About DWELL Real Estate

Marc Rasmussen has been a Sarasota resident since 1994. He graduated from University of Florida that same year with a degree in Finance, an area in which he worked for the next 6 years. After extensive work in the finance arena, including mortgage lending, which introduced him to real estate in 1998, Marc began selling real estate in 2000.

Marc saw an opportunity in internet marketing, and pioneered his own website with a client-centered focus that allows buyers to easily search through properties to fit their specific needs. His website quickly became one of the top resources for prospective Sarasota buyers, usually topping the Google ratings. A top producing agent at several high-profile Sarasota real estate firms, such as RE/MAX Alliance, SKY Sotheby’s, and Michael Saunders, Marc decided to propel his internet success into his own business, opening DWELL Real Estate in 2011.

With his team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable realtors, DWELL’s mission is to raise the standards of Sarasota real estate. High levels of professionalism, strong and thorough communication with the clientele, and successfully getting our clients to the closing table are the main missions of the firm.


“We just finished our second purchase transaction with Marc Rasmussen. I cannot say enough about his professionalism, his knowledge, and his ability to provide wise counsel and perspective during what can be a very stressful period. About 5 years ago we bought our first condo with Marc as our buyers’ agent. As buyers, we were 2 related households, and Marc successfully threaded through the differing concerns and questions of each of us and provided sound advice regarding selection and competing bids. We bought the condo at a great price with repairs completed and all parties happy. When 2 of us found a second condo unexpectedly, there was no question that we would call Marc again. This time we were 1000 miles away and were buying sight unseen on a very tight timeframe. I can’t imagine trusting anyone else to handle such a complex arrangement – Marc made numerous trips to the condo, sent detailed pictures, video, and observations, dealt with pricing negotiations, made sure the repairs got done, and even cleaned out the unit when the seller failed to remove personal items. His advice and steady counsel, as well as his calm demeanor when the unexpected occurs, are exceptional. I always felt that he was on our side and had our best interests in mind. We wholeheartedly recommend Marc!”

Execellent! Marc Rasmussen with Dwell Real Estate was extremely helpful. I live in Chicago but will be moving to Sarasota, FL and wanted to live in downtown. Marc handled my transaction with care and professionalism. He is very attentive and responded to all of my questions promptly. My transaction was not easy one because of hassles from the seller. Marc's experience showed throughout the entire purchase. I am so happy that I chose him as my agent.

I am an investor and I have been using Jason as my agent for a few years now. He has helped me purchase multiple homes and vacant lots and he is extremely competent in getting me the best deals possible. I would not even think of going anywhere else as I am 100% satisfied with his work. If you want the best service available in the Southwest Florida area, just give Jason a call you will not be disappointed!

Marc, I appreciate the time that you spent with Kerry and me to find a place in Sarasota. I was really impressed with your knowledge of the area and your skills during the actual transaction. Thanks. I was initially surprised that you (as the owner) picked up the phone when I first called....and that you spent so much time educating me on the phone before we even met. I was even more impressed that your first reaction wasn't to pass me off when you realized I wasn't in the big dollar range. I am glad that your efforts resulted in a sale. We are excited about the house and are looking forward to spending as much time as possible in Sarasota. Happy to serve as a reference if you ever need one. Thanks again!


We just closed on a waterfront single family home in Bradenton . Cathy Loeppke was fantastic through the whole buying experience. We presently live in New Jersey and closed absentee . Right from the start Cathy listened to what we were looking for and sent us by email about 28 homes that fit the bill. We then flew down and she did not waste any time and started showing us some very nice houses of the 28 she sent us we looked at around 15 of them and ended up buying the first home that we looked at. I cannot say enough great things about doing business with Cathy.

We chose to work with Dwell Real Estate to help us find a vacation/second home in the greater Bradenton/Sarasota area. It was a pleasure to work with Walter Winship III. We found his level of commitment and professionalism went well beyond what we had expected. His attention to detail and follow through during AND after the process was excellent. We closed on our condo at Heritage Harbour last month and are now enjoying our little piece of paradise. We highly recommend Walter and Dwell R.E. for all your real estate needs.
