SARASOTA, FL – In 2018, Veronica Brandon Miller accepted the Impact in Action Award from the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce. The recognition was a testament to Miller’s dedication, hard work, innovation, and love for this community. With more than 30 years of creative vision and unparalleled expertise in community engagement, philanthropy, branding and marketing, Miller now brings integrity, enthusiasm, and passion to her role as a Realtor® with Michael Saunders and Company.
“Helping people has always been my passion. Now I am honored to help people with what is possibly the largest investment in their lifetime: a home,” said Miller. “This new career pursuit is one that is extremely rewarding.”

In the Sarasota-Bradenton area, Miller became well-known in part through her strategic use of various media platforms.
