Fred Spring

Fred Spring has been a Realtor on the Island since the early 80’s coming from the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania where he was a Realtor as well.

When he first arrived, there wasn’t even a MLS system just a group of Realtors sharing listings and information. Being an active member of the Sanibel Board once it was established he and his colleagues worked very hard to establish the Sanibel Captiva Board of Realtors.

He and his Wife Lynne moved here with their three children (Shane, Jarrett and Jonah)  who were very young the youngest at only 6 months . They all went to School here on the Island and in Fort Myers. Shane worked with Fred for over 17 years when he got older and graduated College.  He is still a Realtor working on his own for another Real Estate agency in Fort Myers but still works very closely with his Father Fred.  Fred and his wife Lynne lived on Sanibel owned several homes in the past 42 years. Lynne passed in 2000 and sorely missed by his family and community as she was active on Sanibel in many facets.

Fred has basically worked with the same company for almost the entire time and the name changes only due to the sale of the Company ultimately now being VIP Realty of Sanibel and Captiva at 1560 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, Fl. 33957.

Fred resides with his handicapped son (Jarrett Spring) in Shell Harbor Subdivision for the past 25 years after selling their Family home in the Woodlands Subdivision off of West Gulf Drive Sanibel that he and his wife built. Living on Sanibel has been a fantastic place to raise his three children and have the safety and security of living in a place like no other in the world. In his travels over the years, no matter where he went and mentioned living on Sanibel folks would say I know of Sanibel Island it is beautiful Island and we enjoy visiting and hope one day to own there.

He is thankful for all the wonderful customers and Clients he has met and helped over the years and cherish their friendship and loyalty. Life on Sanibel is like living in no other place!

Fred invites one and all to reach out to him even if it is just ask questions, buy or sell Real Estate or Just to Chat and catch up on what is happening .

Fred Spring welcomes you one and all to join us living here on the Spectacular Islands of Sanibel and Captiva.
