As for the health of the multi-million-dollar luxury real estate market, “$5 million to $10 million homes have been selling almost every day since the Super Bowl,” said Bill Earls, listing agent for both Naples estates and top producing realtor with John R. Wood Properties. According to Earls, the high-end market is coming alive again following a dramatic election period.
Larry Lappin, co-listing agent for both Port Royal properties added, “If you have visited La Capanna, then no explanation is necessary, and if you haven’t been there, no explanation is possible.”
