Q: Who lives in Collier’s Reserve?
A: The first Collier’s Reserve homes were constructed between 1994 and 2004. Build out took place rather quickly and sold primarily to end users which shielded the neighborhood from speculative purchasing that produced low quality flip investors during the Naples real estate boom between 2004-2008. The neighborhood attracted a good mix of early retirees coming from the Midwest, Mid Atlantic and East Coast along with younger local Neapolitan business professionals.
Time progressed and many of the original residents have since moved on making way for more of the same. Collier’s Reserve tends to attract early retired, soon to retire and newly retired professionals from across the county and occasionally abroad. Many residents are seasonal with some retired and working professionals living here full time.
Q: What are the amenities like?
A: The Collier’s Reserve developer was ingenious by venturing out of the one club house, one social area concept before it even became a thing. Residents have expanded on the concept by introducing a new sports club, pickle ball, bocce ball and dog park.

A: Collier’s Reserve is amidst a remodeling transition. Some homeowner are opting to sell their homes in original condition for a discount. These homes will likely be purchased by buyers who intend on making big changes to the property. Many homeowners are remodeling now, have recently made changes to their properties or are preparing to do them. You can expect the number of homes in original condition to decrease and property values to increase as more remodeling occurs.
Properties in Collier’s Reserve are easier to remodel compared to homes built during earlier times because floor plans are still relevant and ceiling heights are higher than earlier construction. This makes it easier to redefine design choices and make less costly improvements that will be received well by future buyers.
Due to the original aesthetics and character of the neighborhood, the feasibility and desire to tear down homes in Collier’s Reserve hasn’t happened yet.
