Buying or Selling Real Estate?

Whether you are a first time buyer or an experienced investor, you will find useful information about how to choose “just the right” property, making an offer, negotiating, financing, mortgage rates, moving, and everything involved in making an informed real estate decision in today’s market.

The Sarasota/Bradenton market is one of the hottest in the country, enjoying equity appreciation of 30-40% year over year for the last several years. Even with a recent increase in available properties, there has never been a better time to invest in this area.

My area of specialty is residential real estate representing either buyers or sellers. As we work together we can explore the possibilities of the many new home communities, both single and multi-family or the secondary market. If you are thinking of building anything from a stable to a subdivision, we can find available land with appropriate zoning. Give me a call or send an email and let me know how I can help you.

In addition to my professional real estate experience, I’ve had the good fortune to be able to buy and sell residential real estate locally and in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia, as well as residential and agricultural real estate in Wisconsin, where I grew up. My English husband tells me that my residnetial practice makes me an “estate agent”, and I quite like the sound of that term.
