What Venice is like for active adults and families

Venice, Florida is an extremely pleasant community of 21,000 people located south of Sarasota on the Gulf of Mexico. Originally developed in 1925 by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers as a planned retirement community, Venice is named after the many canals and rivers running through it. Thanks to its central planning, Venice is a top rated community for adults over 55.  It has also become a wonderful, safe place to raise families giving Venice a wonderful mix.

Venice is a town with wide boulevards lined with palms and banyan trees.  Much of the town is in the northern Italian renaissance architectural style. The lively downtown has many festivals and celebrations throughout the year.  There are plenty of parks, public tennis and basketball courts and a waterway park that runs all the way up to Sarasota on the old train tracks which have been converted into a smooth, shaded paved path for walkers or bikers safe from traffic.  Just a few short blocks from the downtown is one of Florida’s best Gulf Coast beaches.  If you've never been here you owe it to yourself to at least visit and check out the possibilities.

Kathleen Stansfield is a personable, down-to-earth, knowledgeable and awesome broker! My husband and I have worked with many over the years and she is in a class by herself. Smart, analytical, tireless, responsive, not overbearing, and she listens. Without asking, she'll do cost comparisons between homes, even between communities. We were looking for a home in a golf community, and Kathleen came to our rescue and broke down all the golf memberships, fees, taxes, utilities, expenses, etc. If a problem needs to be solved, she'll offer realistic solutions. When we needed a solution to a landscaping problem, she was ready to select the shrubs and plant them herself. We are very impressed with Kathleen!


Kathleen and I have worked together on many deals.  She is top in her field and always has the best in mind for her clients.  She is tenacious and diligent in her search for the right property for her clients needs and in marketing homes for those moving on to other destinations.  I would recommend her anytime to someone buying or selling.  She is just absolutely wonderful to work with on either side of the transaction.

Kathleen Stansfield has gone the extra mile for us! It's not easy living in WV and trying to purchase property in FL, but she has gone above and beyond trying to make the process as easy and painless as possible. She asks questions to find out what we are interested in and to help her refine the search. She has also made very valued suggestions to make sure we are aware of all the different aspects of FL living. Yes, I would highly recommend Kathleen!

I recommend her service.  Since we arrived in the area of Bradenton Fl from France she has always been there to answer our questions and concerns.

Kathleen has been wonderful.  She does exactly what she says she is going to do and always answers her phone!  It's so nice to find a realtor that really believes in customer service.  We loved our experience with her and will recommend her to all our friends and family.
