1. Venice, FL

Our city, the Shark Tooth Capital of the world, has great crime and safety ratings, average home values, and a large population of retirees and older adults, but just because the residents here are older, doesn’t mean they don’t have just as much fun as any other adults.  Venice is known for it’s amazing shorelines, a vibrant arts and culture scene, it’s Italian Renaissance inspired architecture and it’s spectacular nightlife.  With so much to do in Venice it’s no wonder residents here don’t act their age, and we love it that way!  Want more information on why Venice is such an amazing place to live?  Give the Nick Flerlage Team a call.  We’d be happy to share our passion for Venice and help  make your Florida Dream home a reality.
