Why List Your Home With Us?

We can sell your home faster - and for more money. In 2013, I sold more than 3 times the number of homes in 1/3 the time as the average local agent - and I net sales 2% closer to list price for my customers.

International Marketing

With four complete websites, best-in-class listing distribution networks, and a dedication to internet marketing, your home is truly marketed worldwide.

#1 Local Market Share

Nobody sells more real estate than RE/MAX.  We have the most productive sales force in our area by far and we outsell most brokers 2:1.

Customer Service

Great service is the cornerstone of our business.  I’ve been voted ’5-Star Best In Customer Satisfaction’ by Sarasota Magazine four years running.

"Alex did a short sale for me. He exhibited the patience of Job in getting my lender and the buyers together to close the deal. Of course he and the title company handled a mountain of paperwork for me. While it took a while to close on the short sale, Alex hung right in there and completed the mission. This seller is so very happy and the buyers are ecstatic. Thank you, Alex, for helping me keep my sanity."

− Nancy

"We worked with Alex to find a home in Bradenton, FL. Alex was extremely knowledgeable and always very professional. He really did his homework on each house that we visited, giving us in-depth information on the house and answering all questions that we had."

− Bob

"Alex was enthusiastic, energetic and easy to work with. He jump started the sale of our dad’s condo and we had a contract within a few weeks. He knows the business and how to get the information out there. We could always depend on him to keep us informed and respond quickly to our needs. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone."

− Tom

"Alex helped us find our first home. He was patient, knowledgeable, and very responsive. Part of his success is his willingness to work hard to get the job done and ensure his clients are happy. He didn’t just sell us real estate…he sold us our home."

− Kristina

"We have worked with this agent on working through an 8 month short sale contract, the purchase of a different home, and the listing of the previous home. He knows Sarasota real estate, and knows real estate practices. Makes it easy to buy and sell."

− Karen

"Alex helped us in selling our home & finding a new home with very specific needs in mind. He was extremely knowledgeable about the Sarasota area."

− Lori

"My wife and I were incredibly impressed with the attitude, work ethic and professionalism of Alex Krumm. We just closed on our short sale today, and I just wanted to share how very supportive and knowledgeable Alex was throughout this grueling process. I know for a fact he worked for us tirelessly to complete a deal that felt very complex."

− Bart

Average Sale To List Price Ratio

98%

96%

(The county historical average is around 94%)

My buyers tend to purchase 2% closer to list price than on the average local deal.  If you’re selling a $200,000 home, that means you can expect to gross almost $4,000 more if you hire me to market for you.

Average Days To Contract

42%

77%

(Vs county historical average of 180 days)

It takes me, on  average, about 75 days to sell a home.  Currently it’s taking about 140 days for the average agent to sell a home, so my listings sell in almost half the time – which means fewer showings and less stress for you.

I Market On Literally Thousands Of Websites.

I maintain premium, agent-only subscriptions on all the top players in online real estate marketing, but I don’t stop there – you’ll be able to find your home on Facebook, YouTube, and thousands upon thousands of smaller real estate sites.

Professional Photography Comes Standard.

A first impression makes all the difference – both in life and in marketing.  My listings get the red-carpet treatment complete with professional photography to make sure your home is cast in the best light possible.

Why *DON’T* Our Parking Lots Look Like This?

| Blog | No Comments

I truly and deeply believe that the most effective ideas we come up with as humans address more than one need.  For more than a century, parking lots have been used for one and only one purpose: to park cars.  I think you and I can agree on the necessity of having nice, big parking lots (at least until they finally develop teleportation) but let me ask you this: what…

Early Settlers on Bee Ridge

| Blog, Search For Sarasota Homes Blog | No Comments

Today the name Bee Ridge generally brings to mind a seven-lane highway of vehicles speeding between U.S. 41 and I-75. It hasn’t always been that way. The original Bee Ridge was a high ridge of land bounded roughly by Phillippi Creek, Cow Pen Slough, and Bee Ridge and Clark roads. It was home to wild bees and some of Sarasota County’s earliest settlers. Two of the several families who shaped…

New Walmart in Sarasota

| Blog | No Comments

Walmart is building a new store on the busy intersection of Bee Ridge and Beneva in Sarasota.  Our county commissioners voted 4-1 last year to rezone the lot on the south-western corner of the intersection, which as of now is the River’s Edge Community Church. Construction will begin this spring and should be complete by this fall, bringing 90 to 100 new jobs to the area. Great!  More low paying…
