Who We Are.

Although The Floridian Club of Sarasota is brand new, it already has quite a few years behind it — what can we say, we believe in the long-term. With a combined more than 75 years of experience in the fields of real estate acquisition, planning, design, general contracting, sales, leasing, marketing and management, you could say The Floridian Club is in experienced hands.




Barrington Group, Inc. has been in business 43 years and is owned by Larry Lieberman, President. The senior executives are Scott Bradley, CPA, CFO and Vice President and Ronda Gallehue, Vice President. Both Scott and Ronda have been with BGI for nearly 30 years. BGI also employs approximately 125 individuals nationwide, many of which have been with the company for many years. As you’ve likely gathered, BGI is built upon the belief that if you treat people right, they will stick around a while — and that can be seen in the history of both BGI’s employees and community residents.

Starting in Columbus, Ohio with a family background in the rental apartment business, Larry Lieberman began acquiring distressed multi-family rental properties, renovating and repositioning the properties, applying skilled leasing and management, thereby dramatically improving the properties’ performance and asset value. Now, the Barrington Group then expanded throughout the Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Georgia, Texas and Florida markets.

BGI has been developing The Floridian Club of Sarasota for more than five years, and is ecstatic to finally be able to share it with you.
