LAKEWOOD RANCH, FLORIDA – Sarasota native Jennifer LaGasse Flanders has joined Keller Williams Realty Sarasota-Lakewood Ranch. Formerly of Prudential Palms Realty, Flanders helped her husband manage the 10-year-old Flanders Gas business before turning her extensive local knowledge to the real estate profession.

“Right off the bat, I knew that I would like it at Keller Williams Realty,” Flanders said. “Keller Williams Realty has a lot to offer its agents in terms of training, education and support, and the management and staff are very friendly and helpful.”

"Jennifer brings great market knowledge and a fresh approach to marketing which is an asset to her clients and the Keller Williams team,” said CEO/Team Leader Kevin Cahill. “We are proud to welcome her to the Keller Williams Realty Sarasota-Lakewood Ranch family!"

A graduate of Riverview High School, Flanders went on to study psychology at Georgia College & State University before returning to Sarasota.
