Lee County is located on the southwest coast of the Florida Peninsula, on the Gulf of Mexico. It was created in 1887 from part of Monroe County, and is named in honor of General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army during the Civil War. The county has a total area of 1,212 square miles, with over 35% covered by water, including Tarpon Bay and the Caloosahatchee River Estuary. Across Tarpon Bay, the well-known islands of Sanibel and Captiva are part of Lee County, along with over a dozen additional islands. The population was 618,754 as of the 2010 census. The county is a major tourist destination in the region.

The largest city is Cape Coral, but the county seat is Fort Myers. The city is the spring training home of two major league baseball teams, the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins. Both Henry Ford and Thomas Edison had winter homes in Fort Myers. The fort from which the city takes its name was built during the Seminole Wars in 1850, deserted after the conflict, and then occupied again during the Civil War. Abandoned again after  the war, the first settlers arrived from Key West in 1866. It was incorporated nine years later with 349 residents.

I called and the owner, Melody, answered immediately. I told her I had no idea what I was doing and she was thorough and walked me through the process. She also took the time to ensure I knew what was on the line and the importance of the process and what happens after. Instead of just doing the bond and taking advantage of me, she actually CARED. She had me come in an hour after we spoke so I didn't even have to wait. I would recommend her company to anyone in need of these services! Thank you Melody!!!
