Jeff Porterfield


Originally from Ohio, i'm a corporate “refugee” having spent 35 years in service to major international organizations.  With degrees in Biology and Chemistry and an MBA in Finance, I am adept at providing clients with a complete understanding of the details and nuances of real estate transactions.  My international career of sales, marketing, negotiating and strategic planning, plus over fourteen sales and purchases of personal homes, has provided me with broad knowledge and understanding.  To that base and as a full time resident of Sarasota since 2002, I have the know-how and resourcefulness to provide impeccable guidance and service.  

Real estate transactions can be among the most complex and emotional decisions one makes in a lifetime.  As an experienced agent I facilitate this labyrinth and provide appropriate information and knowledge so my clients make the right real estate decisions for the right reasons.  I am eager to serve you.

Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! As a full time resident since 2002 I can work with you to find the right home at the right price, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home whether it be in Sarasota, Longboat Key, Lido Key, Siesta Key, Bradenton or Lakewood Ranch.

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, advertising your home, showing to prospective buyers, negotiating the purchase contract, overseeing the inspections, handling all necessary paperwork and supervising the closing is what I do best.  I can take care of everything you need, from start to close, with the minimum of hassles making it as stress free as possible.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar and in the shortest amount of time. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

I would love the opportunity to help you make the right real estate decisions for the right reasons!
