April in Paris?
Try April in Sarasota!

There’s a reason Sarasota is always ranked among the top places to not only to retire, but as a great place to LIVE. Yes to the weather, beaches, restaurants, parks and preserves, but there is so much more.

Whatever your pleasure, museums, art galleries, orchestras, opera, ballet, theater, and the live music scene which include some of the best blues, rock, classical and jazz in all of Florida!

“It’s hard to find another city the size of Sarasota with such a vibrant arts’ scene.”

Sports! Well, we can now brag about all the success of all of our states teams – Football, Baseball and Hockey!

Tampa Teams

Really – we do have it all!

Despite Covid, we have slowly begun to open up and develop a new “normal”. Restaurants, stores, and movie theaters have opened, (Under the proper guidelines). Even some of the theaters have built outdoor stages. As a side note the vaccine has become easily available now here in Sarasota County.

We are so lucky to have a plethora of outdoor activities as well. Such as our white sandy beaches that stretch along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, vast trails that wind through the many parks in Sarasota County, and so many more outdoor venues to explore. Make sure you put time aside to get to all of them.

Almost forgot the Legacy Trail with connectivity from the City of North Port through Venice to downtown Sarasota. Click on this link “Legacy Trail Update” for more information.

Right now, we are going through a period–just like everywhere else-of rising home prices and limited inventory. This is true for new home construction as well.

We are having our folks put their names on interest lists on the communities we visit, until more home sites open up. Feel free to contact us, we are happy to chat with you in more detail about this phenomenon.

Meanwhile stay safe, and hopefully Spring comes early!

Looking forward to showing you OUR Paradise
Until then – Enjoy!


Enjoy some of these photos that will hopefully make your day a bit better.

As you think about putting your home on the market,
a few hints:

You never get a second chance to make a first impression!

Become your buyer – If you weren’t moving to Paradise, would you buy your home at the price you are asking?

What do you see when you pull up to your home?

Does the first impression say: Wow- this home looks pristine?

As they walk through your home, can your buyer envision each room for his or her purpose? Is there plenty of room for their belongings? Empty every top shelf ( do this in every cabinet and shelf in the house). You have to pack any way, this will give you a head start. Whether you are dreaming of downtown or dockside, water view or your favorite fairway, our commitment is to help you discover your ultimate lifestyle.


So now you are thinking –

“How do I get the most dollars out of my home when I sell?”

A Few Hints

Your mission is to make your home show like a model.


The most important thing to remember is: once you decide to put your home on the market, it becomes a house and not your home – (you have to pack anyway, so why not get started early)

Look at your house though buyer’s eyes.

What do you see when you pull up to your house and park your car? Curb appeal is so important. You only get one chance to make a first impression.

Does the front of your home have an inviting and welcoming allure? Are your bushes and other plant life trimmed and tidy? Arrange a few pots of colorful plants and frame the entry way to invite your perspective buyer into their new home.

As you enter, are you greeted with a neutral fresh scent? You want to appeal to all the senses for greatest effect.

Is your paint color neutral so others can visualize their furniture in the house? As you walk from room to room is everything neat and tidy?

Are your kitchen counters clear? Empty every top shelf, every cabinet, every closet, and anyplace that has a top shelf leave empty. After all – you want to give the illusion of more than enough storage for anyone to need.

Hope these few little hints help you get on the right track.
