Sarasota Florida Real Estate - Beaches and Golf by Day, Culture and Fine Dining by Night!
When people come to the Sarasota area from all over the world, they appreciate a small town feel with the amenities of a big city. Sure we have the number 2 rated beach in the USA – Siesta Key – with white sugar sand for miles, and lots of golf, and boating, and tennis, and State parks, but Sarasota also has world class shopping and fine dining.
Known as Florida’s Cultural Coastal Center, Sarasota has several performing arts theatres, orchestra, ballet, opera, jazz, museums for art, history, children’s hands-on, and classic cars, archeological sites, and the Sarasota Film Festival. We have boat races, art and craft festivals, and entertainment for all ages. I like to call it – "Saradise!" Come and see for yourselves, and when you feel it is home, call us to make that happen!
