Seven former Wagner agents join Michael Saunders & Co.

by: Robin Hartill Managing Editor

Cathy Meldahl, former branch manager at Wagner Realty’s Longboat Key office, has joined Michael Saunders & Co. as a sales associate. Former Wagner agents Bill Greene, Karen Ankerstar, Jack McCormick, Tama Traberman, Susan Smith and Dee Dee Burke have also joined Michael Saunders & Co.

Meldahl, Greene, Ankerstar, McCormick and Traberman will work in the mid-Key office. Smith will work in either the mid-Key office or St. Armands Circle office. Burke will work out of the St. Armands Circle office.

Meldahl said that her move will allow her to give up management duties in order to focus on listing and selling properties.

“Michael Saunders & Co. was a good fit for me,” Meldahl said. “There’s the mid-Key location and the tools that (the company) has to offer buyers and sellers. It’s unbelievable the resources we have at our fingertips.”

Meldahl is originally from Clarksdale, Miss., and moved to Longboat Key in 1973, after two weeks of vacationing on the island. She and her husband, Craig, lived at and managed the former Golden Beach, now Wicker Inn.

Meldahl entered the real-estate business in 1978 as a property/rental manager and earned her Florida real-estate salesman license, and then her broker’s license, in 1983. She has earned many designations during her career, the most recent of which were the Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS) and Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource (SSFR) designations.
She served as branch manager of Wagner Realty’s Longboat Key office for eight years.

Meldahl is an active member of the Longbeach Village Association, Longboat Key Historical Society, Longboat Key Garden Club and Longboat Key Center for the Arts, a Division of Ringling College of Art and Design.
