What do Clients Say?

"Elizabeth is a true professional with incredible knowledge of the Sarasota market. Even when we left to go to North Carolina for the summer, Elizabeth gladly visited and researched homes for us, took photos and helped us see the houses as if we were there ourselves! We loved working with Elizabeth and after finally finding our special home have remained wonderful friends."

Gail and John W.

“Elizabeth is in the process of closing our current architecturally significant home, which was perceived by many to be hard to sell. She made this happen swiftly by her unique approach to marketing the property and through her strong network of press contacts. The customer found us through a newspaper article lead story on our home that Elizabeth personally worked to place. We knew from day one that through her patient persistence, she would work to help my husband and I achieve our goals.”

Mary C. M.
