About Us


Two of the area’s most successful teams of highly skilled real estate professionals, the Schemmel Group and the Soda Group, have joined forces to become the Schemmel Soda Group. For many years, each team has been ranked among the top agent teams in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Combining their decades of great success, significant sales and expert market knowledge, the Schemmel Soda Group can provide the highest level of service throughout the buying and selling process to residential customers, from the barrier islands and mainland waterfront neighborhoods to the area’s golf course communities, including Lakewood Ranch, Palmer Ranch and beyond.
