Gerard Marino is originally from Long Island, New York. He and his wife Barbara moved to Southwest Florida in 1978, before I-75 was built and when Daniels Parkway was a field. After driving along the coast from Bonita Beach Road to Fort Myers Beach, they knew they had found their new home. When asked what he loves most about his current home Gerard says, “The simple, unassuming lifestyle that is so normal here.” He likes that he can talk to a client while walking the beach, fishing or riding his bike.

He specializes in commercial and income property, as well as fine homes, and holds the prestigious CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) Designation. It is what could be considered the PhD of real estate.
