Seeing an opportunity through the lack of a local, independent real estate company dedicated to exceptional customer service, Michael Saunders decided to fill the void herself by founding Michael Saunders & Company nearly 43 years ago in 1976. Beginning in a single small office on St. Armands Circle, the company has expanded to 24 branch offices throughout Sarasota, Manatee, and Charlotte counties. Our earnest beginnings have blossomed into a corporate culture where character, integrity and good works speak for themselves; and every customer interaction should lead to a rewarding real estate experience.
