The Downing-Frye name has been linked with real estate in Naples for fifty years. Since its inception, the company has grown to be one of the largest independently owned real estate brokerages in the country.
The modern day history started in July of 1992 when David Frye and Michelle Frye implemented the current 100 percent commission concept. Amazingly, 90% of the 1992 Downing-Frye employees are still with the company today. This stability is very rare in real estate brokerages but speaks positively about the company.
For many years, David Frye and Michelle Frye owned the company. However, in 2005, David and Michelle invited Don Ross and Mike Hughes to become partners. Don and Mike had been friends with David for many years; so becoming owners was an easy decision. Each partner brings unique skills to the company. Don is a prominent local real estate attorney; Mike is a CPA and David is a successful Realtor.
Not only ownership expanded, likewise offices expanded. In 2003, Downing-Frye set up a temporary branch office in Bonita Springs. This temporary office blossomed in 2004 into an office with a prime location on Tamiami Trail. Today, our thriving Bonita Springs’ office is home to over 100 productive real estate associates.
As ownership and offices expanded, so too did Downing-Frye Realty’s outstanding accomplishments and recognition. Since 2004, Downing-Frye Realty has been ranked in the top 100 real estate offices in the country based on closed
