It is a true honor to have the opportunity
to write an acknowledgement of Kathy…
Kathy and Todd Callahan are a talented team who exceeded our expectations! We were referred to Kathy by a Naples realtor. Within a month, we closed on a beautiful LBK property. Kathy was our point person; but we soon realized Todd was available to work on our behalf as well. They created an efficient process. They understood what was important to us, and were knowledgeable and thorough. They made us feel as if they were looking out for our best interests. Michael Saunders and Company hit a home run with these two!

Kathy and Todd were terrific in helping us sell our house. They were always available to answer our questions and took care of all details in the sale guiding us through the entire process. Their marketing of our property was way above anything we expected. They were professional in every way always keeping us informed. We would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home.

Todd and Kathy went above and beyond our expectations in helping us purchase property in LBK. They took care of everything from ordering inspections, to getting necessary electrical work done quickly prior to closing, to helping get rid of unwanted furniture. Their local knowledge is a tremendous asset for LBK buyers and sellers. Most highly recommend the Callahans!!
“Kathy Callahan rocks the realtor world. She provided incredible service, focus, and determination for my wife and I in the purchase of our Longboat Key property. But that’s now where Mrs. Callahan ends. Her greatest asset is her “Personal Touch” that she afforded us after the sale of our Sanctuary Condo. She made sure that we had the best possible moving experience. Bottom line, she was head and shoulders above any realtor we ever delt with. Absolute praise to Kathy Callahan”
“We absolutely love Kathy and Todd Callahan. They are exceptional realtors who provide excellent service in purchasing your dream home!! They are experts knowing everything about Sarasota and Longboat Key and are extremely helpful in the process you need to go through before getting to closing!!”
“Can’t say enough positive things about Kathy Callahan. My purchase was made difficult by the seller not wanting to sell their home, yet Kathy remained calm and persistent, and resilient. She kept me from getting stressed, and because of her perseverance, I was able to buy the home. No pressure, no drama – just professional and friendly service is what you can expect from Kathy. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the area. 5 stars for Kathy, and she will be my agent on Long Boat Key for years to come. Thank you, Kathy!”
“A recent transplant from NY I felt fortunate to meet Kathy. Her knowledge, professionalism and down-to-earth demeanor were great! We will continue to work with her in our search.”

“We just bought a piece of paradise in Longboat Key. Kathy was just outstanding throughout the whole process. She helped us with all the matters, always with a big smile and a positive attitude. She was definitely the one responsible to make this dream come true. Since we live in California, not only the distance, but also the time zone difference, not to mention the pandemic, were all huge obstacles to enable this real estate transaction to happen. Nevertheless, Kathy was always there to put everything together making things easier on us. She negotiated fairly, and perfectly organized appointments, inspections, attorney’s meetings on our behalf. On April 15, 2021, we finally closed on a beautiful condo. We are so grateful and especially lucky to have found Kathy to help us on our search of the perfect vacation home. We can’t thank her enough. Kathy became a friend for life. She is kind, honest, hardworking, patient, a super human being. Thank you Kathy for everything!!!! We look forward to enjoying the beaches and sunsets in Longboat Key. “
“I can’t say enough about Kathy as a broker and as a person. Came up from Chicago and was looking to buy a house on Long Boat Key with another family. That means Kathy has two clients instead of one. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market and found us a great “Florida House”. In addition, she has been extremely helpful post closing helping us through a rehab of the house. She has already made her deal but she continues to take care of us. I now consider Kathy both a business associate and a friend. Best realtor experience of my life.”
“Kathy is the most attentive agent who goes above and beyond to help you buy or sell your home! We are still looking for the perfect home but I know she will be the one to find it for us. She is very knowledgeable and professional and so personable as well!”
Kathy Callahan is Six Stars!! My family has been on LBK for close to 50 years and this being the first and only time we have considered the need to sell our beautiful condo, Kathy Callahan has become our expert mentor, guidance and beacon. The experience of working with Kathy is nothing short of having a “family member’ by our side and the result has been one of the most satisfying and successful real-estate experiences we have ever had anywhere in the world. I recommend to anyone selling or buying a home on LBK to contact Kathy, without exception. Thank you Kathy for this amazing opportunity to work with you and the Michael Saunders and Company.
Kathy, there is a special quality about you and the excellence you bring to your clients. My brother Jon and I could not be more confident and thrilled to have you as our agent to sell our family property on Longboat Key. You are both a joy and I think that we will make you an honorary family member as a result of your dedication and quality of work. Thank you for all that you are doing for my family and you make selling our family condo with all our special memories so lovely. As we say in our family…..to be continued as we move forward in this process of selling our unit. So many thanks from the heart…

My husband and I decided we would like to try something a little different for the winter and head south. We had no idea which coast of Florida but friends gave us a few recommendations. We spent a week traveling and while in Tampa I told my husband I think we need to go back to Sarasota. Rodney and I loved Siesta Key, Longboat Key, and the Sarasota area. So we headed back.
Luckily, we happened to drive by your office in Longboat Key and just decided to turn in even though we were looking for a rental. This is where I feel Kathy was our “Little Angel”. She happened to be working around the front desk and offered to help. Even though she is in sales she said she would be glad to take our information and pass it on to your rental person. We left with a Michael Saunders folder, a few places to ride by, and a promise she would be back in touch.
From this point, Kathy made it her mission to find us a home for the winter. She called me the next day and found out we had started back to North Carolina. Kathy said I will look into a few places for you. She found three condos and face timed me while she walked through so I could see them. Kathy found the perfect condo for us! She negotiated the price and everything we needed to complete the lease.
This is our “Happy Ever After” ending. We loved Longboat Key! We played tennis, rode bikes, enjoyed restaurants and all the things that the area has to offer. Kathy kept in touch during our visit. We decided this was a special place and we needed to come back. Kathy showed us many properties and finally the right condo with the most awesome view came on the market! We made a couple of trips back to Florida. Rodney and I are so happy to have our “Little home with the view”. It’s all because of Kathy Callahan. Kathy goes beyond her job description. Not only was she a wonderful realtor for us, I feel like I have a special friend. It was a true blessing turning into Michael Saunders and being greeted by Kathy.
