Sarasota, Florida, is a stunning place to live. It’s called the “Cultural Coast” and here we enjoy the professional symphony, ballet, opera, and thriving art scene around a vibrant urban center. With diverse restaurant options and natural attractions, there’s something for everyone. There are close to 20 golf courses in Sarasota that include municipal, semi-private, and private golf operations. Whether you love bird watching, hiking, biking or water sports, there are over 120 parks and trails in Sarasota County encompassing over 3,000 acres.
Few counties have the appeal that Sarasota enjoys, and in many respects, it has been the top destination for home buyers for years, all supported by the thousands of critics, reviewers and the national attention we receive, such as the new PBS documentary featuring our beautiful playground.
If you’d like to explore the real estate market, neighborhoods and options to make your own “Sarasota Experience’ perfect, please give me a call. From a private beachfront retreat, to a condominium in the heart of the city, the options are endless.
