Michael Saunders & Company is pleased to welcome Marta Altizer to the Mid-Longboat Key office

martaLike many Longboat Key residents, Marta Altizer began life in the great white north. Marta was born in Charlevoix Michigan and grew up in the resort town of Saugatuck, MI. While in Michigan; Marta pursued her love of art and design, earning her BA from Hope College in Liberal Art, and her MA and MFA from Western Michigan University in Art. Marta’s impressive career and experiences in art and design includes extensive work for European museums and archeology projects, as well as teaching at college level and conducting study tours across Europe.

Marta came to Siesta Key in 1993, while on a short sabbatical from a museum position. She loved the area so much she decided to make Sarasota her home. For the past 15 years she has applied her exceptional design background to several of her own projects on Longboat Key, and has also employed her skills on behalf of her customers, whether finding that architectural masterpiece for the purchase of a dream home, or highlighting the superior design and function of a selling customer’s home. 

As a member of the Longboat Key community for over 13 years, Marta has established strong ties not only in the town of Longboat Key, but also in neighboring Anna Maria where she, her husband Craig and son Nicolaas are active members of Roser Memorial Church. Marta is active in her community as an officer of the Sleepy Lagoon Homeowners Association, and a regular volunteer at Anna Maria Elementary School.
