Lincoln VanMeter

Lincoln is originally from Decatur, Illinois. He lived in Indianapolis, Indiana for a few years with his wife; Peyten before moving to SWFL for the wonderful weather and pickleball! “We moved down here with a few friends and have never thought of moving back”

Before Lincoln became a real estate agent, he was a Registered Dietitian who worked with the geriatric population. He spent some time as the director of a pickleball facility in central Indiana. Real estate runs in his blood. His grandfather, grandmother, aunts, uncles, cousins, mother and sister are all real estate agents. “Any family gathering I attended real estate was always a topic of conversation.”

I am excited to help people find their forever home, winter home and sometimes home in the SWFL area. Whether it be providing guidance on how to serve a pickleball or how to manage their chronic medical conditions through dieting. Everything comes back to the need to help those around me in my community.
