Dusty Gardner has held his license with Schooner Bay Realty, Inc. since 2004 and became the brokerage's Director of Operations in 2010. Dusty along with the firm’s other managing partners has serviced the Southwest Florida region since 1975. Their company is deeply rooted in the local community and through decades of active civic participation and leadership, they have become one of the most recognized and respected brokerages in the region. As a result, they are uniquely capable of offering a superior local expertise to both individual and corporate clientele. Adding greater depth to Schooner Bay’s services Dusty and partners began Schooner Bay Builders in 2018 offering affordable residential homes uniquely designed to maximize the SW Florida lifestyle. Today Schooner Bay Builders offers a wide array of floorplans to accommodate the general consumer as well as delivering volume production to meet the needs of several investment funds they're associated with. Additionally, Dusty and his team actively acquire, broker, and develop unimproved parcels throughout Lee County. In fact, the team is thrilled to have recently transferred the remaining lots within one of Southwest Florida’s premier communities Riverside Avenue Villas. They also recently oversaw the selling of roughly 196 acres of riverfront property to Conservation 2020 for the purposes of preservation and community recreation. Dusty believes that great teams achieve great success and his group lives by the mantra Together Everyone Achieves More (T.E.A.M). In acknowledgment of that principle, these undertakings are made possible by not only the managing partners of Schooner Bay but also by their support staff of employees and the 60 plus licensed agents that call Schooner Bay home! Their staff size allows for management of a large volume with quality service, and rapid response times to their client's needs.
