I have been helping friends, locals, snowbirds, first-time home buyers and investors to purchase and sell real estate in Venice, Osprey, Sarasota and Bradenton for over 38 years. If you want to work with a pleasant, dedicated and motivated Realtor, ready to give you 100%, please consider contacting me. I have a reputation and I am proud of it!
I specialize in assisting buyers and sellers in Sarasota, Bradenton, Longboat Key, Venice, and Siesta Key. Our market has experienced incredible growth in the last few years and has become one of the most desirable and sought after areas to live in. As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. EXIT King Realty offers exceptional office support and is comparable to a close-knit family, where agents share their expertise, resources and technical skills.
I am also a licensed and certified occupational therapy assistant. With my added expertise with seniors and people with disabilities I can help with modification recommendations with new purchases, remodeling suggestions for aging in place, or for making accommodations for increased independence and safety in your new home or condo.
I was a teacher in a previous life, working with children and young adults in religious schools and informal youth group settings. This was a rewarding experience. All the skills I have acquired over the years, working in a variety of workplaces with a variety of age groups, have worked well for me, in the real estate industry. I am proud to be a Five Star Professional and a Top Producer at EXIT King Realty.
"I can't say enough good things about my experience working with Annette. From day one, she was proactive and dedicated to bringing in potential buyers. She is certainly willing to go the extra mile whether it's holding as many open houses as necessary or offering recommendations for staging that will bring in the buyers. Annette was always checking to make sure I was happy with the process and really listened to me and addressed my concerns - such as increasing interest rates and Hurricane Ian specifically! This is not my first experience with selling a home, but it's certainly one of the best experiences I've had with a realtor! I highly recommend Annette if you're in the market for a realtor! "

"I've been in the Real Estate Commercial Devp't business for 44 yrs in Sarasota. Due to extenuating circumstances we were required to move during the highest area market upswing in residential sales prices in yrs. Even with my years of experience with bad actors, the process of finding a home during that time was excruciatingly painful. Then we met Annette. She took us under her wing and even put up with my bad attitude. We made a couple offers but nothing was working out until she called one day and asked us to look at a house that was about to go on the market that a colleague had listed and advised that she could get us a 'sneak' preview. We submitted a contract that day and it was accepted. Annette was at all times diligent, on top of the details, caring and attentive. Her follow-up was flawless. Everything went without a hitch. If I were ever to have to do this again, or if I am able to recommend an agent to anyone with great confidence, the only one I would go to would be Annette"

"Annette was great to work with. She has an eye for detail and kept us informed in every step of our home purchase. Additionally, she did a good job representing us to the sellers. Kirshner is professional and systematic in the way she works.. Her advice was solid. My wife and I are very pleased with how things turned out!"
-Rick Mogelson, Client
"Annette has represented us through a couple of home sales and purchase with the last sale being cash in less than 30 days through an open house! I highly recommend this personable and thorough lady for any real estate transaction you may have. "
