John Tobe Joins The Team At Gulf Coast International Properties®
NAPLES, FLORIDA | – Gulf Coast International Properties® (GCIP) is pleased to announce John Tobe, Realtor, has joined the firm.
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, John has been visiting Naples since 1972. An entrepreneur at heart, John has worked in many different industries throughout his 40-year career.

Within four years, he purchased the business, and then transformed it into Papa John’s Print Network, a $10 million print operation with more than 100 employees. He later went on to sell the company and become a Vice President within it, learning the ins and outs of the commercial real estate industry.
In 1998, John returned to his roots and founded a leading print and direct marketing firm. For 17 years, John grew the business into one of the nation’s largest direct mail companies before selling to Private Equity in 2015 and then again in 2018 when he retired.
John lived in Louisville for 33 years but called Naples his second home after buying a vacation property in 2002.
