Agents of Change
Elevating humanity through real estate
Catalist Realty is the only brokerage of its kind in Sarasota, Florida. Our model introduces a charitable contribution into every deal that we broker. The donation is carved out of the broker's commission and is a value-added service for our clients. It's simple: Buy or sell a home, choose a non-profit, change a life.
While many brokers / agents market themselves as philanthropic, very few incorporate charitable giving on a transactional level. Catalist Realty is leading the charge, offering agents, buyers and sellers an opportunity to reinvest in their community without ever taking away from their bottom line. We invite you to become a part of our story, learn about our non-profit partners, and make a difference through the power of real estate. Read the full story on our Blog.
CONCIERGE LEVEL representation
THe Service you deserve
We focus on single agent buyer/listing representation to ensure our clients' best interests are always the one and only priority. This allows us to focus on each individual client’s needs, wants and desires and find the perfect property that exceeds this criteria no matter who the prospective brokerage or agent is. With this in mind, we provide concierge level service from first contact until well after the closing. Although we are in the business of real estate, we consider ourselves a lifestyle and dream fulfillment company, and that journey doesn’t end with a set of keys- it merely begins...
HEAR FROM OUR CLIENTS
David went above and beyond all expectations in helping us buy our Englewood property. After buying our first home with David we reached out again to him to purchase another property for our family. He is hard working, patient, honest, thorough, and just an overall good guy. I would recommend him to anyone; as he can meet anyone’s needs. He knows the Florida Gulf Coast market VERY well and can be trusted with many matters related to buying/ selling property!Julie H.
David helped me search, evaluate, negotiate and close on a larger home for my growing family. His knowledge and contacts made the entire process very smooth. Everyone from the home inspector, mortgage broker and closing agent were very professional and stayed on top of everything every step of the way. I could tell he carefully selected the right people in each phase to build these relationships with to be able to provide an amazing level of service!Chris G.
We had some very specific requirements when we were looking for a house. David did a great job not only finding candidates, but following up with HOA’s and others to make sure we could find the perfect home to suit our needs. David was super friendly and helpful to us through the whole process, making sure we got any kinds of questions we had answered asap. With his help, we were able to find an awesome house at an amazing price while being walked through the whole process. If you need someone who is professional, knowledgeable and hardworking to get you the right home for you, look no further.Rob S.
We loved working with you Manda! From the moment we met, we were awed by your amazing and professional demeanor, not to mention how efficient you were by keeping us informed along the entire process. In today's business world, one has to be on top of things and have excellent business acumen...and that is just what you do! Thank you for taking care of us!Pam and Brian McCrone
We met Manda during an extended stay to figure out the local real estate market and find a winter retirement home. Not only is Manda knowledgeable, organized and hardworking, she is entirely pleasant to be with which is key when spending so much time together. Her positive attitude and energy brought excitement to a process that could have been grueling. Manda was quickly able to assess what we were looking for in a home, and when we did find the right spot she worked tireless to get the purchase done as smoothly as possible, no small feat as we were, by then, back in Boston. It was also clear to us that Manda has the respect of her peers in the real estate and mortgage businesses in Sarasota. We can’t say enough how grateful we are to Manda and Catalist Realty for getting us into our new home in Longboat Key.Dr. and Mrs. Robert Hughes
When I first hired David at Catalist Realty, he assessed my property and we collectively determined that it would be appropriate to invest in several upgrades to my house prior to listing it. He managed these changes using his professional construction and staging partners. Because of the care taken prior to listing the property, David had my house under contract within 48 hours from the time it was listed on the MLS. David sets THE bar for Professional Real Estate Brokers/Agents. One added bonus that I love about his business is that he incorporates philanthropic donations into every transaction. In this case, he helped me donate to several causes that I care about without affecting my bottom line. Contact him, you won't regret it.Kent H.
Manda is a first-class realtor who stood out immediately when I met her. She was kind, intelligent, astute, hard-working, goal oriented, extremely organized and sincere, as well as caring. She always found time for me, and when I placed a bid on a home and it was accepted, she was always one step ahead of me in the process. Whenever, I asked her a question along the way, she had already done or was in the process of doing what I asked. I never had to worry. She was so conscientious and accountable. She thought and planned ahead, and any questions or concerns I had, she promptly addressed them. There is nobody I would ever call back but her. If you are looking for an intelligent, motivated, energetic and trustworthy realtor who will guide you along the process with no worry, it is Manda. I rate her 5 stars.JoAnn Hinman
Manda, Thank you so much for all your hard work helping us finally close on our dream place in Long Boat Key! Your attention to detail, no pressure approach, and willingness to follow through truly helped make this happen despite always communicating long distance. From your initial research, to showing us properties when we were in town, to meeting the deadlines and getting everything signed, you have provided us with top notch service every step of the way. The experience and knowledge base you bring to this experience are second to none. Just trusting that you’d know what to ask and in uncertain circumstances, you put our minds at ease. And then finally the welcoming items you provided in our first visit to our new condo were so appreciated. Thank you again for all your hard work and diligence. We will be referring any of our family or friends to you who are interested in Tampa/Sarasota area properties and of course our next larger property!Sue R. and Diane J.
I have worked with David and Jake for many years and on multiple transactions. Most recently they helped my family and I find our perfect home in the Rosemary District, and made the entire process as stress free as possible. The biggest compliment I can say is that after moving into our new home, my two daughters told me that even though they loved our old house, now they finally feel at Home.Kathleen J.
