Two Top Real Estate Teams Merge, Creating the Schemmel Soda Group

Premier Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce that two leading real estate teams, the Schemmel Group and The Soda Group, have merged to become the Schemmel Soda Group. Combining the talents of experienced and highly skilled professionals who rank among the top REALTORS® in Sarasota and Manatee Counties, the new group will serve residential customers from the barrier islands and mainland waterfront to the area’s golf course communities, Lakewood Ranch, Palmer Ranch and beyond.
The Schemmel Soda Group offers an unprecedented track record in several key market segments:
“The dynamics of the luxury real estate market require a vastly higher level of service and support than just a few years ago. The combined forces of the Schemmel Soda Group not only expand market reach but provide customers with an extensive marketing and support team to ensure every opportunity and every customer need is not only met but exceeded.”
“We have admired the Schemmel’s work ethic and style through the years. That is exactly how Jim and I run our business. It just makes sense to create a phenomenon in the real estate world — two top teams joining forces, creating a powerhouse of knowledgeable and professional agents to be able to take advantage of our overlapping geographical areas.”
“Our team of consummate professionals represents the very best in our industry. With the power of The Soda Group in Lakewood Ranch and throughout the market, we will achieve unprecedented reach in Sarasota and Manatee counties while providing superior customer care and expert market intelligence for our valued clientele.”
– Joel Schemmel, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty
