“Helping out-of-state buyers find the home of their dreams on Florida’s Gulf Coast.”
Endowed with a long legacy of natural beauty and cultural flair, Sarasota offers the benefits of a big city with a small town, laid back feel. With superb weather year-round, Sarasota is a stage with stunning backdrops. You may choose a waterfront home on Sarasota Bay or on the Gulf of Mexico where watching the sun set is a daily celebration. Or you may prefer life on the evergreen fairway of a championship golf course. Whatever your lifestyle, we offer exclusive access.
Buying a home from out-of-state requires a real estate advisor with skills that spark and sustain long-distance relationships. Our global real estate advisors are the masters. Over the last year, they have successfully helped remote buyers find their place in Sarasota from thousands of miles away.
Here are their stories:
From the Midwest
We just became homeowners in Sarasota thanks to the efforts of Nancy Endara. Nancy was very helpful in helping us locate the right neighborhood and the right home for our winter escape from the Midwest. She guided us smoothly through the process from making an offer to closing. With us living 900+ miles away, it could have been a rough time but with Nancy’s involvement it was a breeze. It is also super helpful that Nancy’s list of contacts is extensive. We haven’t asked for a reference for any type of service that she couldn’t point us to people who could meet our needs. We highly recommend Nancy Endara to anyone looking for a home in the Sarasota area.
From New York/Brazil
We want to thank you for making the purchase of our new home on Anna Maria Island the most pleasurable experience we have ever had in buying a home. Like many people today, we have an exceptionally busy schedule. Since we were traveling back and forth to New York and Brazil, we did not have time to address all of the details required to purchase our new home. Between you and your wonderful staff who took everything off our plate but writing the check — we say, “Thank you!” We will happily recommend you to our family and friends in need of your service.
From New York City
My husband and I have bought and sold several homes over the years and have dealt with many realtors along the way. We now write about our experience with the local realtor who represented us in our most recent transaction.
From 2019 to 2020, Nancy Endara represented us in our search and eventual purchase of our new condominium in Sarasota, FL. Her knowledge of the local markets, professionalism, advocacy, candor, patience, kindness and extra efforts every step of the way truly have been extraordinary. We worked with Nancy over the course of one full year and several “blitz” visits to Sarasota from New York City, complicated by the pandemic. We are convinced that we would not have been able to successfully find, negotiate, contract and close remotely on our new Sarasota home without Nancy’s remarkable help.
Our purchase is complete and our business with Nancy and the Peter G. Laughlin Group has concluded. Following our recent closing, we approached Nancy and asked if there was some way we could recognize her dedication and provide a personal testimonial. Now we are so pleased to have this opportunity to do so. Our recommendation of Nancy is unconditional, absolute and enthusiastic. Should we, friends or family ever need a Sarasota realtor again, we will reach out to Nancy immediately. We know we could not be in better hands.
From 10,000 Miles Away
My home buying experience with the Peter G. Laughlin Group could not have been better. The PGL team led by Natalie Tanner made the process as smooth as I could have possibly imagined.
As a “remote buyers,” I would consider our needs quite special. Natalie did a full evaluation and assessment of the home on our behalf. When the decision to purchase was made, she and the team led a quick, fair and successful price negotiation process. She then immediately plugged us into her network of capable and highly responsive support groups, including mortgage brokers, insurance brokers, legal teams and inspection companies.
Natalie drove the collection of all necessary reports and other key documents for us while we were living some 10,000 miles away. This required her to communicate with us at any hour of her day and night. Post-closing, she periodically looked in on the house to make sure it was going to remain in proper condition until occupancy.
The whole process, although never simple, was as easy and flawless as could be. Thanks Natalie for all of your hard and tireless work and perfect follow-up on the many issues we confronted. We couldn’t have done it without you.
From New Jersey
When Joanne and I first met Nancy Endara, (about 5 years ago), we knew if we were going to purchase a home in Florida, Nancy would be our point of contact. Through the years, we have occasionally touched base with Nancy on properties of interest and we have always found her to be warm, knowledgeable, has great integrity and is very flexible. These are traits which we admired then, have come to admire over the years and admire even more than ever now as we navigate through these stressful times.
We are in the process of purchasing a condo which we have never seen in person. Nancy “FaceTimed” our original view of the property. Given the pandemic, we will not be able to travel to view the property due to the stay-at-home orders in New Jersey. We had intended to have a walk through prior to the closing; however, due to the stay-at-home order still in place, Nancy will perform the walk through, has coordinated an electronic close, and will coordinate the locksmith after the close.
Joanne and I were considering postponing the close; however, the comfort that Nancy provided to us gives us great pleasure to proceed. This is a relationship built over time. Nancy is a valued, seasoned, ultimate professional whom Joanne and I have come to admire.
I strongly recommend that those who are interested in beachfront property contact Nancy Endara, with whom they will certainly share the same experience as we have.
