Tho we're islanders now, we're originally from Chicago. Yup! We're north-siders. Sandi graduated from Mundelein College with 2 art degrees, and went on to learn commercial art on the job at my 1st post-grad position - Playboy Magazine. After working at design studios, printers and ad agencies, Sandi founded her own advertising agency in Springfield, MA. In 1994 she received an MBA in marketing from Keller Graduate School of Management. Sandi became a licensed Florida Realtor in 1996, and a broker the following year.
Jim is a graduate of Illinois Institute of Technology, with a Bachelors degree in Structural Engineering. He holds licenses in Illinois as a Civil and Structural Engineer, and Professional Engineer in Florida. Jim is a state-certified Licensed General Contractor in Florida. Jim is also a Licensed Realtor in Florida.
Jim and Sandi were high school sweethearts who found each other later. With 4 children and 7 grandchildren between them, Jim and Sandi been married for almost 25 years. They moved to Marco Island in 1995, and began a home building business, Aquarius Homes. Sandi designes the homes they build, and Jim engineers and builds them.
Sandi has been a member of the Marco Island's beautification advisory committee ever since we became a city and just retired from that position. She's a member of the Leadership Marco class of 2004. In 2003 Sandi founded the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts (a non-profit) and served as President for 8 years. We sponsor art shows, a film series, and grant scholarships, among other things. She started painting again, and recently participated in a show of Marco Island artists in Portland, Maine, where she sold some of her oil paintings.
Jim has been a Board Member of the Marco Island Civic Association since 1996. He is Chair of the Architectural Review Committee, which oversees and approves new construction and remodels of homes to ensure they comply with deed restrictions. He is passionate about ensuring that the quality and unique character of Marco Island continue for future generations.
Jim and Sandi are happiest helping people fulfill their dream of owning a piece of this wonderful island we call home. What can we do for you?
