Klaus Lang, also of Michael Saunders & Company’s South Longboat Key office, loves selling in Beachplace. Two of the most recent buyers that Klaus has worked with bought in Beachplace because they felt it was beautiful, in a great location and well maintained. One of the buyers came from Austria and chose Beachplace so they could enjoy it during their summer holiday and take advantage of the great rental possibilities at other times. They are thrilled with the development and are sending friends over to purchase.
