Welcome and I look forward to helping you buy or lease a home in or around Sarasota. My office is conveniently located in downtown Sarasota on Main St; so let me know when you want to meet and get started. Life is kinda Sweet in SW Florida.

Finding your dream home is my dream job!

I made the happy decision to move to Sarasota in 2012 after 8 corporate relocations.  Living here offers the best opportunities to get out, get involved and enjoy the weather, friends, flora and fauna.

It is especially nice when I am able to make new friends through the home buying process. My new friends have said some kind words:

“In my 50 years of buying and selling homes, I have never dealt with a more knowledgeable and professional real estate agent than Karen Sweat. Karen not only knew what was going on in her market, she also knew what was planned that could affect our purchase decision. 

In the course of one week,  she exposed us to all of the communities in the area that fit our criteria; showed us all the homes in our preferred community that met our specifications; and helped us determine a fair offer based on area comps. By the end of the week, we had purchased our dream home. We will be forever grateful for her help and friendship.”

“Home buying is very frustrating, especially for a first time home buyer. Karen is very knowledgeable and patient. She walked me through everything and let me know what to expect as we viewed and offered on several houses. She was able to find me exactly what I was looking for. I love my new home and  couldn't be more grateful for Karen. She went above and beyond! Thank you Thank you Thank you!”

“I simply cannot say enough positive things about Karen and her willingness to go above and beyond my expectations! As a former real estate agent in North Carolina for 14 years I appreciate the amount of time, experience and heart involved in finding just the right property for an individual or family. Finding what I needed in a seller's market by mid-October was not an easy task by any means. A chance meeting at a service station led to her first trying to locate, for well over a month,  the ideal "needle in a haystack" rental property for me. No commission in that yet she prevailed, calling or emailing me daily with lists of possibilities. 

A lack of affordable rentals that met my parameters morphed into my eventual purchase, so thank the stars, her countless hours of work and determination were finally rewarded. I'm now enjoying a great handy woman special "just right for my budget" home on an incredible botanical garden type property and have made friend for life in Karen.”

I enjoy what I do! So, if you plan on buying, renting or selling allow me to  the opportunity to offer my services and resources while showing you what else there is to love about Sarasota.

See you soon.
