Get to Know Dave Osterholt

When buying or selling real estate you need someone you can trust, places your interests first, knows the market, has a proven track record, and most of all gets the job done.

Ranked among the top 3% of Coldwell Banker agents worldwide in sales, Judy and Dave are proven real estate professionals in the south west Florida market. They are relentless in their pursuit of finding that right property, and they reduce the stress and uncertainty of today's real estate dealings by managing the entire buying or selling process for you. From previewing the properties for you, through taking actual possession, with all of the tasks in between, they will be there to help.  They are a team you can trust to represent you well.     

As true west-coast Florida natives, they understand the local market and have an appreciation for the Old Florida lifestyle of this area. Judy has been in the real estate business since 1993 and with Coldwell Banker Previews International since 1997. Dave joined her in 2000 after a 30-year career in sales with IBM. Whether its waterfront, near beach, or inland locations, their knowledge of the market is unsurpassed in finding the best values for primary residences, second homes or investment properties.

Judy and Dave enjoy their own Old Florida home and when they can get some time away from their real estate business, can be found exploring the waters of Sanibel and Captiva in their sailboat, the Jenny-O.


Sanibel and Captiva are really true island paradises. The scenery is tropical, the pace is slow and there is great effort by local community for preserving the "Old Florida" tradition of living. Much of Sanibel is a wildlife preserve, further adding to the feeling of a style of living from decades earlier. We know the islands well and know where the real estate opportunities are to be found. Whether its gulf front, bay front, canal front, near beach or inland, single family home or condo, we can find that right property for your piece of our paradise. Many properties are purchased as second homes or investment properties, and we can help in that market segment as well. Prices range from $250,000 for a small near-beach condo to $10,000,000+ for a gulf front estate compound on Captiva. We know both ends of the market and operate effectivly at either end, and the spectrum in between.

The adjacent off-island areas are also good, cost-effective real estate values. Known as the Iona/McGregor area, it appeals to the buyer who likes the island lifestyle with off-island prices, yet is less than 10 minutes away. There are the unique "Old Florida" communities of Coconut Creek and Caloosa Creek, the golf course-marina community of Gulf Harbour, and the river front luxury condominiums of Harbour Isle and more. We know them well and have listed and sold in all of these areas.

We live in an "Old Florida" style home, sometimes called Key West or Cracker homes, which epitomize the way Florida life use to be. We specialize in this arctitectural style.


Judy and I are Realtors in Southwest Florida and sell real estate on Sanibel/Captiva Islands and the adjacent off-island areas of South Ft. Myers. We're native Floridians and know our market well.
