Naples has been Hope Moore's second home for almost 25 years. While it appears that she was always on the move, she always had one foot firmly planted on the gulf beaches.
Hope was successful in a variety of business settings in the private and public sectors, both in the U.S. and abroad. She began her career in sales and brand management for IBM and IBM Canada. Her experience working with Refugees International Japan after a move to Tokyo sparked her deep commitment to giving back and she later founded a non-profit to teach philanthropy to high-school-aged youth.
Hope's family has a history in the wine business and with a move to Washington State she followed in her grandfather's footsteps and became a winemaker. Using her entrepreneurial skills, she blended her two passions and built a winery that would ultimately fund her philanthropy. Now, after twelve years Hope has retired from the wine business and has moved to Naples to be closer to family.
But an interesting thing happened along the way. After living in 25 different homes, including numerous renovations and custom builds, Hope developed a real passion for design, construction and interior make-overs. She has a keen eye for detail, a flair for design and over 30 years of hands-on experience successfully transforming properties. Hope believes that vision is "the art of seeing what is invisible to others."
But at the beginning and end of every project was negotiating the real estate contract. Hope knows what people look for from their real estate agent because she has sat on the other side of the table countless times. She understands the importance of listening to what your customer needs, solving the problems and executing with integrity.
