We analyze millions of home sales to find the best performing real estate agents.

Top Sarasota real estate agents

Sarasota’s white beaches and turquoise waves make it a Florida destination where limited inventory sells fast: a top real estate agent gets a Sarasota home off the market in 56 days. Use transaction data to find a top real estate agent out of Sarasota’s 3,334 active real estate agents. That peach bungalow on a palm lined drive could be yours for $103,752 less than the list price.


We found the questions to be very helpful in directing us to agents who focused on the area and homes in which we would be most interested... Without HomeLight, our buying process would have been much more time-consuming and complicated.

There are many, many, real estate agents in the South Florida area. HomeLight whittled down the choices to 3 agents, or teams of agents, which then allowed us to choose the best of the best for our needs... This is the way to go for getting a great agent.

HomeLight connected me with multiple agents who contacted me almost immediately... Due to the ease of use and quality of the agents I was presented, I'd highly recommend HomeLight for finding a Realtor.
