“I am results and action oriented,” Anne concludes. “But the concerns and comfort of each customer are the most important things. Their special needs become our special needs in everything that we do to get their property sold or as we help them find a home, condo or property to buy.”
Anne is very pleased in what has been created through her real estate team’s efforts. “I aim to make the real estate buying or selling experience one handled with great competence. I also strive to make it as enjoyable as possible for everyone involved.”
Her goal when working with a seller is to make the process as effortless as possible. “Buying or selling a home can be stressful, so I try to take away as much pressure from your arena and move it into ours. I want to provide you with the best service, exposure and good pricing so that you’re not on the market very long and want to refer us to your friends.” With buyers, she wants to find her customers the best possible home that fits their needs at the best possible price.

Before you make one of the most important decisions of your life, shouldn’t you become as informed as possible and know something about me and how I work?
Experience: I graduated with honors from the University of Washington and attended Bastyr University for my Master’s Degree prior to becoming a realtor. I worked in commercial and private banking for 10 years. I have more than 30 “actual licensed years” of real estate experience, lived in the Pacific Northwest for over 25 years, worked for the prestigious firm of Windermere Real Estate. A resident of Sarasota, I have been licensed in Florida since 2005. I have worked for RE/MAX Tropical Sands since 2005. I am a Broker Associate and have my Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Bank-Owned Property (REO) and Short-Sale Foreclosure (SFR) certifications.
RE/MAX Top 100 Producer in the State of Florida: I ranked 7th Top Sales Producer among all RE/MAX agents for the entire State of Florida in March of 2007. I ranked 40th Top Sales Producer for April of 2007. And again, I ranked 60th Top Sales Producer for 1st quarter in 2014 in the entire state!
Awards: I achieved the RE/MAX HALL of FAME Award in 2013. I was also honored with the FIVE STAR Real Estate Professional Agent Award from 2007 to 2020: Best in Client Satisfaction for Real Estate Agents in Sarasota–as seen in SARASOTA MAGAZINE! This is an exclusive group of fewer than 3% of the real estate agents in the Sarasota area nominated for demonstrating excellence in their field!
Service: I served at the Realtor Association of Sarasota and Manatee, formerly Sarasota Association Board of Realtors. I served on various committees: the Realtor Code of Ethics Committee: Grievance Committee, Professional Standards Committee, Rules and Regulations Committee, and MLS and Vendor Services Committee. I am dedicated to improving the quality of relationships between other realtor members and the general public. I have also served as Board Secretary to my own home owners association, therefore understand how associations function.

In the Family: My son, Michael Thomas, is the President and Owner of Cornerstone Home Inspection Group, LLC. He is an amazing home inspector and home inspection resource for me and many of my customers. He also has a real estate sign post installation division for the realtor community.
Our team lists and sells property in both Sarasota and Manatee County and various surrounding areas! We are the #1 home selling team in our office to call. As published in the local newspaper “The Observer”, I was named the top selling agent and listing agent in my office.
