Cortez Real Estate

The historic fishing village of Cortez is one of the last remaining Gulf Coast communities dedicated to the maritime way of life. Located just across the bridge from Anna Maria Island, Cortez is imbued with an authentic old-world Florida feel, where fishing boats bob in the docks and seafood restaurants serve up the day's fresh catch. The real estate landscape in Cortez captures the essence of coastal charm with a mixture of classic cottages, waterfront homes, and more modern residences. Its proximity to Bradenton Beach provides the convenience of beach town amenities while maintaining a distinct sense of separation and community. Cortez's character-filled properties, often with views of the surrounding waterways, are a magnet for those seeking a home with historical significance and a working waterfront ambiance.
