My life here is Sarasota is like living in Paradise!! I grew up and lived in Minnesota most of my life with a 5 yr. stay in Illinois for college and grad school. I raised my children in Minnesota but visited Sarasota often as a second home. I have lived in Sarasota full time for the past 15 years and have been actively involved in residential and investment real estate all of that time. I specialize in mid-priced to luxury properties, condos, villas, and single family homes.
At least half of my clients are moving from another state, so it is important that they find the right location that meets their lifestyle needs. When people relocate they want to make friends and get to know their surroundings. 9 years ago I started a walking group to help people meet while exercising at different locations. TO FIND OUT MORE:
On a personal note, I have 3 grown children and their spouses and 8 grand children. I know the schools, the parks, entertainment, and events here in the area that might interest you and your family. I enjoy biking. swimming, walking, theater, arts, and live music venues, and most of what this great town has to offer in terms of cultural and music events. My partner , Skip Halsey and I live on Siesta Key and enjoy time spent with extended family and friends. We are active participants at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Venice, the Suntex Boat Club, and Sarasota Walkers. Skip loves to golf and is well informed about the local courses. He has a long history in Sarasota, having come from Charleston in the 70 ‘s. As a Volunteer Coordinator for Sarasota Memorial Hospital he has an insiders view of the medical facilities in Sarasota. His children and grandchildren grew up in the area and continue to live close by.

I look forward to helping you with your real estate needs.
