119SERVICESUSING A BUYER'S AGENTThere is also much to learn and understand before you buy anything on Marco. If you have the itch to buy something, let me be your exclu-sive "Buyer's Agent" to help you make the right decision. As your Buyer's Agent, I represent you and your best interest at all times. There are several hundred Realtors on Marco that advertise hundreds of different properties in newspapers, magazines and on the internet. Calling each differ-ent Realtor and all the advertised properties can be very time consuming. My suggestion is to take the advice of AARP and work with one exclusive Buyer's Agent like me.My team will do all that time consuming work and save you valuable time and money, while you enjoy your vacation. Feel free to call me on my di-rect line cell phone at 239-592-3000 or stop by our main offi ce at 207 N. Collier Blvd - just one block north of Residents' Beach and San Marco Rd. We are at the corner of Saturn Court and N. Collier Blvd. The picture of our building is at the begin-ning of the article. Ask for Joe Charde, aka "THE GURU." You have nothing to lose. Marco is not your average island and I am not your average Joe. My 30 years experience is your best investment. Marco sells itself. We will help you make the wisest decision. The best is yet to come.4.9.12Joseph B Charde, Broker/RealtorDirect Line: 239-592-3000 Joe.charde@yahoo.comRealty Review... Continued from page 117View our website by scanning this QR code.
