I specialize in selling condos and homes throughout Bradenton,
Sarasota and Anna Maria Island beach areas. My husband and I have lived in sunny Florida since 1992 - prior to that Marlboro, MA was home for 30+ yrs. Being a daughter of a military officer meant moving every few years (including 3 yrs in France as a teenager.) Peter & I married in Tokyo; he was a tech rep at a USAF base in northern Japan. We were there about 2 yrs before returning to the US. We have 2 sons in MA, a daughter in CA and 3 (terrific) grandkids.
Prior to a career in Real Estate, I worked for Digital Equipment Corp (DEC) 15 yrs in a variety of positions; with my last 5 years as a software product mgr. in the Unix Mail Eng Grp (EUEG) in Reading, England. Pete and I both chose DEC's special early retirement package when the company downsized in 1992. I found a wonderful '2nd career' as a Realtor in Bradenton when being 'retired' got tiring.
I became Bayshore Realty's top producer in my 3rd year and this my 25th year with the company. Much of my business is referrals or repeat customers - I'm grateful - hopefully means I’m doing something right! Additionally, there's much useful information and many tools for my customers on my website: judydurant.com. I am brave, thrifty and reverent, and always prepared!
Judy is a fantastic and great realtor. She helped us with seeing and walking-thru the condo both on internet via her phone and physically when we got there. She is so honest that whatever she advertised was exactly the way it is in fact. She let us feel so comfortable to make our final decision to buy the condo. She helped us a lot to make the condo ours and all kinds of paperwork. If we deal with another home/condo buy/sell in the future we will definitely pick her as our realtor. There is no question we recommend her to others as a realtor to work with. Thank you very much Judy. Yasemin & Ibrahim Cakal
Judy Durant is industrious, efficient, kind, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. Her experience with the Bradenton and her local contacts helped me to buy a property very quickly and with minimal issues. We will be using Judy again in the future and highly reccomend her to others.

I have bought and sold homes across the country. I have used realtors in the past trying to buy property in Sarasota and Manatee County and this experience was the best one yet!! Judy was prompt to answer my phone calls and questions and if she was not sure, she found out and got back to me immediately!! She went above and beyond contacting the listing agent and the other parties involved and made my home buying process as smooth as possible. Closing was a breeze and I have her to thank for easing my mind that things would be done AND they were!! I would definitely recommend Judy Durant from Bayshore Realty for any of your real estate needs!! I was not even looking this time to buy a property and I told her that and she still was professional and courteous and guess what I ended being an owner of a new condo!! On to more projects and perhaps other investments and I have Judy to thank!! She's the best!! HANDS DOWN!!
