The Ackerman Group prides themselves on their work ethic and loyalty to the community. “We’re proud to call Sarasota our hometown for over 40 years,” says Barbara. “We’re equally proud of our up-to-date knowledge of the ever-changing real estate market – we keep our ears to the ground.”
The Ackerman Group has intimate awareness within the SRQ community and a wealth of experience as realtors. The team understands that no two clients are the same and most importantly, that every transaction starts with a dream.
“Each client has a dream,” Ryan says. “Our job is to listen to each individual client and collaboratively work with them, to make that dream a reality.”
The Ackerman Team delivers the highest level of care to fulfill the range of needs for each client. Some clients are searching for their first home, others are moving up, downsizing or purchasing a second property. Regardless of what you seek, The Ackerman Group strives to be your lifelong real estate partner and will work endlessly to earn and keep your trust.
“Our clients are our neighbors. This is our hometown, after all,” Barbara says. “We want to introduce you to the finer aspects of life here in Sarasota. When a client’s dream comes true, our dreams come true. The Ackerman Group has built success on ensuring yours.”
