About Kathleen Comerford

Let The Comerford Group Be Your Key to Your Real Estate Success!

I am a Broker and REALTOR, connecting buyers and sellers around the world. The Comerford Group is able to provide customers with exceptional service, expertise and professionalism that goes above and beyond what is typical. My ability to apply my extensive knowledge in real estate in creative ways, to successfully negotiate on behalf of both buyers and sellers, and to conduct business with the utmost fairness to all parties are the standards by which I do business.

I have been extremely fortunate to work in many different disciplines of real estate over the years. Originally from New York, I began my career with distinguished firms such as Credit Suisse First Boston, Citigroup and Deutsche Bank. As a real estate investment banking professional, I represented my employers’ interests in international hotel construction, loan securitizations, private equity funds and direct real estate investments. As an investor and developer, I have represented myself and others in the development of noteworthy residential restorations and new construction. Now, as a Broker Associate and Realtor, I represent both buyers and sellers in the sale of residential properties, raw land, new construction, and real estate investments. Selling real estate in the greater Sarasota area is the culmination of and reward for all those years of hard work and I consider myself very fortunate to live and work here!
