“I know you’re not a golfer, Donald,” she says, “but you may want to consider taking up the game. Its summertime in Sarasota, and all the golf course communities are eager for people to come out and play. In fact, some offer golfers the opportunity to walk the greens.” He says, “That doesn’t sound like much fun to me. Thanks, but I think I’ll stick to getting my exercise in an air-conditioned gym.

He says, “Dana, I met several participants in the Super Boat Grand Prix last week, and they were asking where to find the best value for direct bayfront condos in Sarasota. I told them that was easy — since they pass by it every time they leave the municipal boat ramp just north of the Van Wezel. It’s Condo on the Bay at the end of Boulevard of the Arts.” She says, “I absolutely agree with that assessment. There is really nothing else out there that comes close to those [...]Read more ›

It must certainly be Bayport Beach and Tennis Club on Longboat Key, right? It just so happens I read an article about Bayport recently. Did you know that Bayport [...]Read more ›

You are a triathlete what do you know about Arlington Park?” She says, “Donald, I’m surprised you don’t know about Arlington. It’s a treasure right in the middle of Sarasota’s South Gate neighborhood and has been going strong since 1979. Not only is there an incredible Aquatic Center with [...]Read more ›
He says, “Waterfront, bank-owned, close to downtown, west of the Trail. Under $350,000. Now, that rates a look—wouldn’t you say?” She says, “I did see that one come on—great price at $339,000 if it is what we think it is: a buildable lot on good boating water very close to downtown. Whitaker Bayou, right? On Alameda? I don’t think it will last too long—-who do we have looking for that?
