Real estate consultant Corey Cabral is the best!
When we were considering the purchase of a new golf community home in Naples Florida in Fall 2018, good friends, who had recently worked with Corey to buy their new home in Naples , highly recommended him.
His knowledge of the Naples home market, his sometimes brutal honesty and his integrity , his extensive background in construction, and his ability to keep us on-track facilitated our search.
We had not bought a house in 25 years so we needed all the information we could get. Corey helped us look beyond other people’s style and furnishings to see the beauty and value of the basic home.
We live in upstate NY and Corey kept us up to date on what was on the market, via computer. His guidance was invaluable. We traveled to FL four times over six months and looked at many homes. When we finally found what we wanted in a golf course estate section of Pelican Marsh, his advice and price-negotiating skills saved us thousands of dollars. All our contractual procedures and our closing went smoothly, thanks to Corey’s network of professionals. He recommended a contractor to do our renovations and we are thrilled with the contractor’s visions and work.
Corey has become a trusted friend we can rely on for advice and guidance, even after our closing. He always has our best interests at heart. He has gone above and beyond in all aspects of our dealings and we cannot thank him enough for all he has done.
We highly recommend him for all your real estate needs.

We contacted Corey Cabral through the internet, as we were doing a search for Naples luxury real estate. We came across his very informative website for Naples real estate, contacted him and we shared with Corey all of our needs and wants in a property that we hoped to find. After some detailed research, Corey found three appropriate properties. With his guidance, we narrowed them down to one. We soon had to return to Toronto Canada and left Corey with the power to negotiate on our behalf.
We were thrilled when we found our new home in Naples ! It was a beautiful lakefront courtyard villa in Pelican Bay, had a pool, guest cabana and was perfect for our entire family. During the building inspection our joy and excitement came crashing down when we discovered hurricane damage to the roof and our lawyers could not agree on how to create the fine print.
It was at this point that Corey’s business acumen truly shone through. Through his recommendations and negotiation on our behalf the price was concluded some $250000.00 below the listed price, plus a generous roof replacement allowance to cover any expense from possible hurricane damage.Corey was always positive and reassuring. He worked tirelessly behind the scenes in conjunction with both parties’ lawyers to bring about a satisfying result for both sides.
We came to discover that Corey has 40 years experience in Naples real estate, a proven sales record, a 33 year construction background as a State Certified General Contractor and, as we found out, a true knowledge of the legalities of real estate transactions.He embraces the goal of reaching a mutually satisfying agreement.In our experience, Corey utilizes his skills, knowledge, and disposition to inspire respect and confidence from those he deals with. Without Corey, we would not have achieved our purchase goals!

“Recently we closed on our new Stock Development Naples home at Isles of Collier Preserve. When we began our search for a home, we did an internet search to find a broker to help and found Corey Cabral. Corey showed us many properties in the Naples area, educating us on the different areas and types of communities available to us. We looked in many communities and saw several enticing rehab opportunities in mature communities.
Corey’s knowledge of construction helped point out what we would need to change and how we would be able to accomplish our goals made this option a viable path. However, since we were not living in Naples, we thought a new build would be easier for us to manage than a rehab from out of town. Corey’s local expertise on all aspects of the area made all the difference in helping us choose the right new home community for us.
Our timing was good and Stock was just starting to sell lots in Isles of Collier and Corey pointed out the investment potential of getting in early in a strong market. We chose a long waterfront view lot at the early stages of presales, one of the best lots in the community. Working with the builder, Corey was able to negotiate what we think was an excellent value including all available builder discounts, a great value for us.
Since we were doing finishing work after closing, Corey helped guide us to with detailed information and sources of subcontractors to get the best workmanship to complete our home. On the final walkthrough, Corey helped us examine every aspect of the home to make sure that the builder gave us the quality and condition of home we expected.
Throughout the process, Corey was supportive and helped with the stress and emotions that naturally occur with all the decisions of a major purchase. The best news is that at closing the house was worth significantly more than what we paid!
Thanks to Corey, all round a great experience.”

