The Singers have long been familiar faces on Bird Key, where the mother-daughter team are longtime residents and focus the lion’s share of their real estate expertise. Audrey has been listing and selling properties on Bird Key since 1972, where she has literally watched it grow from a treeless, sandy island into a lush bayside enclave of fine homes—many of them enjoying shimmering waterfront locations and magnificent views of Sarasota Bay. Raised on Bird Key, Jill also has a deeply ingrained command of its island neighborhoods.“Drayton and I are thrilled to welcome the two women whose partnership epitomizes expertise in Bird Key real estate,” Michael Saunders said from her office in downtown Sarasota. “Audrey was the first Realtor in Sarasota to focus her professional activities solely on the key. When Jill followed in her footsteps, by choosing real estate as a career, they formed a team whose combined familiarity with Bird Key properties is second to none. We couldn’t be more delighted to recommend Audrey and Jill to anyone who has an interest in buying, selling or simply leaning more about the properties and lifestyle that define Bird Key.”Born in New York City, Audrey graduated from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie and marketed stocks and mutual funds before moving with her husband Bob, then the CEO of a Canadian manufacturing firm, to Florida. Jill was born in Toronto, came to Bird Key early in life and was steeped in the real estate business by both parents who had since shifted their careers into the marketing and sales of Bird Key properties.Jill went on to attend the world renowned Fashion Institute of Technology, in New York City, where she was awarded a bachelor’s degree in marketing before successfully working her way up the ranks of R.H. Macy & Company to senior executive status.The Singers have sold more homes on Bird Key than any other Realtors—some properties many times over—and in doing so have consistently garnered the top awards in their field. Not a few of their sales represent repeat business from customers whose satisfaction with their expert marketing skills brings them back again and again. First-time customers are treated with equal respect, attention to detail and the team’s good-natured approach to doing business.Audrey and Jill Singer can be reached by calling (941) 350-2588; or by email at AudreySinger at michaelsaunders.com
