Lloyd Johnson knows Sarasota real estate. His 35 years in the Sarasota area as a waterfront specialist, mostly as a broker-owner, bring confidence and focus to the process of buying and selling. A commitment to professional service, with integrity at the core, is the foundation of his practice. He was awarded the ‘Special Award’ by the Venice Board of Realtors for his ‘enduring commitment to our professional ... more.ideals.’
Originally from New York, Lloyd first came to Sarasota in 1968 where he lived on Casey Key for almost four decades. In 1980, he became managing broker for Shaw Realty, and in 1987 he bought the firm to establish Shaw Johnson Realty. At the time it was regarded as the ‘market maker’ for Casey and Manasota Keys. After selling the business in 2001, Lloyd moved downtown, before taking a well-deserved hiatus in 2009. He is returning to the industry with the long-standing market leader, Michael Saunders & Company.
Lloyd earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration, and formerly served on a variety of committees, and as a director for the Venice Area Board of Realtors. While on Casey Key, he served the community as interim director of civil defense, and as a director for the Casey Key Water Association. Besides real estate, he enjoys outdoor sports including sailing, tennis and open water swimming. ...less.
