Tod Bowman

IF HE CAN'T FIND YOU A HOME HE COULD BUILD YOU ONE.

Tod Bowman has lived in S.W. Florida all his life; he's a true "Native Floridian". Growing up in Southwest Florida gives him a wealth of knowledge about the various developments and properties which make up our real estate market.   

Not only is Tod an Associate Broker he is also a Florida Licensed General Contractor. He was an owner in ABS Engineering and Surveying Inc. for 12 years and then joined US HOME (one of the largest home builders in the country) as one of their Construction Managers. Tod has built numerous Custom Single Family Homes, Multi - Story Residential Buildings and Commercial Buildings.

Tod has the local contacts that come with over 20 years of working in Southwest Florida. Tod's training in architectural design, building production and product knowledge is an asset.

Whether you are buying or selling a home having Tod as your agent provides you with insight about a home or property that very few agents can provide. Call Tod at 239-994-9675 or e-mail him at JohnstoneTeamSells@comcast.net

Ready to help you with all your Real Estate needs 
 
Lisa has been a resident of Southwest Florida for over 26 years, and loves to brag about the distinctive beauty and sunny lifestyle of this exceptional area. Originally from Indiana and Wisconsin, Lisa left the snow and cold behind but brought that region’s famous Midwestern work ethic and its friendly and neighborly warmth to The Sunshine State. She instills it into everything she does, assuring home buyers and sellers that their needs are her own, and that no detail will be missed in any real estate transaction.

A graduate of Marquette University in Milwaukee, routinely listed as one of the nation’s top universities and renowned for academic rigor, innovation, and achievement, Lisa credits the university and her family for inspiring her dedication and commitment to serving others, as well as for her passion for continuing education in the many and varied facets of real estate such as buyer and seller representation, contract negotiation, local and national market changes, legal and taxation matters, relocation issues, investment property, professional standards, home construction, inspection and appraisal, promotional strategies, etc. Her clients trust and depend on her expertise and her unflagging commitment to excellence from initial contact to closing, and her continuing follow-up after the sale ensures lasting relationships and that clients become friends.

Lisa’s connection to the community is evidenced through her experience as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, United Way of Lee County, the Abuse Counseling and Treatment Center, and Laubach Literacy International among others, and as a former block captain in her local Neighborhood Watch group. Prior to beginning her career in real estate, Lisa worked in recruitment management, sales and marketing communications, and global supply chain operations with some of Lee & Collier County’s most recognized employers. To feed her voracious appetite for reading, especially about real estate and business, she also became familiar to many local residents and visitors as one of the friendly faces behind the counter at the Fort Myers Barnes & Noble store for over 13 years.

In addition to her commitment and dedication to helping clients buy and sell homes, Lisa enjoys spending time with family, friends, and her spoiled-rotten cats Sweetie and Mr. Big.
