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...

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
