Discover the Downing-Frye Difference….

Are you ready for a real estate career in Naples, Bonita Springs, Estero or Marco Island, Florida?

This is the right place!

The Downing-Frye name has been in Southwest Florida for over 50 years, with multiple locations in Naples, Bonita Springs and Marco Island.

Why we’re different.
Downing-Frye is a large company, but it’s run like a small family firm. We have a friendly
work atmosphere that has attracted over 100 real estate professionals every year for the
last 15 years.

Agents learn more with us – and they earn more with us.

  • With Downing-Frye, agents receive 100% commissions AND enjoy traditional
    brokerage services (like training) most typically offered by companies with split
    commission plans.
  • Agents have great resources and the best opportunity to earn more income faster.

Wide reach. Maximum Exposure.

  • We maintain membership in the Naples Area Board of REALTORS®, Bonita
    Springs Estero Association of REALTORS®, Marco Island Area Association
    of REALTORS®, Miami Association of REALTORS©, and Punta Gorda-Port
    Charlotte-North Port Association of REALTORS®, MLS, Inc.

Our resources create opportunities.

  • Downing-Frye’s agents closed more sales over the last decade than any other firm in
    Southwest Florida.
  • Our huge annual sales volume (typically over one billion) has a lot to do with our
    vast listing inventory of over 1,000 properties. About one out of every four listings
    in Southwest Florida is a Downing-Frye listing.

Join our success - we're second to none.
Since 2000, our agents have participated in over 56,000 closed transactional sides.
That's a lot of commission checks.
