Sarasota, FL (January 24, 2014)—Rogers Moore, an experienced real estate professional and former owner of Flory Real Estate, has joined the Longboat Key office of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. Moore has more than 30 years of experience working with both residential and commercial buyers and sellers in the Sarasota area. In his career, he has been involved in sales totaling an excess of $100 million.
Moore began his real estate career in 1975 when he completed his real estate license and signed on as an associate with Huskey Realty in Orlando. Husky Realty was owned by E. Everette Huskey, whose son, Budge Huskey, is the current president and chief executive officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC.
In 1978, Moore was transferred to Sarasota for a new job managing the west coast district office of a large insurance company. A twist of fate brought Moore back to the real estate industry. He was looking for office space in Sarasota for his insurance business, and the owner of Flory Real Estate invited him to purchase the real estate company along with the office space. In 1980, Moore took over the real estate company, successfully operating the business for 33 years.
“I have always had an affinity for Coldwell Banker, and truth be told, I didn’t have the time or resources to train new associates in my early days at Flory. I would tell new agents to go to Coldwell Banker to get trained and learn how to list and sell first,” said Moore. “I saw the real estate market changing rapidly and knew that I needed to be with a company that has global alliances and can offer a strategic advantage for buyers and sellers.”
Moore is active in the community has served and supported various organizations including: First Presbyterian Church, Caritas Food Pantry, All Faiths Food Bank, Resurrection House, Van Wezel Foundation, Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation, Rotary Club of Sarasota, Laurel Oak Homeowners Association and the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce.
