A popular waterfront neighborhood in St Petersburg is Broadwater, located in southwest St Petersburg on Boca Ciega Bay, west of I-275 and north of the Maximo Marina Channel. Most of the homes are on sailboat water. Broadwater residents like the convenient location, 15 minutes from downtown St Petersburg and 15 minutes from the beaches.

Notes from Rob:
For the team, Broadwater has always been important. Mom has lived there for 15 years and knows the neighborhood better than any agent I know. For me, I’ve sold homes from Sarasota to New Tampa, from Apollo Beach to Madeira Beach, but the neighborhood that I’ve sold the most homes in is Broadwater. So when a nice couple contacted me several months ago to say they were moving here from Texas and were looking for a nice waterfront home, in a neighborhood that would be right to bring up their two children…Broadwater was my first choice. They quickly agreed, so the job was to find them the right house. They key to any buyer’s agent is to listen to their clients. Even though they said they could live with a 3-bedroom house, that is not what they needed. Broadwater doesn’t have too many 4-bedroom homes, and then matching up all of the other criteria…water, not too much sun, nice dock, right floorplan…it all narrows down the possibilities. One house came to my mind, but it wasn’t even on the market yet. The team had talked to the owners and told them all the things they needed to do to get the home ready for the market.
The opportunity for a perfect match was here. I called the owners and said, yes I know the house is not ready and is a mess, but your home is perfect for this family. They let us in, and it was the perfect house. The sellers were ready to move, the buyers wanted to buy, the deal was made. Had a long closing to allow time to sell the buyers home in Texas….and yes, it sold! One week later, our closing happened and everyone is happy. Broadwater welcomes their newest family. They will be a great addition to the neighborhood. I wish them many happy years in their new home.
