Ted McDermott was raised in Westchester County, New York (just north of the city). He spent many years with IBM in a variety of assignments.
Ted and his wife Lorraine have owned homes in five states. They moved to Florida in 2005 to enjoy the beautiful weather and outdoor life. They were almost immediately “hooked” on the gorgeous Riverwood community in Port Charlotte.
Shortly after retirement from IBM he began thinking of a new career – real estate. Since taking a real estate agent course in college the idea of being a Realtor was in Ted’s subconscious. One night at the local ballpark he met a local realtor who encouraged him to pursue a license and Ted became an agent.
Ted spent the next few years with a Port Charlotte brokerage, specializing as a buyers’ agent, and as he says, “enjoying the great satisfaction of helping people find their dream home in the paradise of Southwest Florida”.
At the same time Ted was getting involved in the Riverwood Community where he has served on multiple committees, neighborhood president and officer of the Riverwood Neighborhood Council.
In 2012 he joined Riverwood Realty as Realtor on his home turf in his dream job.
In 2020 he joined Gulf Access Homes, Inc. He is continuing to specialize in deeded and gated community properties in Charlotte Co. (including Riverwood) and southern Sarasota Co.
