My relationship with Sarasota goes back 42 years. My family moved here in 1974. We first lived on Longboat Key where I attended Anna Maria Elementary. In 1978 we moved to live on the Gulf of Mexico on Siesta Key and I attended Pine View School.
As a 3rd generation real estate professional, I couldn’t help but grow up learning the market and the industry. My instincts for the business — along with my passion to deliver real value to my clients — was the incentive for me to establish my own boutique brokerage 15 years ago.
My team and I have facilitated $440 million in Sarasota Real Estate sales.
Here’s how I define real value:
My encyclopedic knowledge of the local market proves time and time again to be a true asset to our clients. Our client testimonials validate the premise by which we operate our business: “Know more. Care more. Do more.”
