Zachary Franklin, Realtor®

What can I say? I live in paradise!”

This simple statement from Zach Franklin is a ringing endorsement for Southwest Florida, considering he resided on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts prior to settling in Naples. He cites the sun and surf at local Vanderbilt Beach as irrefutable proof of his fantastic find. The desire to help clients find jewels like the luxury resort-style and golf communities in Naples is what brought him to real estate. Shared values, insight and the best tools in the real estate industry are what brought him to Amerivest Realty. “The technology and flat fees at Amerivest are second to none.”

Since relocating to Naples from Los Angeles in 2008, Zach has gained legal knowledge and skills as an intern for a local law firm, and is currently on target to receive his Juris Doctorate from Ave Maria School of Law this spring. Prior to this, he had an exciting career in Los Angeles in the entertainment business after earning a Bachelor of Arts in Theater from C.W. Post/Long Island University (1995).

Zach and wife, Shannon Franklin, are devoted to the enrichment of the local arts community, largely through their work with the Naples International Film Festival (NIFF). He donates his time as NIFF’s legal intern, while Shannon is currently NIFF’s Executive & Artistic Director.

Zach’s goal is to bring his team-oriented enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit to the real estate business. “I believe strongly in the American dream of home ownership, and I love the fact that as a Realtor® I will get the opportunity to help people to realize their dreams.”
