As R + L Carriers, Inc. began investing in the real estate market, R.L.R. Investments, LLC was formed and has evolved into a national real estate investment company. R.L.R. Investments currently has real estate holdings throughout the United States ranging from transportation and distribution properties, to hospitality, resort and retail properties. R.L.R.’s in depth knowledge of the real estate market and extensive network of domestic and international relationships provide marketing advantages to clients of Royal Shell Real Estate.
“They are a growing company and they approach the market as a team from Naples to Fort Myers which gives us a broader reach as well,” said Nette. “The real estate market in Southwest Florida has changed in recent years. Where we formerly focused on the islands and South Fort Myers, now we are representing niche properties from Alva to Captiva.”
According to Royal Shell Broker Managing Broker Don DeLuca, the company’s strategy is toward more of a regional reach tapping into their unique relationship between resort rental and home sales. Sister company Royal Shell Vacations, Inc., is the largest privately owned vacation rental business on the islands with more than 450 vacation properties under management on Sanibel and Captiva and more than 500 properties in Bonita, Naples and Fort Myers.
“Our goal is to enhance our clients’ experience in every facet of real estate ownership,” he said. “From Naples to Fort Myers and the islands, our brokers and agents can help our clients find their dream whether it’s a permanent residence, vacation or second home, investment property, property for future development, and commercial or business investment.”
“We love what we do and we continue to be focused on providing our clients unparalleled service as we grow with the Royal Shell team,” McMurray added.
