The Sarasota area, long acclaimed the cultural capital of Sarasota's West Coast offers a vast array of attractions. Please see the Arts Page.  The Mote Marine Laboratory is a fascination for both scientists and marine life lovers alike, gardeners love the Selby Botanical Gardens, and of course the area abounds with wonderful beaches and boating of all types.
Longboat Key, the ultimate Island Paradise, is an offshore barrier island stretching for eleven sun drenched miles between the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the beautiful waterways of Sarasota Bay. The island has a mix of residential condominiums and single family homes reflecting Longboat's popularity as a haven for both retired and working residents as well as winter residents. Besides it's truly magnificent beach, Longboat Key offers a 45 hole Golf Club, great opportunities for boating and fishing, excellent facilities for walking and cycling, and gourmet restaurants. Shopping can be enjoyed at 2 centers on the Island or at nearby renown St. Armand's Circle where you can explore more than 100 stores or enjoy the delicacies of many fine dining establishments.


Longboat Key offers a relaxed, quiet atmosphere yet it is very easily accessible just 15 minutes from Sarasota International Airport, 20 minutes from Interstate 75, and only a 2 hour drive from Disney/Orlando.

Longboat Key is the finest community on the West Coast of Florida and has been meticulously developed to preserve it's characteristic low density.

Sarasota, a city in a beautiful setting combines small town charm with the amenities of a metropolitan center, and also offers wonderful areas to live. Choose Lido, Bird or Siesta Keys, or maybe the convenience of exciting downtown Sarasota, or one of the excellent golfing communities such as The Oaks, Lakewood Ranch,University Parkway, Prestancia, The Meadows or Palmer Ranch.

I first met Michael about 3 years ago when I bought my apartment in 1350 Main street This was an investment property to rent and as I live in the UK, I needed all the help and advise I could get. Plus he was a fellow Brit living in Sarasota for 20 years. He was so helpful with the purchase and renting that I bought another 2 apartment in the same bloc J.N. UK
Michael Granston is wonderful! We worked with Michael (as out of state buyers) to purchase a condo in downtown Sarasota. Michael was so helpful, patient, kind, knowledgeable and dependable. He was easy to get ahold of and made the entire buying experience stress free! We are so happy that we met Michael, he is now our "go to" agent! J.H. OH
