Karen Van Arsdale, Leader, Licensed Sales Associate


Karen’s name has become synonymous with Naples real estate due to her ability to build relationships with her loyal client base and her involvement in the Naples community. Karen has been selling Naples real estate since 1983, and is consistently among the top individual agents in the entire country.

Karen’s understanding of the subtle intricacies of the Naples luxury market is unmatched, and she loves sharing that information with her buyers and sellers.

In 2015, the Wall Street Journal ranked Karen the 18th highest selling agent in the U.S., while she was the top ranking agent in the entire state of Florida. Despite reaching such a remarkable career milestone, Karen isn’t slowing down! She remains one of the hardest working agents in the business and loves the daily interaction she receives from current and past clients.
When not working, Karen is an avid tennis player who enjoys spending time with friends and family, her dogs and her horses.

Daniel “Chip” James, Licensed Sales Associate


Chip left his own real estate business in the midwest before joining the team as a Realtor/Sales Associate in 2016. After nearly ten years in the business, Chip was drawn to the Naples area by the quality of life, outdoor activities and the luxury real estate market.
Chip loves working with people and he specializes in using modern technologies to simplify the process for his clients.
When not working, Chip plays tennis and spends as much time as possible with his wife (Nikki) and their four young children. Now that they are full-time Naples residents, Chip’s children are the fourth generation (on his wife’s side of the family) to reside in Old Naples.

Kim Spink, Licensed Assistant

Kim joined the team in 2010 with 20 years of local experience as a real estate paralegal. She uses her strengths and knowledge of contracts to manage the entire contract-to-closing process so that Karen’s clients are well-informed throughout.

She has established a reputation for hard work and true professionalism to exceed client expectations. She is the line that connects the dots to ensure success.
Outside of work, Kim can be found spending quality time with her husband and two sons.
