Which Sarasota Neighborhood is Right For You?

Named one of the best small cities in America and among the ten best cities to retire young by Money magazine, Sarasota is quickly becoming one of the most popular luxury real estate markets in the state of Florida. Located on the west coast of Florida, approximately 50 miles south of Tampa, Sarasota’s neighborhoods are a tropical paradise among a growing, vibrant community. Whether beachfront, bayfront, lushly landscaped, golf course fronting, condominium, cozy neighborhood, mansion or bunglow living is your style, Sarasota Real Estate offers a unique diversity in housing styles to suit virtually every preference.

The Sarasota area offers exceptional quality education, health care, financial services, and as already featured in other areas of this site, some of the best arts and culture in the southeastern United States. Add to that the extraordinary dining, boating, tennis, dozens of golf courses and other recreation options, and, especially the beaches make Sarasota real estate some of the most sought after on Florida’s coastline. With a quality of life difficult to match, finding the perfect neighborhood is the fun part, and I look forward to the opportunity to providing you a brief introduction to the most popular in this section of my site and, the opportunity to tour you at your convenience.
