(SARASOTA, FL) - Through the years, real estate has traditionally lent itself to the family dynamic.  It is evident throughout the industry, and most certainly on the Abbe-Mullinnix team.  Though the team, Abbe | Mullinnix Distinctive Properties, is named for partners Steve Abbe and Betty Mullinnix, the team’s third (and mostly silent) Realtor® is Gene Bretoi, Mullinnix’s husband.  Joan Marie Erni, the Team Coordinator, a former New York State Associate Broker, worked alongside her mother for many years in real estate companies on Long Island prior to moving to Sarasota.  Most recently, Shannon Abbe has joined the team as a part-time administrative assistant.  Shannon, a senior at Riverview High School, is the daughter of Steve Abbe.  She will work assisting the team throughout the summ...

  Sarasota Embraces Our Differences 2016The 2016 annual exhibit, Embracing Our Diffences, including 45 billboard size images prominently displayed  on the Sarasota bayfront ends today.  Each canvas includes a work of art and a quote from artists and school children from around the world.  My first visit to this annual exhibit years back was one of the reasons I made the decision to move to this vibrant and welcoming city on the Florida Gulf Coast.  Embracing Our Differences' message to me was that Sarasota was a very warm, welcoming place for everyone. As stated on the Embracing Our Differences website, the vision of the organization is as follows: "We envision a world that embraces diversity, respects differences and actively rejects hatred and prejudice." Since moving to Sarsota I hav...

Sarasota, FL— April 6, 2016 —  In February, The Realtors® Association of Sarasota and Manatee released a report that stated that “the end of 2015 witnessed record-breaking sales”, and that “our real estate community will continue to see steady, sustainable growth in the first quarter of 2016.”  Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty’s Abbe-Mullinnix Team has seen this prediction come to fruition, ending the first quarter of 2016 with a record-breaking number of closed sales. The team had 13 closed transaction sides, representing over $10 million dollars in closed sales volume in January, February and March 2016.  Despite an early Easter, and hence a predicted early end to the “selling season” in the Sarasota area, indications are that the market remains strong and active.  Learn...

Are you looking to buy or sell a house in South Gate?  I have been a Realtor in Sarasota, FL since 1998 so I have seen significant price changes in the South Gate neighborhood. When I first started it was a flat market, and then it went sky high, dropped down, and now back up again. One thing though has remained constant, and that is South Gate is a popular place to live. Houses priced right, have always sold really well in South Gate, regardless of the overall market. Throughout the years I have sold houses in South Gate representing the buyer, the seller, and myself. It is a great place to buy to live or for investment.View South Gate houses for sale here.From 1998-2002 in South Gate; prices were basically flat during the first two years of this time period. This was a great time to b...

Here are your 26 Things to do in SarasotaSarasota can appear to be a quiet town, where locals as well as visitors alike take time to watch the sunset.  When I first started vacationing here years before I became a resident, I was surprised to see what an event the sunset was!  Well, at first that didn’t set a precedent for Sarasota to be an exciting city or have nightlife.  However, I have come to find I can keep myself quite entertained in this city.  There are plenty of things to do in Sarasota! Sarasota is the town the circus built Ringling Circus Museum & Tibbals Learning Center, 5401 Bay Shore Road in Sarasota.  Did you know that Sarasota was the winter home of John Ringling and the Ringling Circus?  Mr. Ringling built a lavish mansion, Ca d’Zan, which is part of the museum grounds...
