About Anja


Anja Deichmann is originally from Munich, Germany, where she obtained her degree in marketing before moving to New York. She lived and worked in NYC for almost a decade and then, during a short vacation, fell in love with Sarasota and decided to make it her home. From the very beginning of her real estate career that started in 2005, Anja put emphasis on her mission to exceed her clients’ expectations, to reach their goals and to earn their trust and their referrals. Anja is a good listener and a competent problem-solver and negotiator.

Anja was first introduced to Heritage Oaks Golf & Country Club in 2006 when she accepted a position there as property manager for more than 90 seasonal rentals, while she also listed and sold properties outside the community. During that time, Anja became very familiar with Heritage Oaks and the different property styles. Anja experienced first hand the value and unique attributes of Heritage Oaks and became very partial to the community. In 2009 she left the rental agency and joined Michael Saunders & Co. to pursue her goals to become a top producing agent with the leading company in town. Because of her strong ties to and her love for Heritage Oaks, she continued bringing her buyers and started working with sellers. As a result, about 30% of her business continues to take place in Heritage Oaks year after year.

Because Anja does not only sell in Heritage Oaks, she always compares the inventory outside of the community to the properties within the gates. She is familiar with price points, communities and offered lifestyles throughout the Venice, Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch area. Anja considers herself an “Ambassador” of Heritage Oaks because she strongly believes in its outstanding value compared to other bundled communities.

An explorer at heart, Anja has experienced many different lifestyles in Sarasota. She has lived on Longboat Key, Lido Key and Siesta Key as well as on the mainland. She is a passionate equestrian and an avid animal lover. She was the founder and president of a non-profit horse rescue organization and rescued and rehabilitated more than 80 horses in the NY, NJ and PA area. Horses have been her love and passion since the age of 6 and always have played an important part in her life.  Her black Friesian stallion "Pier" is her pride and joy.

Anja keeps a very close bond with her family in Munich, Germany, especially with her prominent architect father. They frequently exchange views and news about architectural trends and developments.

Goal-oriented, enthusiastic and highly motivated, Anja truly loves what she does and consistently ranks among the top producing agents of Michael Saunders & Co. Anja values your business and looks forward to a relationship with you based on honest communication, trust and appreciation.
