For the last 24 years I have been in construction in one way or another. I started as a carpenter and after six years of learning about every phase of carpentry from rough to trim and cabinet building I started renovating small projects for local designers. From there I controlled a construction company and built some large projects and renovated some hotels and condos with that firm. Then about 11 years ago I became a licensed Certified General Contractor and did mostly large scale renovation and historic restoration for about six years. For the last 5 years I have been a Design/Build Developer. So I am your girl with regard to anything construction!!! I consult realtors regarding potential projects on listings for potential buyers. I consult Architects with regard to space planning an...

Siesta Key Real Estate Spending my whole real Estate career on Siesta Key I often run into people that don't understand or have been lead astray by another Realtor on my island.  It is very important to understand the different styles of property here because things are so diverse.  The best part about my island, from a Real Estate standpoint, is that there are no hotels.  Most everything is individually owned!  So the opportunities for sales and vacation rentals are endless.  A lot of Realtors were just selling people any property and not paying attention to their rental restrictions and now have people "trapped" in their properties.  So here lies the point for my article: You have the investment oriented properties that have anywhere from 1 to 7 day rental availability.  These propert...

Siesta Beach, Sarasota, Florida Dr. Leatherman's Beach Report is out again. Known as "Dr. Beach", Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, a Florida professor has published his list of the nation's top beaches annually since 1991. As reported by CNN.com, Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota was 2nd Runner up, but those of us who live here still think our beach is tops. With a beach as deep as several football fields, gleaming white sands that never get hot to the touch, and crystal blue-green water, Siesta Key Beach nearly single handedly sells Sarasota real estate. While coming in third on this prestigious list is indeed an honor, I suggest that Dr. Leatherman visit the more remote beaches on Siesta Key, not just the world famous public beach. A short walk up from the crowds yields a windswept sandy landsca...

I know, the title sounds a bit pushy. Throughout my real estate career, I have resisted the "used car salesman" approach to sales. I have always adopted the policy that if I simply show Siesta Key, people will buy without the hard sell. But over the last 18-24 months, as has been the case around the country, the Siesta Key market has slowed considerably. While prices dropped, buyers waited to see just how low they would go. Many still wait.But many buyers are buying. Which means one thing. As soon as enough buyers buy, prices will not go lower. As soon as inventory begins to level off, the deals will be gone.  Last week, the Sarasota Board of Realtors announced that February 2008 was our best month in years, with Sarasota/Siesta Key sales up 28%...BUYERS ARE BUYING. There are still deal...
