The sale of a home is one of the most important financial transactions that you will be involved in. Selecting the right agent to market your home is mission critical!
I am committed to successful results and I spend time and money in the marketing of homes. A large part of my success comes from the strong brand of Coldwell Banker behind me.
There is seldom a good reason to gamble the sale of your house with a poorly managed brand. During the listing I personally supervise all communications as well as handle all negotiations. You will never be a delegated conversation. Sarasota real estate is outpacing most markets in the U.S., however it is a price sensitive market. Our season is in full swing; this is an excellent time to list your property for sale. Click links below for a specific summary of the local Markets:
MARKET SUMMARY – SINGLE FAMILY HOMES – LONGBOAT KEY
CONDOMINIUMS / TOWNHOMES – LONGBOAT KEY
CONDOMINIUMS – DOWNTOWN SARASOTA
Your referrals are deeply appreciated and I hope you will recommend me to any of your friends or family who may be looking to purchase or sell their home.
The city of Sarasota, the town of Longboat Key, and the Florida Department of Transportation are working together to bring crossing guards to the two busiest areas on the Circle – John Ringling Boulevard heading toward the Circle and North Boulevard of the Presidents, heading toward Longboat Key. The crossing guards, who haven’t yet been hired, will be positioned there from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, from March 13 to April 12.
Sarasota’s love and appreciation of the cultural arts is highlighted in many ways throughout the community, including the City’s public art program, which at the start of 2020 expanded citywide. Multi-family, mixed-use and commercial developments throughout the city limits with a construction value exceeding $1 million are required to provide a public art contribution in the form of approved artwork or a defined financial contribution, which funds public art. The program helps highlight Sarasota as the state’s top cultural arts destination on the west coast.
Property and mortgage fraud is considered the fastest growing white-collar crime in the United States. By filing fake deeds, scammers appear to own property, and can then fraudulently rent or sell property, without the knowledge of the true owner. By signing up for Sarasota County’s FREE property fraud alerts, you will receive an email alert whenever a document is recorded in Sarasota County’s Official Records using your personal or business name. Notifications are sent within 48 hours of the document being recorded, alerting you so you can choose to review documents through public records, or dispute through law enforcement.
