Michael Saunders & Company Opens New Office in Downtown Punta Gorda

The Firm's 22nd Office Will Specialize in Properties Throughout the Charlotte Harbor Region
PUNTA GORDA, Florida—(April 12, 2010)—Michael Saunders & Company is pleased to announce a new full-service real estate office to serve Punta Gorda and the Charlotte Harbor region. Now open for business, the newest branch of the 34-year-old independent real estate company—based in Sarasota and founded by Southwest Florida native Michael Saunders—is located at 101 Taylor Street in the heart of downtown Punta Gorda; just one block south of the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center.
The Punta Gorda office specializes in the sale of residential and commercial properties throughout the region; and includes mortgage, title, relocation, commercial leasing and property management services. In addition, the company’s Assets Management and Short Sale Divisions offer specialized expertise in these complex but increasingly common types of property transactions. Moreover, sellers who list their home with the Punta Gorda office of Michael Saunders & Company enjoy the added benefit of having their homes cross-marketed to the firm’s other 22 offices throughout Southwest Florida.
“Punta Gorda is the ideal market for expanding our customer service model within our home region,” said Michael Saunders from her office in downtown Sarasota. “We chose Punta Gorda for reasons not unlike why so many newcomers choose to buy first or second homes here. Beyond its obvious beauty and abundant lifestyle opportunities, the business climate in Punta Gorda is amazingly positive, proactive and welcoming. We’re truly looking forward to being an active corporate citizen of this amazing community.”
Punta Gorda is where Hurricane Charley roared ashore on August 13th, 2004. Though many of the city’s landmarks were damaged or destroyed, the storm’s wrath failed to undermine the community’s hometown feeling or sense of civic harmony, two factors that have continually landed Punta Gorda atop the national media’s short-list of the most livable small towns in America.
“Punta Gorda’s is a textbook example of how a city, its government, businesses and citizens can forge a comeback of epic proportions when they put aside any differences or bureaucratic squabbles, roll-up their sleeves and unite in a common cause,” Ms. Saunders added. “I wish they could bottle the incredible business vibe of this community for mass consumption everywhere. I’m thrilled to be a part of such a positive, can-do city.”
The Punta Gorda office of Michael Saunders & Company is open daily from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. until 4:30 on weekends. It can be reached by calling (941) 639-0000.
