DWELL Real Estate - Local Expertise

Buying or selling a home is an important event. You deserve a local expert.
DWELL - Sarasota Realtors 

DWELL Real Estate was opened by Marc Rasmussen, a veteran Realtor who was previously associated with RE/MAX Alliance, Sothebys International Realty and Michael Saunders and Company. DWELL began with a small group of high-integrity agents and began a process called “elevating the business” of real estate. They strategically accrued several additional Realtors, all of whom practice top-of-the-line professionalism. Located in downtown Sarasota, DWELL prioritizes giving each client the experience of being the only client, focusing on superior market knowledge, thorough communication with the client throughout the buying or selling process, ethical advocacy for their clients, and getting to the closing table successfully in each transaction.

We are proud members of:

Better Business Bureau

Florida Association of Realtors
