Marc Rasmussen has been a Sarasota resident since 1994. He graduated from University of Florida that same year with a degree in Finance, an area in which he worked for the next 6 years. After extensive work in the finance arena, including mortgage lending, which introduced him to real estate in 1998, Marc began selling real estate in 2000.
Marc saw an opportunity in internet marketing, and pioneered his own website with a client-centered focus that allows buyers to easily search through properties to fit their specific needs. His website quickly became one of the top resources for prospective Sarasota buyers, usually topping the Google ratings.
A top producing agent at several high-profile Sarasota real estate firms, such as RE/MAX Alliance, SKY Sotheby’s, and Michael Saunders, Marc decided to propel his internet success into his own business, opening DWELL Real Estate with co-broker Allison Werner in 2011. With his team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable realtors, DWELL’s mission is to raise the standards of Sarasota real estate. High levels of professionalism, strong and thorough communication with the clientele, and successfully getting our clients to the closing table are the main missions of the firm.

I appreciate the time that you spent with Kerry and me to find a place in Sarasota. I was really impressed with your knowledge of the area and your skills during the actual transaction. Thanks.
I was initially surprised that you (as the owner) picked up the phone when I first called....and that you spent so much time educating me on the phone before we even met. I was even more impressed that your first reaction wasn't to pass me off when you realized I wasn't in the big dollar range. I am glad that your efforts resulted in a sale. We are excited about the house and are looking forward to spending as much time as possible in Sarasota.
Happy to serve as a reference if you ever need one.
