is what differentiates our level of service from the average real estate agent.
Trae Zipperer, Broker
Luxury Property Firm
Trae has been a top performing luxury and waterfront Realtor for many years in SW Florida. After earning his MBA from Harvard and several formative years with The ServiceMaster Company, he decided to follow his heart and return to the gulf coast of Florida to plant his roots and raise a family. A natural born salesman, trained entrepreneur, and sincere customer servant, the obvious career path for Trae was luxury real estate sales.
When he completed his four years of voluntary service in the Navy aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Nimitz, he literally mowed his way through college while earning Dean's List honors every semester. During his first year at Valencia Community College, he flew to Boston to introduce himself to the admissions office at Harvard Business School and purchased an HBS window sticker for the driver's window of his lawn truck. He worked tirelessly for his customers and looked at that sticker every time he left a customer's house. Those same customers would three-years later return the favor. What most people don't know about Trae is that his lawn care customers wrote his letters of recommendation to Harvard.
On rare moments when Trae isn't serving his buyers and sellers, you will probably find him somewhere wading along the mangroves searching for redfish. He's usually not alone, because his wife Rhoda will be throwing her cast net, his daughter Mattie will be searching the grass flats and sandbars for critters, and his son Kolby will be nearby making a better cast and catching more fish than his dad.
Give Trae a call and see why so many people trust him to handle their most valuable assets. You won't be disappointed.
