ResortQuest affiliate RVA opens north Key office

by: Robin Hartill Managing Editor

RVA, a ResortQuest Affiliate, has opened its north Longboat Key location at 6350 Gulf of Mexico Drive.

The addition of the office is part of the company’s expansion plan announced in February in which ResortQuest International’s Southwest Florida division will add a total of up to four offices in the next year, including locations on Anna Maria Island, Siesta and Lido keys while remaining in its main office at 4030 Gulf of Mexico Drive.

In February, Larry Starr, president of the company’s Southwest Florida division, told The Longboat Observer that the expansion would help to meet the need for short-term that is growing not just on Longboat Key and its surrounding islands but throughout the tourism industry.

“There remain guests who stay on the island for 90 days, but the trend is most certainly toward shorter stays,” Starr said. “People are taking more vacations of a shorter duration.”

The new office is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The location is the former home of Wedebrock Real Estate Co., and most recently, Engel & Volkers Longboat Key Realty and Sun Resorts International LLC. Engel & Volkers has temporarily consolidated its Longboat Key and Holmes Beach offices, while Sun Resorts International has moved to Whitney Beach Plaza.
