Wilbur Boyd Realty was established in 1952 serving Manatee and Sarasota Counties. The Boyd Companies Dominated the Manatee Market as well as major influence in Sarasota County. The Boyd Family contribution to Sarasota started mid century and continues today. Milt May is a Batting Coach for the Baltimore Orioles based in Sarasota. After more than 30 years traveling in Major League Baseball coming home to Sarasota is a perfect fit. The Boyd May family has served on several Boards influencing both professional growth as well as the Sarasota Arts. And cultural scene including Ringling, Van Wezel and New College.
Brenda Boyd May and Milton May have carried on the real estate legacy opening Boyd Realty in 1984. The May family’s son Scott May is an active realtor in the company and plans to carry on the Boyd May ownership with help from Merrily May Mundy and cousin Stephanie Boyd Mitchell. The Boyd Realty team are all considered family. We believe in synergy and we value loyalty. From Wilbur Boyd Realty to Boyd Realty the Boyd May Family is synonymous with success!
Today Boyd Realty focuses on Character and Charm in the Manatee and Sarasota Market. We are a generational company and we appreciate the quality of the past integrated and updated for today. The Boyd team has the ability to influence and propel a tired established neighborhood into a HOT HOOD!!! Respecting the past does not indicate losing touch with today!! Statistics show that new builds dominate, If a new build includes all the character upgrades the price is too high for most younger buyers. The Hipsters want wood floors, built ins and yes they want a yard!!! Older homes were built solid and the cost of remodel is many times less than a new build! The River District in Bradenton is a classic old Florida Example of a rebirth of the past!
The whimsical Boyd Fish Logo shows our colorful and Trendy side. Our longevity in the business proves our established high end capability. Our signs will be noticed in the sea of corporate navy blue. The Boyd Fish has become akin to the Good House Keeping Seal of approval in the River District! We are not the Biggest fish in the Sea but we swim with the sharks everyday!!!!
The Second Home Investment Market is a Major focus of the Boyd Team. The Boyd Office is located on Historical Pine Ave in Anna Maria. Pine Cottage is the summer home for Brenda and Milt May. The Boyd Corporation built many condo and houses on Anna Maria Island and still influences the market today. Lido Beach and Long Boat Key are part of our past and our future!
