Clarke-Payton is a British expat with international art, design and lifestyle experience. Naples is a hotspot for tennis and paddle ball, and Garber’s life as a competitive player means she can tell you where, when and even who to play. With knowledge of Naples’ many exclusive subdivisions, Lujen is the DMG team’s rental and gated-community expert. When clients want the perspective of a career financial industry professional, Ardel McKenna draws on his Yale degree and investing professional experience to help clients make the right decision. If private boats and planes are your passion, then Runzel can steer you in the right direction.
