Jeff LaBelle Financial Advisor Welcomes You to Sarasota, Florida

Although we are saddened by the devastation south of us from Hurricane Ian, Sarasota was barely scathed. "As a long-time resident and business owner in Sarasota, I have watched it grow and thrive", said Jeff LaBelle.   Downtown Sarasota is a vibrant community, with younger families moving in and expanding outside of downtown to Lakewood Ranch and Palmer Ranch. Sarasota is beautiful with its award-winning beach, Siesta Key Beach, and nearby Longboat Key, Lido Key, and Casey Key. St. Petersburg, Tampa, and Clearwater are all close by.   Sarasota is a very special place because there is a lot of culture here. Some cultural centers include the Ringling Museum, the Cad'zan, Opera, Florida Studio Theater, Van Wezel for concerts, and well-known performers. There is even the Sarasota Sailor Circus, and much more! Everything is right in downtown Sarasota and close to the airports. Sarasota Airport is only about 10-15 minutes away, and easy to get to. The Tampa airport is only about an hour away.   Of course, the nice weather is a big attraction. Sunny almost every day which means outdoor activities year-round. There must be at least 100 golf courses within a half hour from here. Fishing, Tennis, Boating, and with the recently completed Legacy Trail, you can walk or bike from downtown Sarasota to downtown Venice or anywhere in between! The TampaBay sports teams are close by, including The Rays, The Bucs, and The Lightning.   "Many newcomers are thrilled with the low tax structure in Florida. There is no state tax or estate tax. We have inflationary times today, and I find the cost of living here is a lot less than in other major cities. So a lot of people are moving down here because it's more affordable. They can retire and be in a beautiful city, like Sarasota," said Jeff LaBelle.   "If you decide to visit, look me up. I would love to meet you and guide you around the area."   Jeff LaBelle, Gulf Coast Wealth Advisors  +1 941-362-0700
