Year Purchased: 2015

About: That's my dad and I at Tropicana watching the Red Sox from as close as you can get! I moved here with my own family in 1991 and Mom and Dad followed! We came for the arts but I have 9 SCUBA certifications too! I was a board member for 4 years at the Asolo, our state repertory theatre, performed at two local venues in a Noel Coward play and an original work and I was featured in an independent film which showed at the 2011 Sarasota Film Festival. I played a realtor which is called type-casting since that's what I do! There's nothing I don't know about the area (or at least can find out) and I'm available for questions!

Why Sarasota, FL, USA:
This home captured my friend's imagination the moment she saw it and she had to have it! I was able to help make that happen and I agreed to manage the cottage while she travels. It's hard to say who has the better end of the deal! I was struck by the warmth of this home and how it reminded me of Carmel, California both inside and out. The second you drive in a wave of relaxation charms you into leaving the busy world behind!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Although the home and backyard are tranquil, the hustle and bustle of Sarasota is two blocks away! You are near everything that everybody wants when they visit yet you return home to peace and quiet!
