What Clients Are Saying

Lenore helped us find a vacation condo. in Naples.  She had helped my brother and sister-in-law find a perfect winter escape.  They love Naples so much that we wanted to join them for the winters.  Lenore found us a beautiful home and we are thrilled.  The unit had multiple offers, but she wrote the owners a letter that was very sincere and they picked us.  We were not even the highest offer.  She is a rock star to us.  Thank you Lenore.

Lenore was recommended to me by my neighbors.  She also lives in Autumn Woods, which was a huge convenience, since she was able to run over to help with many things.  I was downsizing from a single family home to a one bedroom apartment.  I needed a lot of help selling and donating items.  Lenore helped with many of these things.  After emptying out the home, she had her cleaning crew come in and they made the house sparkle.  I believe the home sold in record time because Lenore had open houses, advertising everywhere, including all social media sites and she was able to negotiate a full price cash offer.  I would recommend her to anyone!  Thank you Lenore!

Lenore Vitale is warm, personable and knowledgeable.  She is a true professional who listened attentively to our wants and need in finding the perfect home for us!  She knew how to find answers immediately and if needed to "go the extra mile".  We highly recommend her energy, expertise and caring as an outstanding REALTOR!


Lenore is highly knowledgeable of the Naples area, having lived here for so many years.  Any questions about easy access to schools, shopping, house of worship, freeways, will be answered with first hand, extensive knowledge.  She is quick to get back to you, pleasant to deal with, and if she needs to research an answer, she quickly reaches out to her team and responds in a timely manner.  Lenore listens to your needs and tries to steer you to the home of your dreams.  I am very happy with her services and you will be too!


Lenore Vitale gave me all the confidence I needed in preparing for the sale of my mother's home in Naples.  Her suggestions with home repair, legal assistance, home and market evaluation, and all facets of sales preparation were invaluable to my decision making.  Most importantly, she kept in close touch with me and showed a genuine sincerity and caring thoughout the entire process.  Lenore is a truly outstanding professional whom I highly recommend for home real estate consideration.  


Lenore did an amazing job guiding us through the process of selling our home.  Her initial price estimate turned out to be right on the nose.  She kept us positive and on track, giving us good advice all along the way.  When she wasn't sure about something, she was quick to get help from someone on her team.  I would recommend her to anyone selling a house!

Lenore was great to work with.  She was always in close contact with us and let us know what was happening throughout the entire process.  This home was my late father's and we were up north having to do everything on-line, which she helped every step of the way.  We were very happy with the selling price of the villa and would highly recommend Lenore.

Robert Guillette

I have recently sold a large home and downsized to a lovely villa in Naples.  My daughter's longtime friend and REALTOR,  Lenore Vitale helped with this daunting task.  She was there for me every step of the way.  She helped remove unwanted items from my large home, helped with painting and even added some new landscaping, which she did herself!  After the home sold, Lenore helped me purchase a smaller villa, close to my daughter.  I can not say enough good things about her.  If you need an agent that truly goes above and beyond, call Lenore Vitale with John R. Wood Properties.

"Lenore was involved in the sale of the home that my family and I were renting. My lease was for two more months. She helped the new owner bring prospective tenants to our house and was always so kind and conscientious of our needs. Lenore gave us plenty of notice before she brought anyone over. She was their tour guide (while we were in the house) and showed the utmost professionalism to us and those people that were viewing our residence. But the BEST part of our experience with her was the go-between, between the new owner and me. We left the house in move-in ready condition and she assisted the new owner by attending the final walk-through on the day of our move. We conveyed our sincere intentions of wanting to receive our whole security deposit back and Lenore hand delivered it to us!!! She obviously has a trusting relationship with her customer and she certainly does with my family and I. Thank you so very much Lenore!!!!"

Lenore was my long time Autumn Woods neighbor and is my friend. She helped me successfully sell my rental condo in Victoria Lakes.  It was a quick and easy sale with the help from Lenore.  I decided to sell my single family home in Autumn Woods and used her again to get the highest sale price of any home, at the time, in our community.  I went on to have her help me purchase a condo on the beach.  She was successful in negotiating a good price for the condo. and we could not be happier in our new place.  I would recommend her for any type of sale, whether it was under or over $1,000,000.  She can handle it with ease, high energy and wonderful professionalism.   

