About – Lisa Shepard & Scott Friedman
Lisa Shepard, Realtor
Originally from New York, I moved to Sanibel/Captiva Islands in 1992. With a diverse background consisting of numerous entrepreneurial endeavors I started White Glove Cleaning Service on the Islands. Within one year I expanded the company to include property management — Realty Management, Inc. RMI serviced large homes/estates on both Sanibel and Captiva Islands. In 1997, aware of the endless opportunities in the growing real estate market I turned to residential sales. I have worked as a full-time Realtor for RE/MAX Realty Group since 1997. RE/MAX Realty Group in Fort Myers is number one in sold MLS listings and sells more real estate than the next two companies combined. I am a multi-million dollar producer who has been ranked in the top 10% of my office each year. Always striving for excellence and great service for my clients, in 2004 I joined forces with two partners and opened MLS Title, LLC. I sold the company in 2007 and formed an alliance with Title Group of Fort Myers. My husband, Scott Friedman joined me at RE/MAX in 2008 and we have been working as a successful team ever since.
I also pride myself in having a strong referral network which can only be achieved by giving consistent top-notch service. I am happy to share the numerous testimonials from past clients stating the high-level of service that they received from me.
As a Realtor that wears many hats…whether you are buying or selling… I can help you achieve your real estate goals. With my ongoing commitment to service I will draw on a wide range of unique resources to handle your transaction from listing to closing…assuring an experience that is both effective and satisfying to all parties involved.
Scott Friedman, Realtor
Originally from the mid-west regions of Cleveland and Chicago, I grew up with set goals and determination. I carried that with me while obtaining a basketball scholarship to a nationally ranked college. This gave me the drive, motivation and discipline to succeed in the financial world. As a former VP and Sales manager in the mortgage division of a leading national bank; I honed my relationship building skills through personal service and by putting my client’s needs first. My entrepreneurial spirit led me to ownership of several successful businesses, which included a title company and property management firm. In 2008 I sold both companies and joined RE/MAX Realty Group were I partnered with my wife, Lisa Shepard.

RE/MAX Real Estate
We’re the Real Estate Leaders. No one in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX.
RE/MAX at a glance:
- Who we are
What began in Denver, Colo., in 1973 as “a pad of paper and a dream” is now a global real estate franchise network that spreads across 39 countries and eight territories, on six continents.
- Network size
The revolutionary RE/MAX Concept of enabling real estate professionals to maximize their business potential has evolved into a network of more than 100,000 agents in more than 65 countries with more than 7,000 offices.
- RE/MAX Sales Associates
RE/MAX Associates, on average, lead the industry in production, experience, and professional designations.
- The RE/MAX Balloon logo
The red, white and blue RE/MAX Balloon, with its “Above the Crowd!®”slogan, is one of the most recognizable business logos in the world. With more than 120 RE/MAX Hot Air Balloonsaround the globe, RE/MAX has the one of the world’s largest balloon fleets.
- An industry leader
RE/MAX is the No. 1 real estate organization in Canada and in the United States.
- Global expansion
The first RE/MAX region outside the United States and Canada was the Caribbean Basin, opened in 1991. It was followed two years later by RE/MAX of Mexico. In 1995, RE/MAX expanded into Southern Africa, Spain, Israel, Italy,and Germany. Since then, RE/MAX regions have become established in across Europe, in Asia, and in Australia.
- Record RE/MAX production
In 1999, RE/MAX Associates were involved in more than 1 million sales transaction sides within a single year in the United States alone – an industry milestone. The audited production figures represent the most transaction sides in a single year ever recorded by any real estate network. The RE/MAX network has repeated the feat ever since.
- The RE/MAX Concept
RE/MAX stands for “real estate maximums.”
In exchange for paying a management fee and a share of the monthly office overhead, RE/MAX Associates keep the maximum allowed amount of their commissions and receive the many benefits of RE/MAX programs and services.
By offering Associates maximum commissions and maximum career freedom, RE/MAX influenced competitors to re-examine and adjust their own policies toward sales agents, thus dramatically changing the industry.
As the network grew, renowned for its top producers and quality service to consumers, so did support programs, making RE/MAX a dynamic force in real estate education and technology.
The organization was one of the first real estate companies to have its own proprietary television network and one of the first in the industry to develop a site on the World Wide Web.
- Committed to real estate service
In a business environment of mergers and acquisitions, RE/MAX is the only major real estate network still owned and directed by its founders.
RE/MAX commitment to its membership has led to an ever-increasing number of accolades from the business community at large, including selection of RE/MAX as the best in the business. In its annual ranking of top franchises, Entrepreneur magazine named RE/MAX the number one real estate services franchise in 2000. On the consumer front, Worth magazine honored RE/MAX in both 1999 and 2000 with its prestigious “Readers’ Choice” award as the best real estate brokerage.
- More than 29 Years Above the Crowd
RE/MAX – now an established industry leader – celebrated its 30th anniversary at the 2003 RE/MAX International Convention. Young in years but mature in experience, RE/MAX looks ahead to even greater development and success in its next quarter century.
Community involvement is highly valued at all levels of the RE/MAX organization – from individual Associates to RE/MAX offices, regions, and RE/MAX International.
RE/MAX cause marketing and charity fund raising take on many forms:
- Most recently, RE/MAX has become a national co-sponsor of the Breast Cancer Survivor Recognition Program at Komen Race for the Cure® events.
- The RE/MAX organization has been the official real estate sponsor of the Children’s Miracle Network since 1992.
- Each year, about 20 charities host fund-raising golf tournaments at Sanctuary, the private course of RE/MAX International co-founders Dave and Gail Liniger
- RE/MAX International is the first major sponsor of The Wildlife Experience, a conservation and community center promoting understanding of the natural world and its conservation through art and education.
All these venues and more represent the RE/MAX network’s commitment to community involvement, serving the public beyond its real estate needs.
