Elaine Dodd: selling the best of Sarasota.

Sarasota Realtor Elaine Dodd has made excellence her touchstone. From the properties she chooses to list to the superior service she offers her clients to her stellar sales record, Dodd is known by clients and colleagues alike for her unflagging quest for the best.

Dodd is a multi-million dollar producer who is consistently in the top one percent in sales in her profession. She has earned her GRI (Graduate of Realtors Institute) and her CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), the latter the highest credential a real estate agent can achieve. Less than one-half of one percent of real estate professionals ever earn this coveted designation.

She's built her reputation around the homes she chooses to handle. Although she is a specialist in the luxury home market, all of her homes within a wide price range share a superiority in condition, decor and pricing. Her customers are satisfied that when she shows them a property, it is competitive with the market and is in top-notch condition. This dedication has created satisfied customers and clients, allowing Dodd to operate with an unprecedented 87 percent referral base.

Dodd is known for service to buyers and sellers that goes beyond the expected. "It's not just how much you know," she emphasizes, "but how much you care." For each listing, she publishes the "Home Book," her own sophisticated marketing tool. Using professional photography, this glossy book shows the home inside and out, and describes the neighborhood and the demographics of the area, as well as the home. It's been a highly effective marketing tool for out-of-town buyers, other real estate agents and prospects.

Dodd also has the experience to handle complicated financing and negotiations with creativity and tenacity. Whether her clients need to move before selling their old home or are transferring from out-of town, Dodd has been in the situation before, ready to solve all those sticky problems with the most innovative solutions.

The home featured here is an example of Dodd's superior properties and customer loyalty. A totally renovated, three-bedroom, two-bath home on Siesta Key, this property is owned by Marge Chandler, who buys and renovates a home each year. Because selling her properties immediately is crucial for Chandler's investment, she selected Dodd as her personal broker. This home lists for $349,900.

When you want someone who sells the best and is dedicated to giving the best, look to Elaine Dodd, a proven leader in Sarasota's real estate market.
