Originally from Staten Island, New York, Anita Shelare has an exceptional business pedigree and well-earned reputation for providing the highest level of customer satisfaction. An early baby boomer whose ambition was to be an independent career girl, Anita graduated from Marymount School, Tarrytown, NY and Wheaton College, MA and finally "arrived" in New York City!

Starting as a secretary, her first b... more.reak came when her boss at CBS Publishing offered CBS support for a graduate course at NYU in Market Research if she got an “A” in the course! Not only did she ace it, but she earned a promotion in the department and continued at NYU as a night student, earning her MBA from the prestigious Stern School in June 1975. Anita will always be grateful to CBS for that opportunity. Since then, she has played a wide variety of sales and marketing roles, spending ten years at major New York advertising agencies, two years in St. Louis at AT&T Communications, and later representing a privately-owned Direct Marketing Services company in Chicago and one in Dallas.

The best thing about marrying at 49 was that it brought her to Sarasota! And, that they both moved on amicably two years later. Anita had already been trained as a Financial Advisor by Smith Barney and spent eight years with them. Since then, she has concentrated her energies on being a residential Realtor® based in Lakewood Ranch - for Lakewood Ranch Realty (when it was owned by SMR, the developer of Lakewood Ranch) and for the last thirteen years with Michael Saunders & Company.

Her proven ability to aid customers with quality advice and guidance in real estate matters earned her the title, “Five Star Best in Client Satisfaction”. She also has held a “GREEN Certified Real Estate – Green Leadership” designation since 2007 and has long been focused on positive changes in new construction and new community development in Lakewood Ranch.

Balancing her passion for real estate and the Sarasota scene, Anita is a season subscriber to performances by The Sarasota Orchestra, The Sarasota Opera and The Sarasota Institute of Lifetime Learning’s Global Affairs Lectures. Anita is a contributor to the MSC Foundation, providing funds to local organizations that offer shelter, sustenance, education, and a path to self-sufficiency. She loves to stay active and is still an avid tennis fan, although she no longer plays. Now, her workouts tend toward water aerobics classes and gentle yoga.

With such a seasoned background, Anita is particularly well-qualified to serve Sarasota’s 55+ customer base. Her unique perspective has helped many of her real estate customers to better assess their options in making a move here and to make good choices. For top-notch customer service, savvy business acumen, and a true understanding of the Sarasota lifestyle, call Anita for all your real estate needs.
