As a native Neapolitan, you'd be hard pressed to find a results-driven real estate professional that knows the Naples luxury market better than Chris Resop. Highly dependable, focused and committed to excellence, Chris delivers an exceptional level of service to each, and every customer.
Chris spent his early years on the baseball field and fishing on Florida's gulf coast waterways. In high school, his talent for baseball was quickly discovered and Chris was drafted straight out of Barron Collier High School to the Florida Marlins. Chris turned down scholarships from several collegiate schools among the top scholastic universities in the county and opted to pursue his professional baseball career.
For the next 14 years Chris lived out his baseball career to its fullest potential. Having successfully pitched for six major league teams, Chris became all too familiar with the stress of moving from city to city on a moment's notice.
As his career continued, Chris and his wife started a family. With each move, navigating the baseball lifestyle became challenging. Eventually Chris decided to lay down his glove and move forward with life's next chapter.
Chris's real estate career began shortly after. With a family history of more than sixty years in real estate sales and development and his inherent drive for success, The Resop Team was formed. Chris has the right experience and the intense work-ethic needed to deliver solution-oriented real estate services. Not to mention their first-hand experience with over 50 relocations during Chris' MLB career, giving a unique perspective and expertise few of us have.
A native of Naples, Kara Resop feels fortunate to have grown up in such a beautiful community that offers a lifestyle seldom found anywhere else in the world. Kara obtained her real estate license while pursuing her degree, and joined [Coldwell Banker], where she helped manage a top producing sales team; becoming highly proficient in bringing successful deals together. Kara has a work ethic second to none and takes a tremendous amount of pride in helping buyers and sellers find the properties that best fit their lifestyles or investment needs.
Once Kara married her husband, Chris Resop, she committed herself to support his MLB career. They spent the next decade tirelessly traveling the country with their 2 small children. They even lived in Japan for 2 years while Chris played for the Hanshin Tigers. But even during these travels, Kara continuously worked on negotiating personal real estate sales and helped fellow MLB families buy their forever homes.
The experience of living in so many different places taught Kara invaluable lessons (the least of which included how to raise 2 children on the road!). During this decade of traveling for work, Kara and her family would always come back to Naples to recharge and spend time with family and friends. After this journey, it seemed natural to plant their roots in the only place they called home Naples, Florida.
Shortly after, Kara would pursue her dream of owning her own business. She partnered with a beauty bar franchise, resulting in a benchmark sale within the franchise company after successfully launching and operating this business for several years.
During this time, her husband was making a name for himself as a top producing luxury real estate agent. The couple decided Kara would be an asset to The Resop Team thereafter Kara successfully sold her franchise. With Kara's passion and background in real estate, The Resop Team at William Raveis has completed over 200 real estate transactions since 2015 and over 300 million in sales.
Kara and Chris know what it takes to assist their clients in successful transactions. Dedicated, diligent, and loyal, The Resop Team can guide you into the perfect home or assist with the successful sale of your house.
