Longboat Key Real Estate

1940's Longboat, looking toward Anna Maria Island

Longboat Key was the special grounds of the Timucuan and Caloosa Indians. Shell mounds have been found that show they had picnics and fish fries on Longboat Key.

In 1539 Hernando DeSoto visited Longboat Key with his scout, Juan Anasco, who manned their longboat as it went through the north pass.

In 1891 Civil War veteran Thomas Mann settled with his grown sons on the north end of Longboat Key. He was awarded 144 acres as a homestead grant. One of his sons received an additional 144 acres on the southern end of the Key. Mann sold his property in approximately 1900. Longboat Key was incorporated in 1955.

Thank you to our clients for this award!   In Our Client's Words

We are working with properties every day: Beach and bay front homes, condos, golf course homes, maintenance-free homes, planned communities, homes with charm, family neighborhoods, the downtown art area, gated and golf communities and new homes. 


Our experience can make the deal happen: We know of properties that are not on the market yet, we know the differences in writing Manatee and Sarasota contracts to save you money and when negotiating a contract our experience can help you get the property that you want. Ethics counts when you want a level playing field and hard work is critical when you want the best.

You've got a life. We help you make it a LIFESTYLE.
