Born a Florida Native, Sandi moved with her family to Nebraska at a very young age. Years later, her family relocated to East Texas where she graduated high school and attended East Texas State University. Opportunity then sent her to live in North Carolina for a short time until Sandi eventually found her way back to her Native State of Florida where she has lived for the past 16 years. She resides in the charming Gulf side town of Venice with her husband, their three boys, (one currently studying at St. Leo University), and their adored family pet, Myah, The Fluffly Corgi.
Sandi is passionate about helping others to achieve their dreams and goals. She discovered her interest in real estate while working in new home construction for a National home builder in Sarasota. A few years later, she was presented with an opportunity to manage luxury estates on Casey Key. This prompted Sandi to form her own property and personal concierge business and obtain her real estate license.
Sandi’s combined knowledge of the local housing market, luxury estates and experience in providing personalized service to her customers is unparalleled. She works diligently and believes communication is a significant part of a successful relationship. She is proud to be a part of the Gulf Shores Realty Team, an independent brokerage firm geared towards individual and personalized service that has been the very model of her own successful business.
During her down-time, Sandi enjoys spending time with her boys, going to sporting events, taking day trips, and exploring all that the community of Venice has to offer. You might spot her frequenting the local restaurants, perusing the shops downtown, or at any community event; especially if it is Corgi friendly! Discovery has always been a passion of Sandi’s whether in nature, history or life. She is a foodie and loves to sample what pleases the pallet! Her mid-western work ethic, past experiences with relocation, understanding of new construction, and knowledge of luxury estates and the local market, combined with her passion for helping others reach their goals and dreams is sure to make you feel at ease during your real estate transaction!

Sandi Ward's Testimonials
NORTH PORT, FL – Being a real estate investor can be completely frustrating if you are doing everything yourself with the wrong people, or extremely rewarding if you have the right team and strategy protecting and promoting your investment.
I heard that Gulf Shore Realty specialized in luxury homes listings and it had a tremendously successful track record of sales – with a reputation for being among the best real estate companies in West Florida and across the state. Their network of clients, buyers and professionals was impressive and First-Class.
So, when I reached out to them one sales agent took on a listing that was not luxurious but a cute, simple starter home with lots of potential. It was my home and the agent was Sandi Ward. She immediately got onboard with me, guiding me through the upgrades of what the home needed for its optimum stage, ready to be put on the market. Afterwards, Sandi hired a real estate photography professional who created awesome photos of the property, including interiors, exteriors and aerial. Her marketing cards and magazine ads were fantastic and began to generate calls and inquiries almost immediately.
Truth be told, the house was on the market for over 6 months and then the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt on the economy – right in the best month for home sales in Florida. I didn’t give up on Sandi and Sandi didn’t give up on the property – she believed in it as much as I did even after reducing the price 3 times throughout this period. And then, by the 8th month on the market, we received an offer for higher than our listing price! It’s true. We knew this was the right buyer and began the process of the contract for sale right away. It had a lot of hurtles; a lot of unexpected barriers. But Sandi’s spirit was clear: be patience and persevere. That’s what I admire most about Sandi. She never wavered from her intention of selling the property to the right buyer and we all gained and were happy because of her perseverance, dedication and hard work. Thanks Sandi – you are the best!

I wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how happy we have been with Sandi. Simply put, she is excellent. She has a great personality, is extremely knowledgeable and responsive, and provides potential buyers like us with a sense of confidence when researching home options. The schedule she laid out for us on Saturday allowed us to get a very good feel for the Venice area and the different home options. As a result of what we saw, we are now working on submitting an offer for a townhome in the Gran Paradiso community.
Sandi was a great Realtor. We were first time home buyers and Sandi made the experience smooth and was quick to answer any questions we had loved her and Gulf Shores Realty.
Faith and Kevin - Venice Florida
From our first contact, Sandi was very responsive and extremely helpful in reviewing the MANY options we had in our new area of Venice. Her insight into the different communities, their pros and cons, was invaluable in helping us to focus on those places which really matched our needs. We HIGHLY recommend Sandi for any prospective buyers!
Greg and Susan - Venice FL
We couldn’t have found a better Realtor. Sandi is professional, personable, so very patient and an absolute pleasure to work with. She was always on top of her game. She went above and beyond to find us the perfect home. When we first contacted her we thought we knew what we wanted but Sandi found us exactly what we wanted without us even knowing it. Our new Florida home is perfect. We couldn’t be happier and we owe it all to Sandi Ward. We can’t thank you enough. If you need a Realtor, we highly recommended Sandi at Gulf Shores Realty.
Paul and Nina - Long Island
Sandi is consistently reliable. She delivers on what she promises. She offers suggestions that were very helpful in negotiation for the purchase of a condo. Her vast life experiences, including property management, gives her a unique perspective on many aspects of real estate. This only enhances her work. Sandi has a wide knowledge base that extends beyond a basic realtor. In addition, Sandi is a genuinely wonderful person. I made arrangements to meet Sandi and see some properties, when I came for a short visit to Florida. She was helpful with finding a place for me to stay so I could see the area and offered advice regarding local places to go to make the trip easier and more productive. She helped us handle our purchase mostly via the internet and email, but she was always available when we needed to ask a more urgent question. My husband and I have been so impressed with Sandi, can't say a bad thing about her.
Jeff & Germaine Fritz - Siesta Key
Sandi was very accommodating, knowledgeable and all around great person to have on our side as we looked to purchase our home. She worked hard for us to get the best price possible and we greatly appreciated her efforts. We were not familiar with a lot of the details in purchasing a home in state of Florida and she proved to be invaluable for us. We would recommend her all day long without hesitation. She is excellent at what she does.
Don and Tammy - Massachusetts

Janet and Joe C - Venice FL
I had the privilege of working with Sandi Ward on the purchase of my home in Venice in September of 2015. Sandi is an extremely competent and well versed real estate agent. She was in constant contact with with me at every step of the process, a quality that was most important to me. There is no other real estate agent I would consider using. In my book, she is the best!
Robin Chiusano - Venice, FL

Sandi Ward went above and beyond when helping us purchase a home in Venice. She provided us with all the necessary information, making the process as smooth and pain-free as possible. Sandi is smart, funny, patient, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. She is truly the best!
Liz and Don - Venice
Gulf Shores Realty is the ONLY place to go if you're shopping for property in the Venice, FL area. Our realtor, Sandi Ward was knowledgeable, patient and always made the time for us when we were shopping for our Florida home. When we found our home she helped us navigate the process, and since we were buying a seasonal home she gave us great advice and recommendations on people and companies that we could reach out to for information and services (home insurance, a handy man, landscaping companies, etc.) - things we were going to need but no idea where to start! I can't say enough good things about her - she is simply the best there is! If you are looking for a home in the area (seasonal, retirement or if you're just looking to move to the area) please reach out to her - I know you will feel the same way we do! Thank you Sandi!!!
Michelle and Brian - Westborough, MA
