Danny Williams Is A Veteran Florida REALTOR® Who Has Overseen All Aspects Of Real Estate Sales And Management

SARASOTA, Florida—(September 16, 2010)—Danny Williams has been named Managing Broker for the two St. Armands Circle offices of Michael Saunders & Company, it was announced today from the firm’s headquarters in downtown Sarasota, Florida. 

Williams will manage the company’s flagship office on St. Armands Circle, located at 61 South Boulevard of the Presidents.  It was from this location, which presently houses more than 60 of the firm’s 550-plus agents, that Michael Saunders launched the company more than 34 years ago.   He will also manage the firm’s newest storefront location on St. Armands Circle. That office, located at 330 John Ringling Boulevard, was opened in January 2007. 

A graduate of the University of Central Florida, Danny Williams recently relocated to Sarasota from the Orlando/Winter Park area where he was a top-selling agent and assistant manager with Coldwell Banker.  In 2007, he was awarded that company’s prestigious Legends Society designation for logging over $47 million in closed sales.  Williams also owned and operated his own real estate company in Winter Park and has been an instructor with the Bert Rodgers School of Real Estate, where he helped more than 30,000 students successfully achieve licensure.  He also conducted continuing education classes, courses in condominium law and sales training sessions.

In 2009, Williams became assistant manger of Coldwell Banker’s Winter Park office—which houses more than 150 agents.  As part of his managerial responsibilities there, he conducted weekly instructional and training sessions on such timely topics as short sales, real estate contracts and purchasing bank-owned properties.  As both a company owner and managing broker, he has overseen all aspects of real estate—including commercial sales and leasing, new luxury condominium development and pre-sales; and residential re-sales.

In his spare time, Williams enjoys a good game of tennis, when he isn’t out fishing; and is very proud of his two sons, both college students.

“We are very fortunate to have quickly discovered Danny right here in our own market area just as we were preparing to launch a nationwide search for the best candidate to manage these two very important and strategic locations,” said Michael Saunders, the company’s founder and CEO.  “Though a recent transplant to our area, Danny has spent a considerable amount of time here over the years and has developed a keen understanding and familiarity with our region.

He will not only make a superb manager for our two teams on St. Armands Circle, but Danny’s breadth of experience makes him a valuable asset to out exceptional leadership team. Drayton and I are confident that he will hit the ground running as we rush headlong into the final quarter of 2010.”
