Buying or Selling Real Estate on the Sun Coast? Cari Can Help.
My Job is Helping!

Put my 23 years of experience in banking, financial software, and real estate to work for you today! As a banker, I gained experience in mortgage lending and can help you understand the mortgage lending process. As an implementation project manager for a financial software company, moving groups of people from CFOs and CIOs to collectors and clerks in commercial credit departments toward a common goal increased my organizational abilities and negotiation skills, I can help you move through the buying or selling process in an orderly and professional fashion. As a professional real estate licensee, I have earned the GRI (Graduate, REALTOR Institute) designation, and I am learning every day. My analytical, management, and negotiation skills are in constant use. Let me put those skills to work for you!

Where I Work:

My license allows me to practice real estate anywhere in the state of Florida, but to provide the highest level of service, I specialize in Sarasota and Manatee counties. If you need real estate services in another area of the state, I will be happy to refer you to a colleague who can provide the same superior level of service in their own area of specialty. Whether you want a property that allows you to golf, like a beautiful home in a golf course community such as Tara or the Meadows, or Bent Tree; fish, like a great waterfront property on Palma Sola Bay or in Coral Shores; or invest, like one of the wonderful new condos being built all around Sarasota; or just hang out on the beach at Siesta or Lido Key, I Can Help!

How Can I Help?

Please email me to receive free reports regarding the buying and selling process, referral to mortgage brokers, home inspectors, title companies, or any other information tailored to meet your needs. Or call me if you have questions about anything you see on the website. My business is service and I am here to provide you the highest level of professional service possible. I represent buyers at no cost and, when you think about it, there is not cost to list your home, either. You pay when I bring you an acceptable offer. Remember, this transaction is all about you and I am here to help!

When I Am Not Helping You Buy Or Sell Real Estate:

I belong to the local chapter of the Women’s Council of Realtors, where I have been elected to the position of President Elect for 2007, I also belong to the national, state and local REALTOR”s associations; and I’ve served on the REALTOR”s Political Action Committee for the local association since 2004. In 2005, I was privileged to be asked to write real estate related articles for a local women’s magazine. If you request copies of the articles, I would be happy to send them to you. My husband and I enjoy home improvement projects and far too many people at the local Home Depot know us by name. Colin is from the Northeast of England and is a computer programmer, so now I not only speak Yankee and Southern, I get along pretty well in “geek” but am clueless in Geordie. We have the three most spoiled cats in the world, who help me study for the MBA degree I am pursuing. I belong to the USGA and the Executive Women’s Golf Association and am trying to perfect my short game. Don’t even ask about the rest of my game. We have a great time on the golf course even if I am “enthusiastically bad”. In addition, I am a Notary Public in Florida, so I can notarize a document for you or even perform a marriage ceremony here.
