My Story... Your search for SW Florida property is going to be fun and exciting! Thank you for visiting my website! I would rather talk about your real estate goals than myself, but here is my story. It was early 1973 when I successfully negotiated my first real estate agreement. As a starving college student just out of the Navy, I managed to list 45 homes in my first 45 days, and sold twelve my first 12 weeks. Since that quick start, I have owned and managed residential and commercial offices, my own construction company, and a 660-unit management company. With 29 years of experience in SW Florida, I am able to supply a wealth of knowledge to anyone buying, selling, investing or exchanging. Our market changes dramatically from area to area and I make it my full time job staying on top of it. I thrive on negotiating real estate transactions, and like to focus my energy on ways to serve you better. Here are some of the benefits I offer:

Finding and Negotiating Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! Having worked in 7 developments for 3 major developers I know Bonita Springs, Naples, Estero, Ft. Myers Beach, Marco Island, S. Ft. Myers, and Sanibel Island. My team members are bulldogs at finding the right home at the right price, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter. I encourage everyone to answer 7 Crucial Questions before they begin their property search. Then together we will customized a plan to Make the Home You Imagine...Reality. The best part is I will negotiate at all times to insure your best interests are paramount.  

Selling a Home
When it's time to sell, I offer a FREE CUSTOMIZED HOME ANALYSIS like no other. Not only does it establish HOW MUCH we should ask for your home, but HOW WE ARE GOING TO ACHIEVE THE SALE PRICE! Over the last 46 years I have created a 44-Pt. Checklist to Market Homes Right! By tweaking our marketing processes with our sellers, we have achieved over $400 Million in closed sales. We start by featuring your property in the right light, then focus on attracting the right type of buyer. Showing your property "properly" is a must, but negotiating your purchase agreement is paramount! Then we open escrow with the right closing agent for you, oversee and negotiate inspections, keep tabs on the paperwork, eliminate potential problems and supervise the closing. I am a stickler for details and will take care of everything that needs done, from start to close.

The best thing you can do for your transaction is HAVE AN EXPERIENCED AGENT AT THE HELM! So, call Capt. Talley to get your transaction done RIGHT with the FEWEST possible problems!

The bottom line is you want your price, as quickly as possible, with the fewest problems! My reviews will reflect I can make that happen! Call now for a confidential conference at (239) 707-9393.

"I was trying to sell the house myself, and I was having no luck until DeWayne got involved. He was working on behalf of the buyer, but could not have been more available to me. He always answered my calls, or responded quickly to any messages I left. He was the very helpful with the paperwork aspects of the sale. He has such a pleasant "we can do this" attitude which I appreciated. I'm very thankful I did business with DeWayne, and I recommend him highly."

"Just a quick note to express our appreciation for your guidance over the past 2 years! I recall wandering into your office in Bonita Springs...Now, nearly 2 years later, my wife and I are thrilled with the home you helped us find and acquire. I told you the day I met you that I was “not in any hurry” as my time horizon was between 2 and 5 years. To be honest, I spoke with a number of realtors during this time (throw a rock in the Ft Myers area and it will probably hit one). Every one of them told me my time horizon was not a problem and there was “no pressure”. You are the only one who meant it! Our search for a place led us down a couple of interesting turns and at least one dead-end. But never during that journey did you lose your patience your steadiness or your confidence that we would find something. We grew to trust you as professional and feel that you represented us commendably. I wish I had a hundred friends to refer to you. We consider ourselves fortunate! Thanks again!"

"DeWayne made my home purchase in Bonita Springs and the sale of my condominium in Naples come together without a hitch. At the time, I was doubtful that a sale and a purchase in the same opportunity could ever take place. Somehow DeWayne made it happen in a smooth and effective transaction. Great job!"
