Fátima is also a syndicated blogger featured in the Naples Daily News’ Vista Semanal. As a trusted contributor, she brings relevant and timely reasoned analysis of Naples market area conditions affecting real estate to professionals, analysts, investors, buyers and sellers.

Additionally, she offers a network of resources to assist international clients with visa requirements, tax implications and planning.
After five years as an international property specialist, advising clients and selling residential real estate in the United Kingdom, Fátima relocated to Naples. While in the UK she was honored to receive the Top Sales Performance Award from Kier Homes, the largest builder in the country for two consecutive years. Later selected as a consultant with Hamptons International, she formulated recommendations for developers of multimillion-dollar residential developments in London.

Amanda Carey (ABR, CIPS)
Amanda specializes in the Naples and Bonita Springs areas and has obtained her ABR, ‘Accredited Buyers Agent’ and CIPS ‘Certified International Property Specialist’ real estate designations. She has extensive experience working with British and Canadian clients, and is particularly accustomed to “translating property jargon” in order for customers to understand the differences in buying real estate in Florida, as opposed to their home countries.
Amanda has successfully executed sales within the short sale and foreclosure arena as well as beachfront properties and golf community residences. She has been the recipient of performance awards from Downing-Frye Realty, Inc. in 2008, and 2010-2013.
Prior to working in real estate, Amanda spent 17 years as retail buyer for two British conglomerate retailers and worked and lived in Hong Kong and London. Her business acumen, strategic planning and customer service skills have served her well in identifying client needs, negotiating on their behalf and ultimately satisfying her clients’ quest to find a home that suits their lifestyle.
Amanda grew up in Yorkshire, England, but has been a full-time Naples resident and real estate professional since relocating from Hong Kong to Florida in 2003. While she enjoys travelling to various parts of the world, she misses her chocolate labs during long stints away from home. Amanda is a pet friendly REALTOR®!
