Sarah Desrosiers’ Successful Mindset That Led To Record-Setting Pine Island Sale

| April 27, 2018 | 0 Comments

Leaving behind a 12-year career in the legal field to become a full-time realtor felt like a risky decision to Sarah Desrosiers in 2016. Little did she know that within two years, she would be a critical part of a $1.87 million deal for the most expensive residential property in St. James City history.

“Moving from a salaried job wasn’t easy, but I wanted to do it to pursue my dreams of financial freedom for my family,” said Desrosiers.

Like many new agents, she struggled with balancing her start-up career with family and learning the ropes of the business. What helped her quickly move from novice to confident realtor was attending Keller Williams’ Master Mind event in 2016.

“The panelists really spoke to me,” she said. “The focus on working smarter, not harder, and making purposeful choices truly inspired me. They made me realize I could work the big deals and there were no limits to what I could accomplish.”

“It was scary, but I made it work, capping 2 months earlier in 2017 then I did my first year as a buyer’s agent in 2016.”

Desrosiers’ successes kept building and by 2018, she had used that confidence and training to put together a historic deal.

She had been working with out-of-state clients for several months as they considered purchasing a second home in Florida.

“There is nothing I enjoy more about being a realtor than helping people relocate to Southwest Florida,” she said. “I have lived in Punta Gorda for almost 30 years. I know how amazing this area is and seeing people fall in love with my hometown and helping them find ‘their place in the sun,’ as I like to say, is very rewarding for me.”

After showing several homes to her clients, she thought she finally found the right one on Pine Island. The four-bedroom, four-bath, 8,369-square-foot home was perfect. The location with access to the Gulf of Mexico was perfect. The value at $1.87 million was perfect. In short, everything was perfect.

Her clients agreed.

Working with Keller Williams agent Dennis Warson, who represented the sellers, Desrosiers made her clients’ dreams come true.

“I had no idea this was going to be a historical sale,” she said. “I was just so happy to help these people find a new home in Southwest Florida that everything else was really just a bonus for me.”“I want to encourage other agents, especially newer agents, that it can be done,” added Desrosiers. “Working hard, reaching out to your sphere, finding ways to make your business work for you, it works…it really works. The support I’ve received from the Keller Williams team has had so much to do with my success.”
