Elizabeth enriches the real estate experience of her clients with her extensive market knowledge and involvement with Sarasota's diverse cultural landscape.  From fine art to architecture, Elizabeth has a keen eye and sees beauty and potential everywhere.  Her discerning eye and appreciation for discretion in assisting her customers with lifestyle opportunities and choices, builds trust and loyalty with both buyers and sellers.  

An avid listener, Elizabeth is able to intuitively identify the most effective approach for selling a property and to assist buyers in discovering their needs and sensitivities to find the best community and home to fit their lifestyle.

You can hike a jungle trail in Myakka Park, and don a tuxedo to attend an opera gala the same day. You can play 18 holes of PGA golf and catch a theater performance that very evening. You can participate in poetry writing and painting; attend academic lectures, or cheer on the Baltimore Orioles. You can refine your French at classes with the Alliance Francaise de Sarasota, before attending a brown bag jazz concert – all in the same day.
