About Jeff Swanson

Specialties: Buyer Agent
Seller Agent

Like many residents who relocate to Sarasota, Jeff Swanson began traveling to this area at a very young age. “We would drive from our home in Michigan to Venice multiple times a year. My happiest memories are here, walking the beaches, finding shark teeth, and fishing all day on the jetty,” shares Jeff. “I always knew I’d end up in Florida; the question was how?”


After Jeff graduated (with honors) from Indiana Wesleyan University with a degree in Business Management, he opted to serve his community outside Detroit, MI as a Firefighter and EMT for 10 years. He learned skiills that would serve him well later, specifically staying calm under pressure. “This helps in not giving away your negotiation strategy,” he shares. Jeff then went on to work for many years in operating room technology integration and sales, and traveling to 43 states across the country, never forgetting the beaches in Florida. One day, just outside Chicago in an ice storm, Jeff had an epiphany. “I decided there was no better time to make change than today.” The next morning, he packed his car and headed south on I-75. On his arrival, he worked with a real estate agent in his free time, and ended up falling in love with real estate. “I understood the potential for hard working agents; the agent I worked with did over $47 million in sales.”


Jeff realized he’d found his calling: the art of negotiation and getting his clients the best possible deal. “I love finding income producing properties for investors, working with former police/fire department members, and just seeing the smiles of my customers after I’ve exceeded their expectations.” Whether buying or selling, Jeff has the experience and drive to bring either type of transaction to a successful close. “I love the listing process: staging, marketing and hosting open houses. Buyers are also fun as I love to narrow down the search and find them the home of their dreams.”When he’s not busy with his customers Jeff still enjoys fishing and now lives near the beach with the love of his life Nikki. They are proud parents of a newborn daughter Mila and a Doberman named Stark, and as a former hockey player, he’s a huge Detroit Red Wings fan.
