“23 About Me” is Cookin’ with Kristy Lochead

23LogoOur series, “23 About Me,” was created to get to know the people of Michael Saunders & Company, beyond their expertise in Gulf Coast real estate.
This week, we posed our batch of investigative questions to Kristy Lochead, receptionist for the Main Street office located in downtown Sarasota. Always smiling with a cheerful personality, she has just the kind of attitude that would have helped her when, in her youth, she dreamed of becoming a backup dancer for a hugely popular American boy band.
