Welcome to EABOR
Meet President Kathi Obendorfer
This has been a year of thankfulness and gratitude!
Being employed as a manufacturer’s representative in the boating industry at the time, I traveled the southeastern United States frequently and came to the Englewood area beginning in 2006 approximately 6 times per year as my second largest account was located on Lemon Bay. Little did I know that I would purchase a home on Manasota Key in 2008 and make a permanent move to paradise in 2009.
Becoming a licensed Realtor® in 2010, I fell deeply in love with the area and believe this must be what heaven looks like. Englewood is the smallest community that I have lived in personally, but by far, the most colossal.
I have seen the real estate industry rebound over the last 8 years, and am so proud to be a resident of the Englewood area and to be part of our amazing Realtor® Family.
I would like to share a story that is close to my heart and will give you more insight to the Englewood Area. We lost our dog while traveling out of the country for 6 days, 7 hours and 10 minutes, and the “Realtor® Family” and Community rallied the troops and our story had a very happy ending! We found Buster…that showcases the power and passion of this community.
So why did I raise my hand when I was asked to serve as a volunteer leader on the Englewood Area Board of Realtors®? Because giving back to an organization and community that has given so much to me is what “paying it forward” is all about.
Englewood has a thriving real estate market, well recognized schools, beautiful beaches, sunny skies, amazing sunsets, Gulf blue waters, all which are kept safe by our first responders and an abundance of organizations that always lend a helping hand.
Protecting private property rights and promoting home ownership is so important to our community and its economy, and I am proud to be a Realtor® and humbled to serve as your 2018 President of the Englewood Area Board of Realtors®.
If you have any questions regarding the Englewood Area Board of Realtors or the Englewood community, please reach out to me.
