Sarasota, Fla. (January 6, 2021) – Coldwell Banker Realty is proud to announce that the company’s Longboat Key office, located at 595 Bay Isles Rd., Ste. 250 in Longboat Key and comprised of over 100 sales associates, has achieved over one billion in closed real estate sales volume throughout 2020. This notable sales accomplishment solidified Coldwell Banker Realty as the No. 1 brokerage in local sales for the third year in a row. Seven of Coldwell Banker’s agents and teams ranked within the top 20 sales agents for sales production in the local Multiple Listing Service (MLS), with Roger Pettingell claiming the No. 1 spot.*
The office, which is led by managing broker Ellen C. O’Day, has multiple agents who work throughout Sarasota and Manatee counties.

“Congratulations to the Coldwell Banker affiliated agents for this phenomenal achievement in what was, and continues to be, an unprecedented and uncertain time period in our industry,” said Duff Rubin, president of Coldwell Banker Realty in Florida. “Despite the challenges of this past year, our agents answered the call and leveraged their superior real estate acumen, state-of-the-art technology, unparalleled marketing knowledge and above all, excellent client service to achieve an astounding total sales volume for the office.”
The Sarasota housing market saw a steep upswing after the lockdown was lifted in the spring, fueled by the appeal of Sarasota’s lifestyle, beautiful beaches and numerous housing options. Coldwell Banker Realty was able to leverage technology and resources to provide clients the ability to virtually tour homes to ensure expediency and safety. During 2020, the company closed a record amount of sales, with many of them occurring fully remote.
“I’m in awe of our affiliated agents and teams’ spectacular success, which is also indicative of the attractiveness, stability and strength of Sarasota and Manatee counties’ luxury market, particularly in the resale space,” said Ellen C.
