About Bruce Cochrane

I began my career as a realtor on Sanibel and Captiva in 1982. I was managing a resort on West Gulf Dr. on Sanibel and the resort included a condominium complex, this drew me into the real estate sales. I earned my designation as a past president of the Sanibel-Captiva Board of Realtors by serving as president in 2013. I have been elected to a third term as a Fire Commissioner for the Sanibel Fire and Rescue District. My term as president of the Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club for 2015 has just been completed. RE/MAX awards 5 Above the Crowd award for Florida each year. It is to recognize those who are deeply involved in their communities. I was very surprised and honored when one of these awards was presented to me for 2014.

My wife and I have made Sanibel our home for almost 40 years. We currently share our home with Sanabella, a 12 lb. Morkie. We are boaters, tennis players and occasional golfers. My wife is very active in fund raising for the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation.

Please put my knowledge and experience of the islands to work for you.
