Chris Kernan

Broker Associate

My 30+ years of experience in selling real estate in Sarasota will help you smoothly navigate the purchase or sale of your home in Sarasota to a successful close. 

I am an expert in Sarasota and bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and and expertise about buying and selling real estate in Sarasota and the surrounding communities. The sale and purchase process is different everywhere, so you need someone with experience to avoid the pitfalls. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
I know Sarasota and the surrounding communities inside and out! I can work with you to find the lifestyle you are looking for and the right home at the right price.

Sell a Home
When you are ready to sell, you need someone who will aggressively advertise your home online and in print, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. With over 30 years of experience selling real estate in Sarasota, I can take care of everything you need, from start to close to assure a smooth closing.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Often times buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can help you make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast for top dollar.

"mitzieL reviewed Chris Kernan 07/22/2014 Helped me sell a home Chris Kernan provided great advice, kept a sale alive when at risk of losing it. He provided options and negotiated with buyer and their realtor to provide the best outcome for all parties. He demonstrated much experience, having many ideas and suggestions that provided the best advantage. He was honest and forthcoming with information good and bad which was greatly appreciated because I lived out of town. Chris went out of his way to assist because I was out of town and even met someone at the house to pick up an item they bought at the estate sale. He even offered to deliver it to them to help me. He priced the house at the market price to sell. At first I thought it was too little and asked that it be listed a little higher which he did. However, in the end the buyer was not able to get their mortgage because the purchase price was above the market value. Chris suggested allowing a slight discounted price which kept the"
