Curtis Pickett - Agent
Not only do I sell property on Fort Myers Beach, I live here. And I am part of the community. The Chamber of Commerce keeps me busy working at many of The Island events, 4th of July parade, Taste of the Beach,....and on. I’m an active member of the Baptist church. Beach Baptist. Although I’m not Baptist and it’s the First Baptist Church. I’m also treasurer of the Fort Myers Beach little league. I did not realize running a nonprofit is like running a small business. And a beach bike has been my best investment. So if you come to Fort Myers Beach and “Won’t you be my neighbor?”
Selling real estate is the most rewarding job I've had, so far. I worked at Speedway, LLC (a subsidiary of Marathon Petroleum Company) for nearly 2 decades. During this period I spent time working in Finance, IT and Operations. This allowed me to understand the convenience store business from building stores to transferring their revenue to Speedway’s main account, and the million things inbetween. I also had a chance to work in Equatorial Guinea while at Speedway. It was there I met a couple journeyman who were doing underwater work at the site. I was intrigued, went to school and became a commercial diver. At Triton Diving Services, LLC I worked in underwater construction as a commercial diver. The majority of the time was spent digging trenches in the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. Trenches for pipelines - all pipelines have to be buried due to shrimp nets, commercial and residential fishing,...etc. Unfortunately, you live on a boat, a work boat, not a pleasure boat. And you are isolated from society for weeks or months at a time. Although both of those careers are rewarding, I never talked with the end user, the person actually receiving something from my efforts.
Real estate changed that, nothing more pleasing than visiting a excited buyer in their new residence. Of a seller getting far more than they paid out of their sale. Although, the combination of desk work and getting outside is what lead me to pursue a career in real estate. I've been coming to Fort Myers Beach for as long as I can remember - it was a simple choice, versus my hometown of Springfield, Oh. Haven't scraped the ice off my car windows since I've been here. Now that I've been in the real estate business for years in Fort Myers Beach, I'm confident, together, we can find your piece of paradise. Based on my dedication, experience, knowledge of the market, you can rest assure knowing that every aspect of the sale is being handled by an expert throughout the entire process of the transaction. I will deliver an outstanding marketing program and strong negotiation skills. Also, I would like to thank those of you who have offered me their trust, confidence, and business through the years. It has been a privilege to represent you in all your Real Estate needs. It is your referrals and gratitude that inspire me to get a little better, work a little harder, every day. Thank you once again for your business and support!
