Get to know Mary Bernas
Whether you are buying or selling real estate in Sarasota or Longboat Key, Florida, I am a dedicated professional who will work very hard for you, my clients. A native of Madison, Wisconsin, I began my real estate career more than 20 years ago in Rumson, New Jersey. I moved to Longboat Key with my husband and two children in 1992, and have been a Realtor in the Sarasota area ever since.
My past clients have considered me to be a knowledgeable, honest and hardworking individual with "no pretensions." And, I have been recognized year after year as a top-producing Realtor specializing in waterfront property, whether it is on the Gulf, Sarasota Bay, or on a canal. On or off the water, I would be delighted to help you locate or sell a home in one of Sarasota's many extraordinary communities.

Mary is a true Longboat Key real estate professional, who did her homework to provide us with all the tools necessary to make an intelligent successful decision. We recommend her highly." Susan & Ted Gill "Moving to a house in Florida after more than 30 years in a New York City apartment was quite a change--and I'm not sure it would have been possible without more than a few headaches, without Mary Bernas. She was there for me throughout the entire process--from the search, to the negotiation, the contract, the inspections and up until closing.
