Janet Walter’s roots run deep in the community, and it is this expertise that she brings to her clients whether she is helping them sell their properties or find the right home. When she moved to the area 21 years ago from St. Louis, she initially lived on Lido Beach and for the past 13 years has been on the north end of Longboat Key. Having spent family vacations and spring breaks on Longboat, she knew from the start that she would love it there. Now working out of Michael Saunders & Company’s south Longboat Key office, Janet enjoys helping others make this area their home. She works from Anna Maria to Casey Key with a particular emphasis on Longboat, downtown Sarasota, and waterfront properties. Prior to entering residential real estate, Janet was a marketing manager with Sarasota Square Mall and Southgate Plaza, where her responsibilities included commercial leasing and overseeing a major renovation. That experience helps her assist buyers who are drawn to new homes and condos, including a $4 million downtown penthouse she recently placed under contract. The years she spent with the malls also gave her an extensive background in marketing, deepened her sphere of influence within the community, put her in contact with many nonprofits, and developed relationships with local news media — all of which benefit clients whose property she lists. Janet is family oriented and community minded. She is a graduate of Leadership Sarasota and has co-chaired many events, including Asolo Rep’s Grand Gala, Top Dog for Donte’s Den, and Brandy’s Wish Foundation. Janet also has been active in the Parent Teacher Student Societies at her two daughters’ schools. Her free time is spent with her family and a host of household pets. She particularly loves horseback riding with her girls who are competitive hunter jumpers. SCENE
