Our Southwest Florida Team!

Lynn Cantisano

With more than 20 years of design, remodeling, and real estate sales experience, Lynn has helped people achieve their dream of having a beautiful home.  What she also discovered along the way, is that her clients craved not just beautiful spaces, but organized, functional spaces as well.  Since she too is a lover of all things organized and a long-time friend of A Fresh Space, it seemed a natural extension to join forces.  Her areas of focus will be Lee and Collier Counties which include some of the fastest growing areas in the country including Naples, Ft Myers, Cape Coral, and the islands of Sanibel and Captiva.

As a 5th generation Floridian and Ft Myers native, she has seen a lot of changes in this area with ever-increasing demands on our homes, time, and lives.  Her 20+ years of buying and selling real estate in SW FL has naturally led to helping many of her client’s repair, re-design, and remodel their homes with an emphasis on kitchens, bathrooms, and closets. 

What has become apparent along the way, is that most people want their homes to not only look great but function well also.  Unfortunately, just as with remodeling, most people often feel overwhelmed by the process of getting organized and unsure of where to start which is why joining forces with AFS has been an amazing addition to our existing services.

Lynn truly believes organizing your spaces, either at home or in business and getting rid of clutter in your space can have a profound impact on your mind, body and spirit.
