Real Estate

From residential real estate closings to complex commercial transactions, our real estate team has provided counsel on a full range of matters, including financing, taxation, land use, planned development, condominiums, and contracting, to our area’s real estate professionals, buyers, sellers, developers, and investors since our founding in 1925.

Williams Parker’s impact on the real estate community and the evolution of Sarasota dates back to our founding partners and includes the development of many local residential communities, including The Meadows, The Landings, The Plantation Golf and Country Club, Palm Aire, Colonial Oaks, Pelican Cove, Bird Bay, and much of Longboat Key and Bay Isles.

We also assist new residents in establishing residency and transitioning estates to take advantage of Florida’s favorable tax climate and asset protection laws.

Our real estate team includes 15 attorneys–nine of whom are board certified as specialists in real estate or condominium and planned development law–and 14 real estate paralegals and legal assistants.
