Manatee really came through when we were running out of options when trying to sell our Dad’s home. We didn’t have the cash to fix it up, and we had to quickly relocate due to a new job offer. Andrew was able to close quickly and their offer was very fair. Thanks guys!

Who is Manatee

First, thank you for taking the time to visit our website! Manatee was born out of a love for the gulf coast community, and a tribute to both the county where it all began as well as it’s beloved mascot who we all adored! (RIP Snooty…). We started this company because we believe in the gulf coast and want to continue to pour into serving this community for years to come!

We are local suncoast residents with Michigan roots that focus on buying properties off-market (with no commissions) for cash. We are not typical “flippers” or “investors” looking to pay pennies on the dollar. We are local Floridians and Michiganders with families, and we focus on buying rental properties. This allows us to make fair market value offers based on comparable sales and needed repairs. 

PS: We’ve also recently launched our first Michigan location, now buying in Gaylord, MI, Otsego Lake, and the surrounding Otsego county!

Our Mission plainly is to serve our customers relentlessly with the highest level of service and integrity! As a company focused on buy & hold we believe in providing safe, clean, and affordable housing for families in the greater Bradenton & Sarasota area. We want to make sure that our families are taken care of in the same way we provide for our own. Helping to serve you best is the only way we would ever expect to earn your business and trust.

Andrew DeWeerd – Director of “Show You The Money”

Okay, so that’s a made up title.. But when you call Manatee or set up an appointment, Andrew is who you will be talking to 9 out of 10 times! Andrew first moved to Bradenton in 2015, and has been investing into the Southwest Florida community ever since! He is a huge football fan with Michigan roots, loves hiking, traveling, competing, and relaxing on the couch with his dog. Faith, family, football, food – that’s the good stuff 🙂
