Conurbation – The Not-So Dirty Word for What is Happening in SWFL

As real estate development continues pushing forward in Southwest Florida, we get to experience first hand a unique word in the English dictionary. The word “Conurbation” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “a large area consisting of cities or towns that have grown so that there is very little room between them.”

Originally settled around the 1880’s both Naples and Fort Myers have grown extensively, primarily due to the draw of tourism. With only 30 miles separating the two cities, and populations and commercial enterprises booming in both, it was only a matter of time before Southwest Florida essentially became one metropolitan area. Now, we have the city of Bonita Springs and the town of Estero located directly between and the distinction driving from Fort Myers to Naples has essentially become one continuous residential and commercial conglomeration.

So, yes, conurbation is a fancy word, but why does all of this matter? With some of Southwest Florida’s major attractions of shopping and restaurants located between Fort Myers & Naples, such as Gulf Coast Town Center, Miromar Outlets and Coconut Point Mall, the area is primed for current and future real estate development. Couple this fact with Hertz moving its Global Headquarters to Estero and created over 700 local jobs and we have a winning recipe for real estate well into the future.

“Dear Brad,

We just wanted to say thanks for all that you did to make the purchase of our Gateway home a reality.
Throughout the entire process, we appreciated your patience. Because we were purchasing a short sale, at times we became frustrated. You always reassured us that things would workout and they did. We also appreciated your honesty when answering questions and concerns that we had. You also took time out to educate us on things that we
were not familiar with when purchasing a home in Southwest Florida, as we were new to the area.

We would not hesitate to refer a potential homebuyer to you or your company.

Thanks again for assisting us in the purchase of our home. Your knowledge and experience was greatly

~Kathleen & Gary Poppelriter
