SVN|KOVA Fort Myers Expands Specialties to Cape Coral

SVN|KOVA Fort Myers is pleased to announce the expansion of its services to Cape Coral with the hire of Jesse Marker, Esq. as associate advisor and Bob O’Connor as advisor, appointed to lead SVN|KOVA’s new Cape Coral Market Team.

The development of SVN|KOVA’s Cape Coral team is a result of the growing demand for commercial real estate transactions in this region. As part of the team, Jesse and Bob will focus on all commercial real estate in Cape Coral, including sales and leasing for industrial, retail, land and multifamily, as well as buyer and tenant representatives. The team will utilize SVN’s national platform of 200 offices and more than 1,600 staff members to increase their reach and gain exposure for their clients.

“Utilizing teams in the real estate world is the best way to create steady success in your career,” says Stephen A. Cunningham, managing director and qualifying broker for SVN|KOVA Fort Myers. “We are excited to add new valuable talent and expand our expertise into the local markets as we continue to grow and develop as a company.”

Gulf Coast Village Pastor Tom Hafer Releases New Book

Gulf Coast Village pastor and physical therapist Tom Hafer has released his eighth book to address divisive ideologies that are fragmenting the human population.  

Everybody’s Beautiful, now available on Amazon, carries a tagline of “One Love. One God. One Human Tribe.” The book discusses how loving faith communities can become fragmented, hostile tribes when the religious double down on divisive ideologies. 

“There are so many soundbites out there today that are meant to be divisive,” Tom says. “Everything you look at seems to be dividing us more and more, but it’s nice to remember the stillness of scripture that the Christian faith is not about battles to fight as much as it is a long journey toward inner peace and love toward our neighbor.”
