Robert D. Bevington
I haven’t always been a Realtor®. However, I have enjoyed a lifetime of experience in all areas of customer service, having been employed in the Restaurant and Hospitality Industry for over 35 years. My customer service experience began in 1979 washing dishes at a local bar/restaurant as a high school student. This position led me to my first profession which included purchase, design, ownership, and management of several restaurants in Pennsylvania, two of which I still own and manage from Florida. I have also managed numerous self-owned and client-owned properties with stay lengths on furnished vacation destination properties as short as one day, to those unfurnished properties with leases extending well over five years. I strongly believe that successful property management starts with a high level of customer service to both the tenant and the property owner.
When you choose me as your real estate agent, you will be hiring someone who understands the wide variety of properties in our area of Southwest Florida, Sarasota, and Siesta Key. I am just as comfortable working with clients looking in downtown Sarasota as with those searching for Gulf Front on Siesta Key… I know the market and the many nuances that come with it.
Upon passing my licensing exam, I accepted full time position with The Showtime Group – with Keller Williams on the Water Sarasota. My skills will help you buy or sell Real Estate anywhere in Florida. My best client may be those looking to transition to Florida from another state I’ve done it personally and helped many through the process. Allow me to show you how to purchase wisely and use that home part of the time for your personal use then as an income property when you are unable to be here. The demand for short- or long-term rentals and guest stay properties is strong.
Ready to transition to Paradise- either full or part time? Ready to buy or rent a home in the sunshine? Let Me Show You Where!

My journey to the world of Real Estate began in much the same way as most of the realtors I’ve ever met. That is to say, it wasn’t my first profession! I am originally from Pennsylvania. I enjoyed a career in education which spanned nearly thirty years. As a Special educator, I facilitated success for students of varying ages and ability levels. I loved every aspect of my career and felt like I had made a positive impact of the students I worked with, as well as their parents. It was immensely rewarding!
I met my husband 22 years ago, and almost immediately became a part of “his” business, which was owning & operating restaurants. I helped mostly as a hostess, but also worked in the kitchen some nights expediting orders. I loved being the person my kitchen staff and servers could count on to make their jobs just a little bit easier. At one point, we owned three active restaurants. As we began the transition to living full-time in Florida, we sold one- leaving us currently with two, which we own and operate from Florida with the help and leadership of an amazing staff.
Fast forward to May of 2019. My husband once again helps to facilitate a career change which I never suspected would happen! I met Anna through him, and began working on her team in June, and became licensed here in Florida in July of 2019. Anna calls me an Executive Assistant, but I think of myself as her “girl Friday.” I work behind the scenes, mostly on the phone, in our paper files, and on the computer. I am once again the person behind the scenes who helps others get their jobs done. It’s a place I love to be, and as I learn more and more about the world of Real Estate, a place I am happy to call Home.

MaryAnn was born in New York City and at the age of five her family moved to the quaint, idyllic town of Maplewood, New Jersey. At a very young age she learned the importance of hard work and perseverance which came in handy when she realized that college was not an option unless she had a plan to pay her own way. Her entrepreneurial vision, negotiation skills and ability to “sell” came in handy when she and her sister built a successful catering business where they would work events on the weekends allowing her to attend Fairleigh Dickinson University ultimately earning a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management. She met her now husband John, a talented soccer player from Dublin, Ireland who was recruited to play at FDU. Upon graduation, John enjoyed a stint as a professional soccer player in New Jersey. After hanging up his “boots”, John has enjoyed a long and successful career in financial services while keeping a close watch on the international soccer scene.
After graduation, MaryAnn accepted a position at the Boston Museum of Science where she managed large scale corporate events. She continued to enjoy success as a chef and event planner only to be recruited to manage a variety of business teams at Chubb Insurance company. Her customer service focus and attention to detail and genuine interest in learning helped her to successfully merge the two career paths.
She and John lived in Westfield New Jersey and Minneapolis before starting a family. They have been blessed with three children, Jack, Grace and Thomas along with their fourth addition, Rosie, their beloved 13 year old labradoodle. Both MaryAnn and John have been extremely involved in their kids activities, including coaching and managing along with community based volunteer opportunities. As a stay-at-home mom, MaryAnn cultivated a home staging business and continued to keep a close eye on the real estate markets. Her eye for the beauty in every property has allowed her to offer expertise in home staging along with assisting her clients to maximize sale price and profitability.
Her husband’s career would move the family to Dublin, Ohio and Avon, Connecticut yet every year without fail the family would vacation on the beautiful, family friendly west coast of Florida. They now have a home in Sarasota where they enjoy the abundance of community-based events, theater, boating, golf and of course walking on the #1 beach in the country, Siesta Key.

Director of First Impressions
Stephanie was born in Princeton New Jersey but spent every summer in Long Beach Island where her fondest memories of beach life were engrained. She graduated Kutztown University in Pennsylvania with a Fine Arts degree and shortly after moved to Sarasota to attend Ringling School of Art and Design where she earned her Graphic Arts degree.
After Ringling she went to pursue a career in Graphic Arts in Orlando Florida starting with designing in print shops where she learned all about 4 color printing. She then began to work at larger companies in their marketing departments where she learned the ins and outs by taking in every bit of advice and wisdom, she could gain from the people around her.
“I was guided and mentored by some very smart people who are still friends today and I always keep in contact to see what insight I can gain from their ongoing experiences in the industry.”
After working for several companies Stephanie went out on her own, starting her own business, and was able to teach herself website design and video editing as she wanted to be able to do anything her clients desired and not lose the opportunity to learn new things by farming jobs out. Each client and job opportunity was highly rewarding to her.
After being in Orlando over 20 years, opportunity and family drew Stephanie, her significant other and dog Axel back to Sarasota where she is starting another chapter in life.
“I couldn’t be happier being in this beautiful town again and living so minutes from the beach. Being close to my parents and twin cousins and kids is a blessing. The stars aligned to bring me back here.”
Being the self-proclaimed “Jill of all trades”, Stephanie continues her career in marketing and design while she drives back to Orlando frequently to see her best friends and visit old clients.
