About Jan

Jan Shoemaker Means knows and loves Florida.  She is a native Miamian who moved to Sarasota 17 years ago.  She has always appreciated the natural beauty that is everywhere from the glistening water to the magnificent oak trees.  This part of nature drew her to her favorite homes…those on the water and those uniquely private.  She believes that most people are looking for their own little niche.  Sarasota is known for its diversity, and has the unique appeal of combining a small town feel with a big town opportunity.

Being an experienced realtor for over 15 years, she will work with you through the entire process of buying and/or selling your home.  She is dedicated to giving you personalized service, outstanding communication and has the professional know-how that brings you results. Her goal, if selling your home, is to ensure that your property is sold in the shortest amount of time, for the highest price and with ease.  Whether you are a first time buyer, looking for that magnificent dream home on the water or relocating...all are accomplished with great fun and little inconvenience to you.  She recognizes the true value of our community and is proud to show it off.

Jan Shoemaker Means has the integrity.imagination.insight that you will come to know and will want to work with over and over again.
