Murray Costello spent most of his life in Fort Myers, minus his College Days and a few early employment transfers.After receiving his Bachelor’s in Business Management from the University of Florida (Go Gators), he chose to begin his construction career with Ryan Homes.
He started at the bottom just as all great leaders do. However, very quickly he began climbing the proverbial ladder within the organization, and reached the status of Vice President of the Southwest Florida Region.Ryan Homes was bought out in 1986, this was a great opportunity for Murray to take all he had learned and empower himself to become his own boss.
In February of 1987, he formed Captiva Bay Homes. The primary objective of Captiva Bay Homes was to help clients achieve their dreams. Whether it be a first home for a couple with new baby, or a retiree finally buying their piece of paradise that they had always imagined. Captiva Bay Homes was a success right out the gate.
