Donna Kittle celebrates Marco’s 50th Birthday having negotiated the highest selling price ever on Marco’s beachfront! She takes great pride in her sharp negotiating skills, 5 Star Service, unparalleled Comprehensive Marketing Plan and Market and Product Knowledge! One of the most remarkable parts of this sale is that Donna has now sold this rare penthouse twice! She sold the current sellers this developer ready Grand penthouse in 2008. They were so satisfied with her service and confident in her abilities, talents and integrity, that they listed this exquisitely finished by the Award-Winning Robb & Stucky 10,000 sq ft beach residence with her, trusting that she would get positive results for them. And she did that in merely 3 months! Donna has owned on Marco Island for 24 Years! Her first Investment in the Island’s wonderful lifestyle was at the South Seas Club which she contends is still the best buy on Marco for the all-inclusive amenities it offers at an affordable price! She still owns that little jewel! She now resides on the Beach in a larger residence! She admits that her success in real estate is a dream come true and simply a reflection of her Strong Work Ethic! Donna was raised in Boston in a small apartment with 6 siblings. She attended parochial schools and attributes her dedication to serving others to the Education, Values and Self-Discipline the nuns provided! She worked her way through state colleges attaining a BS in Education in MA and an MS in Counseling in ME. Donna had a very successful first career as Teacher/Counselor in MA, ME, NY, Taiwan and FL. She has always been independent, a self starter, and dedicated to her job whether it be as Wife, Mother, Teacher, Counselor & now Top-Producing Realtor! She and her husband of many years have raised three children: A Son who is a Senior Law Partner with one child in NYC, a Daughter who is an MD in upstate NY with 3 children, one of whom is going to Broadway in the lead role of a great musical, and a Daughter who is a PA in Neurosurgery and a passionate Animal Rescuer. Donna admits “Life Is Full!” and “I feel very blessed and grateful to have accomplished what I have and to be Enjoying Living and Working on Marco!” The Confidence & Trust my clients have in me have enabled me to reach a high level of achievement in an extremely competitive business on Marco!” When asked “Where do you think the Real Estate Market is Heading on Marco?”, Donna humbly replied: “Barring any crisis, I sense The Best Is Yet To Come! There’ll never be another Marco Island! It’s a rare jewel in SW Florida. I’m currently working with the First Fortune 500 CEO who will be investing in our unique Island Lifestyle!” “I don’t Sell Marco! Marco sells itself!! I introduce people to the Great Lifestyle our Island offers by educating them! The Teacher and Counselor in me is still at work! I continue to strive to make a positive difference in one life at a time!” Donna reports that our local real estate market is HOT, HOT, HOT! It has transitioned to a Sellers’ Market due to the Lowest Inventory in 10 Years! Since real estate is a Supply and Demand Industry, if Marco’s Inventory continues to decline, then selling prices should appreciate. However, nobody has a crystal ball, so only time will tell!