“When my wife Jill and I decided to look at property in Naples Florida we contacted Corey Cabral. We did not know Corey but we did our research on the Internet and found him to be the go to professional for the Naples real estate market. We soon considered him a trusted friend.
Corey was patient and took the time to help us explore various types of properties to decide first on the lifestyle we were truly looking to achieve. Our first trip to Naples with Corey was a driving tour of various location options. The second trip to Naples was to look at the three lifestyles we were interested in seeing. Olde Naples and the new urban style of living, Park Shore and the Gulf front condo lifestyle and finally the community of Pelican Marsh and the single family home option.
I indicated he is patient and he had to be as we looked at a lot of properties to narrow down our decision. When we decided on the Park Shore area he really went to work for us. We fell in love with unit 17A at the Park Shore Tower and Corey represented us through the entire purchase to closing.
One of the unique additional things we truly appreciated is Corey’s construction background. He was able to recommend the necessary remodel professionals and rental management company to complete our dream home in Naples on the Gulf.
It is without reservation that we recommend Corey to you for your Naples Real Estate Needs.”

“ Being new to the Naples market, we really had to rely on the advice and guidance of a local real estate professional. Based on what we were able to find out on-line Corey seemed like a good choice. After speaking with him over the phone he helped set up a plan for us for the few days we had to do our preliminary visit. Corey started us with a great overview day where we viewed some of the best representative examples from areas that appeared to be candidates based on our needs and wants. This gave us a great understanding of the options and the trade-offs associated with each of them. While he never attempted to steer us to any particular location or property he was very good about helping us think about the positives and potential concerns.
Once we settled on a property Corey worked with us to develop an offer strategy based on the local market conditions and individual property dynamics. Because of Corey’s background as a contractor his advice on property repairs and potential for improvement we were able to make much more informed decisions. I have no doubt that all of this guidance ultimately saved us a lot of money.
Through the entire process we always felt that Corey was on our side and working proactively to ensure we ended up with the best possible outcome. I would recommend him whole-heartedly to anyone looking to move to the Naples area.”

“Karen and I want to say “Thank You” again for your expert handling of our sale at Vanderbilt Bay! From the beginning phone call, through the process of appraisals, readying the property, timing, and counsel on how to obtain the best value on the sale, you always gave us excellent advice. And going from listing to contract in two days and closing 16 days later is now beginning to sink in that it’s closed!! It was a lot of work but well worth it.
So, thank you for everything and having bought and sold properties though the years we have not met anyone in the real estate profession that knows the business better than you do and you are a pleasure to work with and we look forward to the next sale soon!
All the best for Christmas, New Years and the Holidays and we look forward to seeing you soon!”

“We recently purchased a home in Naples. When we began the process, we had a lot of questions. My husband was interested in the Naples area, however I had never been there. While visiting a friend there one week, I contacted Corey Cabral. I found him based on his website which I thought was very thorough in highlighting the different communities in Naples. I told him we weren’t looking to buy anything for several months yet but gave him a rough idea of what we were looking for in a home.
Corey met with me and showed me around Naples in addition to giving me a basic overview of the area. He then took me to various communities to see what the houses were going for in our price range. He was very knowledgeable about the area and honest with pricing and the housing market. Several months later, my husband was in Naples for an event. He got in touch with Corey while he was there. Corey remembered what I had told him we were looking for and took my husband out to see several homes. We ended up finding a house that really fit our specifications and needs.
Corey handled the negotiations for us as we were out-of-state and it all went smoothly. Upon our inquiry, he also recommended a contractor to do some work we wanted done on the house and a designer to help us furnish it. We were extremely happy with both individuals. We can’t say enough good things about Corey. He has always been very responsive to our questions even now after we’ve moved in. We continue to recommend him to others.”
