About David Wittmer

With the back ground of David Wittmer and John Sorenson it was only a natural progression to start up a property management company. John Sorenson performed property management with many lenders through out the years. We are both originally from Minnesota and hit it off very well and decided to partner in property management and have had many happy clients. We perform property management services on weekly, monthly and annual rentals. Pride and prosperity is our motto and we are proud to serve you the client! Looking to buy or sell one property or a whole portfolio? Need Property management? We moved quickly to identify, hire, develop and train a capable team to handle all phases of the Real Estate industry to move and maintain a high volume of transactions and management. With a team of professionals specializing in each and every aspect of Real Estate, property preservation and management, John Sorenson and David Wittmer continually earn repeat business and word of mouth by referrals in the industry. They continue developing relationships with buyers, sellers, investors, banks, and asset managers. They have Preserved, Managed, Marketed and Sold properties for a large number of institutions, and continue to work for industry professionals around the country. In the same instance I have also been able to complete MANY short sales as well due to my background within the industry. I often see my competition trying to mirror my strategies.Through every change of the Real Estate industry we have always been in the fore front being a top producer every single year. Covering Collier, Charlotte, Lee, Hendry and Glades county.

Why David Wittmer chose Cape Coral

Amazing luxurious house with wonderful pool and beautiful views of the river

  • 5 of 5

House is very spacious with all the comforts. Great kitchen with all the supplies. Pool with lanai was a huge hit with our two granddaughters who could have spent all their time there. Lots of inflatables and toys provided for the kids. Tiki bar overlooking the river great place to relax in the evenings.

Win Dixie close by for groceries. Also super restaurants within walking distance. Public beach at Yacht Club (5 mins away by car ) is well suited for families and also has a lively bar/restaurant right on the beach. Very easy to get to Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel.

Owner Dave couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Always available whenever we needed him. He even took us out one afternoon on his boat!

We look forward to coming back next year!

A Good Time Was Had By All

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the house, the value, the weather, and Walt & David. Better than pictured and so restful. A wonderful experience and one we will do again. It was close to everything. Really enjoyed Ford Edison museum, Wicked Dolphin Rum distillery tour, the Dek, Sanibel Island, Ford's Garage, yacht club, etc. No shortage of great bars and restaurants.

Gutes Ferienhaus an idealer Lage in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

Haben mit der Familie (Kids 5y+7y) 10 sehr schöne Tage in diesem Haus verbracht. Das Haus ist ist sehr geräumig, in gutem Zustand und Voll ausgestattet. Es fehlt in diesem Haus also nichts an Equipment. Die Küche ist z.B mit allerlei Gewürzen, Kaffeefilter Kaffee usw. ausgestattet. Sehr praktisch, da man in der Regel diese Grundausrüstungen immer neu kaufen muss und in den USA nur in grösseren Mengen bekommt und somit nach 1-2 Wochen entsorgt. Genügend Badetücher für den Strand sind ebenfalls vorhanden. Das Haus verfügt über ein gutes und stabiles Wifi. Für Ausflüge ist das Haus ideal gelegen. . in 3 min. ist man auf der Bridge nach Ft. Myers. 5 min. in den Jacht Club und Strand von Cape Coral. 10 min nach Tarpon Point. Sehr schöne Anlage mit Boardwalk und gutem Restaurant. 30 min. für Sanibel und Miromar Outlet.

Genial ist die grosse teilgedeckte Terasse und der Poolbereich . Es gibt genügend Sitzgelegenheiten und eine Infrarotsauna, die aber mit den April Temperaturen keinen grossen Sinn macht! Der Pool ist sehr gut unterhalten und sauber ( es kam während unseres Aufenthaltes 2x eine Reinigungsfirma vorbei, die eben reinigte und kontrollierte). Für die Kinder gibt es genug Wasserspielzeug das vorhanden ist. Am Abend kann auch ohne Probleme draussen gesessen werden, da die ganze Poolanlage mit einem Screen abgedeckt ist. Da haben die Mücken also keine Change. Ein toller Platz ist die Tiki Bar beim Dock. Da das Haus direkt am River liegt, kamen auch mal Delfine auf einen Besuch vorbei:-). Die Bettmatratzen sollten kurzum mal ausgetauscht werden. Dies ist der einzige Punkt, den man hier als nicht optimalen Punkt anbringen muss.

David der Eigentümer des Hauses wohnt mit der Familie vis a vis. Wir wurden perfekt von Ihm betreut. Wenn was fehlte oder man nach Infos fragt, David hat die richtigen antworten. Damit wir nicht selber ein Boot mieten mussten, hat uns Dave einen Tag mit seinem Boot die schönsten Plätze rund um Sanibel und Captiva gezeigt. Thanks Dave. It was amazing.

Wir hatten einen rund um tollen Urlaub und können das Haus absolut empfehlen.

Florida Fun!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, boys 9 & 12 yrs, and I traveled from Michigan to stay in this house for vacation. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend it! The house is beautiful and immaculate. Beautiful bushes and trees surrounding the house provide a feeling of your own private oasis. While other houses are nearby, we never felt cramped or on top of anyone else. With the river and canal access, there is definitely a vacation feel with beautiful views. You don't have to hurry to the pool to get a chair because there is plenty of seating by your own private pool and dock. There is a Snook light at the dock for night viewing of fish which is pretty neat. The boys enjoyed fishing off the dock each day and while they didn't catch anything huge, did catch quite a variety including catfish, snook, stingray, and crabs. They had a lot of fun with it. They had the most luck using fresh shrimp. We spent many hours each day in the pool. The electric heater was wonderful to ensure the water was warm and never a shock. The lighting around the pool made swimming at night magical. The waterfall and jacuzzi made for a relaxing setting. It's probably time for the pool to be drained and sides/bottoms scrubbed as there was some discolaration but that water was clean and clear. There were tons of the harmless gecko lizards around the property which provided lots of enjoyement for the boys. There are tvs in two of the bedrooms, the family room, and oustide patio. The furniture is comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything we needed. There were kitchen gadgets that we don't even have at home! All the quality seemed good. David was really helpful and thoughtful in providing suggestions and insight to the area. The location of the house is great! The Cape Coral bridge to Fort Myers is very close and is free to cross and $2 on the return though you can choose other routes for free if desired. There are lots of great places nearby including: The Manatee Park ($2 parking); Lakes park (Surry rentals/2-6person bikes, boats) complete with ice cream shop; lots of shopping and great restaurants too! We loved the area and easy access. This was a great vacation and we would love to come back! Thanks for everything!

Awesome, wonderful, terrific, relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to get together with family. The home is absolutely beautiful and clean. Dave was terrific to work with. My grandkids spent about 6 hours a day in the pool while the parents relaxed. My son enjoyed being able to fish right from the dock. I will be planning our next family gathering and this is where we will stay!
