Barbara Anson Realty and Associates


Local Expertise

In 1988, Barbara Anson Realty and Associates was created to fill a void in real estate sales in eastern Manatee County. At that time, there were very few sales associates selling acreage in Myakka City. Barbara Anson, a long-time resident of the area, saw the potential growth opportunities and started a brokerage firm. Thirty seven years later, she and her associates have logged over $100 million in sales and have dominated the area in both residential and commercial sales.

Every day the real estate industry is becoming more sophisticated and challenging. It takes a professional that understands the industry and is positioned to stay ahead of the game. Researching market values, tracking sales history and informing the public of the property for sale has earned Barbara a reputation as an industry leader.

From large scale land developmental projects to small one-acre residential homes, Barbara Anson knows the history of the area and the potential of the land. Understanding a client’s goals are the cornerstone to what has made Barbara's agency a success.

Whether you are just “window shopping” or have an immediate need, contact Barbara or one of her associates today.
