Sara's passion for real estate and the Gulf Coast lifestyle comes from a mix of familial heritage and a love of adventure. A culturally minded, relationship-management entrepreneur with 10 years of business experience, Sara's value proposition rests on her ability to navigate all ranks, social classes, industries and topics with compassion, grace, sophistication, and authenticity.
Sara relocated from New York City to the Sarasota area with her family in 2018 and renovated her very first home. Having spent more than 10 years around the real estate industry due to her family, this firsthand experience from contract to close sparked a strong desire to serve others trying to find their forever home, next investment property or first home.
Cultural respect and awareness have guided Sara throughout her life and led her around the world studying in Florence, Italy, and Madrid, Spain after receiving her degrees in public relations and Italian studies from the University of Florida (Go Gators!). While in Spain, she furthered her professional studies and earned a certification in photography. This skill along with her adoration of the world's finest classical artwork ignited her entrepreneurial spirit, and she returned to New York as a content developer before founding her own business, Tutti del Monte Photography. Here she was integral in developing campaign assets for well-known brands including Lululemon, Brunello Cucinelli, Sixty Hotels, Darling Magazine, Palermo Skincare, Yoga Vida, Impish Lee, and Malabella Jewels.
Sara is a proud mother of her active and joyful son, Levi. They love spending time boating with family and friends, at the beach, or anywhere outdoors. Being an islander from birth by way of Puerto Rico has made Sara passionate about the sun and sea. She enjoys keeping active and can usually be found engaging some type of fitness whether that's biking, walking, doing yoga, or working out at the gym.
You can do no better than Sara Del Monte! Sara and I began this Siesta Key Condo endeavor almost 8 months ago and even though I may have lost focus, she never did! From the very beginning it was very easy to tell that she was always looking out for my best interests, constantly open to feedback, and relentless in finding me the right property for me and my future! She went above and beyond scheduling meetings, walk throughs, inspections and everything imaginable even while I was all the way across the country. Even though she may be new to this business, she's a fast study, passionate about her clients, and really loves to make people happy. I wish I could purchase another property just to go through the adventure again with her! I would highly recommend Sara to everyone who's looking for a professional, thorough, and dedicated agent to help them with their real estate needs in the Sarasota area!

This past August I had the pleasure of purchasing a great condo with Sara's guidance. Prompt, personable and responsive, Sara made a three-week to close transaction go smoothly. Covid notwithstanding, inspections, repairs, inventories, attorneys, condo association.... it all got done.... Thanks Sara! Brian McSweeney