Mike Downs

A dear friend of mine who has used Lenore Vitale with John R. Wood Properties before, in selling and buying homes for her mother,  recommended her to me.  I sold my home in South Naples with her help.  There were many things that needed to be prepared first before I could sell.  Lenore helped with many of the items, including having her handyman repair the driveway that was cracked.  She even had her husband help with removing some items that were no longer needed.  The sale of the home was successful and was the highest price paid in my neighborhood.  Lenore then went on to help me find another home in Bonita Springs that has already gone up $100,000. in value.  She truly made the whole selling and buying a less stressful experience.  I would highly recommend her!

Lenore is a people person!  She is attentive to details, hospitable and professional.  She truly cares and goes above and beyond her duties as a real estate agent.  She is extremely knowledgeable and educated as to the Collier County area and real estate in Southwest Florida.  She won't just help you find a house; she will help you find your "dream home".

Simone Gartner

I met Lenore at a random Sunday open house and I'm so glad I did.  She turned what started out as an incredibly overwhelming experience of looking for homes, into one that was efficient and tailored to exactly my need/wish list.  Lenore is knowledgeable about the Naples market having lived in Naples since 1981, incredibly thorough in her work, responsive to inquires and always followed through.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends or family who might also look in Naples and I will absolutely be using her again for our next property.  

Isabella Bouchard

We were referred to Lenore by the legal firm handling probate for my in-law's estate.  Though we had planned on chatting with a couple of agents before making a final decision as to who to go with.....within 10 minutes of meeting Lenore we were convinced that she was 'the one' and within 15 minutes of that we had agreed on both a marketing strategy and a selling price.  We had an offer on the table within a week...and after a bit of negotiation with the buyer....we were able to close on the property in just over a month's time.  Lenore's personality, her advance prep, her energy, her knowledge of the area and her use of all of the latest/greatest tools for 'showing' the property, (including Matterport 3 D video) were key factors contributing to the above success.  Lenore went above and beyond...helping to arrange for 3rd parties to access the property, (while we were out of the area) and cross a couple things off the list of items called out by the buyer's inspector, (actually I think that Lenore roped her husband into taking care of couple of them.)  Her advise and guidance was spot on....  Were we to buy or sell another property in Southwest Florida....Lenore would be the first person we would call.

Doug Jones (North Carolina)

Lenore was always available and went above and beyond on the sale of our home.  She was very resourceful at every step of the sale.  She always kept us posted and advised us on the house without overspending.  She managed to involve other agents whenever things got tough to ease the transaction, and kept a positive attitude whenever any pitfalls arose.  Lenore even borrowed a truck and drove to Ft. Myers to purchase new hurricane shutters for the house.  We had thought we had them, but could not locate them.  She just solved the problem and we had a successful sale.  Thank you Lenore Vitale with John R. Wood Properties.

My brother and I recently used Lenore as our realtor for the sale of our late parent's home in Naples.  She was fantastic throughout the whole process.  I have been involved in several property transactions in the past and I can honestly say that Lenore went above and beyond any previous experience I have had with a real estate professional.  She consistently kept us informed and updated from the time we listing the property, all the way until the closing.  I would highly recommend Lenore to anyone that is looking for a real estate agent in the Southwest Florida are.

Eric Faulconer

I contacted Lenore to help me find a home for my parents.  They were moving from Orlando to Naples to be close to me.  I was having no luck going it alone, the market conditions were not in my favor.  Lenore was hired to represent my parents and myself.  Lenore took it upon herself to contact local homeowners in my neighborhood to gauge their interest in selling their home.  Within 10 days, Lenore found the perfect place and my parents closed three weeks later.  Lenore made both parties very comfortable and handled all the details.  I cannot say enough, how great of a job she did.  Truly a professional.  

Landon Miller

Lenore helped my mother downsize after my father passed away.  It was a really difficult time for us, but Lenore stepped in and helped with the selling of my parents large home.  She helped with decluttering, by donating items no longer needed, painting, putting 90 bags of mulch around my mom's house and having open houses until the home sold, which was fast.  The seller of the home my mom purchased after downsizing removed the garage refrigerator.  Lenore immediately purchased a new one for my mom and had it delivered.  My parents have bought and sold in Naples for many years and have never had a more pleasant experience then working with Lenore Vitale at John R. Wood Properties.
