Communities I Love!

Home is where the heart is and I will help you  find your peaceful place. Whether you are looking for a second home or your primary home,  you've come to the right place. ​As a Buyers Agent, I love to help folks find their perfect home in their perfect area of town, which I can do with my 20 years of experience in this area.


Here are some of my favorite areas:  Venice Island , Palmer Ranch, and South Venice.


Venice Island is wonderful, friendly small town of 25,000 on the Gulf of Mexico.  It has a  beautiful and fun downtown and miles of beaches and lots of waterfront restaurants and tiki bars.  Venice is where I bought my first home when I moved here 20 years ago and love it.  It has a thriving art community with it's own theater, Art Center, and community center.   It is only  about 15 miles from all of the attractions in Sarasota. 



Most 3/2 homes are older with prices from $300K to $800K.  There are, however, many new home developments east of 75 that are farther from the beach.  Prices usually start in the 400's for a 3/2/2.



Palmer Ranch is an elegant planned community in South Sarasota between 41 and 75.  There are over 30 separate communities in this 7000 acre development.  Most of the residential ones are upscale, gated and private.  Prices range from $200K for a 2/2 condo in the golfing community of Stoneybrook to several millions in The Oaks. We live in Silver Oak near Honore and Central Sarasota Pkwy and love it.  Prices in Silver Oak range from $500K to $1.8 million.  Most are 4BR, 3.5 bath, 3 car garage, with a pool.

South Venice is about 5 miles south of Venice Island and has many affordable, older homes, $200 to $500K. There are no deed restrictions and no HOA fees.  I have had a home there for over 20 years now and love that I can take a ferry to a private, secluded beach on Manasota Key for South Venice residents only.
