Talis Park Sales Team Adds Catherine Schmitt as Luxury Home Specialist

NAPLES, Fla. (Oct. 12, 2012) Kitson & Partners, developer of Talis Park, a newly re-envisioned 461-acre country club community centered on Naples’ acclaimed Norman & Dye golf course, today announced that Catherine Schmitt has been named a Luxury Home Specialist, joining Talis Park’s sales efforts, which are scheduled to launch this fall.

Schmitt will be responsible for actively promoting the community through onsite property tours and working with area brokers and clients. With more than three decades of sales and marketing experience, Schmitt specializes in onsite sales having held positions with Premier Properties at The Strada at Mercato and West Bay Club as well as at Lake Las Vegas Resort in Henderson, NV, a master-planned golf community.

Throughout her career, she has consistently been a top multimillion-dollar producer and has been awarded the Aces Circle of Excellence by the Sales & Marketing Institute for top realtors in the nation. She holds designations of Certified New Home Specialist (CSP) as well as Professional Golf Community Associate (PGCA). Schmitt was also named the Business Woman of the Year by the San Francisco Business and Professional Women’s Organization, where she later served as BPWO chairwoman for the Bay area.

“Catherine will be a wonderful addition to our growing Talis Park sales team,” said Victor Spina, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Talis Park. “Her extensive experience and incredible sales record in luxury real estate make her an ideal asset to be part of the Talis Park launch.”

Actively involved in the community, Schmitt volunteers for Habitat for Humanity, the annual Collier County beach clean up, and the Freedom Waters Foundation.  Through her sorority alumni association, she also volunteers her time performing vision screening with the Lions Club program. For seven years, she was actively involved in the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption in concert with the Wendy’s Three Tour Golf Tournaments.

“After a three year search for the best place to live, I decided on locating to Naples,” said Schmitt. “I now look forward to assisting clients on their personal journey in finding their own dream homes at Talis Park,” added Schmitt.

This fall, Talis Park, located at 16990 Livingston Road, is introducing a bold new vision for Naples luxury living with a re-imagined clubhouse and three new neighborhoods that will offer an inviting network of meandering trails and pathways leading to Vyne House, a village center that will serve as the heart and soul of the community.

Three refreshingly-distinct home collections built by the area’s top builders with no details spared, will be unveiled to embody the new spirit of the community that promises an approach to luxury living that is more relaxed, intriguing and refined. Overlooking the water or championship golf course, the new homes will present free-flowing indoor/outdoor living spaces, beautiful views, and prices ranging from $700,000’s into the millions.
