Welcome to Sarasota Florida and the Gulf Coast!
Welcome to the greater Sarasota area! My goal is to provide you with lots of information about Florida and in particular, the Gulf Coast of Florida where you’ll find the sparkling jewel called Sarasota. Here you’ll learn all about Florida Real Estate available including homes, condominiums, rackominiums, equestrian, golf and waterfront communities. My MLS Search is fun and easy to use and is the most complete source for current real estate listings in the Sarasota area.
I’m licensed in the State of Florida and specialize in the greater Sarasota area including Bradenton, Longboat Key, Siesta Key, Lakewood Ranch, Casey Key, Osprey, Nokomis and Venice.
I was raised in Ohio, where I spent many weeks and weekends at my grandparent’s farm. There I learned the meaning of hard work. Up at 5:00 am every morning, my grandfather and I would milk the cows, brush the horses, feed the chickens, bail the hay and by 5:00 pm, would return to help my grandmother cook dinner. When I look back at those times, I realize how much that farm molded my life and my work ethic.
I worked in the printing industry for 15 years selling high end collateral materials and packaging to advertising agencies and corporations. During that time I developed a strong sense of customer service. My sales skills were honed and in the process of selling, I realized that by servicing the customer, my sales would soar. I learned a lot from my customers, too. Because I was working with high-end marketing executives, I became very astute about the psychology of marketing a product or service.
It was natural for me then, to enter the Real Estate business. After all, my mother and father were both Realtors when I was growing up. Since providing great customer service is so important to me, it was essential that I create alliances with service providers that I could trust would provide the same quality and level of service to my clients.
I have a complete list of trusted mortgage providers, title companies, homeowners insurance, appraisers and property inspectors at my fingertips.
I love the Internet and how it has evolved over the years to the advantage of the Real Estate Professional and the home buyer or home seller. Isn’t it wonderful how you can search for homes at your leisure, study the market, get information on mortgages, the buying process, the selling process and even get down into the very neighborhood where you’d like to live? I’m tech savvy which has helped my business tremendously, but I never forget that when you come to my website and leave your name, you’re not just another Internet lead. You are a person with a lot of history. You are someone who has feelings and wants and needs and you’re probably looking for a professional Realtor that you can trust. I never forget that and my hope is that we can work together to obtain whatever goals you are trying to achieve for yourself and your family. And to do that with passion and compassion.
