Realtor Marcia Hawken attends the ARES BEAR Boot Camp for Luxury Realtors in Bonita Springs, FL

Full time residents of Naples often use these summer months to catch-up on what they missed during the busy, bustling snowbird season. Many try new restaurants that are often booked during season, and shop for those great summer discounts.  Personally, I like to hone my realtor skills during the summer months, and I recently attended an awesome eight day ARES Seminar Boot Camp at the Bonita Estero Area Board of Realtors headquarters. Everyone was great, and I came out of it with some amazing new ideas. Special thanks to Kerry Herrity, always great to learn from her.

Oh, and if you’re wondering about those new Naples restaurants I recommend giving both Cooper’s Hawk and Tacos & Tequila a try before our winter friends arrive.

Enjoy your summer!
