Sharon Landsman
Downtown Sarasota Seller
We sold our downtown condo with the fabulous help of Lee and Lisa Mirman. They provided sound advice about pricing, how to best "show" our beloved condo downtown, and how to streamline the closing. The property sold very quickly, at a price that pleased us (the sellers) and the buyers (we hope!), and they truly went the extra mile. Lisa kept beautiful flowers in the condo (we were out of town) and helped us find a cleaning service so that everything was spotless. I cannot say enough about the special care and deep knowledge about greater Sarasota that the husband-and-wife team – the Mirmans – of Investments In Sarasota provide. We were so fortunate to have such a fabulous experience.

Lee and Lisa Mirman are knowledgeable, thorough, dedicated, honest and attentive as realtors. They went beyond the usual "caretaking" as my agents and worked hard on my behalf. They were a pleasure to work with. I have bought and sold many homes over the years and Lee and Lisa have been the best realtors I’ve worked with. I highly recommend their services.

Ross Keeler
bird key seller
We had a waterfront house listed on Bird Key. It was a property that I inherited. Built in 1967, it needed a number of cosmetic upgrades. I live hundreds of miles away. Lee and Lisa Mirman not only arranged for the repairs but they kept me and my siblings well informed about the status of the house. The helped negotiate a good price for all cash. I have bought and sold dozens of houses and I have a pretty good feel for the degree of professionalism one encounters in the retail real estate market. I think Lisa and Lee Mirman rank among the best realtors I have ever dealt with. A pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend them if you have a property in Sarasota.

mainland sarasota seller
Lee and Lisa could not have been more knowledgeable, efficient, or professional. That alone is enough to refer them to others, but we were most impressed by their kindness. In moving an elderly parent from a home to a continuing care facility, they recognized the difficulty in such a transition, both physically and (especially) emotionally. Their genuine kindness in how they spoke to Mom, made special arrangements for her comfort, and genuinely cared about her feelings was so appreciated. This speaks volumes for the ethics that the Mirmans bring to their business. We feel very lucky to have had them as our realtors.

Knox Cummin
mainland Sarasota seller
Lee and Lisa Mirman did exceptional work to sell our house. They found and had corrected flaws we couldn’t see, allowing our house to show at its best advantage. They engaged contractors, supervised the work, and made sure it was done well and at reasonable cost. As an absentee owner, I was reassured by their attention to detail and superlative communication skills while corrective work was ongoing. I highly recommend them for the knowledge, energy and experience they brought to the process of selling our house.

Longboat Key Buyer
If you want the best of the best, if you want a high-end concierge service, then I highly recommend Lee and Lisa Mirman of Investments In Sarasota. Their extensive knowledge of every aspect of the business was impressive. They are the whole package! With their calming professionalism, they guided us through our buying adventure. They were with us every step of the way. They were always available and bent over backward even after the sale. We felt like we were with trusted old friends the way that they treated us. They still check in on us and are ready to help us with anything we need. We truly appreciated their impeccable service. If we decide to buy again, they will be our first call.

Meet The Broker / Lee Mirman, Duke MBA

Lee Mirman, Broker of Investments In Sarasota

My relationship with Sarasota goes back 50 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 20 years ago.

My team and I have facilitated many hundreds of million in Sarasota Real Estate sales.

Here’s how I define real value:

  1. Provide a deep understanding of the real estate market and distinct lifestyle experiences in Sarasota. Having lived, worked, and played in Sarasota through many stages of my life — as a child, student, adult and parent — I can offer insights that you may not find elsewhere.
  2. Be a real advisor, not a clerk. For most people the real estate transaction is one of the biggest financial and lifestyle decisions of their life. With a Duke MBA in finance, I have the financial acumen to guide you through the numbers. I also have strong negotiation skills that allow me to navigate the complex social issues involved in buying and selling property.
  3. International know-how matters. As a seller, did you know 25% of all purchases in Florida are from international buyers? I will demonstrate our global reach, expertise, and connections. If you are a global buyer, I have a Florida real estate book dedicated to educating you. I am a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) and have worked with numerous international buyers.

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.”

  • I owned an antique and art gallery in NYC’s Greenwich Village just out of college.
  • Delivered talks about Florida real estate to audiences in Cannes, Monte Carlo, & Madrid.
  • My favorite Sarasota Gem is the Legacy Trail, our rails-to-trails bike path.
  • My vision is to develop Tiny House Eco Villages to address affordable housing and sustainable living.
