About Beth Dilley

I have lived and worked in Sarasota for over 20 years. As a former corporate executive, I recognize the importance of accountability and a strong work ethic. In a real estate transaction, you are the chairman of the board. The purchase or sale of your home is the primary objective. As your realtor, I hold myself accountable for achieving that objective…no excuses.

Of course, achieving your objective is the beginning of a successful partnership, not the end. The skill and experience I have acquired over the years helps make every real estate transaction a pleasure for my clients. I am a certified mediator and facilitator…a strong asset while you are negotiating the purchase or sale of your home. As an executive responsible for managing many complex projects and deadlines…you can rest assured that your closing will go smoothly. After closing, I remain in close contact with my former clients, eager to help them get the most enjoyment from their new home.

I truly believe that people should give back to their community. That is why I have served or I am presently serving the following local organizations:

Venice Chamber of Commerce – Past President
Manatee Community College Foundation - Past Board Member
Sarasota YMCA - Past Board Member
Sarasota Foundation Education - Past Board Member
Leadership Sarasota - Graduate Class of 1992
Meals on Wheels -Volunteer
‘SPARCC’ - Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center of Sarasota - Volunteer
Pine Shores Presbyterian Church - Member
My service with these organizations and their respective community leaders has broadened my understanding of Sarasota’s past, present and future, another great asset to my clients.

Professionally, I hold the following credentials: I am a Cerftified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE®),
Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI) and Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource Certified (SFR®).

As a final note, my future success can best be judged by my past success. And my past success can only be judged by my former clients and employers. Please take a moment to review some the Testimonials on this site. I would love to add your testimonial to the list.

I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank the person(s) who voted our team "Best in Client Satisfaction". Sarasota Magazine with Crescendo Business Services and an independent research firm surveyed 19,000 Sarasota area residents who have recently purchased homes. The magazine and research firm were on a quest to find out "which real estate agents have consistently wowed their clients". Surveyed recipients were asked to evaluate agents based on the following criteria: customer service, communication, finding the right home, integrity, negotiation, marketing the home, market knowledge, clsoing preparation, and overall satisfaction. Sarasota Magazine published the recipients of the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014 FIVE STAR BEST IN CLIENT SATISFACTION distinction, we were delighted to find out we were one of the chosen few for the past 6 years in a row. I want to express our gratitude to the buyers who nominated us and gave us an outstanding evaluation. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you.



All the best,

Beth E. Dilley
