About Tom Kramer

We live in a cold, northeast climate, and purchased this home as part of our long-term retirement plan. Kelly (me) is an HR Professional, and Tom is an airline pilot. We are both quite a ways from saying goodbye to our jobs, but felt its never too early to dream! We explored different parts of FL before settling on Englewood. It is so close to the airport (Sarasota), but it is also convenient to Tampa and Ft Meyers, so when looking for reasonable airfare, there are several options.

Why Tom Kramer chose Overbrook Gardens

After looking at countless properties, we walked in the front door of 1966 Greenlawn and it just felt perfect. From the front door, you can see clear out to the canal as the house is really open. The prevous owner took meticulous care of it, and the pool area is particularly inviting. Our plan is to rent it out on a limited basis, but to 30 day plus renters only. Why? It's a home, not a hotel room, and we want others to enjoy it in the way we hope to some day. Although there are 3 bedrooms, we prefer to ONLY rent up to 4 adults. The 3rd bedroom doesn't have it's own bathroom, and the bed is a twin trundle. Would consider 6 if 2 of them are children!

Do you like to fish and have your own boat? You will love this place with its 75 feet of frontage on the canal. We also allow dogs, however we limit the number and restrict some breeds. This is a residential neighborhood, and it's important to respect that. We have 3 of our own, so we get it. Tell us about your dog and we will try to work something out. Sorry cat lovers, we love them too, but allergies mean we have to ban them.
