Welcome to The "PORT NEWS!" August 2021, First Edition

Mangrove Mysteries!     By Captain Logan Hannon
Here in south Florida we have 3 different species of mangroves. Red (bottom in picture), white (middle) and black (top) that are all extremely important for not only holding our coastlines together but serving as natural hurricane shock absorbers.  The red mangrove is the mangrove we most recognize, it has the prop roots shooting down into the water with the biggest darkest green leaf.  Each mangrove has a unique way of filtering the salt water that allows it to dominate our salt and brackish water ways. The red mangrove is able to live in the salt water because of the lenticles on its root system. These are the little tiny bumps on the roots that act as filters, filtering 95% of salt out of the water as it’s absorbed. The white mangrove has a lighter green more rounded off leaf, seen growing at just a slightly higher elevation than the reds.  The whites absorb the salt with the water an then secrete it through two little salt glands on the stem of every leaf.  The last species the black mangrove has the skinniest an pointed leaf typically found out on the higher beaches in the islands.  The black absorbs the salt with the water as well but then secretes the salt through pores on the face of the leaf.  On a nice dry day you can actually see salt crystallized on the face of a black mangrove leaf!

POI Marina expansion project UPDATE:    By POI Dockmaster John Owens

The Port of the Islands Marina is growing! We are excited about expanding our docks to help provide safer and more versatility of yachts to enjoy our marina.  We have currently only widened our slips to accommodate wider vessels, we have pre sold over 30 slips to customers with Catamaran Sailboats.   We believe this is the best application for our marina, this allows us to have big boats but still not block the view of our condominiums that surrounds our marina.  Some of the new boats will range in price from $200,000 to $800,000.  We expect the clientele will change too.  How nice will it be to overlook beautiful yachts in the harbor!

What our clients are saying  

"The Jensen Group. A special thank you to Ray for the sale of our SunSet Cay condo. Not only did they find an outstanding offer in less than 24 hours but did so in a very professional and organized manner. Ray gave me some advice back in February that truly paid off. I highly recommend their services as they live and know the port."


~ Phil Zamarron

"Extremely professional, knowledgeable and caring. There is no other choice when listing, buying or selling here at The Port"


~ R Rondini

"With the ONLY office here at POI, and a very warm, welcoming, high visibility one at that, listing with these fine folks is the smartest move when selling here. Have also had great success when shopping and purchasing with Port of the Islands Realty. A committed and very pro team. Thanks for being here and all you do for the community (and those delicious muffins!!)! It only makes sense to support our local neighbors like these folks, particularly when they do an outstanding job AND support us... a 'no brainer'."


~ J Farina

"L'endroit très agréable et accueillant. Vraiment sympa." Translated: "A very nice and welcoming place. Really nice."


~ Witold Jasion

"What a terrific and capable team at POI Realty! Every document was perfectly executed and delivered immediately with complete and thoughtful follow up. We wish half the brokerages we deal with nationwide were half as good! Keep up the great work and thank you for your business!"


~ North American Title and Servicing

"Honest, loyal to our community."


~ J. Brownlee

"Very efficient in scheduling showings of the best properties suited to us! Thank you for the time spent and all of the knowledge you shared about Naples and Port of the Islands- extremely professional!"


~ Mike Murphy

"Dwyn did an amazing job narrowing down our requirements and allowing to focus our search on our perfect neighborhood. She was very patient and nimble as we were new to the area and weren't quite sure what kind of home we wanted. We never felt rushed and she was so helpful throughout the process. I'd recommended Dwyn wholeheartedly! Thank you Dwyn - we love our new home!"


~ Lely Buyer

"Dwyn made the process simple, fast, and worry free for our family to sell this home. She handled everything while we were out of the state. Thanks Dwyn!"


~ B. Ayers

"Selling or buying a home is an important and potentially stressful event in anyone's life.It is a journey into the unknown. One asks the questions, "How long will the process take?", "How should I get ready to sell or purchase a home?", "What is a fair price?", and many more questions. Dwyn Dion is a calm, resourceful, courteous person who is physically present at the client's side for every step of the selling-buying process. She patiently explains every page of a contract and makes the client immediately aware of any and all new developments. Trulia needs Dwyn Dion to make this company an even greater success. And even more, Trulia needs agents who will cause clients to return to Trulia and recommend Trulia to their friends and relatives. Selling my home with the help of Dywn was a wonderful process. I wish she would relocate to her native Maine in order to help me with the next sell and move."


~ K. Balakier

"We have bought 2 homes and sold one through Dwyn. if not for her persistence on our first which was a short sale. It would not have happened. A lot of agents would have walked. she stuck with it and got it done. the second deal was a Fannie Mae property that was time sensitive. She got it done quickly. we listed our condo , she had it sold in one week. it was the top priced condo sold in our development at that time. don,t look around for an agent . JUST GET HER!"


~ C. McDowell
