"If you want the best of the best if you want a high-end concierge service, then I highly recommend Lee and Lisa Mirman of Investments In Sarasota. Their extensive knowledge of every aspect of the business was impressive. They are the whole package! With their calming professionalism, they guided us through our buying adventure. They were with us every step of the way. They were always available and bent over backward even after the sale. We felt like we were with trusted old friends the way that they treated us. They still check in on us and are ready to help us with anything we need. We truly appreciated their impeccable service. If we decide to buy again, they will be our first call."by Annie G. - Longboat Key Buyer
Lee Mirman | Sarasota Real Estate Broker
Lee and Lisa's exceptional reputation and referral business stem from their client-centric approach. With a calm and methodical demeanor, they prioritize their client's goals above all else, believing that putting the client first is the key to thriving in the real estate business.
As a lifelong resident of Sarasota, my relationship with the area goes back over 42 years. My family moved here in 1974, and we first lived on Longboat Key, where I attended Anna Maria Elementary School. In 1978, we moved to a home on the Gulf of Mexico on Siesta Key, and I continued my education at Pine View School. Growing up in this beautiful area, I was able to witness firsthand the evolution of Sarasota's real estate market over the years.
As a third-generation real estate professional, I couldn't help but learn the ins and outs of the market and the industry. My family has been involved in real estate for decades, and their expertise proved invaluable as I developed my own passion for the business. With a natural instinct for real estate and a drive to deliver real value to my clients, I was inspired to establish my own boutique brokerage 15 years ago.
At my firm, we prioritize our clients' goals above everything else. We believe that the key to success in real estate is putting the client first, and we've built our business on that foundation. Our team has facilitated over $440 million in Sarasota real estate sales, leveraging our expertise and deep knowledge of the local market to deliver unparalleled service to our clients.
Whether you're a first-time homebuyer, a seasoned investor, or anything in between, we're here to help. With decades of combined experience, a deep understanding of the local market, and a commitment to putting our clients first, we're confident that we can help you achieve your real estate goals. Contact us today to learn more about what we can do for you.
Here’s how I define real value:
1. Provide a deep understanding of the real estate market and distinct lifestyle experiences in Sarasota. Having lived, worked, and played in Sarasota through many stages of my life — as a child, student, adult, and parent — I can offer insights that you may not find elsewhere.
2. Be a real advisor, not a clerk. For most people, the real estate transaction is one of the biggest financial and lifestyle decisions of their life. With a Duke MBA in finance, I have the financial acumen to guide you through the numbers. I also have strong negotiation skills that allow me to navigate the complex social issues involved in buying and selling property.
3. International know-how matters. As a seller, did you know 25% of all purchases in Florida are from international buyers? I will demonstrate our global reach, expertise, and connections. If you are a global buyer, I have a Florida real estate book dedicated to educating you. I am a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) and have worked with numerous international buyers.
Lisa's expertise lies in the listing side of the real estate business. As a key member of the Investments In Sarasota team, Lisa leads marketing, video, and technology initiatives that set the team apart. With a focus on creating compelling property stories and state-of-the-art digital marketing, Lisa ensures that each listing shines and reaches potential buyers across the globe.
Together with Lee, Lisa co-founded Investments In Sarasota, drawing inspiration from their time living above a bakery in Lucca, Italy. During this time, they authored "Your Guide to Florida Property Investment", combining their love of real estate with their passion for travel and culture.
Lisa's impressive credentials include an MBA in Marketing from Duke University and a BA in Humanities from the University of Chicago. She has worked in a variety of roles, managing teams within both Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurial start-ups. Throughout her career, Lisa has been at the forefront of technological innovation, earning regional and national awards for her work at Control Data Corporation, including National Fast Track, Rookie-of-the-Year, and the Vice-President's Award.
"Thank you for all your help during my recent home-buying experience. I had so little idea of how to buy a home and couldn’t have done it without you! From the first time you showed me property in 2010, you have been the go-to guy during my periodic, on, and off-property hunts. That is a long time for you to patiently humor these periodic urges. And it finally paid off! Since I made an offer on the house sight unseen and did the closing from Indiana, it was a huge challenge for me. You patiently helped me through the many steps of the process. Your recommended team during the purchase was kind, understanding, and helpful- especially the mortgage and insurance brokers. Your advice was invaluable to me, particularly the homestead recommendations, inspection arrangement, interaction with the lawyer, etc., and just all-around support. I thank you sincerely."by Jane Daniel - Mainland Sarasota Buyer
"We have had a fantastic experience with Lee and Lisa at Investments in Sarasota. From our first contact through taking possession of our new place in Siesta Key (and beyond), Lee and Lisa have guided us all the way and are incredibly knowledgeable and responsive! We’d recommend Investments In Sarasota for anyone who wants to work with the best in the business."by Michael Pekkarinen - Siesta Key Beach Buyer
"Lee created a wonderful buying experience. He was informative, educational, transparent, and honest. Lee and his team were never rushed or created a pressured environment. Lee introduced us to Longboat Key and all its offerings not knowing if were committed to the island. We ended up investing in LBK and Lee assisted in the whole process. Our best real estate acquisition experience. I highly recommend Investments In Sarasota."by Irv Dennis - Buyer on Longboat Key
"My husband and I cannot say enough about our wonderful experience working with Lee and Lisa. Together they made the purchase and transition of our new home move extremely smoothly. They were there to answer every question along the way no matter how big or small. We purchased our beautiful home from out of state and Lee and Lisa were consistently available and able to give knowledgeable referrals for our future needs. We highly recommend Investments in Sarasota for all your real estate needs."by Debbie & Pete T. - Buyer on Siesta Key
I first met Lee Mirman when he was hosting an open house for a property on Lido Key several years ago. He was knowledgeable of the local market on Lido, Siesta, and Longboat. So when we were ready to buy a new place, we looked at numerous homes in the area, and with each home, Lee got to know what we liked and didn’t like and ultimately we found a home we love on Longboat Key. At the same time, Lee and his team went to work on marketing our condo. They brought in a fabulous photographer and videographer to showcase our home online. We had multiple contracts and ultimately Lee and his team was wonderful in keeping the transaction moving along and getting to closing.by Gloria H. - Seller on Lido, Buyer on Longboat
Lee and Lisa did an outstanding job for us – both selling our house and buying our condo. They went way above and beyond our expectations. They provide excellent advice on all aspects of the “lifestyle change” that one undergoes when changing your primary residence. They take a holistic approach to the process, are fair, and always try to do the “right thing.” By far, the best realtors we have ever worked with.by Ron Shapiro - Lido Key Seller, Downtown Sarasota Buyer
