Sally Schowalter has dedicated over 40 years working in various roles within the real estate industry which has provided her with an unparalleled level of expertise to draw upon while working with her Clients today. Originally from the Washington, D.C area, Sally was recognized as a top producer and award winner both as a residential real estate Agent and then as a mortgage loan originator. She transitioned into Corporate companies working first as a Client Service Manager facilitating transactions in the Government marketplace (VA and FHA) and later as a Sales Executive of transaction software solutions to medium and large lending institutions. In this capacity, Sally was also a liaison to their User Group as well as to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on automated underwriting.
In 2002, Sally accepted a position with the United States Marshals Service (USMS), Asset Forfeiture Division. She was responsible for negotiating and oversaw both the property management and sales of more than 2,000 residential and commercial properties in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, which were forfeited by the United States Attorney's office due to illegal activity. Her negotiating and industry knowledge was key to maximizing the sales volume on these high-profile properties which in turn, provided multi millions of dollars returned to the victims or the local law enforcement agencies.
Seeking sunshine and a less stressful pace, Sally and her family relocated to the Sarasota/Venice area in 2015 where she has enjoyed returning to work with Buyers and Sellers in a field she is passionate about. Her knowledge of our local area combined with her superior customer service, communication, and negotiating skills have been embraced by both local and relocation Families. Sally has quickly build a local real estate reputation around her diligent work ethic to achieve her customer's real estate goals and to make each transaction to go as smoothly as possible from Listing, to Contract and ultimately to a successful Closing.
Sally is active in her community embracing the Florida lifestyle and enjoying water sports, Bridge and Al Fresco entertaining. She enjoys sharing her enthusiasm with her neighbors and those new to the area.
