Carolyn Francis - Biography

 I have been active in the real estate business here in Sarasota and Manatee counties , since moving to the area 14 years ago.  

My ties to the area date back to 1952, when I first visited.

My realtor father would bring us to the area every January to escape the brutal Minnesota winters. When I first visited , we stayed on Longboat Key, which was very remote with only a few cabin resorts. Gradually others came to enjoy the sun and the newly built resorts on Longboat, Siesta Key, and Lido.  In the early 80's I invested in a condo on Siesta Key as a second home for family visits.  I knew that I would eventually move to Sarasota.

In 2004, after sending my daughter off to her last year in college...I made the move!!

I launched vigorously into sales with ReMax on Siesta Key, and quickly found that buyers and sellers where plentiful.  Without the benefit of GPS, I spent a great deal of time learning the neighborhoods and the properties. Siesta Key,Palmer Ranch,Gulf Gate, and the Landings, were the areas I first served.  As the market slowed, I expanded my reach to include many nieghborhoods in Venice, Nokomis,Central Sarasota and Mantee.

As a result I feel that I know the greater area better than most.  I also started a walking group to provide opportunities for clients and locals to get to know the areas beaches, parks, and urban areas.


I love the area and the people, and welcome the opportunity to assist others as they sell their properties and move on to a new life chapter, or the buyers who are looking for a home in Sarasota/Manatee.

My personal experience as mother and grandmother, and my professional experience in business make me an excellent choice for your realtor. You can be confident that I can get the job done with the least amount of hassle!!   BEING A REALTOR IS NOT JUST A JOB, IT IS A WAY OF LIFE!!.    Carolyn Francis
