I have been active in the real estate business here in Sarasota and Manatee counties , since moving to the area 12 years ago, however my ties to the area date back to 1952, when I first visited.
My realtor father would bring us to the area every January to escape the brutal Minnesota winters. When I first visited , we stayed on Longboat Key, which was very remote with only a few cabin resorts. Gradually others came to enjoy the sun and the newly built resorts on Longboat, Siesta Key, and Lido. In the early 80’s I invested in a condo on Siesta Key as a second home for family visits. I knew that I would eventually move to Sarasota.
In 2004, after sending my daughter off to her last year in college…I made the move!!
I launched vigorously into sales with ReMax on Siesta Key, and quickly found that buyers and sellers where plentiful. Without the benefit of GPS, I spent a great deal of time learning the neighborhoods and the properties. Siesta Key,Palmer Ranch,Gulf Gate, and the Landings, were the areas I first served. As the market slowed, I expanded my reach to include many nieghborhoods in Venice, Nokomis,Central Sarasota and Mantee.
As a result I feel that I know the greater area better than most. I also started a walking group to provide opportunities for clients and locals to get to know the areas beaches, parks, and urban areas. www.meetup.com/sarasota-walkers-meetup/
I love the area and the people, and welcome the opportunity to assist others as they sell their properties and move on to a new life chapter, or the buyers who are looking for a home in Sarasota/Manatee.
My personal experience as mother and grandmother, and my professional experience in business make me an excellent choice for your realtor. You can be confident that I can get the job done with the least amount of hassle!!
