Scott L. Sorenson PA  REALTOR®
Naples Luxury Real Estate

Scott Sorenson Realtor for Naples Luxury Real EstateI was born and raised in Minnesota, and worked/lived in Wayzata (Minneapolis) for 55+ years.  I played all the sports, but mostly golf in high School and College.
 
After high school in 1969 and then graduating from the University of Wisconsin in 1973 with a BS degree in Business Economics Accounting, I started my career in computer sales with Unisys. In 1976 I realized I was in love with real estate, and started with Coldwell Banker Commercial Real Estate (now CB Richard Ellis) and specialized in investment sales including all commercial real estate sales, but most of my work was residential multi-family buildings (apartment/condo buildings).
 
After one year brokering, I started buying buildings for myself - owning properties is the best way to learn what you are doing. Then as the brokering years went by and my buildings were remodeled, I learned how to increase income and - create appreciation. Values are created the same way in Naples by creating a detailed complete design or remodeling a poor design before the condo or home is sold. Proper design will create interest and will always sell fast and for more money.
 
In 1992- 2007 I developed a business at Prudential Securities, Inc. (now Wachovia Securities) where I managed personal Portfolio’s for individuals. My partner and I managed 200 million dollars and controlled clients complete retirement portfolio’s using diversified money managers and fixed income assets.  Our clients were mostly CFO’s, CEO’s, attorneys, and other senior executives.  During this time I continued to manage my real estate projects in Naples and finally moved to Naples full time in 2005.
 
In 1998 I started buying property in Naples for myself and shortly after for friends in Minnesota. Mostly in the Vanderbilt beach area buying beach/canal homes, and then after getting married to mimi (owner of Mimi jolie maison, inc.) I started working with her business of high end luxury homes – Full Architectural Detailing Interior Design Services. 
 
I know it makes a good team, to have 30 years of real estate experience (with 10 years of buying property in Naples), together with Mimi’s 25 years  in architect and interior design, on high end luxury homes. Her last 12 years in Naples just finishes off the background you want.
 
Mimi has worked and lived in Naples, working with most of the developer builders, on their models and with her client projects in their buildings.  This has given her the experience to know most of the buildings and developers - good and bad buildings. Mimi can quickly give you her opinion of the floor plan changes required, to make the property meet your standards.
 
We both live in Naples full time and enjoy real estate. Our clients can explain how we help, make your home selection and create designs to make living in Naples, far exceed your expectations. 

  • I know you will enjoy and appreciate our help in that process.
  • I understand the most important person in the real estate experience is YOU!
