Working hard to make your dreams reality

Brenda Garland

Meet Brenda L. Garland, Broker

Hi, I’m Brenda, your friendly neighborhood broker, and Sarasota enthusiast!

Originally hailing from Lebanon, PA, a quaint town nestled near Hershey, I found my heart in Sarasota and never looked back. It’s a place where every street tells a story, from the historic charm of downtown Sarasota to the laid-back vibes of nearby Bradenton, and every sunset paints a masterpiece across the horizon. From the moment I set foot here, I knew this was home.

With a zest for life and an unwavering passion for real estate, I thrive in the fast-paced world of property across Sarasota, Bradenton, and beyond. But what truly ignites my spirit is the people I meet along the way. Guiding you through the exhilarating journey of buying or selling a home isn’t just a job for me—it’s a privilege.

Drawing on my deep roots in Sarasota and the surrounding areas, along with my extensive knowledge of the region, I’m dedicated to understanding your unique style, needs, and budget. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer exploring the charming neighborhoods of Sarasota, an investor seeking the perfect property in Bradenton, or dreaming of crafting your luxury haven along the Gulf Coast, I’m here to make it happen.

Let’s embark on this exciting adventure together. Give me a call today, and let’s turn your real estate dreams into reality. Because in Sarasota and its surrounding cities, every day is an opportunity to discover something extraordinary.
