About the owner: Whether you are buying, selling or investing in Sarasota Real Estate, you need an acknowledged expert, by your side and as your guide. Someone who has actually done what you are setting out to do, again and again. That expert is Virginia Heidersberger. Virginia has been personally involved as a buyer, seller and investor in a wide variety of area Real Estate transactions for over 16 years, from multi-million dollar mansions to small investment properties, amassing a large and diverse portfolio of residential and business properties. As a professional licensed Real Estate Broker, Virginia brings to you the same skills that she utilizes for her own Real Estate investment, from property evaluation to marketing, from strong negotiation skills to equally impressive selling skills. Having spent much of her life in Europe, Virginia is as comfortable with overseas investors and buyers as she is with their American counterparts, expanding your horizons and your sales opportunities. As impressive as her Real Estate successes have been, it is only part of Virginia's story. Starting out as a nurse, she turned her love of medicine into a successful medical services and supplies business with nearly 60 employees, which she sold before moving here in 1997. Virginia is currently on her way to finishing her pre-med prequisites to eventually study medicine. Upon arrival in Sarasota, she bought 'Gumbo Limbo', a small vacation resort on Siesta Key, and the rest is history! If you want someone who knows this market; someone who has built a record of consistent success buying, selling and investing in Real Estate; someone with the people skills and decision-making skills that a skilled entrepreneur develops; someone with the level of caring that years in the OR has instilled in her, make Virginia your choice. You won't be disappointed!
Why the Owner Chose Gumbo Limbo:
Gumbo Limbo is managed by the owner Virginia Heidersberger and not by a management company. Both duplexes have been extensively renovated in January 2012.

PLEASE call for availabilities & rates we might have other properties available.
