Robin Leonardi has joined Michael Saunders & Company’s Siesta Key office as a real estate agent.
Leonardi is an entrepreneur and seasoned sales executive who has lived in Sarasota since 2002. Before joining Michael Saunders & Company, she was the senior account executive for The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee for over 14 years. During her tenure there, she increased the organization’s annual advertising revenue by more than 200 percent, worked as a liaison for corporate sponsorships, and was responsible for creating and implementing marketing strategies. Prior to that, Leonardi lived on the Big Island of Hawaii where she owned and operated several successful businesses, including a fine art gallery, a boutique, a custom furniture manufacturing company, and a Mexican restaurant.
Leonardi says she was moved to join the real estate profession following a recent personal homebuying encounter. “I was impressed by the personalized, professional and seamless experience, as well as my agent’s level of integrity and dedication. It was inspirational, and I felt the transition to real estate was a natural progression and a perfect fit for my talents and sales expertise.”
Leonardi explains that her slogan, “The Leonardi Touch,” signals that she provides a personal touch that goes beyond a sales transaction. “I take a concierge approach to real estate, as life can be complicated but finding or selling a home doesn’t have to be. My intimate knowledge of the community allows me to assist the buyer or seller along every step of the way—from information about schools, lifelong learning opportunities and subcontractors to Sarasota’s rich cultural offerings and outdoor activities. I thrive on cultivating relationships and bringing people together to achieve their goals”.
Originally from New York City, Leonardi attended Mesa College in San Diego where she studied art, Eastern philosophy, and drama. Her daughter, Roxanne, attended Pine View School and is now earning her PhD at the University of South Florida. Beyond real estate, Leonardi enjoys yoga, dancing, beachcombing, and creating art.
