The Nautilus

Naples, FL (May 15, 2013) Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate is pleased to announce that Chip Harris & Michele Peppe of The sales team located on 5th Avenue South in downtown Naples, has sold the beach front estate at 3630 Gordon Drive for $7.6 million dollars. They represented the seller in the transaction. The 8426-square-foot home is in the exclusive Port Royal Beach Estates neighborhood. The centerpiece of the home, a dramatic 4-story spiral staircase, is what prompted Peppe to market the home as ‘The Nautilus’ capturing the attention of thousands of online views of the home over the course of their listing. When asked why the seller selected them to market his home, Michele replied, “You don’t win today’s games with yesterday’s home runs. Today’s luxury real estate market is a whole new ballgame and incumbent leaders are not keeping up with technology. The seller is very technology oriented and he appreciated our dedication to including the Internet and social media in our marketing campaign.”

The Coldwell Banker brand dominates the luxury market worldwide, while Chip and Michele’s web presence dominates the local market. Peppe went on to say, “ isn’t a grand slam, it’s like hitting a grand slam in every single game…what seller wouldn’t want to be part of that exposure?”  Chip added, “The last 3 beach front homes in Naples, in the past 6 months, have all been marketed by the Coldwell Banker Previews brand”!

*Presently there are 41 homes being actively being marketed in the Port Royal neighborhood with list prices at or above $5 million. There have been 15 closed sales in this community year-to-date, nine of which sold for $5 million or more. Presently there are 8 homes for sale on the beach in the 34102 zip code ranging in price from $9.5 to $19.9 million. Two of the 8 are located in the Port Royal area.
