Boca Grande - a hidden gem on the west coast of Florida!

During my travels at one of my favorite places this past week I visited Richard Taylor, broker owner of Gulf to Bay Sotheby's International Realtyon Gasparilla Island, Boca Grande Florida. We had a great conversation on some recent sales on this exquisite island. It is one of my favorite places to go, get some sun and relax. Take a look at a recent sale made in January, selling for $13,000,000!
