Our Hardworking Team
Steve Moore joined the Smart Block Living leadership team in 2018 and has been instrumental in the growth of our real estate development and construction venture. Steve brings more than 20 years of varied experience in construction, financial management, business leadership, and corporate strategy to bear on the constantly evolving challenges presented by Florida’s real estate market.
Relying on his strong business and financial acumen, Steve launched his real estate career in 1997, developing, building, and managing a portfolio of more than $2.5B in apartment complexes, commercial properties, and single-family homes across the Cincinnati area. Steve has gained valuable experience with every task imaginable in the home building and buying process. From design and building to purchasing and financing, he calls on more than 20 years of hands on experience to manage the details of multiple residential projects ranging from single-family homes and apartments to estates of all sizes. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration with a focus in Information Systems and Accounting from the University of Cincinnati and has held a Real Estate license in Florida since 2015.

He lives in the Port Charlotte area where he enjoys serving with his local church and giving back to the community. Outside the office you’ll often find him enjoying outdoor fitness activities, leading student Bible studies, or volunteering with local organizations to feed and offer community to those in need.
Sir Charles von Doodle
Sir Charles is our resident Model Greeter and Lot Evaluator. He never meets a stranger, has a nose for what clients need in a lot, and great taste in pet friendly finishes and floor plans.
On most days you’ll find Sir Charles waiting excitedly to greet new clients visiting the model. Unfortunately, all that excitement wears him out and within a few minutes he’s usually sound asleep on the floor.
The proud owner of more than 30 neck ties, Sir Charles chooses a different one to wear to work every day. After making sure he’s looking dapper, Sir Charles heads over to San Casa Dog Park, where he’s known as the Park Mayor. He takes a few minutes to check that all is well at the park and socialize with his 20 best canine friends before coming in to the office and starting his day. In his spare time, Charles also keeps up with his Facebook page – Charles Doodle Restaurant Reviews - where he updates fans on all the local dog- friendly restaurants he enjoys in Southwest Florida.
