Longboat Key market leader Bruce Myer and his son join family, fun and hard work.

“It is a double win. Not only is Chase a natural, I get to work with my son every day,” says Bruce. “There is a synergy we both enjoy.”


The birth of children arrives with the birth of dreams.

We dream for our children to go further. We want them to have their own identities and be strong and passionate and happy. If we are truly fortunate — and this is increasingly scarce in today’s world— we get to have them in our lives in a meaningful and ongoing way as parents.

But anyone who knows Bruce Myer knows one thing: his life is a wheel that spins around the hub of real estate, tennis, and golf, and most importantly — the relationships he has developed over more than four decades.

In fact, he still plays tennis with pro John Woods, who hired Bruce in 1979 to sweep tennis courts at the Longboat Key Club.

But the relationships he cherishes most. The driver much of Bruce’s meaning in life — are his three boys — whom he helped raise as a single father.

Bruce would tell friends over the past years that his boys had found success in Denver, Portland, New Haven and in cities far from Sarasota. Like most parents, his connection turned to phone calls and holiday vacation plans.
