About Marv Needles….

….relocated from Ohio to Marco Island in 1969 when the island was in its infancy. He began his real estate career as an employee of the Deltona Corp. (developer of modern Marco Island), and within a few years began a two year broker apprenticeship. Upon receiving his Florida brokers license in 1973 he founded Flagship Real Estate Corp., one of Marco Island’s leading real state firms.

Marv wife Jayne (hailing from Frankfort, Indiana), now retired, was instrumental in the success of Flagship; and today 3 of their 4 children are licensed real estate brokers, residing and practicing in Collier County.

Over Marv’s many years in the real estate profession, he has designed and developed commercial property, designed houses, renovated houses and as an instructor, contributed to the education of others entering in the real estate field. Once considered as one of the few experts, in Florida, in the Resort Property Management field, he has written legislation and served in an advisory position to the Governor of Florida.

As President and FRO of Flagship Homes, Inc. Marv designed 3 model home centers and was responsible for building homes for over 175 families in the Marco Island and Naples area.

In late 2015, Marv closed Flagship after 42 years as broker/ owner; and in 2016, he was provided the opportunity to join the John R. Wood team.
