Royal Shell Real Estate has opened its first office in Southwest Florida’s largest city — a two-story office building in downtown Cape Coral, announced Michael Polly, Vice President of Real Estate Operations. Royal Shell completed a major renovation and upgrades to the existing 9,000-square-foot building at 1105 Cape Coral Parkway East to create offices, large conference rooms and plenty of flex space.
The remodeling brings an up-to-date building to brighten the streetscape on an arterial road considered to be the “front door” to the South Cape district of businesses, entertainment venues and restaurants.
The new location represents not only growth for the company but additional job opportunities as well. This is the firm’s 15th office in Southwest Florida, with an additional office in Ocala in Central Florida and four in western North Carolina, bringing the total number of offices to 20.
The renovation’s concept was to create an environment that fosters creativity and collaboration, with the customer experience being top priority.
“We wanted to bring people together in ways they can be at their best,” Polly said.
The expansion comes after the largest and No. 1 independent brokerage in Southwest Florida recorded more than $1.2 billion in listings and sales in the first 10 months of 2016, and represents another step in the company’s journey of extending its brand and boosting growth in Southwest Florida.
“The new location will allow us to cater to the growing Cape Coral real estate market, and to better connect with the city’s re-emerging real estate buyers and sellers,” Polly added. “We’ve been serving the Lee County market for a long time, and this strategic move further highlights our continued investment in the region.”
Royal Shell Real Estate handles properties of all types, including primary and secondary residences, seasonal homes and investment properties, while its rental department focuses on leveraging owners’ investments for maximum return. In August, Royal Shell Real Estate brokers was named Best Real Estate Agency / Residential in Gulfshore Business magazine’s 2016 Best of Business Readers’ Poll.
Royal Shell Real Estate began primarily as a Sanibel and Captiva island-based company, and over the years has opened multiple offices in Lee, Collier and Marion counties. The business differs from other real estate companies in that they hand-select only the area’s top Realtors® to join the team.
